ALTERNATIVES TO THE JEANS AND TEE COMBOFashion
08 November 2016
If you find yourself reaching for the classic combo of jeans and a tee more often than you would like, we've got a few funky alternatives for you to try. Say goodbye to your 'old faithfuls' and hello to your new go-to's:
SMART CASUAL: Tapered jogger pant & high-low blouse
Activewear meets effortless style.
It’s a little bit edgy and a lot comfortable which makes this the perfect combination for a relaxed coffee date or for those after-school pickups.
For daytime, wear with a street-style sneaker or dress it with a lace-up heel for night.

OFFICE: Culottes & a fitted shirt
Understated and uber chic.
For when you want to look sophisticated without trying too hard. A great spring combo for the office that will work for high summer too.
Culottes look especially elegant with the addition of a heel. If you are on the taller side, a brogue or loafer will add a relaxed French feel.

NIGHT OUT: A jumpsuit & cropped jacket
Making great style so simple.
Often overlooked and yet easy to pull together, a jumpsuit is a stylish (and at times edgy) all-in-one, all you need to add are your accessories.
Pair with a kimono jacket for a slightly more bohemian vibe.

WEEKEND: Midi skirt or ankle grazer & cold-shoulder top
Just like jeans and a tee only dressier.
This is the kind of look that is fun, easy to wear and has a little bit of a resort feel. Pair with an espadrille wedge and wide-brimmed sunhat for a weekend escape.
If off-the-shoulder isn’t your style opt for a cut-out sleeve for the same result.
