The New T-Shirt: A Classic Refined

On Jessica: Vince top, Paige jeans, Primary clutch, and Maison Martin Margiela jewelry. On Bao: Theory top, Citizens of Humanity jeans, Dannijo and Pamela Love jewelry, and Alice + Olivia booties.

The casual tee is a staple long loved by the fashion world, and this season is no different. The twist, however, is instead of easy cotton silhouettes, tees are cropping up in refined fabrications like silk, leather, and satin. To try the trend, we asked two of our styling assistants to create looks for each other that show off a polished tee.

“A leather tee has a very clean line, so I paired it with fun, whimsical pants and edgy jewelry,” says Bao of her look for Jessica. “This gives the look a fusion of casual and rocker-chic.”

Balance is the key for working a tailored top into an everyday look. Jessica explains: “A floral tee reads very refined, so I styled it back to black skinny jeans and rock-influenced bracelets to give Bao some edgy proportion.”
