Personal Style #2 | T-shirt and Jeans

personal style #2 t-shirt and jeans

The T-shirt and jeans combo have been pretty much the uniform for your everyday guy here. It is amazing what a simple fitted t-shirt and a pair of slim-cut jeans can do wonders for this whole look.

Pick a t-shirt that fits -not too tight and not too baggy- that has interesting details or prints. In this case, my t-shirt has a bleached effect, quite subtle but not plain. If the proportion is just right, tuck it in to show your belt. Also, if you are going for a plain jersey t-shirt, you might want to throw in some accessories like a necklace to add a little detail there or you can take the focus away from that plain t-shirt by jazzing up other parts of your outfit be it your shoes, a cool bag or an interesting bottom. Here, my accessories run the gamut from necklace, cuffs to rings; for me it’s pretty much every outfit’s staple.

I would also like to stress the importance of a pair of good-looking shoes. Probably the most important aspect of the outfit for me. Let’s just say, it will make or break an outfit. Throw in a cool bag and you are good to go! And let me just say this: men/guys/boys can all work a clutch! Just work it if you dare, let them stare and judge for they do not know. Agree or no?

Here’s what I wore:
Uniqlo newsboy cap
ASOS t-shirt
A.P.C. jeans
Aquascutum belt
ASOS brogues
Fendi clutch
Necklace, rings and cuffs from assorted places.
