Well first off, I’d like to point out that there is absolutely nothing wrong with jeans and tees. If you like it, stick to it. If you’re wanting to change for the sake of someone else, you’ll most likely end up miserable.
But I digress…
If you’re looking for young, cheap and trendy, Forever 21 is the definitely place to go. Tbh, a large percentage of my wardrobe is from there because they have SO. MUCH. And at reasonable prices. And they cater to a variety of styles. Plus, they update their product sooo frequently so it’s incredibly easy to stay current.
Since you seem to be into jeans and t-shirts, might I suggest some ways to spruce up that look. Interesting tops and interesting jeans. Eliminate the idea that jeans and t-shirts are boring from your mind. Fashion has progressed far past that.
Instead of just plain blue jeans, try distressed, printed or colored jeans to instantly add some excitement to your look.
When it comes to tops, you can go for graphic tees or tees with interesting silhouettes and features, such as something cropped or billowy, or with sheer panels, cut-outs, or shoulder/collar detailing. The possibilities are virtually endless.
If you want to dress things up a bit, you can add some nice blouses into the mix to break up the monotony of your tees.
Also, don’t be afraid to accessorize. Play around with jewelry, shoes, hats, bags, etc. Even blazers and sweaters. Basically anything non-necessary (and when I say necessary, I mean the basic pieces that are keeping you from being naked) can enhance your outfit. The simplest outfit can be made outstanding with the right accessories. :)
I’d make a Polyvore set for you, but it’s too difficult using Forever 21 clothing because most of pictures have models with complete outfits on. I think the info above is sufficient, but if you’d like a Polyvore set, just let me know, and I’ll make you one.
And if you feel like this didn’t help AT ALL, just come back and we’ll work something out! :)
