Every one of us probably has a handful of tees hanging out in our closet— and actually, there may be more hiding inside that dresser over there. Everyone loves a good tee! They’re extremely comfortable and you can wear them almost anywhere but they usually aren’t much of a statement piece on their own. That’s why we wanted to collect a few tips that will help you see the true potential in your tees.

Add Some Jewelry

The great thing about a good tee is that you can elevate its look by modifying how you wear it or adding an accessory or two. Throwing on a simple necklace or two can take your outfit from stay-home to casual outings. You’ll be ready for a coffee date or lunch with friends.

Remember the neckline matters. Longer necklaces may look better with a higher neckline, and some shorter necklaces may be easier to show off if the neckline is V-shaped like seen on our Dreamer/Doer Reversible Tee.

Tuck or Tie

One trend we are loving right now is where you can partially tuck in your tee in the front. This makes the look of your tee more put together and shows off the design much better. Pair it with dress pants and your look is immediately elevated.

Remember the knot of the 90s? This trend is back and better than ever. You can tie a tee on the side for a more fitted and easy-going look. Pair it with a high-waisted skirt or jeans for a polished, yet extremely youthful, look.

Reverse It

Our Sseko reversible tees offer an additional benefit because you can turn them front-to-back, for a unique look where the design can be modified depending on the occasion. The front side has a graphic that can easily make it a statement piece. Or flip to the plain side for a beautiful basic. Check out our Wild and Free Tee. 

Same tee, different look. Different day. Which makes it great for travel too.

Add Layers

Lastly, you can always elevate the look of your basic tee by adding a jacket or cover-up like our beloved Multiway Shawl in Ivory Kawa. This gives it a touch of color and pattern. A layered look always dresses up a basic tee.

Add Depth

Don’t forget that footwear can also make a difference in how your look is styled. By throwing on some flats you can dress down your look and make it a tad more casual. Oftentimes this is a big player in the spring or summer months. 

On the opposite end, adding a nice ankle bootie or heels will elevate your outfit to make a bigger statement. Transitioning into the fall season is the perfect time to change things up. 

It’s all about choosing the right style for you. Take a chance and make it your own!
