Everyone has those days, where you are not in the mood for dressing up, or you just want to keep it simple. Even though I would say I like it more extra when it comes to fashion and style, I do also have those not-in-the-mood and keep it simple days.
The problem with a simple outfit is that it can look a bit dull and boring very quickly. And at this point, we are wondering what the Parisians are doing and what it is about that “je ne sais quoi” that makes all Parisian girls enviable and always look stylish in the most straightforward clothes. How to dress effortlessly chic is a secret for itself, which I also already talked about, but today I am going to show you how to wear a t-shirt and jeans, and still looking stylish!
I decided to go for a classic white t-shirt and for the jeans, I choose a ripped mom-jeans ( read here why you absolutely need a mom-jeans as well!) for a more edgy look and classic skinny jeans for those, who want it a little bit chicer. For both looks, I tucked my t-shirt in, because this way it gets more a lovely silhouette and it takes the outfit instantly to the next level.

To be honest, Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons, when it comes to fashion because during summer it is too hot and on the other hand, during winter it is too cold. With perfect mild and comfortable temperatures, you can add a jacket to your look.
A leather jacket will give your simple outfit immediately a different impression, and another good choice would be a blazer for example.
Since the t-shirt is tucked into the jeans, a pretty belt is also another perfect accessory. I have to admit, that I forget my belt when we shot the photos (it was like 6 am in the morning, and I’m not a morning person, lol.)
Finishing the look with a stylish pair of sunglasses and your outfit is still simple but definitely more stylish.
HEELS VS. SNEAKERS
I am definitely more the high heel girl than a sneaker one, but for the days where I have to walk around a lot, I am, of course, wearing sneakers or flats. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with white sneakers or black heels. For the choice of shoes, it really depends on what you prefer and if you want to have a more edgy or classy appearance.
Last but not least, finishing the look with a stylish bag. A beautiful and sophisticated handbag will always be the cherry of an outfit. Go for classic shapes and models, and your look will immediately appear as more expensive from head to toe, which will give you that “rich girl on the weekend” effect like Serena Van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl.
