Do you struggle to put together outfits in the morning? Do you browse Pinterest for outfit inspiration for hours, but ultimately keep wearing the same three shirts over and over again. Do you find yourself lying in a giant pile of clothes flailing about like a beached whale?
I figured what better way to start this article than with the combination everybody already owns jeans and a t-shirt. This is my go-to when. I feel like. I have nothing to wear. But here are some ways to make it look less like I’ve rolled out of bed and more like. I rolled out of a fashion magazine.
I feel like a proper fancy adult lady
First I’m tucking my t-shirt in all the way around to add some shape and then rushing it out so it looks a bit more relaxed. I’m also rolling out the hem of my jeans to reveal some of that sexy ankle action. So since this outfit is so plain I’m going ham with accessories. With these bling terrific earrings and a red lip which. I honestly never bother to wear. But whatever. I do like damn. I have to do this more because. I feel like a proper fancy adult lady.
I added some shoes with a pearl detail to match the pearls on my earrings. But any kind of funky shoes would work for this outfit and there you have it. And not so basic jeans and a t-shirt you can never go wrong with a graphic tee and so converse. But if you’ve worn that outfit to death like. I sure as hell have try switching out the jeans for a black wash and adding some matching black accessories for a more styled city chic look.
I’ve seen a ton of 15 year-olds on Instagram who are cooler that I’ll never be layering a turtleneck under a graphic t-shirt but honestly. I have no idea how to do that without looking like a target employee during the holidays. So my go-to is to layer them under summery dresses instead pairing a black turtleneck with black shoes is a really easy way to look color-coordinated without trying too hard.
Showing the straps layering a turtleneck
If your dress has one of those wide or plunging necklines, that will look super cute. But then takes a team of engineering students to figure out what type of raw would work underneath without showing the straps layering a turtleneck is a great option, because it allows you to wear whatever regular comfy t-shirt bra you want and still have that super cute neckline.
If you want to get a little funky, you can mix a striped turtleneck with a printed dress.. I honestly thought this outfit might make me look like a five-year-old, but. I look like a damn good five-year-old. It turned out to be one of my favorites in this entire article.
If it’s still freezing where you live, try layering a turtleneck under a crewneck sweater. I think it looks adorable as some warmth and prevents your kidneys from freezing off when you raise your arms or if your school has a strict dress code and you want to wear a crop top, this is a great way to keep the boys focused on their schoolwork, because God knows they couldn’t do it with a midriff robe out-and-about.
Have you tried wearing your dress as a shirt?
My next tip is to make the most of your dresses – yes you may have worn every single shirt in your closet twice this week – but have you tried wearing your dress as a shirt? I bet you have not you guys always ask how. When you’re smoothing it out really get down there caress the butt, if it looks acceptable to do in public. You are not doing it right honey. Add some sneakers and wham bam.
You got yourself a casual outfit with a brand new shirt. If you don’t feel like retouching your dress every time you pee or you just don’t like the feeling of three layers of fabric around your crotch here is another option:
Turn your wrap dress into a peplum top by folding the skirt portion underneath the waist line. I ended up tucking the fabric into my bra to secure it but you can also use a waist belt or safety pants for extra hold and there you go a brand new peplum top of course you can wear your dress as a skirt – which.
I honestly prefer because it’s a bit less finicky than this whole top situation try layering a t-shirt over a thin tank dress and tying it in the front with an elastic to create a little crop top or layer your underneath to let the dress t-shirt stand out I’m not really sure what point I’m trying to illustrate with this outfit. I kind of got carried away at this point.
Pop on a thick sweater to hide all those lumps and bumps
I think it’s a really cute option if your dress has some bulkier detail around the top like this one. Pop on a thick sweater to hide all those lumps and bumps. I’m getting real creative in this article guys grab a belt that fits around your waistline, put it over the sweater and then shimmy the sweater upwards until it hides the belt. So it just looks like the cropped sweater.
If your dress is a plunging neckline try layering a collared shirt underneath for a bit of a cute and conservative look and finally if those weren’t enough options for you, you can even wear your wrap dress as outerwear. Just leave it completely undone for a kind of shawl. Slash corded in situation next on the agenda layering socks under heels and sneakers. Some people think this looks hideous, some people think it looks cute clearly. I fall into the latter category. I got these crew socks for like $ 2 on Amazon and they are the perfect affordable way to spice up your outfits.
Make summer sandals look more winter appropriate add an extra pop of color or just make yourself look like a Blue’s Clues character. They even work with casual jeans and sneakers just make sure to cuff your jeans to show off your socks in proper 90s fashion. If you’re really running low on clothes to wear, try stealing oversized pieces from your boyfriend brother or the next tinder hook-up who calls you exotic.
Adding some black accessories to tie everything together
I tied this short sleeve button up around my waist to turn it into a crop top layer a turtleneck underneath and now. I look Freddie to tell you that it’s not just a phase mom you can find an oversize buttoned up like this in pretty much any thrift store to make it look less risky business and more of an outfit I’m cinching in the waist with a statement belt, and adding some black accessories to tie everything together to Aaron as a blouse. Without looking too corporate, I’m unbuttoning the shirt and pushing it back on my shoulders to create this wide almost off-the-shoulder neck line and cuffing the sleeves now admittedly.
I kind of look like a schoolteacher but at least. I look like the cool schoolteacher that you have a crush on to style an oversized men’s jacket Koff the sleeves and wear it slightly off the shoulder. This works particularly well with a soft less structured fabric. So it drapes off your body rather than looking like too chunky and weird around the shoulders. If you don’t have any boys in your life to steal from, try repurposing your grandma’s silk scarf, or more accurately, one from a stranger’s grandma that I got from a goodwill outlet. I’m wearing dead people clothing aren’t I.
