Or so I thought. I used to consider feminine and t-shirt as antonyms, but with a little creativity, they can very practically be incorporated into a summer wardrobe.
- Get the right size. Ask for the small or extra small. It is nearly impossible to wear a men's large t-shirt and not look like... well, you're wearing a men's large t-shirt. :P If you can't get the right size, consider doing a little alteration. I have a feminine t-shirt tutorial on my sewing blog to get you started. :)
- Roll the sleeves. The little cuff adds so much cute and takes away some slop. I usually roll mine a little higher than I have in these pictures, but my sleeves have Blimey Cow's autographs all over them so I don't like to roll those away ha.
- Tuck it in. But just a little. No t-shirts tucked completely into denim skirts with brown leather belts, please. Unless you've altered your t-shirt to fit snugly in the hips, this is a must. T-shirt and skirt outfits need hip definition. I guess you could wear a belt over the t-shirt too (like this one), but that takes away some of the ease of the outfit. :)
- Wear jewelry. Something casual, like a cord around your wrist (like I have here) and your favorite earrings. I've done pearls before and it's a better look than you'd think, but they're not necessary to dress with class.
- Do your hair. I loooove t-shirts for Mondays when I have leftover curly hair. (Or Tuesday, as this case may be). If your hair is straight or kinda confused, do a couple little braids from the part in your hair to give some interest and volume. Ponytails may be done, but do them well. Give some volume on top by adding a braid or two, don't be afraid of teasing, and use a nice hair tie. Add a ribbon, flower, or some curl. :)
While we're on the subject, are you looking for an encouraging birthday present for a brother or dad? Check out BoldThreadz. They've created some awesome looking t-shirts with an even better message. "Ink That Makes You Think... Biblically" is their tagline. Love that. :D
