Recently, I have learned that it is impossible to dress for weather in Philadelphia. One day it will be 70 degrees and sunny, and two days later we are knee deep in snow. So this year, instead of buying clothes based on season, I have been shopping more based on style and the versatility of certain pieces.

I never thought that I had a set style, but there are a few staples that have been carried along with me over the years. These include distressed denim jeans, solid colored shoes, and a pair of sunglasses.

I don’t know if you all have heard… but graphic T-shirts are in!!! The last few weeks I have purchased about 12 new graphic T-shirts and cut and shaped them into styles that can be worn everywhere. I even bought some band T-shirts of groups that I’ve never listened to… yes, I’m that person and yes, they look adorable. I don’t like to think I have a set “style” that defines me, but trends, such as this one, tend to consume my wardrobe for months at a time.

For this look, I picked out a simple pair of light-washed, distressed jeans and paired them with solid white canvas shoes. On top, I chose one of my new graphic band T-shirts and complemented it with a mustard colored hooded jacket. Rain or shine, I will always have a pair of sunglasses with me. With this outfit I chose one of my favorites, my round metal-based copper colored sunglasses.

Simple T-shirts are perfect for any event. You can cut them into a crop top and wear them to a party, or pair them with a pair of jeans for a quick brunch date. You can even dress them up with a cute blazer and heels for a day out in the city. This trend has come in and out of style over the years, but it’s one that you can always rely on for the perfect look.