Anyways, to turn this into a top wrap, it around your boobs twist it in the back and secure a knot in the front. This is surprisingly secure. I honestly could do some good bouncing in this top, but I’m not gonna give that one to our resident. But if you need to you can tuck the edges of the scarf into your strapless bra. For some added security, swapping out the sandal for boots. Here’s a warmer version that doesn’t let the top shine as much but it’s still a good option for those days when all your t-shirts are dirty. But you still have three pairs of underwear left.
Monochrome looks are easier to pull together
So you refuse to do the laundry out of pride not speaking from personal experience or anything. I know what you’re thinking Ashley I’m not a Power Ranger how am. I supposed to casually have a suit of entirely one color. I will say monochrome looks are easier to pull together than you might expect and instantly make you look like you put an honestly intimidating amount of effort into your outfits.
Obviously, the easiest way is to go for an all white or all black outfit. But even if you are putting together a colorful outfit, really the shades don’t have to match exactly like here. I have three very different shades of tan, but it still overall reads as monochrome and honest.
I think it’s a bit better if the shades are different so it adds some dimension to your outfit here are some other tips for putting together in monochrome outfits try mixing up the textures like here. I have both leather and denim add some accessories to add detail and don’t be afraid to add a little pop of a contrasting color like the text on this t-shirt on the opposite end of the spectrum there has never been a better time to get wild with some pattern mixing does this look cool or do. I look like I’m a Christmas elf addicted to Hot Topic.
Try mixing a light and dark wash to break up the look alternatively
I don’t know but there’s bound to be some niche on Instagram who’s into that personally though. I do think it works especially because the black in the leopard print and the floral print and the black of my jeans and shoes ties the whole outfit together. I think that’s the key with pattern mixing you really want to have at least one common color between all of your prints denim-on-denim used to make me want to tear my eyeballs out but somewhere in the past year. I have given into the dark wash side but if you don’t want an outfit that screams Canadian tuxedo and try mixing a light and dark wash to break up the look alternatively here is an outfit with similar washes but.
I think it works because the Sherpa lining on my jacket and my exposed leg Errol knees prevent me from looking too stuffy in all that denim. I really didn’t know what to call this section but basically here are some interesting outfit combinations to try most people reserved by high boots for short skirts and if you’re ariana grande oversized hoodies but you can make them look a lot less dangerous woman with a miniskirt since you can’t see the end of the boots.
I think it looks quite cheap and ladylike this combination has been my go-to lately which is juxtaposing a girly min. I dress with chunky platform shoes or boots with some type of hardware on them. I know. I just think it looks really cool and casual and it’s such a foolproof combination next up you could try a menswear inspired look with an oversized blazer a turtleneck and some loafers sometimes. I feel like it’s intimidating to put that many menswear inspired pieces together but as long as you have well fitting jeans and an exposed ankle you won’t get too lost in fabric and.
Make sure to wear shoes with a little bit of height
I think it looks very Oxford chic and finally try layering a chunky sweater over a skirt and leaving it untucked for a drop-waist silhouette. I chronically tuck in my shirts and sweaters so this look is kind of new for me but. I think it’s quite cute and let me tell you it is fantastic for hiding a food baby – just make sure to wear shoes with a little bit of height to balance out the chunkier silhouette you guys know. I am no stranger to showing off some scandalous shoulders and ambiguous upper thigh / ass territory but some dresses are a little bit too sexual even for me so here’s how you turn a nighttime lingerie look into a daytime outfit first I’m layering a t-shirt underneath to cover up the old Barbaro knees and creating a cute layered look and then I’m tucking my dress into some loose military-inspired pants for a masculine meets feminine look for this next look I’m layering an oversized blazer on top to balance out how short and tight the skirt is popping onto flat loafers.
I really didn’t want anything with a heel because. I already have so much leg out and well now. I have a sexy Hermione Halloween costume. I have also been loving at the corset / bodice trend lately. I layered a turtleneck under the sheer bodysuit for some extra coverage and paired it with a checkered skirt for some subtle pattern mixing and here is an edgier option with that same bodice. I know. I just love the layered look and.
I think corsets are a great way to add a pop of color and texture to an otherwise pretty plain outfit. I don’t know if this is like too simple to put in this article but another tip is to play around with the necklines on tops that you already have so if you have a wide neck top like this try moving the sleeves off the shoulder for a more feminine dig deep off the shoulder look and if you live through 2016 you probably have a top that looks something like this if you’ve worn the off the shoulder look to death you can chew me up the sleeve nubbins to create this kind of scoop neck t-shirt with an exposed back and this is the final tip of this article thank God because.
If you have a plain dress that you’ve worn the heck out of try changing it up with some statement belts or scarves this is like a random can you impeached fabric that came with a shirt that. I drifted or you could even use a scrap of fabric from a craft store for this.
I’m just tying it around my waist as one does here is a little no sew hack for you guys if your dress is a bit long tuck in some of the extra fabric around your waist and if your sash is large enough it should hide any wrinkles quite well and there we go now my basic dress is picnic [ __ ] approved here’s another option with that dead grandma scarf from earlier I’m leaving it quite thick to create a kind of pseudo corset look and pairing it with these suede boots and now I’m ready to uh woo some boys at the county fair you guys have seen this belt before but it’s literally the best 15 dollars I’ve ever spent it completely changes up a dress and.
I love the juxtaposition between this beachy white dress and some black hardware and those are all fifty outfits this is my first article that I’m filming in my new apartment and goddamn I’m so excited to have enough space to fill these outfit articles without like rearranging my whole bedroom so look forward to many more fashion articles to come otherwise thank you so much for watching and. I will see you guys next week h. I hey guys it’s Ashley here to talk my voice on camera
