How To Make Your Jun E Caniel T-Shirt Stylish
When some people hear the word “t-shirt”, they automatically think of the typical over-sized tees that we get at concerts, on vacation, or for running marathons. Depending on the quality of the fabric and graphic, a t-shirt can be the center piece of any dress casual outfit. Many people do not know how to make their t-shirts more stylish. The very essence of Jun E Caniel lies in its limited edition sustainable tees. With every blog post I try to incorporate how the Jun E tees are not only comfortable, but stylish at the same time.
When I was first inspired to become a model, I would watch ANTM (America’s Next Top Model) and take mental notes on how to look, walk, stand, and act like a model. One piece of advice I will always remember is Tyra Banks preaching to the contestants that a t-shirt & a pair of jeans is all you need. Keeping this in mind I have never tried to over do a outfit because it could possibly take away from me (it’s vain, I know) and what I am wearing.
So, over time I have transformed into the girl who wears t-shirts a lot, but in a very stylish way. Now, many may ask “How do you make a t-shirt stylish? It’s a t-shirt.” There is a big different between wearing a t-shirt and looking like you just got out of bed and wearing a t-shirt and turning heads.
Tucking in a t-shirt is something that in 2013 not many people do. Just try it!! It takes your outfit from zero-sixty in no time. Shown in the photo above you can always rock your tee kind of carelessly tucked in. Or if you would like you shirt to be tucked in completely, use a belt. Wearing a belt makes your outfit look a little more clean.
Layering is every fashionable person’s best friend. Layering is a way of life. Even people who aren’t into to fashion layer their clothing and half of them don’t even realize what they are doing. When its comes to a Jun E tee, layering is one of your best options. You can layer with a blazer like I did in last week’s blog with the hamsa tee or with a scarf as shown above by Legend herself. It does not matter what or how you layer your tee, whatever choice you make should bring out the best in you and make you feel good.
Snip, Snip, Snip!!! Every summer I always find a day when I cut my old clothes and make them into something more fashionable or trendy. Cutting an old shirt into different styles can actually be fun. Plus it saves you money. When you cut and refashion an old shirt you have just created a new and stylish one. Above is a video from YouTube on how to cut your tees into a tank top, a crop top or a fringe top.
4.) Just Being Creative:
In the house of Jun E it’s all about creativity. Legend has already started cutting and stitching her old tees, making what we like to call a refashioned cowl neck tee. She cut off the excess part of the tee (the bottom of the t-shirt) making it into a loosely fitted cropped top. Then the collar is cut off to create a different neckline. Instead of wasting the material (always remember fellow Jun E people ZERO TO NO WASTE) Legend sews it to the neckline and the shirt is transferred into a cowl neck. I love it! Maybe once I have my baby I’ll be able to rock one and show off my tummy……lol
So there you have it! 4 easy steps on how to make your Jun E Tee more stylish and fashion forward.
The more creative the better!!!
