STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: With The Band

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: With The Band

Whether it started with your first concert (shout out to Hilary Duff’s Metamorphosis Tour circa 2003), or you’ve recently purchased some Bieber Purpose Tour swag, most of us are proud owners of our favorite band’s T-shirt. Band T-shirts can bring back memories of a teenage fashion craze, however, I find myself surrounded by lots of fashion forward individuals who are bringing this trend to their 20’s. Take it from this street-style savvy Fashionista, a band T-shirt is a trend you’ll want to follow.

This Fashionista sets a great example of how to make a T-shirt look put together and chic. Starting with the simple band T-shirt and jeans concept, she added a black maxi blazer vest that creates an effortlessly sophisticated twist. Similarly to this Fashionista, try adding more tailored pieces with your band T-shirt like a blazer or a vest to refine the look. Since the shirt says it all, this Fashionista stayed simplistic yet trendy. She created perfect harmony between vintage and contemporary by keeping it classic with the vintage jeans and adding more modern accessories like her red cross-body bag and white block heel mules. This mixture brings a more mature flare to a very youthful style. She also uses pops of color with her red and white accessories, drawing the attention back to the shirt. Although the T-shirt is the main focus of this ensemble, this Fashionista makes us want to take a step back and appreciate the way this look shows off her eye for fashion.

I love this outfit because it’s so versatile. Wear it to brunch with your friends, during a night out or even to class. Dress it down with a leather jacket and adidas Superstar’s on a casual day of exploring your city. Most of us can dig deep into our closets and pull out that band T-shirt we thought we retired for good, but I challenge you to throw together a look that will make others turn heads! Rock on!
