CLASSIC STYLE (WELL…KINDA.)
- August 01, 2017
Everybody knows that blue jeans and a white shirt are a CLASSIC combination. So, while it’s super easy to pull off (for everyone), it can get a bit boring.
Here’s how you can make this classic outfit choice look fresh and fun:
- Experiment with different styles/fit. Instead of wearing high-waist skinny jeans (like I always do), I went for a regular-waist flare-bottom pair (from Calvin Klein). Also, instead of a classic button down, I went for an oversized, trumpet-sleeved shirt (from ZARA).
- Try different styles of denim. You don’t always have to go for basic blue jeans. You can try something as light-wash as the pair I’m wearing. You could add a little oomph with embroidered jeans or even go for a funky pair of blue acid-wash jeans. Experiment away!
- Don’t be afraid to accessorise. I completed the look with a white denim bag (H&M), tiny indigo earrings, and a delicate jade pendant (Freedom jewellery @ Topshop). You could add a statement necklace or earrings and seamlessly take this look from day-wear to a night-out outfit!
- Don’t be afraid to add a little bit of colour. Sure, a red lip is classic. But since we’re taking a break from the classics today, why not opt for a different, fun lip-colour, like purple (I’m wearing Heroine by MAC), berry, fuschia, teal or even indigo! On the other hand, go for super simple makeup (or none at all, I don’t judge) and instead add colour to your outfit, with your bag or your shoes!
It’s very easy to go overboard with the accessories when your outfit base is this classic and simple. But it is important to always remember to let your outfit shine.
These were my top tips on styling this classic combination. So, experiment as much as you’d like, pose in front of the mirror a billion times till you feel like a total babe, take a bajillion selfies, and most importantly, remember to be true to yourself with the look. There is no point in trying to look like someone or something you’re not because you’re pretty damn badass exactly the way you are!
That’s all for today!
