For this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add.
My basics are my favorite pair of skinny jeans (quite literally, the only pair that have ever looked good on me) and an simple grey H&M t-shirt, that unfortunately is hiding in this photo-shoot. I wear a fitted tee under most of my outfits, especially in the colder months. Not only do they give an extra layer of warmth, but they can be a great way to cover up a scandalously low neckline, or just give a small bit of color to peek out from under other items.
I love menswear inspired looks, so I try to integrate that into my personal style when I can. I used my tried and true method of tucking in when you have a short torso to pair the striped button-down with the classic blazer, which is a very boyish look that I love. I took this one step further by adding a shrunken sweater vest that reminds me of a men’s three-piece-suit. *swoon!*
To off-set being so boyishly dressed, I needed girly items like the long necklaces and vintage brooch on the jacket lapel (more signature items of my personal style). The feminine cut of the skinny jeans and classic almond toe pumps also help “girl-up” the outfit.
I love love love these shoes! I’ve worn them endlessly ever since I picked them up almost two years ago! I highly suggest grey pumps…they are surprisingly versatile and a twist on the basic black pump.
