17 Things We Wear With Jeans and a Tee to Look Stylish
If you're finding yourself in a mid-January outfit slump fuelled by long holiday weekends and perpetually grey skies, well, you've come to the right place. This time of year, we typically feel completely zapped of outfit inspiration and default to the combinations we know and love. For us, jeans and a plain tee is one of those combos we've come to rely on heavily. Sound familiar? Good, because we're about to inject some newness to the one outfit we know you repeat the most.

These are wardrobe basics we know for a fact get a lot of wear, so to make them feel fresh again, it's all in the styling.

"The pinch waist jean is wildly flattering. I've never gotten so many compliments on a pair of jeans before. If I'm already going casual with jeans and a tee, I keep it in that realm by adding a cozy sweatshirt. You can always add a blazer on top of the sweatshirt if you want to polish the look a little." —Kat Collings, Editor in Chief
"To keep my denim outfits feeling fresh, I rotate the style of jeans I pair with a simple tee. Right now, I'm really into the looser look, especially jeans that are fitted in the hips and waist and baggier throughout the leg, like the below from Citizens of Humanity. I also rotate my accessories. Whether it's a pair of crystal earrings or a set of layered gold necklaces, you can't go wrong by adding a third piece. At the moment, though, I'm all here for the headband trend." — Michelle Scanga, managing editor
