There are days where you just want to roll out of bed, throw on a random top, and head out the door. Of course, that’s not always acceptable when you’re a responsible adult. Your best alternative? Keep that t-shirt, but give your execution some extra thought. Below, a few simple tricks for dressing up a simple tee:

1. (Not) over it

You know those overalls you wear on lazy days? Pop a white tee underneath, add some slick accessories, and we’ll even let you walk out the house with bed hair.

2. Flight risk
When dressing for a flight, comfort is still your main goal. No reason to look like a slob though! A lightweight coat in a pretty color keeps you warm and jazzes up basic pieces.


3. Cocktail hour
Spontaneous drinks with your friends call for an elevated version of the shirt-and-skirt combo. Choose a statement skirt—try something in leather—to look like you made an effort.

4. So shoe me
Fancy footwear and a posh (or posh-looking) bag have a way of making even the most dressed down items look expensive. Trust us on this.

5. Silk route
We love a good silk bomber or souvenir jacket for those rare times it actually gets cold. Top off your shirt and cut-offs with one for a movie date or random road trip.

6. Pearly white
Mix high-low dressing by slipping on your favorite white tee (graphic or otherwise) and summer-ready white jeans, and adding slightly granny accessories such as a knotted scarf and pointy toe flats.
