Basic items – such as the white shirt and skinny jeans – are the building blocks of fashion. Truly versatile, you can dress them up, or dress them down. Break away from the casual look by employing any of these hot ways to style your favorite white shirt and skinny jeans.
Take the Trench
In awfully cold weathers, such as the preceding fall and the current winter, it’s not that enough that you hit the streets in just these two pieces. Upgrade your look – and stay on the warm side of things – with a trench coat. For a sleek style, wear it with heels – such as the style below.
Plaid is Punk
Get the punk chic look – without going all too dark – by adding a plaid button-down polo. Complete your transformation by wearing a black Doc Martens – or some black buckled boots.
Rock it Out
If you are headed out for a concert – or if you just like to look rock chic – then make sure to throw a black leather/moto jacket over your top-and-jeans attire. While sneakers or boots are obvious footwear choices, a strappy shoe – such as the one below – can soften and glam up your look.
Go Business Casual
Want to look sophisticated, without looking like you’re headed for a job interview? Then what you need to do is throw a structured blazer on. This looks so good, you might actually consider it for casual Fridays at work.
Be Boho Chic
Even with just your plain tee and jeans, you can get the most-coveted boho chic look. Get the style first and foremost by putting your scarf on. Add your aviator shades, western-style boots and fringed bag and you are good to go.
Seek Inspiration from Men
A white top and skinny jeans are vital pieces by themselves, but you can make them look trendier by incorporating menswear pieces, such as oxford shoes.
Another good example is an oversized/boyfriend’s blazer, which is a good alternative choicefor a menswear-inspired business casual look.
A white top and a good pair of skinny jeans will definitely make you look good. But if you do want to look better, try any of these easy styling tricks.
