Can I please just have a laid back New Years? I don’t want to wear anything fancy but I’ll do it up and wear jeans. Regardless of my casual fashion plans I want to look like I give a fly so I’m going to accessorize like there’s a major award involved. When I do this I go for accessories like statement necklaces, bold earrings, hair barrettes and bands… these things can make any plain white t-shirt and jeans look fab!
Statement Necklaces. Chokers especially are so fabulous right now! But I do love an ornate look that hangs a little lower, depending on the event! Necklaces pictured are from Kenneth Jay Lane, Vanessa Mooney and Kate Spade New York.
Ornate Earrings. Now I usually don’t pair bold earrings with a statement necklace, but in some instances you can. Go with what’ you’re comfortable with! Earrings pictured are from Theia Jewelry, Rebecca Minkoff and Kenneth Jay Lane.
Whether you’re wearing your hair up or down it’s easy to dress it up and make everything look a little extra (in a good way!). I love ponytail holders that are more than just elastic like this one from alice + olivia and this By Lilla Hair Tie Set.
When I just want a quick twist up I love simple, but greater than drab clips like this one by Alexandre de Paris. If your hair will hold it well a comb is the way to go like this one by Avigail Adam… my hair doesn’t cooperate so I would need some bobby pins to help that out. These ones by Marc Jacobs are major faves.
Any of these hair styles are simple and pair up perfectly with your plain white tee… but the accessories just make it more interesting 😉 If you want even more, or like to hold back fly-aways like me, definitely add in a headband. I love this one from Marc Jacobs and this one from Mrs. President & Co.

Those are the items I am using to dress up my plain white tee, or those I’m eyeing up to wear in the future. Because let’s be honest… the t-shirt and jeans style is real and it’s not going away. You’re lucky I’m not showing up in yoga pants.
