Waking up and thinking of what to wear are two dreading things life throws at me early in the morning. (I’m so not a morning person if you can ‘t tell lol ) Whenever I forget to prepare an outfit the night before, I will always rummage through every nook end places of my closet and would still end up empty handed. I guess I’m just looking for an excuse to shop more coz I’m such a shopaholic. But seriously speaking, everytime I’m in a rush and nothing seems to fit, I will always turn to my t-shirt pile and next thing I know, I’m out the door. T-shirts are such a staple in my wardrobe because they are so easy to style from casual to glam and this is my take on it.
For me, you can never go wrong in pairing a plain tee with any high waisted bottom, in this case, cropped jeans.
Adding a belt is such a crucial accent piece in this look because it can ruin or make the outfit so make sure to find the right size and color to go with the whole style.
Jackets and bags are of important pieces to complete a look too. Throwing on a jersey jacket like this or a leather jacket makes an outfit looks edgier because it spices up the outfit and serves as a warmer on cold nights.
Any bags will do as well, I just felt like a sling black bag goes better with this outfit than a backpack but you can if you prefer a sporty look.
Using heels is one great way to achieve a more put together look as well and mules are just 1 great example. Who wouldn’t want an extra added height right? It should hold a part in your closet because it’s not as formal as a regular stiletto but they still have a sophisticated vibe to them. (Comfortability is the key! )
Over all, never under estimate the power of a good old t-shirt. They might be just a piece of cloth but you’ll never know when you’ll need them.
How about you, what’s your go-to outfit?
