As British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always perfectly demonstrates, a few key pieces added to jeans and a t-shirt make a huge difference. She often dresses hers up with a fedora hat, ankle boots and a tote haanging off her arm. Some gold bracelets, sunglasses or a watch will also add further detail to the outfit.

Wearing jeans with a t-shirt is like having a blank canvas – there are many different trends and looks that can be created from it. Add a fringe kimono like Alessandra Ambrosio, and you instantly have a boho-inspired ensemble. Throw on a leather biker jacket, and the outfit has a rock chick edge. Pair with a tailored blazer to dress the outfit up, or work in the current 70s trend with a suede fringe vest. There are many options, and a great jacket or coat can turn a basic look into something very unique and custom looking.

Even a good beauty look can change how jeans and a t-shirt are styled: paint on a bright lip or add some braids to your hair, and it adds a polished and chic finishing touch to this simple outfit.
