One of the easiest things to wear in the summer (or any season, for that matter) is the t-shirt. The t-shirt is now more than just a basic to wear on a lazy day but has become a fashion staple, with shirts like those in the T by Alexander Wang collection becoming iconic must-have pieces for everyone’s wardrobe. Instead of partnering your next t-shirt with an old pair of jeans, here are three ways that I like to style the fashion t-shirt:
The Classy Nerd T-Shirt Look
The Nerd t-shirt has been popularized by TOPSHOP’s line of Nerd/Geek/Dweeb tops. To integrate this kind of t-shirt into a classy outfit while still keeping a touch of ‘nerdiness,’ tuck a shirt like the Just Wear Clothes Nerd Alert T-Shirt into an Ann Demeulemeester High-Waisted Trouser. For footwear, Vince Alexa Ankle Strap Sandals are versatile enough for a work day and chic enough for a leisure day. Keep accessories classic and simple with the Burberry Chronograph Check Strap Watch, 42mm and Stella McCartney Oversized Square Glasses. Finish off your look with a simple but functional bag such as the MICHAEL Michael Kors Large Selma Top-Zip Satchel.
The Cool Animal T-Shirt Look
Animal t-shirts have been a big trend this summer, with some of the most recognizable ones being from Kenzo. You can wear the animal t-shirt very casually by pairing one like the Just Wear Clothes Angry Monkey T-Shirt with denim cutoffs like my personal favorite, Rag & Bone JEAN Mila Distressed Denim Shorts (they’re also featured in my Geek Chic: Comic Con post). With the Ash Bea Wedge Sneaker Black Multi Suede and the Herschel Supply The Heritage Mid Volume Backpack in Teal this look becomes the epitome of cool casual. You can choose to accessorize with a Fossil Silver-Tone Teal Bangle or two, Marc by Marc Jacobs Logo Disc Stud Earrings, and Ray-Ban Clubmaster Half-Frame Acetate Sunglasses.
The Cute Celebrity T-Shirt Look
Celebrity names and faces have been on fan t-shirts forever, but recently celebrity models like Cara Delevingne have been frequently sporting them too. For a cute and candy colored look worthy of a celebutante, wear the Just Wear Clothes Liberté, Egalité, Beyoncé T-Shirt with a TOPSHOP Pink High Waist Lace Skater Skirt. Glam up your look with a J.Crew Technicolor Flower Necklace and Liz Claiborne Multicolor Chandelier Earrings. Slip into Jeffrey Campbell Principal Dancer Flats and throw on a Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Karlie Textured-Leather Mini Shoulder Bag and you’ve turned a parody t-shirt into an adorable look perfect for the end of the summer holidays.
You can find the t-shirts featured above and more in my store, Just Wear Clothes.
