Do you believe that something as simple as how you dress could affect your attitude, and even more importantly, your self-confidence? Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trend, it’s about feeling good about what you’re wearing, looking put together and feeling self-assured in any situation. However, sometimes the statements on our fashion pieces can give us that boost of confidence where needed. The slogan tee can be a weapon of choice in order to make a statement without saying a word. It can also be your wearable inspiration.
When I saw this slogan tee top from Goodwill, I immediate swooped it up. Check out the slogan: Work Hard, Hustle Harder, Kill Everything. This is pure motivation. This is inspiring. This slogan tee has the ability to boost my confidence even when I am not trying. I am such a fan of thrifting my slogan and graphic tees from thrift stores. The thrill of hunting through the t-shirt section, and of course the amazing prices at the thrift stores cannot be beaten. I thrifted this slogan t-shirt for only $1.99. Motivation for only $1.99 – I’ll take it!
Honestly speaking, I don’t often tend to grab jeans and a t-shirt as first choices. However, when I do consider styling my slogan tees, I always tend to add a blazer to the mix, as incorporating blazers to these outfits will make the look stylish and comfortable. Which busy woman does not love a quick and easy outfit idea. In styling this slogan tee, I choose this black tailored fringe blazer from Banana Republic. I bought it during the end of season amazing clearance sale for $24.00. It had originally retailed for $128. The tailored blazer smartens up the look, and makes the look suitable for an evening out.
I think the key to wearing the jeans and slogan tee look is to ensure all the other parts are sophisticated enough so you avoid the dreaded student look. The aim is to look like you’ve just dashed out of the house and you didn’t have time to change your top. The finally ensemble should say ‘effortless chic’. At the risk of stating the obvious, make sure you have jeans that look great on you. If they don’t fit you well, you’ll look sloppy and frumpy no matter how perfectly accessorized, or how motivating your slogan tee. They can be dressy or casual, depending on the look you’re going for. Here, I styled this look with these fabulous white skinny jeans from Old Navy. They are currently 40% off $40!
Of course, a great pair of heels always goes a long way in making an outfit pop, especially when that outfit is a jeans and slogan tee combo. These Chinese Laundry gorgeous aztec print heels were only $34 when I purchased them on Amazon. I initially saw them in a Style Watch magazine, and searched everywhere for the best available price. They are stunning, comfortable and sets off any outfit.
Finally, I accessorized with this gray envelope clutch that I got as a Christmas present. I love a great clutch as it tends to make the outfit uber chic and sleek in my opinion. If you don’t have a couple of clutches for your evening affairs, you should definitely consider adding them to your rotations.
Have I convinced you to rock some slogan tees, especially ones that provides you motivation and builds on your confidence. Try to remember that your closet is far from frivolous. It contains a myriad of channels to heightened performance, a selection of gateways to the best versions of yourself.
