Here’s my definitive answer to the eternal question:
What do I wear today?
Slightly oversized, with a softness that you just want to wrap yourself in, this wardrobe staple has become quite the “must-have” this season. Whether you raid a significant other’s closet, or acquire a striped boyfriend shirt of your very own, you’ll be hard pressed to find an easier or more versatile piece to add to your wardrobe.
Here are just 4 of my favorite ways to style this piece —
1. With Crisp White Jeans + Pastels
If you’ve ever wondered how to transition some of your cold weather favorites, look no further than a pair of skinny white jeans. Ditch the visually heavy blacks and browns for lightened up pastel accessories for a casual, summer Friday ready look.
2. With a Suede A-Line Skirt
A client recently inquired if suede was an ok textile for summer styling. My answer was an enthusiastic, “YAAAAAaaaassss!” Suede is pretty much a year-round style option, especially in a rich neutral as in the image above. Go daring and wear the hemline short (I LOVE this SUEDE A-LINE option!) on the weekends, or select a knee or midi-length option (THIS or THIS!) for a more appropriate office ready look.
3. With Broken In Denim + Contrasting Scarf
Have you tried out LEVI’S 501s yet? My pair have been some of my favorites — they’re the perfect blend of retro and modern. The higher rise really emphasizes the waistline and in full disclosure, make my butt look really good! Now, throw in my go-to accessory — the BANDANA SCARF and you know I’m all over this outfit! When wearing straight leg/high rise denim, try tucking in your tops and pair with heels for the most slimming overall effect.
4. With Wide Leg Trousers
The key to pulling off this look is to keep the bottoms fitted at the waist and the perfect length — just covering your shoes. You’ll immediately feel (and look!) inches slimmer and taller. The casual boyfriend shirt will add the ideal modern touch to your 70’s inspired styling.
