This shirt is one that just looks like nothing fancy on a computer screen, but in real life, it’s a good one to have. I love the colors because you can combine any of those within the rest of your outfit. Since the shirt is short sleeved, I will layer it with jackets and sweaters once it gets cold. I originally thought of putting a leather jacket over this, or a black cable knit sweater and having it peek out the top and bottom. I will style it in the winter to show how something like this can be versatile and go from warm weather to cold. The shirt is also longer in the back, which is something I love and almost require when it comes to my wardrobe right now. It’s practical for a few reasons: the obvious of having coverage when moving and bending, being able to have it show when layering.

I mentioned on instagram that these hi-lo jeans are somewhat diy. Hi-lo jeans are all the rage right now, you will see most retailers have jumped on the band wagon. A few are doing it with a fake raw edge and I just don’t like that look… like they fray it for you but keep a seam. And other brands are just too expensive when you can literally do it yourself. And you know I’m going to find that deal in the chicest way possible!

I took a pair of straight leg J.Crew jeans that were too long for me and looked bad rolled (I say the style because I think true skinny jeans won’t look at good when you cut them because they will be hugging your ankle). I cut the front while on so I could get it at the perfect length, which is a tiny bit above the ankle. You don’t want to go too low because you don’t want the back to hit your shoes. I love the ankle length jeans because they flatter your leg the best, and usually hit at just the right place for shoe boots. I definitely suggest making a pair of hi-lo jeans yourself, it’s going to look the best! If you try it, send me pics, I would love to see!
