If you're a jeans and T-shirt kind of gal, dressing up your closet staples without buying a whole new outfit can be a challenge. But hey, there's no need to take the T-shirt out of the mix! With a few tweaks, your favorite comfy top can become the centerpiece of a cute, modern ensemble. You just need to know what to change for each occasion in your life.

day date

Hello, girly! This might just be the perfect day date outfit for summer food festivals or drinks by the beach. The ultra-feminine look uses a basic purple T-shirt and then takes some unexpected turns. There's no need to go matchy-matchy with the purple color. Mix up the look with beige neutrals and a surprise pop of color in the form of mint green. So on trend!

No one in the office needs to know you're wearing a T-shirt. This black peplum top adds a touch of style and class while still looking totally professional. Add in a pair of traditional gray slacks and hints of mustard yellow for a bold-yet-appropriate outfit. Then, make it edgy with a standout necklace, like this triangle-meets-turquoise number.

night out

We all have a patterned T-shirt in our closet we just don't know how to wear. Start with basic skinny jeans and work from there! We paired this tee with an adorable Union Jack necklace, a quilted cross-body bag and some seriously cute wedges. Make it age and body appropriate by adding a jacket or switching out the skinnies for jeans that flatter your shape.

Run all of those errands and do it in comfort and style. Start with a long sleeved T-shirt, then style in a breeze. The last thing you want to worry about when running around town is tugging and adjusting your outfit to make it look right. This pleated maxi skirt requires little to no maintenance, making trips in and out of the car effortless. We love it with this pair of camel wedges, but they can easily be swapped out for a pair of flats or sandals for extra comfort.
