If you love being comfortable at work, you’re definitely not alone. We’d all love to wear a jersey knit shirt, a pony cap, or a mama bear shirt once in a while, even to an important function. As the cooler weather arrives, some of us get very excited about the possibilities of sweatshirts and sweaters and all kinds of cozy cold weather accessories.
It can be difficult to figure out how to wear our most comfortable clothes out and about, dressing them up in a way that makes them appropriate for every situation. We feel your pain: read on for six great tips for dressing up that jersey knit shirt or tee shirt so you can wear it to the office!
Spaghetti Straps and Tennis Shoes
You might not think of spaghetti straps as office wear, but you can pull it off if you put your favorite jersey knit shirt underneath. Pair it with some nice tennis shoes and you’ll be comfortable and stylish. Make sure the shoes are white or black and in spotless shape.
Dress Up With a Wrap Coat
Wrap coats cover a multitude of sins, so make sure you invest in one. Throw one over some skinny pants and your most comfortable jersey knit shirt, slap on some heels, and no one will ever know you’ve got a tshirt on underneath. You’ll look like a force to be reckoned with but will feel great doing it.
Prints and Wedges
This can be a hard one to pull off, but you can do it. If you’ve got a henley-style shirt that you just want to spend every second wearing, try pairing it with a matching pair of trousers in a fun print. Some classy heels or wedges will dress it right up.
Pencil Skirt and Leather Jacket
Your classic white jersey knit shirt will make a statement at work when you pair it with a sleek leather jacket and a pencil skirt with a high waist. You’re combining elegance with comfort and doing it in a chic way.
Go All White
Tuck a nice t-shirt into white skinny jeans. Add a white coat and some wedge sandals in a color that make it pop. Now you’ve got a look that’s both comfortable and stunning.
Flats and Cardigans
You have to tread carefully here if you don’t want to look like everyone’s favorite grandmother. But you don’t have to use heels to dress up your favorite jersey knit shirt. Try pairing it with a long cardigan, some striped trousers that add visual interest, and cool flats. Make sure your flats look young and fun and you’ll be able to pull this one off.
You can wear your favorite jersey knit shirt to the office, and you can look great while doing so. Just dress it up with some flashes of color, a bit of leather, an all-white stunner, or the perfect heels. Then head off to work enjoying the comfort of a t-shirt underneath.
