The Tie-Dye T-Shirt

I love pairing something really sophisticated like a dress pant with something unexpected, say, a tie dye t-shirt! Preferably with that “I’m sooooo casual” sleeve roll.

I used to work with this ultra cool woman when I first started out in NYC, who had the perfect sort of uniform (I know I keep talking about this), that consisted of a t-shirt rolled at the sleeves, sleek tuxedo type pants creased down the front, and stilettos. I know, stilettos are ambitious but I always thought it was such a good mix of casual and dressy. Her look truly was day-to-night. Cut to me scrambling to borrow someones lipstick and a weird sample if I wanted to go out after work (I worked in a fashion design studio at the time). The struggle is real!

I think the tie dye t-shirt is the perfect ying to your fancy yang, if ya know what I mean.
