Back to Basics: How to Style a T-Shirt
As your self proclaimed style guide for doing a lot with a little, I am so excited to share with you guys my ways to style a t-shirt. These are just a couple of my favorite looks for those days when you feel like you have nothing to wear.
Not every outfit needs to be over the top. Sometimes, something as simple as jeans and a t-shirt can be a full outfit. Usually, I’ll add a little half-tuck and sleeve folds to give it a little more personality. Don’t worry about being too polished, the messed up feel is what gives it character.
Taking an outfit to the next level can be as easy as building off the basics. Here, I added a plain blazer and a really fun hat. This barely took me five minutes and I have an entirely new outfit. Same shirt, jeans, and accessories, and still a brand new outfit.
Flannels are the perfect layer to add on. They have a ton of personality, are super stylish, and take your outfit in a whole new direction. They are so versatile. You can tie them up, wear them loose, button-up; the options are endless. With this, I decided to do a full tuck of my t-shirt so that you can see my body shape. I love the downtown girl vibes of this whole outfit.
Add a cardigan, add a jacket, add both. Your t-shirts do not need to be put away in the winter anymore. I love adding layers to make my t-shirts fall (or even winter) appropriate. Layering is fashionable and functional. Just remember to be conscious of your high/lows!
Corsets and other similar accessories are such a cute way to elevate your outfit. They bring so much style and personality without much effort. Again, I would probably roll up my sleeves here to give the shirt more of a muscle tee look. I love this outfit. Such an easy date night option.
I hope this video taught you guys a thing or two on why t-shirts are so important to have in your wardrobe. Stylish a t-shirt is so easy and so rewarding so make sure to pick some up the next time you go shopping!

I’m almost always too hot in the winter so layering is a must for me. T-shirts are year round for me, and I love how you’ve layered them with the longer cardigan and short jacket on top, and the flannel shirt tied at the waist to show your curves! A blazer or jean jacket is always a “go to” for me, too. I’d likely add a chunky necklace to the one with blazer for a classier look when wanted. Love your style!
