Rarely has a T-shirt-and-jeans combination not remedied a wardrobe rut. Exhausted of your trend-forward pieces for the season? Tee and jeans. Not feeling amazing about your body this week? Good old T-shirt and denim. In other words, the glorious pairing that is a T-shirt and jeans is akin to the insurance policy of the style world. It's always there for you, it always looks good, and it's always easy to put together.
However, due to the fact that we do in fact enjoy fashion and strive to push ourselves to experiment more with our closets, we're not settling for only a T-shirt and jeans anymore. Nay, we're ready to take things up a notch. Rather than reaching for solely these two items, let us all consider tossing a third item into the ring. Though it's just an extra piece, it can make a world of difference.
For example, a striped tee–and–blue jeans duo is suddenly très chic with the swift addition of a silk kerchief knotted around the neck or through the belt loops. A Western-inspired belt styled with a white tee and blue jeans? We're talking major model-off-duty vibes. In other words, small tweaks make big differences.
