Easy Weekend Dressing

Let’s face it. Everyone needs day on the weekend where you’re in head-to-toe comfy clothes. A clean and crisp, white T-shirt is the perfect starter package for this outfit. We recommend a simple, cotton v-neck with some cute leggings and a pop of color.

The Updated Classic

The classic jeans and a T-shirt is an easy pick for any day of the week. But we think every outfit should be given special attention, so next time you go for ‘the classic’ look, opt for a little flair! A tee with some interesting detail (like this fun and flirty neckline) or these killer shoes are an awesome way to turn up the volume on an everyday favorite.

Layered Up Looks

Long-sleeves under short-sleeves are making a comeback! Play with texture, pattern and now length when you’re putting together your usual tee and something-else combo.

Stylist Tip: Bleach. Your. Whites. Don’t skimp out on laundry day when it comes to a load of whites. Adding just a little bit of bleach to your wash keeps your tees looking fresh, not dingy.

The Power Duo

Dying to wear your favorite sundress, but not looking to show as much skin? Look no further than, you guessed it, a T-shirt! This #trending look for spring and summer is a super cute way to sport your favorite mini-dress in more conservative settings. We love the sweet and playful vibes of this look.

Minus the Midriff

Think of this clever layering trick as a modern response to the good ol’ sweater vest. But instead of the usual frumpy pullover look, you can wear your favorite cropped jumper! This figure-flattering look is a fresh take on layers that mix clean, preppy lines with edgy, modern vibes.
