I hear it all the time – “My basic wardrobe is jeans and tee shirts. How can I look a little more ‘styled’ but still be comfortable?”
You don’t have to give up comfort to look a little more put together, or “styled.” Start with simple black or navy pants (not leggings) in a stretch fabric that is cool and “breathable.” Add a simple tee shirt in any color from your Color Portfolio, in a loose fit that doesn’t bind or require a tuck-in. Add a denim jacket or a cotton velveteen blazer and you’ve gone from Plain Jane to Stylish Sue!
- Add a long vest (mid-thigh length will cover all sorts of problem areas) in a lightweight, draping fabric.
- You can’t beat a white button front shirt for an easy upgrade and there are many choices in great no-iron fabrics. Pair it with pants or jeans and add the denim jacket, blazer or vest.
- Animal prints are always in style and a top that looks and fits like a tee shirt, but in an animal print, will jazz up any outfit.
- Adding a scarf instantly makes any outfit look more styled. Don’t worry, there are plenty of scarves out there in lightweight fabrics that don’t cling and allow you to wear them with comfort.
Either of these blazers can add an instant upgrade to any wardrobe.
