Just A T-Shirt And Jeans

As you know, I like me a bit of whimsy, and embellishments certainly fall very squarely into that category. The embellished trend has been around a few seasons now. Like so many trends in fashion, embellishment-mania was likely ignited by herself, the Universal Arbiter of The Stylish, Miuccia Prada. Prada's embellishments for her Miu Miu line in the fall of 2009 exploded onto the scene, and subsequently onto the skirts, sweatshirts, and socks of the fashion crowd.

Lucky for me, you can now find various permutations of embellished everything in just about every high street retailer, for very reasonable prices. Let's face it, most of us are not going to wake up every day and reach for a fully-embellished, tailored suit. It's just not practical. For those of us who are not fashion editors, embellishment is more of a fun, statement piece to be worn under something, or even by itself. Another easy way to look interesting even when you are just in a t-shirt and jeans.

This chiffon snake-print tee was on the clearance rack at River Island in Glasgow. I'm digging it. It's easy to wear, drapes beautifully, and adds a bit of texture and interest to anything you put it with.

Embellished Tees.  Make it Happen.


  1. Casual done right! Love the whimsy combined with edgy footie.

  2. What a fun tee! The edginess of the snakeskin keeps it from skewing twee.

  3. This casual look would almost work anywhere..good job of styling!

  4. What a gorgeous T! It puts up any casual look. Love it.

  5. Amazing tee! It's an effortless look that has so many layers - snakeskin, embellishment and those gorgeous booties! It's simple, yet intricate and gorgeous at the same time. Love it!
    Happy New Year!

  6. I love it! It's not a shirt I would look at on the rack but seeing it on it's super cute. Looks comfy tool I love the sandals also.

  7. That tee is so cool...and nothing beats a tee that drapes just right. The embellishments are a happy bonus!

  8. So pretty ... just enough. I'm not usually a serious animal print lover, but I sure do appreciate this application and the bit of sparkle with it. It has a sense of humor. It's witty. I like that, and that suits you to a tee! (hmmm.....)
    Have a fabulous holiday, what's left of it!

  9. Less is more that's what they say and I totally agree :) Happy New Year from Dubai bunch both to you and Ronnie :)
