Bad Kitty

The white t-shirt & jeans. This combo may be the most beloved in all of street style history. It seems like whenever we come across an accessory, piece of outerwear, or shoe that seems too outlandish to wear outside of a Fashion Week Runway, our go-to is to always try it with a t-shirt and pair of jeans. This practical pairing seems to make anything more realistic and approachable like magic. Maybe there was some subtle eyerolls there, and it’s okay, we get it! With such an accommodating outfit as the white tee/jeans, there does run the risk of it getting monotonous. But don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! (Yikes, that phrase is intense) I just mean, before you swear off of the white tee/jeans look entirely, try adding some personal flare. It’s a great canvas, all it needs is some personal creativity! No need for couture – just a colorful neck scarf or layering piece can elevate this classic staple into something a bit more individualized.

Modern Nomad

With a summer as sweltering as ours has been, it’s not a bad idea to consider wearing crop tops!  And this locally designed and printed Marrakesh tee is a fabulous way to start.  Try it with a cool, high-waisted mini and shortie boots for a hip everyday look.  Or pull it on over a plain-Jane dress to ease yourself into the feel of it.  You’ll be baring your midriff in no time!
