How 6 Celebrities Make a T-Shirt and Jeans Look Expensive

We live for a memorable red carpet moment or a splashy party look, but sometimes the celebrity outfits that provide the most inspiration are those that are more pared-down—the ones that offer more utility and that can be replicated in our own closets. Take, for example, a classic T-shirt and pair of jeans. The two are a timeless, effortless pairing that will never go out of style, and celebrities consistently wear this duo in a way that looks polished and effortless.

Of course, as we all know, all it takes to add some oomph to a tee and jeans is by rotating in some stylish accessories. But there are also a few other factors that come into play, like choosing the right fit for your top and jeans, the way you tuck your tee, and even other factors like color combination. Ahead, stock up on celeb-inspired tips for making your T-shirt and jeans look expensive this season, and shop our picks to mirror the aesthetic in your own wardrobe.
