T-Shirt Street Style

3

The “t-shirt and jeans” combo is often referenced when referring to casual and carefree attire. While a t-shirt and jeans is a comfy, cozy standby, it shouldn’t be dismissed as a careless option. T-shirts can be dressed up or down, and can be the foundation for an outfit that’s anything but casual. Graphic tees are an especially bold way to where the style as they often scream with personality, especially the styles we’re seeing on the catwalks and sidewalks now!

All-White Wardrobe

This winter we’re seeing white, and it’s not just on the snow-covered streets. A new trend has taken the slippery sidewalks by snowstorm, and that is head-to-toe white. From the coat down to the boots, fashionistas are rocking all-white ensembles. Mixing whites isn’t off the table, making this look easy to style. The only foreseeable problem with this style? Keeping your pieces pristine! But if the dry cleaner isn’t an issue, why not rock it? GcYrbt75yuxRy0f-PNWmEob2
