DOWNPLAY AN AGGRESSIVELY SHORT MINISKIRT
When summer arrives all you want to do is wear fresh clothing. But you might be worried about showing too much skin and looking too tacky. The perfect solution is matching your miniskirt with casual clothing like graphic tees and sneakers.
DISTRESSED JEANS + GRAPHIC TEE. TO TUCK, OR NOT TO TUCK, THAT IS THE QUESTION.
When wearing a graphic tee with jeans most of the time you should tuck in your shirt. That is if you wish to accomplish a form-fitting outfit.
With wide cuts (such as slouchy jeans, baggy jeans, or even mom-fit jeans), it would be expected to tuck in the tee, or even toughen up your tee with a knot.
On the other side, if you are wearing skinny jeans, you are free to wear them as you want.
Well, nothing is written in stone. You can always try new outfits and experiment as you want.
Layering a graphic Tee underneath the blazer of a suit in an effort to make your overall look a bit more casual. Also wearing a blazer is a good way to elevate any outfit. Mix and match different pieces to dress up and dress down. The result can be unexpected but original. Here are some ideas:
ADD EDGE WITH A LEATHER JACKET
A leather jacket is such a versatile and classic item of clothing. This staple piece can't be missing for your wardrobe. When you take out your graphic tee is a great opportunity to wear your leather jacket as well.
The leather jacket is a bold statement piece, and it will look perfect with your graphic tee and some distressed shorts.
Also, do you remember the animal print outfit + graphic tee?. Add a final layer with your leather jacket, you will be set to go.
THERE’S NOTHING MORE ‘PUNK ROCK’ THAN COMBAT BOOTS.
If you are wearing a graphic tee, wearing it with combat boots is a ‘MOST-OUTFIT’. You can’t call yourself a ‘Rocker’ if you haven’t tried this style at least once. Wear them with your denim shorts and perhaps that leather jacket to add some more edge, you will feel the rock-lifestyle coming out of your pores.
ELEVATE YOUR OUTFIT WITH HIGH HEELS.
No-one said that graphic tee's were exclusive of grunge outfits. Wearing your shirt with some high heels will take your outfit from work to dinner. Casual Friday will have an entirely new meaning.
Also looking for a going-out look, this is a perfect outfit that will mix casual and chic.
