You can never go wrong with the classic jeans and tee combo, right?! The classic and comfy staple outfit can be worn pretty much anywhere, but it might not always look appropriate for the occasion. Luckily, we have Andrea Corson of La Label Junkie with us today to show us 5 ways to spice up your go-to look! By adding some fun accessories, like a leather jacket or fun scarf, you can take your outfit to the next level. If you aren’t out just running errands, try adding a great pair of heels to add some style. We love the way this looks! Check out Andrea’s outfit and styling tips below:
The jeans + tee combo is timeless for a reason: It’s the perfect mixture of cool kid, ease, & comfort. But it’s also easy to get stuck in a rut with this go-to. We ladies all know the struggle of finding the perfect pair of jeans! I don’t know about you, but once I’ve discovered the ones that slim here and lift there, you practically have to pry them out of my hands. Out for errands, to grab a quick cup to coffee..it starts to become difficult to know where the denim ends and I begin. You with me? On the off-chance that you are, you may be looking for a few ways to switch up the iconic jeans/tee pairing. Try one of these five easy tricks of the trade for a quick and easy update on your way out the door.
1) Add a killer leather jacket
There’s really no easier way to look put together when you have zero time than by throwing on a leather moto jacket. Effortless, slight edgy, with just a hint of Parisian (Oh this old thing? Just picked it up at a vintage shop along the Seine. NBD.). Add a pair of lace up flats or a tailored boot and grab some sunglasses as you head out the door.
2) Roll your jeans or tuck in your tee
Don’t underestimate the power of simply tucking in your shirt or rolling your jeans. The attention to detail kicks things up a notch, especially when your outfit is rooted in simplicity. Since you’re nearly there, top it all off with a few minimalist accessories and a pair of pointy-toe flats for a chic and modern look.
3) Switch up your shoes
Your choice of shoe can completely upgrade an outfit (we’re talking Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls after the makeover, y’all). With endless possibilities only limited by your imagination, consider slipping on a bright heel, an over-the-knee boot, or even metallic flats. Each one can drastically change up the finished product.
4) It’s all about the scarf
Scarves, oh scarves..my favorite way to inject a little color and interest into an otherwise ordinary outfit. Play with patterns or stick with a solid if you want to play up other areas of your outfit. A red scarf with red booties? Well aren’t you fancy. Bonus points for adding an equestrian belt and a cozy knit.
5) Change up the classic white tee blue jean to black on black or grey with white
The white on blue may act as default for most of us, but work a few other color palettes into the mix that are just as uncomplicated to put together. Or if you’re really feeling adventurous, try on some stripes for size. I know..now we’re just getting crazy up in here. It’ll keep things fresh when you’re on day 21 of a jeans/tee variation.
