I was recently asked to speak to a local mom’s group about how to dress up a t-shirt and jeans. A t-shirt and jeans is typically one of the main go-to outfits for us busy moms! That doesn’t have to mean you’re not fashionable, though! Here are three easy tips for how to style a t-shirt and jeans!
Tip One: Perfect A Half Tuck!
One super easy and on-trend way to dress up your tee-and-jeans look is to do a simple half tuck. It took me a while to get this one down, but once I did, it’s crazy easy! I grasp the bottom hem of my tee, with my thumbs on the outside, about an inch to the inside of my hip bones. Raise the tee up and use your thumbs to push it down into your jeans as far as you can go, only using your thumbs. Then, carefully pull it back out just a bit until it looks good!
Tip Two: Tie A Side Knot!
Another easy trick I use to dress up a tee is to do a side knot. You’ll need your tee to be a bit over-sized for this one, but with the long/over-sized trend over the last year or two…my bet is that you have something you can use. 🙂 Simply take one side of your t-shirt and pull it diagonally in front of you. Lightly twist until you have a few inches of shirt to work with, then tie it into a knot! So easy!
Tip Three: Layer It Up!
My last tip for you on how to style a t-shirt and jeans is to layer your look! This works especially well during the spring/fall months when the weather is a bit iffy or when the temperature swings widely throughout the day. Great layering pieces include a chambray button-down, a plaid shirt, or a cardigan. If you’re looking to dress up your look, try out a blazer!
Hopefully these three simple tips will help you up your t-shirt and jeans game a bit! I know they have mine! Have you already tried any of these tricks? Are you planning to now? Let me know below!
