There isn’t a clothing combination more classic than jeans & a tee, and I’m definitely a denim kind of girl. It does’t take much thought or effort because your favorite jeans just go with everything.
I was so excited to slip these shoes on as soon as I got them, and I thought they would be perfect for elevating my casual jeans & a tee ensemble. It took many tries (and a trek across town) to track these down in my size but it was well worth the effort. Nothing screams spring like stripes!
Since the weather has been hit or miss, I topped it off with a long but lightweight coat. I’ve never owned a long coat before this one, but I love the way it moves with the dramatic back vent. The clasp closures in front are also a unique detail.
Other ideas for jazzing up the classic jeans & tee combo? There are so many! A printed scarf. Some dangly earrings or piles of bracelets. A leather jacket. A crisp blouse. A bright handbag. A bold coat. A classic blazer. Some killer boots. Or perhaps some sexy stilettos. You can’t go wrong!
