It’s time to take up a style challenge: STYLING BASIC T-shirts! Now before you go off and dismissively laugh in my face ask yourself this: when was the last time you ever wore a basic tee somewhere or anywhere? Sleep and moping around the house does not count.
Also, question excludes any style gimmick the tee may hold. That’s right, no glitter, no beads, no nothing. Well, okay maybe a teeny tiny text, or pattern. But that’s just because I like you.
With trends like mismatched prints, bold colors and patterns clearly it’s no wonder our eyes and finances are swung by the fashion extravaganza the moment we pop into a store. And really, who can blame us? It’s all a circus and mad glitzy world out there, but today I dare you to forget everything you ever knew about fashion.
What if simple became the new fabulous? Wouldn’t that be amazing? On this note I dare you to style a plain tee and consider wearing one anywhere. Would you?
We may think wearing and styling a simple tee is such a piece of cake, yet the moment you’re wearing one, stripped off of all the sartorial extras you feel a bit weird, as if you’re too dressed down.
For sporty casual styles, basic tees are a uniform really. Sneakers, wedges or flat sandals on and you’ve got the weekend look going on. There are cutoffs or miniskirts for summer season. The moment you clash a basic tee with a smarter outfit – think pencil skirts, trousers, heels, blazers – you get a very chic understated sophisticated look.
Simplicity in style is quite chic and it sometimes does feel as if we need a dose of relaxed vibe in our lives. There’s a certain elegance, freshness and sexiness in wearing a pair of jeans and a simple T-shirt, or a pencil skirt and a basic tee. Perhaps it has to do with confidence and inner style. Few of us can pull off such a look and feel great in it elsewhere than the comfort of our homes.
