How to Dress Up a T-Shirt

If you think T-shirts are strictly casual attire, think again. With the right outfit, a custom-embroidered T-shirt can look stylish and put-together as well as comfortable.

Here’s how to dress up a T-shirt:

Relaxed weekend look

For a relaxed yet trendy weekend look, tuck a T-shirt into your favorite skinny jeans. Pull on some boots over the jeans and finish the look with a tunic-length cardigan. Got a fancy brunch date? Swap the boots for a pair of heels to go with your denim.

Cute and put-together

T-shirts can pair with more than just jeans, of course. A custom-embroidered T-shirt looks fresh and unexpected atop a tailored pencil skirt and ankle boots. A T-shirt is also a great way to tone down and contrast with a dramatic skirt that has fringe, extra volume or a bold pattern. For a slimming effect, belt your waist.

Layered and trendy

Take inspiration from Beyoncé and pair your T-shirt with an embellished or fringed vest. For a more formal look, put an evening jacket over your tee. High shine and sequins will instantly take your top from everyday to dressed-up.


Instantly dress up a T-shirt by pairing it with fun accessories. Tie a patterned scarf around your neck, pick out some dramatic earrings or put on a statement necklace.

Of course, the best type of T-shirt to dress up is one that’s custom-embroidered! Stand out from the crowd in a one-of-a-kind T-shirt from Barb’s Custom Embroidery. Call us at 541-601-0594 to get a quote today!
