Are you stuck in a jeans and a t-shirt rut? Try these three tips to add a little personality to your basics.
I’m a total sucker for jeans and a t-shirt. But sometimes putting on two basics makes, well…a basic outfit. Let’s add a little personality.
I wanted to share three easy tips to make a really basic outfit special, visually interesting, and let your personality shine through!
Three tips for getting out of your Jeans and T-Shirt Slump:
1. Add accessories.
Add a baseball cap. A hair bow. A scarf in your hair. A straw hat. Any of these will take even the most basic jeans and tee outfit to the next level. I’m obsessed with these hair bows and bought the mauve colored one AND the striped one.
2. Add a fun pair of shoes.
Brightly colored flats, embellished sandals, fun sneakers, a cute pair of wedges…there are endless possibilities beyond an old pair of flip flops. Push yourself a little and wear something you wouldn’t naturally reach for.
Swap out your tee for something with a little more personality.
You guys know I love a good tee, but there are tons of cute tops that are just as comfortable, but make your outfit so much more special. I linked a few favorites below!
I’ve started a really fun series on my Instagram Stories called Get Dressed with Merrick where I share what I’m wearing that day, along with styling advice, outfit variations, and shopping tips. If you’ve missed them, I’ll be sharing a new one every week, and all of them will be going up on YouTube soon!
