Who doesn't love the traditional look of blue jeans and the white T-Shirt? James Dean knew he nailed this look. How easy it looks. Effortless and eye-catching.
A uniform of sorts. Does everyone look as good as James Dean, Miranda Kerr, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana ...... in jeans and a T-shirt? No, not everyone does look as good as James, Miranda, Marilyn, Diana...
How do we know if we have pulled this look off?
Well you could pull this look off if:
- you have incredibly long legs
- an amazing butt
- amazing statement hair that you can swish over your shoulder
- perhaps a great "I've spent my life outdoors" tan
- can move like a model on the cat walk
- no excess luggage around the waist area
- a waist
- slender thighs
- you are tall
We look at the catalogue...we see what we want to look like....we buy the clothes advertised and....we get short changed.
I'm not saying don't wear jeans with a white T-shirt! I am saying tweak your jeans and t-shirt look, to flatter your body shape, colouring and height.
White T-shirt with denin jeans issues:
1. Oh No:
Two different colours cut you in two and make you look shorter than you need to look!
Wear a T-shirt that is a similar color to your jeans which will make you look Taller.
2. Oh no:
If you have a long body and short legs then this outfit will not help your legs look any longer
Wear shoes with heels to lengthen your legs and avoid flat shoes.
3. Oh no:
If you have excess in your hips and waist area, everyone will know it!
Wear a top that has an all-over medium sized print and don't tuck your top in your waistband.
4. Oh no:
If the jeans are in a strech fabric are you always hitching up your pants?
Get a belt and wear it!
5. Oh no:
If you are wearing an ill fitting bra and/or you haven't tightened your bra straps for a while..... the closer your chest is to the ground the older you look!
Shorten your straps as a quick fix. Next go to a department store that has a bra fitting expert to assist you. Consider buying a bra specially padded for wearing with t-shirts.
Last thought!! Take a look in a full length mirror and take a few selfies. Compare and tweak your look so you can wear your jeans and t-shirt with confidence. We don't have to have the bodies of models to wear this outfit. We just need to work with the bodies we have and make a few adjustments. When you have done your adjustments, you are then wearing an outfit that suits you not someone else's body.
Marilyn Monroe can wear jeans and a shirt but she looks more like Marilyn Monroe in a dress.
However....Here's the cold hard truth....
Some bodies should never be seen wearing Jeans and a T-shirt!
It's just as important to know what you should wear as well as what you should't!
Discover your own authentic style and dress to enhance your Colouring, Bodyshape and Personality.
