Styling A Tee

Outfit 1: Old Navy Tee, True Religion Jeans, Old Navy Scarf, Banana Republic Heels, Urban Outfitters Belt (old, similar here), Gucci Sunglasses, Clare Vivier Clutch, Page Sargisson Ring c/o

Outfit 2: Old Navy Tee, Anthropologie Dress (old, similar shape here), Banana Republic Heels, Clare Vivier Clutch

A great tee is always a wardrobe staple. I’m constantly reaching for the same two or three and realized that I needed to add a few more to change things up. They can make even the most “dressy” outfits look relaxed and effortless, which I love. I paired a classic white long sleeved t-shirt with white skinny jeans and broke it up with a floral scarf and stripe clutch. I love the simplicity of this outfit, but you could easily wear it to so many different occasions- brunch, work (in a casual environment), dinner, etc. Aside from the timeless white, a striped tee is by far my favorite. I own about five (in various stripe sizes) and still feel the need for more. One of my favorite ways of wearing a tee is by pairing it over a dress and recreating it into a shirt/skirt combo. I wore this dress for our engagement photos and love how adding the t-shirt makes it much more daytime appropriate.

What ways do you guys like to wear your tees?

My t-shirt collection just keeps growing because I’m a firm believer that one can never have enough tees in her closet! Old Navy is a great place to stock up. :)

Those are both good looks. :)

I like styling t-shirts with either jeans or a skirt.

I think a variety of good tees are such a closet staple.

Ohhh, I sooo sorry for your beautyful hair. I think that style was much better!

I LOVE Old Navy! I own more of their stuff than I should, haha. Today I wore their Rockstar skinnies. I’m totally going to try the t-shirt over the dress thing.

Love how you styled these tees, and love the clutch too! :)

I love both outfits, but the first one is something I would wear all the time! I’m always pairing my tees with jeans and a scarf!

Love these easy steps to go from simple to dressy without any effort!

I love your all white outfit with a pop of color! I really need to go through my wardrobe and create my own all white outfit since right now I’m kinda obsessed with them. Your scarf is super cute as well!

I am in love with the first outfit! I love the simplicity of it and I would so wear something like that! People underestimate the power of a simply outfit! Such a great job styling it Julia! You look GORGEOUS AS ALWAYS!!!

LOVE these shoes. I am looking for a similar pair and can’t find them anywhere. Any suggestions??

Thanks! xox Dani

Your all white outfit with a hint of blue in your scarf is such a refreshing, crisp look. I like how you re-styled your dress into a skirt too, that’s one of my favourite ways to re-wear a piece and make it new. Have a great weekend, Julia!

Love the first look! I live in my tees, it’s definitely a must have


Jessica l Food Wine Fashion May 2, 2013 at 2:58 am

That scarf offers such a bright, pop of color….love it.

xxoo – jessica
