Since Big Rona has been here my days are filled with either shorts or joggers and always a t-shirt. To be completely honest, I have never been an eager to get dressed up person. I actually love joggers, sweat pants, shorts and t-shirts, it has been my happy fashion place. Yet, here I am during the Rona eager to get dressed, even if it is just the grocery store. I find myself putting on jeans to do the simplest of tasks. Although, I love my casual wear, it has been worn out! Since Big Rona has been visiting I have had a couple times when I absolutely needed to get dressed, and as excited as I am to put on a real outfit I wanted to maintain some of my casual relax wear. I had a couple reasons to get dressed; a funeral and work training, despite being specific events the tips below will work for any occasion.
The Graphic Tee
My job has a “Dress for your Day” policy but you cannot wear t-shirts or tennis shoes. I decided to break the rules a little bit because, well, it is The Rona. I wanted to mostly fit our dress code but comfortably. So, I opted for a graphic tee. Here are some tips to pull off a work friendly or even friendly outfit with a T-shirt.
Tuck your tee in!!!!
Iron the tee if necessary
Nice quality tee
Pair it with casual pants
Vans, Aldo or comparable Nike’s
Make sure your graphic tee is appropriate for your environment
Think about what is on your shirt
Solid Color Tee
Unfortunately, I had some funeral events to attend and I wanted to be dressed appropriately but comfortable. Also, it was hot! Although I have a blazer on in the picture, I actually did not keep the blazer on. Instead of opting for the graphic tee, I kept it very clean and went with the solid color tee. I believe the solid color tee is best for events where you need to have a more clean look. Here are some solid tee tips:
Tuck in the tee
Be sure to IRON your tee
Solid color (in any color will work)
Add a top layer of a blazer, cardigan, sweater, etc
