Do you have an old white t-shirt knocking about in your wardrobe?
I know I do!
Prepare to see your old white t-shirt in a brand-new stylish light! Let me show you how…
Red lipstick is only for special occasions and evenings out, right? Wrong! Prepare to make red your new daytime lip of choice!
By pairing it with something casual like a white t-shirt plays down the bold, more ‘dressy’ appearance.
Equally the red lip dresses up the look of the t-shirt, injecting colour and making both much more wearable and quite the stylish, power-duo.
My go-to for a fool-proof red lip is this Du-Wop private lipstick in Cherry Red – with a special formula that adapts to your skin tone for the perfect shade of red for your complexion…
… you can’t go wrong!
Jewellery is a great way to dress up a plain white t-shirt!
Indulge in your favourite jewellery and accessories, without the fear of looking too ‘dressy’, as the white t-shirt continues to provide that casual feel.
Try adding statement costume jewellery, like a bold pair of earrings or a chunky necklace to accent your plain white tee.
The juxtaposition of wearing something dressy with something casual is an easy and fun way to refresh and mix-up your look.
Go into your wardrobe and play around with pairing something smart with something casual. You’ll be amazed at the amount of chic, new outfits you can put together by adding a plain white tee.
This is also a great way to get more wear out of some of the dressier items in your wardrobe that you may have been neglecting.
It’s not just accessories that can be paired with a white t-shirt – how about digging out some of your smarter trousers and teaming them with a white t-shirt for a more casual, relaxed vibe?
Smarter trousers aren’t only for evening wear and formal occasions, did you know the ‘half-tuck’ trick can transform them into a stylish day-wear option too!
If you haven’t heard of the ‘half-tuck’ then I urge you to try it!
Simply tuck in the front of your t-shirt, giving the front a ‘ruched’ effect and ta-da!
You now look like you’ve effortlessly thrown together a chic outfit before dashing out of the house!
If it’s black trousers that you want to dress down, another great tip is to pair them with brown shoes or a bag.
‘Earthy’ tones immediately make black appear more casual and are a great way to complete your smart-casual look, effortlessly tying everything together.
I hope I’ve inspired some excitement to dig out that white t-shirt and start experimenting!
