Frumpy, tacky, lazy…just a few words we hear/associate with wearing tee shirts. Heck, I’ll even admit to thinking the same thing. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and a place for the classic tee (sporting events, working out, running a quick errand after letting lose on a Friday night, we’ve all been there), but, not all t-shirts are created equal.
As a full grown adult, it’s time to step it up. Long gone are the days when throwing on a XL Comfort Colors tee with your sorority letters is considered “appropriate” to wear out of the house. So how exactly do we “glow up” the t-shirt game and finally seem like we have it all together even on our not-so-great days? I have a few tips for ya.
- Tie It Up — this is the ultimate hack to polish an oversized tee. Simply pulling the extra fabric into a lose knot in the front of your shirt cinches your waist and gives you a little more shape while still being effortlessly comfy.
2. Choose Your Pants Wisely — Sure, t-shirts are meant to be worn in a comfortable fashion, but what you chose to pair with it can dramatically change the entire look. If you’re going to opt for a pair of leggings, make sure you ask yourself these two things; Are these leggings see through? & Is this shirt is long enough? No one wants to end up on a stranger’s Snapchat exposing your entire rear end on the internet. My rule of thumb is, if someone else can tell what kind or color your underwear is, you’re probably wearing the wring thing. Pick a pair of jeans instead, or throw a jean jacket around your waist. Easy fix!
3. Accessories are Your Friend — It doesn’t take much, but a few final touches can take a tee from frumpy to fab in seconds. Your favorite sunnies, pearls, and a cute pair of tennis shoes are all you need. As you grab your purse on the way out the door, you’ll catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and say “dang, you look good!”
4. Sass & a Smile — Happiest girls are the prettiest girls after all! If you feel comfortable in the skin you’re in, it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, you will come off looking your best. Who care’s if the rest of the world is dressed to the nines, you are killing it in your comfy duds and you should never question it… & if someone asks you if Pepsi is okay, it most definitely is not (sorry not sorry).
