How to Dress Up Jeans & a Tee

Last month I traveled to Montreal. While there, I got to explore the city and although it was freezing, it was gorgeous. Today's post includes a simple, neutral look that is a popular go-to for many: jeans and a tee. This casual look doesn't have to be boring though - there are a few easy ways to dress up a look like this.


Tip 1

Step up your hairstyle

When you're wearing such a simple outfit, an easy way to dress up your look is to take a few extra minutes to curl your hair. Changing your hairstyle from straight to curly can quickly add a bit more style to your look.


Tip 2

Big sunglasses

Sunglasses are one of my favorite things to wear. They're an easy, grab & go accessory that look good with literally every outfit. This black pair are one of my favorites and they were only $15 at a boutique in Saratoga Springs, NY.


Tip 3

A colorful clutch

I may have a slight addiction to handbags and clutches. In my defense however, I use all of them! When wearing an all neutral outfit like this look, a great tip is to grab a bag or clutch that has a pop of color. This Big Buddha mustard yellow clutch is a perfect color for spring.


Tip 4

Bright lips

Makeup is an incredibly easy way to add dimension to a look. Simple outfit? Brighten the eyes, add a pop of color to the lips, or even apply some blush. In this case, I used my NYX  Liquid Suede Creme Lipstick in Tea & Cookies, which is the perfect pink and lasts all day.
