“Dress Up Your Basics: Jeans and a tee is a classic outfit starter…for this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look and dress it up to show off your personal style.”
I try to follow a 3-step rule when assembling an outfit. Before, I typically overlooked steps 2 and 3, but have come to realize that the extra bit effort goes a long way in adding dimension to an outfit.
To start off, “tee” doesn’t necessarily mean a plain Hanes Her Way 3-pack white tee shirt. I try to buy tees with little interesting details or a unique fit. The shirt below from H&M; has small perforated details, cuffed sleeves, a slouchy fit, and is just $12.95.
My second outfit is the classic and easy-peasy blazer over jeans look, perfect for “casual Fridays” at work. Instead of a necklace, an oversized silky scarf is an appropriate accessory. I fell in love with this scarf after seeing it on the lovely Cee of To Brighten my Day. Thank you Cee for sharing the seller info!
Accessorizing is my weakness, but I’ve been sticking to my goal of at least one mandatory accessory a day, be it a belt, necklace, scarf, or brooch. Slowly and surely, I hope it will become second nature.
