It's been bitterly cold lately and snow storms seem to be the new trend around here. This weather causes many people to suffer from the winter blues. It can be pretty dark and dreary, wardrobe included, but how can you be sad when you've got fashion?! To cheer you up and keep you pushing through to spring, I've put together five looks of the dark blues we wear all winter and added some shine, glamour and a little boldness. These five looks will show you how to brighten up your winter blues.
It's laundry day and you've got places to go and people to see. You're a glamorous girl with nothing to wear but that white tee (above) in the back of your closet. How are you supposed to be glamorous in a t-shirt? There is simply nothing glitzy about a t-shirt and most of us only wear them to the gym. Can it be worn elsewhere? Of course! Here are two instances you wouldn't think to do so and I'll show you how.
Casual Glamour - Brunch with the Ladies
Brunch in the city with the ladies in a tee? Oh no! Calm down, it's okay. Luxe to the rescue! This Majestic Filatures t-shirt is a v-neck which automatically adds a feminine appeal. I've paired it with a high-waisted mint green mini skirt to smooth out the gym shirt effect at the bottom. Leave a little breathing room at the top for a flirty effect like a blouse instead of tucking it in stick straight. This beautiful kimono tops the look off. You won't even remember you're wearing a t-shirt. The base of this piece is also a mint green and is balanced out with a bright and dark extreme, orange and black. The gold necklace, cuff and earrings add a metallic accent to the overall look. I finished it off with a gorgeous pair of burnt orange Jeffrey Campbell sandals and Michael Kors medium travel tote. Voila! That's how you can be glamorous in a t-shirt on a lovely weekend out on the town.
Social Glamour - Bridal Shower Dinner
There is no possible way anyone would dare wear a t-shirt to a bridal shower right? Not if it's all you've got. Let's work it out. I started with the same t-shirt from the prior look. I added a rich red and pale yellow print pencil skirt, also high waisted. This beautiful blazer from Mango falls just right, leaving room for a little bit of the tee to show and closes at the top of the skirt. I added a pretty YSL gold chain belt to draw attention to the smallest part of your waist and away from your t-shirt. I finished the look with a lovely pair of suede Gianvito Rossi olive green shoes, simple earrings and clutch. Incredible look don't you think?
Let Not Your Wardrobe Limit You
Now do you believe you can glamorous in a t-shirt? You can achieve these very same looks with your own pieces at home. Just think outside the box within the guidelines I've given you. 1. Tuck the t-shirt in loosely to give a blouse effect. 2. Layer with feminine pieces like the kimono in the casual look. 3. Accessorize to draw (good) attention away from the t-shirt.
