Who woulda thought so many fashion victims would be confused with the thought of wearing a plain white t-shirt to work or any place outside of a casual setting?
Okay, I get it… you love reading SHUTUPANDWEARIT.com because it gives you the fashion 411 you need to go from drab to fab, but come on! Of all the pop quizzes you’ve had in your life this should be the ace in the hole.
Dressing up your tee is actually easier than you think… it starts with the quality! Consider a cotton/silk blend for a more stylish look.
Then think of your tee shirt no different from what you’ve been wearing under your blazer or cardigan. It’s the base of your look and everything you layer it with should be considered an accessory.
But wearer beware, your tee should be bright white, shouldn’t look lived or SLEPT in and the fabric should be superior to what you wear to clean the house.
That said, the chicest way to dress one up is by adding a statement necklace. This bold accessory instantly steps up your look and creates a focal point that draws the eye away from the casual top and tricks the mind to thinking your tee is dressy.
But wait, it doesn’t stop there… add a blazer or cardigan if you’re wearing it to work. And for an after six look, zhoozh up those sleeves, re-app your lip gloss, toss that hair and you’re ready for cocktails with the girls.
And guys, the apple isn’t falling far from the tree here. It’s time you stepped up your game to. Look for tees with interesting details, quality fabric and be sure it fits well. There is nothing less sexy than a boxy tee on a fit guy.
That my frustrated fashion victims, is how you dress up your tee!
Now SHUT UP AND WEAR IT!
