Ask the Bean: Not Just Your Basic Tee

February 12, 2009 • Fashion


Dear Bean:
I dress in business attire every day for work, I dress up to go out
with my friends at night, and every once in a while, I just want to
throw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. However I don’t want to look
like I just threw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Are there any tees
that aren’t so casual?
T-Shirt Trauma

Dear Trauma,
Who would have thought the simple combination of “t-shirt and jeans” could become so complicated?
It is probably the most comfortable and carefree outfit in the fashion
world, however is it so hard to find a t-shirt/jeans combination that
doesn’t equal baggy denim with a shapeless top? And the last thing we
want to do is complicate the outfit because the whole point of the
t-shirt and jeans is to be able to throw them on, look naturally
fantastic, and run out the door.

Jeans are usually easy. We as women have a natural obsession with denim, thereby resulting in owning at least five pairs. T-shirts on the other hand, are usually overlooked in order to buy the blouse, jacket, camisole, or pair of shoes. So when it comes to the point on a Sunday morning to grab the t-shirt option, there just aren’t many that seem favorable.
