Get a Customized T-Shirt Look with Ease

How many times have you picked up t-shirts either online or in-person without trying them on, only to discover they are ill-fitting and hardly flattering.

You will find information such as how to choose your print style, the different styles, the fabric types, and best of all, some money-saving tips. The end result will look designer, will fit properly, and be exactly what you had hoped for.

Make Sure You Have All the Basics

Each season, there are new fashions and new trendy items that are released without fail. And while these trendy pieces can be tempting, the fact is that you can’t build a wardrobe out of them. You will first need the basics to anchor them. Having the basics means you can then get creative with accessories, pops of interest, color, prints, and so forth.

So, what are the basics? Think simple, uncomplicated, no patterns or prints, and neutral colors such as black, white, beige, navy, and tan. As for the pieces themselves, these include trousers, a blazer, button-down shirt, camisoles or tanks tops for layering, cardigan, simple skirt, and a simple basic dress.

While each of these items may seem boring and not exactly fashionable on their own, they are in fact versatile and can take on all different looks and styles, depending on what you pair with them.

Denim – It’s All in the Fit

If you are of the mindset that you have to spend a lot of money on denim in order to look fashionable, it’s time to think again. In reality, it comes down to the fit. If the denim fits you well, and it’s the right style for your body shape, then you’ll look like a million bucks no matter what.

This is why it’s a good idea to go in with an open mind and try a variety of styles, cuts, and washes. The only way to figure out what looks best on you is to give them all a try. Of course, keep in mind that they still need to be comfortable so that you can go about your daily activities.

Use Accessories as Interest

Now that you’ve got the basics covered, you’re probably wondering how you’ll add those pops of interest and fashion to your outfit. This is where accessories come into play. Accessories can take something dull and uninspired and elevate it to a whole new level. Another bonus is the fact that you can switch out your accessories by season and reflect what’s currently trending.

So what are the best accessories to spend money on? The good news is that there are many you can find at a reasonable price-point, you just need to be picky and put in the time to look around. 

Some options include a statement necklace such as a chunky beaded one or even a choker style necklace; layering a number of different cost-effective necklaces to achieve a more trendy look; stacking bracelets; a studded belt or one with embellishments on it; a purse in a bright pop of color; a bold scarf that can be styled in a number of ways; and of course, a pair of stylish looking sunglasses.

By using these tips, you’ll be able to look stylish and not have invested a fortune in the process.
