If you’re of the opinion that t-shirts are only for kids, or men, or days when you’re unlikely to leave the house, we wholeheartedly invite you to think again. Many luxe brands are doing wonderful things with the basic tee, making it possible for you to feel fancy and comfy in one fell swoop. But like any basic piece of apparel, how you style it can make or break a look. Since we’re in the business of making looks, here are a few tried and tested tips for rocking that t-shirt with confidence.
1. Pay attention to fit. We’re in the golden age of t-shirts now, with expert brands like Goldie (proudly featured in our shop on 1st Street in Sarasota) who specialize in making tees that truly suit a woman’s body. A well-made t-shirt can actually accentuate your curves instead of hiding them. Luxe cottons cling in a way that flatters, yet you can still wash them and dry them with minimal effort
2. Small details go a long way. If you’re hoping to take a t-shirt ensemble from day to night, it’s the little details that can pull an outfit together in a way that truly reflects your style. Some of our all-time favorite t-shirts sport a few ruffles here and there, or an embroidered collar or metallic threads woven into the mix. Alternately, statement earrings or a chunky necklace can bring even the most minimal of tees into the 21st century.
3. Let your shoes have the final say!
You’re probably not surprised to hear us say it, but we highly recommend leveraging your shoe game! The “right” pair of shoes will have the effect of communicating the message you ultimately want to broadcast. If you’re going for casual day-to-night, a fun pump or wedge will upgrade the tee from comfy to fancy.
And if you want to wear a t-shirt and skirt, but don’t want to appear overly feminine, a fun fashion sneaker or metallic flip-flop will keep your look casual without appearing last-minute or half-baked.
Above all, have fun, take risks, and let your sense of inner joy guide the way!
