Every girl has at least one or two, or if you’re like me, you have many. I’m talking about band shirts, and although they can be a fashion statement by themselves, you sometimes want a new way to wear it besides the classic jeans with t-shirt look. So, breather new life into your wardrobe with these 5 cute ways to wear your favorite band shirts.
If you want to have a more polished look, or if you have a relaxed dress code at your office, then you can throw on your favorite band shirt and top it with a blazer to class up your rocker look. Stick with your rock style and wear a plaid or studded blazer for a little extra flare to your mature ensemble. You can get really fun with this look by adding colorful shoes like royal blue boots that add a pop of color to the black and gray palette.
Chop it Up
Have an old band shirt that has seen better days? Don’t toss it, re-purpose it! Cut off a triangle at the neck line to add a little cleavage, or razor cut the back to have a looser hanging strips that show a colored tank top or bandeau bra underneath. You can even cut strips and tie them together to tighten it if you want to use an over-sized band shirt. This works great so that you don’t have to take it in and get it altered. Whether you have an old band shirt, or you just don’t like the crew-neck neckline, you can get creative and end up with something that’s one of a kind.
Make It Sweet
Don’t want the unisex look that so often comes with wearing a band shirt, then pair it with a feminine skirt to sweeten the look. Pair your band shirt with a long, flowing, maxy shirt or cut it into a crop top and wear with high-waisted skirts to elongate your figure while giving your band shirt a new look. You can even cut off the sleeves to make a loost sitting tank top. Vamp up your look with a cute colored hat, a boho shoulder bag, and some delicate jewelry to complete the statement.
Make It Sexy
If you have a long shirt that you think is a little too big that you will never wear it, use some imagination, and see what kind of ensemble could be made from it. You can use an over-sized band shirt as a dress if it is long enough on you. Add some sneakers for daytime, or slip into some heels or knee-high boots to give it some extra sex appeal. Class it up with a diamond choker and fancy hairdo to make your old band tee look like it has breathed new life. Throw on a light jacket and you will be ready for a night out on the town.
Toughen It Up
If you want something a little less on the sweet or sexy side, then add a classic leather jacket over any old band shirt to give it a tougher look. Add some high-waisted jeans and suspenders to pull the entire look together. Feel like a bad ass, and look like a fierce female with this classic pair that never fails. This look could work for any night out at a club, a concert, coffee date, or a bar crawl with friends. This versatile look is sure to draw some attention for all the right reasons.
Plus, this look is something that could work for women that don’t want a feminine style, and instead a more androgynous look. Just add a guy’s leather jacket that won’t be so fitted to the body, and you will have a unisex look.
