If you're anything like this writer, a T-shirt–and-jeans combo is one of your favorite throw-and-go looks. As in, you can put it on and walk out the door without thinking and still feel somewhat put together. Well, what about when you want to step things up a bit? Well, thanks to Lucy Hale, we just found a great new trick to do it. The actress stepped out this week in a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans with the perfect detail. First off, we love the perfectly balanced amount of distressing paired with her vintage-style tee, but it's really the dark patches that take the look to a whole new level. We all know novelty and statement denim has been huge lately, so to find a style like this that's a little more subtle but still keeps things exciting is music to our ears. Style it like Hale did with said vintage tee, colorful sunnies, a crossbody bag, and classic black ankle boots, and easily transform the look for a night out by opting for a moto jacket and heels instead. Either way you style it, jeans like this are going to ensure you get some compliments along the way.
