Jeans and T-shirts are the most commonly worn casual clothes. Nothing is as effortless to match with jeans as a t-shirt. However, if this is not done properly, you can end up looking quite sloppy like my good neighbour Solange. Straight from a work event on Friday, she came to join me and my friends at our favourite spot in the city. She looked plain and obviously stood out like a sore thumb at the glamourous work event.
To avoid frowns and whispers when you choose to don this combo, you have to make the whole casual appearance look more captivating. Here are a few tips how a woman can accessorise the casual jeans and t-shirt and look chic.
Necklaces: Contrasting necklace colours is way better than going ‘matchy-matchy’. For example, black or white necklaces are great for day outs while silver or bronze necklaces are good for a night out.
Jacket: Especially during the cold and rainy season, you should try different types of jackets and add flair to the plain t-shirt and jeans look. Try to get fashionable ones that fit you perfectly.
Bracelets: Not many women like wearing bracelets but funky bracelets with beads and stones can add glam to the casual look. You can easily carry the hippy look by covering your wrist with funky beaded bracelets.
Scarves: Just like the jackets, scarves too can ‘style up’ the plain from the jeans and T-shirt. They are feminine and can also be worn at office.
Shoes: Wearing the right shoes matters. A cute day look can be completed with flat bally shoes while high heel stilettos are ideal and fashionable addition for a night out. Boots, if chosen correctly, can give your combo a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’, leaving you looking good.
