STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back to Basics

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back to Basics

When it comes to the topic of wardrobe staples, many people have differing views of what should and should not be included. However you’d be hard pressed to find anyone, especially a college student, who does not count jeans and the perfect T-shirt as two of their go-to pieces. Jean and T-shirt pairings can be spotted on everyone from models to celebrities to fashion it-girls, who help solidify the two pieces as fashion classics.

The beauty of the T-shirt and jeans combo is that when worn on their own they create an instantly classic outfit, and when layered under other pieces they are the perfect neutrals to highlight other trends. While many may think of a basic white V-neck and a pair of blue denim, there are many different variations of jeans and a T-shirt that give a fresh update to the classic look.

This Fashionista rocks a pair of white denim with a light pink T-shirt that features an asymmetric hem to create a summer ensemble that is perfect for dressing up or down. This Fashionista goes the dressier route and adds a long necklace, brown leather booties and classic aviators to her look. With her hair styled in a sleek topknot, she could wear this outfit for many occasions, such as an internship or a dinner out. However, this look could also be worn to class when styled with a pair of espadrilles and a simple gold necklace.
