Footwear For The Jeans & T-Shirt Combo

posted on: Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Far from boring, the jeans and t-shirt combo gets a lift.

HOW TO ELEVATE YOUR JEANS + TEE COMBO

Is there an easier (or cooler) way to slay your jeans game than with jeans that have done all the work for you?

If you had braved a snoop through my room a few years ago, you would not have found a single pair of jeans in-between all the jeggings and candy wrappers. Instead, you would have found, well.. jeggings and candy wrappers. Maybe a box of Nerds or some lone Zombie chews that thought they had escaped my snacking, but no jeans.

 

Now though, I have a steadily growing collection of jeans and the jeans and tee combo somehow became one of my favourite outfits, along side the matching pyjamas and tracksuit and coffee spill combo.

 

As long as there are no coffee spills, you know it’s going to look good, feel comfortable and be easy to dress up or down. But since jeans are already inherently basic, it’s always more fun to dress them up and one of the easiest ways to do that is with a statement pair. Sequins, stars, chainmail, you can pretty much a pair of jeans with anything stuck to them now.

DENIM APPRECIATION

For a basic jeans and tee outfit, you need a decent pair of jeans. For a great jeans and tee combo, you need an amazing pair of jeans and a damn cool shirt.

 

Lucky, neither of these are hard to come by these days. While jeans shopping isn’t the most fun thing in the world (not to anyone I know, anyway), we’re lucky to have a huge range available these days. My favourite pair, ironically being the mom jeans.

 

But if you’re not a mom or that’s not your style, there are about 24 other types of denim leg covers to choose from. The sky is your limit. Or if we’re being technical here, your bank account is.

MAKE SURE YOU’RE COVERED (WITH A COOL TEE)

Also a few years ago, I would have thought tees were way too basic for me. Now, as it turns out, they’re a basic in my wardrobe. And they’re not really basic at all. The choices are even wider than jeans. You can get any kind of print you want on a tee and if you really can’t find it (how hard did you really look, because I found t-shirts with things like lemons and poo on them) you can design it yourself.

SOLE PURPOSE

Probably the most fun way to elevate a pair of jeans though? With shoes. Or more precisely, shoe shopping.

 

There was once a time where I wouldn’t leave the house without a pair of sky high heels, but these days you can opt for a fancy pair of flats to take your jeans and tee combo to the next level. No need for breaking your back trying to balance in stilettos, there are flats in enough styles for every occasion. This season’s (and possibly the last five) favourites? The Gucci flats of course. How can you not look put together in a pair of designer thongs?

 

But even if that’s not really your style, there are those loafers that every one who has Internet access is sporting and a whole world wide web full of stylish flats. Which ones do you prefer?

GOLD (OR ANY METALLICS REALLY) ARE A QUICK WAY TO ADD SOME LUXURY AND SOPHISTICATION TO A BASIC OUTFIT. I MEAN, IF GOLD STARS ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR GUCCI THONGS…

Don’t forget the accessories. Some things just make you look more put together than others. I usually dress like I just rolled out of bed (who knows, maybe I did) but on those days I don’t want to look scruffy, I prefer a structured  or embellished bag and some gold jewellery. Statement necklaces also work a treat if you’re going for that OTT luxe look.

 

Current favourite way to add some class to a look? Delicate gold necklaces of different length layered over the basic jeans and t-shirt outfit. A look that will last you throughout the seasons.
