If there ever was an outfit that embodied the concept of insouciance - a messy, imperfect sophistication - it would have to be the blazer + tee combination. It’s a look that can go almost anywhere, from a day in the office to a casual date. Here’s how to get the blazer + tee look:
1. Start with the core of the outfit: a simple t-shirt. For a sophisticated look, try a fitted tee in a solid color, perhaps with an interesting texture. Bonus points for trying a henley (as shown) instead of a regular v-neck or crewneck tee.
2. Pair the t-shirt with jeans, preferably dark denim in a straight cut.
3. Add a well-cut blazer to the mix. The tailoring on the blazer instantly elevates the rest of the outfit.
4. Finish the look off with casual accessories: a pair of John Varvatos sport sneakers and a canvas carryall.
