The Perfect White Tee and Skinnies

A simple outfit like this makes my life so much easier when I’m cramped on time and feel too lazy to think of creative dressing solutions. Over the years, I realized that not all white tees are created equal and same goes for my jeans. I mean, I still love my basic $5 Hanes tees that come in a pack of threes but for a day out and about, I love a great quality tee that makes effortless dressing, effortless but still chic.
Here are my tips on how to pick the perfect white tee:
1) For a slouchy look (my fav) go with a softer material and for structure and shape, go with something thicker. Also I always put my hand under the shirt to see how transparent it is.
2) Neckline. V-necks are great for dainty necklaces and crew necks are great for statement necklaces.
3) Size Up. Unless the tees are oversized are suppose to be snug, I always like to size up (size M) so I can tuck my tee in my jeans. This way I don’t get surprised when I accidentally dry them in the dryer for too long and they shrink a little.
4) Sleeve length. There is a perfect sleeve length for everyone! If you feel like your sleeves are too long, roll ’em up!
I love simple. But I love simple with an edge so I threw on these spiked out leopard pumps. I love the double zippers on these jeans.

  9. Those t-shirts look great! I just hate having to replace them multiple times because they absorb colors pretty strong in the wash or they fade over time. Super easy and cheap buy! If you are looking for a cropped t-shirt look, try the boys section of hanes t-shirts! I wish they came in v-neck but they don'.
