As a fashion designer, a CEO of my own brand (can’t believe I am saying this!) and someone who regularly works as a freelance stylist – dressing up and looking presentable is part of my job. Though, I do not believe that you need to only wear designer brands or constantly sport the latest bags or shoes to look good. It is about knowing how to dress for your body; using clothing and accessories that complements your features and making sure what you are wearing is appropriate to the occasion. Which leads to this post’s outfit discussion – I got this simple long line t-shirt off a shopping website and it does not belong to a certain brand. But, I have received so many compliments every single time I wore them. Whether it is from my colleagues, friends and family – wearing this simple t-shirt not only made me look good but gave me the confidence whenever I needed it. It worked for me so well that I got them in two contrasting colors: black and white. I have styled them in different ways; with jeans, pants, heels, espadrilles and so on. I believe it is the cut and style of it as well as the fabric (which is a type of neoprene) that makes this t-shirt appear expensive. I wish I could show you all the ways I have styled it so far, but I have rounded it off to two main looks – one that is casual and the other that can be worn to a more formal setting (like a meeting or to work).
The first look is a casual one – I wore a pair of denim jeans with zippers at the front and white sneakers from New Look. I tied my hair with a patterned silk scarf from Zuiki Italia. Since the white t-shirt is a simple piece, you can always pair it with interesting elements to give an otherwise basic look an impressive twist.
For my second look, I styled my black t-shirt with a pair of camel pants (I rolled the hem a little to show my ankles – to give the illusion of height !), wore my leopard print kitten heels and used gold jewelry to complement the creamy brown tones in my look. This look is ideal to work or to a formal meeting.
You can definitely get more out of the tops than just these two looks! So let me know how you would style it!
