How to Style A White Tee & Jeans 3 Ways W/ Our Editor-In-Chief

It’s a tale as old as time: accessories can make or break an outfit. Taking a fit from simple to stylish is not rocket science when you’ve got the right bag or shoes. Our Editor-in-Chief, Erika De La Cruz, loves the classic look of  jeans and a fresh white tee. It’s a #OOTD that is a staple here in LA. But what makes it or breaks it is how it’s accessorized. In the ultimate cool girl outfit switcheroo, she’s showing us girlies her accessory secrets to change up the look 3 different ways.  Take some style notes, because this 1 outfit, 3 way inspo will make you want to rethink this week’s wardrobe.

Casual Chic

Running errands, grabbing lunch at Sweetgreen, or making a trip to Erewhon deserves a fashionable look. Loafers are an elevated swap from the usual white sneaker. Erika slipped these Sam Edelman platform loafers on which elongated her wide legged Still Here jeans. To give her lush locks a statement, she threw on a knit bucket hat (yup, they’re still in fashion) by COS.  To complete the look, Erika grabbed a luxe go-to: a mini Prada bucket bag.

Golden Girl

Turn any daytime denim look into a cool “it girl” vibe by throwing on a pair of heels and grabbing a statement bag fit for happy hour.  Erika paired  these Marc Fisher heels with a neutral quilted Dior crossbody, tinted sunglasses and chunky bangle. This is an outfit that works on date night (just add a leather moto jacket later) or for after work hours drinks with the girls. Heads will be turned when walking into any room with this sassy Golden Girl vibe (yes, even Blanche would be proud).  

Pro Tip: A luxe bag truly brings together an outfit. Splurge on the best and wear it anywhere and everywhere.

White Hot

In fashion, the rules are there are no rules. But one rule Erika swears by is that a monochromatic statement always wins. Wearing a fresh all white outfit is a summer staple and this trend is perfect for brunch or a casual dinner al fresco. Erika swapped her pair of black loafers for these  Christian Louboutin babies and matched it with an Off-White Shoulder Bag. To make her tee and jeans really pop, she threw on an oversized pair of black sunnies. A fabulous touch to turn up the basic level.
