Gaslight Anthem’s croon about summer love in their song, “Blue Jeans and White T-shirts,” fits perfectly with this Fashionista’s chic, romantic look. Forget the LBD, and say hello to the LWT, the Little White T-shirt. In a relaxed fit U-neck paired with lightly distressed cuffed skinny or boyfriend jeans (the silhouette of the season) and a pair of killer black suede kitten heels, this look is understated yet incredibly cool.
If you’ve relegated your ratty white T-shirt to laundry day duty, think again, because this little shirt has loads (pun not intended) of potential and versatility. With dark wash zippered skinny jeans and a sleek pony, the look transforms from romantic to minimalist with an edge. Think you were meant to be born in a different decade? Channel the ‘70s with flared jeans and a white crop. For date night, a silk-blend iteration makes black jeans oh so elegant. That’s not to mention the plethora of options available once you go beyond jeans (leather shorts, anyone?).
The next step is to think about the details that add polish to the look. This Fashionista’s hair and makeup play into the relaxed-romantic vibe with curls, winged liner and a light pink lip. To make this look her own, she threw on an infinity scarf (which you can fake by knotting and tucking under the ends of a regular scarf) and a pair of classic sunglasses. For a different look, try out a silk scarf, or skip the scarf all together and wear a delicate gold necklace. Minimalist jewelry is all the rage and definitely warrants the hype it’s getting. Remember, accessories make the look, whether you choose to add one, five or 10.
