Hello, my friends! Let’s see a show of hands for all of you who reach for a basic tee most of the time? I’m going to take a guess that it’s almost all of us, as there is nothing more versatile and the price is right! But how often do we just throw on a pair of jeans and our outfit is complete? With the right accessories, a basic tee can be dressed up to make an outfit that can take you from a day to a night look.
The dressed up basic tee outfit
For this look, I’m styling a burgundy tee. This is a simple, inexpensive tee from Target, where you can often pick up a couple of tees for around $12! The rich color makes it perfect to dress up.
Accessories really make all the difference in dressing up an outfit. The multi-strand statement necklace and bracelets along with hoop earrings definitely take this outfit up a notch.
All the elements of the outfit are tied together by adding a colorful bag in the same shade as the tee. (You have seen this bag in lots of posts with multiple outfits, like this post and this one. That is the sign of a smart wardrobe purchase! LOL!)
By adding a sweater or jacket, you can take this very simple outfit from day to evening and still be stylish. Even with something as simple as a tee! I have several of these basic tees in many colors. It’s lots of fun putting them together with jewelry, scarves, skirts, and pants. Fashion can truly be affordable!
How many tees do you have in YOUR wardrobe? Pull out a pretty and colorful favorite and see how many cute looks you can create. I would love to share them in a future post!!
Thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this post.
Have a great day!
