I’ve always been a bit of a daydreamer, so this T-shirt is quite appropriate (rêveur is French for dreamer). I used to get told off by my teachers frequently for staring out of the window instead of concentrating on what I was supposed to be doing. I have a low boredom threshold, but one outfit I never tire of is jeans and a T-shirt. Now the weather is cooler it’s my go-to off duty uniform.
Even with such a simple combination, it’s possible to make it interesting…it’s all in the details. These flared hem jeans are a fun alternative to plain skinnies, and are perfect for drawing attention to quirky shoes. I chose these slingbacks because I like the mix of polka dots with the black and white stripes on the T-shirt. Having a bag to match them brings it all together nicely.
Not so long ago I wouldn’t have worn a T-shirt because I thought they made me look too blocky, but now they’re one of my wardrobe staples. It helps that there are so many fun options (remember my banana T-shirt?). Getting the right fit and a good quality fabric makes a big difference. I like the longer length of this red one from Boohoo; it works well with slim-fitting jeans or trousers, and can be knotted at the front if you want to make it shorter (one of my favourite tricks!).
Dressing up jeans and a T-shirt is easy: just add ruffles, sequins, polka dots…or whatever takes your fancy!
A plain black jacket would have felt a bit boring, so I pulled out this old one from Aftershock. The sequinned lapels add a subtle shimmer…well why save sequins for evenings? Dressing up jeans and a T-shirt is easy: just add ruffles, sequins, polka dots…or whatever takes your fancy!
Do you like to dress up jeans and a T-shirt, or keep it casual instead?
