An Easy Way to Update your Jeans and T-shirt Outfit

March 28, 2017


the t-shirt trend everyone is talking about

If you’re like me, nothing beats a t-shirt and jeans combo. It’s classic, comfortable and incredibly easy when you’re running out of the house. The challenge, though, is that you sometimes want to look like you put in a little more effort than just a t-shirt and jeans look. How can you make this classic go-to a little different? I think I figured it out, you guys! An easy way to update your jeans and t-shirt outfit is finding a shirt that is comfy like a plain tee, but has a little something else going on! It needs that cool factor!

What do you all think about the cold-shoulder trend? I’m slowly coming around to it when I’m seeing options that are a little more feminine {like this floral dress I wore in my latest wellness challenge post}. This red top is made out of the softest t-shirt fabric and it could even work with a regular bra thanks to the thicker straps. Or you can go strapless. I love the color and fit, and it’s become an incredibly easy choice on a busy morning. Paired with distressed jeans, some easy mules, and no one will know it took you less than a minute to get dressed!

    I love how that cold shoulder top has a t-shirt feel to it, but still looks trendy!

    I need cold-shoulder t-shirts. I will stock up on them for summer, because I really do need to update my t-shirts.

    Great outfit. The red is a nice color on you and I love the distressed jeans and shoes. I can’t quite get comfortable with baring my shoulders but I think it looks cute on other people.

    • Hi Allegra,

  • So pretty, Mara:P

    • Hi Mollie,

      the jeans are my favorite too!! Really comfortable and just nice enough for the weather!

  • I could not agree more with this! My favorite pieces are the ones I like to call “basic plus”; they’re simple but have just a little extra something to make them feel special!

    • You will love it!! very comfortable and one of my favorites!!

  • Ahhh, just the topic I was thinking about, Mara! I’m all about easy going looks and this top is my kind of style. Comfy yet it looks like I put a little more effort into my look, but without trying. I actually like to the cold shoulder trend. I still can’t do the off-the-shoulder though. :/

    P.S. Your post about life with Augustine was so touching. He’s such a cutie pie!
