10 T-Shirt And Jean Combinations That Are Anything But Basic

A T-shirt and jeans is the ultimate outfit combination—but that doesn’t mean your look has to be basic. Whether you’re a high-waisted hottie or a dark denim darling, we’ve got a look for you that’s good for more than a lazy Sunday.


Rockin’ Those Rips

Give high-waisted jeans a modern spin with this daring denim set. The frayed hems and rips pull this pair squarely out of the mom-jean realm. And paired with this pale pink slash neck tee, you’ll have just the right amount of sugar and spice to get through the day.

Pretty in Pearls



Fringe is in with this pretty T-shirt. We love how the pink looks with these pearly accents—it’s flirty and feminine, which we’re totally here for. Pair it with these ultra flattering cut-off jeans—the black denim adds some great contrast to the otherwise pale color scheme of the top.

Belled and Blue



Bell sleeves are back, and with this pretty blue tee, the reason why is obvious. This shirt is light and elegant, so we paired it with these bright white skinny jeans for a clean and cultivated look.

A Pop of Pink

(Not) A Plain White Tee

Graphic Tee and Acid-Washed Jeans
