I’m going to try something new today: an outfit post. Fashion is a huge part of my life and one of the main ways I choose to express myself, so I think it definitely has a home here on twenty-something. Let me know what you think!
Like most of my fellow twenty-somethings, I’m a girl on a budget. As much as I’d love to buy something new everyday, I simply can’t afford it. I have to find multiple ways to wear each piece in my wardrobe to get the most out of what I’ve got. So when thinking of an idea for what to feature for my first outfit post, I thought what better than the simple white tee? Following these tips below, maybe you can finally wear that favorite tee of yours everyday of the week (you’re welcome).
PS- thank you John for being late to work because you took all these photos for me. 🙂
Shirt: American Eagle (on sale for $12), Dress: Nasty Gal (find it here), Necklace: American Eagle (similar), Belt: F21
I got my inspiration for this one here. When I first saw it I’ll admit I wasn’t crazy about the idea of wearing a shirt over a dress. I decided to give it a go and realized it not only increases the wearability of my white tee, but also the wearability of my favorite mint dress. Knotting your white tee over a dress with a skinny belt will transform it into a skirt. Shazam: new way to wear your dress, too!
Shirt: American Eagle, Blazer: Thrift store, Jeans: American Eagle, Shoes: Nine West Outlet (similar), Necklace: F21 (similar)
Try this one for running errands on the weekend, or a lunch date. You can dress it down by removing the blazer, and the pop of color (I used orange) gives the outfit a little something extra.
For a look that’s on trend and dressy enough for girls night out, pair your white tee with colored denim, your favorite pumps and a statement necklace. This look is super easy to recreate and it’s also fun to try color blocking here with colored pumps and jeans.
