I often look at my closet, overflowing with clothes, and think: "I have nothing to wear." But a great way to combat this problem is to take a staple item and style it in different ways. Take the t-shirt, for example
T-shirts are cute, comfortable, and easy to wear. You probably have a ton of them; I sure do! T-shirts are super versatile...so lets take a shirt out of your t-shirt hoarding pile and style it different ways. I grabbed this black "coke" shirt from Forever 21. Here are a bunch of different ways to wear it.
Look 1: Out & About
Look 2: Classy but Sassy
Take the same black shirt and pair it with a fitted skirt with a cute ruffle, and a pair of suede flat and all of a sudden you've taken a casual look up a notch. Depending on your job, you could wear this to work, and it would be great for going out to dinner at the end of the day.
Again I kept my makeup and hair pretty natural with this outfit. A pale pink lip makes sense when you are wearing shoes that are in the same tones.
Look 3: Night Out
Finally, a fun hairstyle for this look is a half up top-knot. The key to this look is that the knot isn't too perfect-- messy is good here, and be sure to wave the bottom part that's left down.
Don't be afraid to style your t-shirt in tons of different ways. Fashion is all about trying new things and exploring. Go find your unique style!
