One T-Shirt, Styled Three Ways

If you’re anything like me, then you just might have a stash of graphic tees hiding somewhere in your room. They’re perfect for pairing with jeans and a hoodie for a quick run to the grocery store, or to toss on with some spandex shorts for a quick weekend jog. But what if you want to get a bit more mileage out of your favorite standby? We decided to play dress up with the ModCloth Blog’s graphic designer, Sam, to come up with some alternatives for that tried-and-true wardrobe staple, the T-Shirt. With the Orientation Week Tee in Monday as our base, we came up with three easy looks to take your T-shirt from blah to booyah!

FLIRTY FLORALS — Get girly and pair your T-shirt with a flirty floral skirt, straw hat, and fun platforms for a sunny spring day! In this look: Orientation Week Tee in MondayRadiate Goodness Skirt, Pretty in Polygons Heels by Jeffrey Campbell, and Fun In the Sun Hat.

GEEK CHIC — Tuck your tee into a pair of high-rise trousers for an effortlessly cool, geek chic ensemble. Lipstick red heels with a top knot updo and glasses take it up a notch! In this look: Pants of the Hour, Lipstick in Retrofuturist, Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Cambridge University, and Classic Diner Heel in Cherry.

BRIGHT AND BOLD — Make a bold statement by pairing a T-shirt with a brightly colored maxi skirt. A slouchy sweater helps to tone things down and acts as a comfy companion to a bright pop of color. In this look: Always Play Flare Skirt, Playing Card-igan, Scrunched for Time Bootie, and Spanish Trails Hat.

    I absolutely adore the second look! Probably because I think I’m in love with those trousers!

    All strikes me as fairly similar, essentially. Tshirt tucked into high waist. Basically the same style

    But I mean, I love it all. Staple summer looks amirite?? C:

    Great looks and she looks great. I love my t-shirts. When I tuck my shirt in, though, it looks bad. It really does. The high-waisted thing isn’t working for my body type. But I will do the same stuff with the shirt untucked and a lower waist.
