Ever wondered why blue jeans and a white shirt is such a timeless classic combination? Look at the picture below.
This is how the original idea came from! Well, may be. It may be the simplest look you could think of, but it is one of style staples of the women’s wardrobe.
Blue jeans and white shirt is a crisp and clean solution that is easy to pull together and keeps you looking effortless at the same time!
You may consider blue jeans and a white top as off-duty dressing, but dress them up with a pair of high heels and you take simplicity to a new height and get something as stylish as the little black dress.
This may seem incredibly simple, but I’ve found a lot of people don’t own one of the most useful pieces for a good classic outfit: a plain well-fitted white shirt.
However, it is a great piece of item to invest into. Put it under a blazer, pair up with your jeans or add a hat. You may do the soft girl look or go the androgynous way, it looks great both ways.
When you have to attend an event or go for a girlie look, you can simply replace the white tee with an elegant blouse, add a statement piece of necklace and classic pumps. Nothing can spell modern classic better than this!
Let’s look at few illustrations below –
Our very own lovely fellow bloggers like Nini and Kelly Framel play the dress up look. Add a Peplum blouse, killer heels and a stunning bag for the evening look.
Wear your hat straight up! A hat can make all the difference. I personally love Fedora hats (see here and here). You can also add a scarf, a belt (like Kim) or a colored tote.
You may definitely choose to keep your denims short and still work up the look. Add a shocking color with your socks (see here) or an umbrella, even stockings can add a pinch of glamour! (See how I wore my denim shorts here)
Did you say jackets? Oh yeh, anytime.. and all kinds! Wear your winter trench coats or simply jazz up the look with a tailored jacket or blazer. A vest looks amazing too! (See how I wore my denim vest here)
Now, who says you can’t go upside down? Well, it looks equally awesome, simply add-on few colorful accessories. I personally love white pants!
Go casual! Wear your flared, distressed or cropped denims and you are good to go on those lazy days when dressing up is not that fun 😉 Don’t forget to add a bling to your outfit with some strappy sandals (like Cameron Diaz), a boxy clutch or a wrist watch.
Men will be men! They can easily take this blue and white combination a level up. Wear your attitude on your sleeves and voila! You are ready to rock the world!
