Anyway, to make sure you don’t get bored of the classic basic blue jeans and white T-shirt, although hard to believe, you could get bored of it. But still, to make sure your blue jeans and white T-shirt are up to all the latest summer 2018 fashion trends, here is one styling tip you need to know.
In short, if you want to look chic in your basic summer outfit, you need to style it with these #3 things. So what things I have in mind? First things first! Even though I’m pretty sure you already own at least one pair of dark blue jeans and if you are anything like me more than a dozen of a white T-shirts, we are checking the EDIT first.

DARK BLUE JEANS
Funny thing even though I must have more than a dozen white T-shirt and I wear them every day at home, this is only the second time I posted a white T-shirt outfit on Brunette from Wall Street. Anyway, I’m sharing more tips on how to style a white T-shirt in an exclusive guide the next time. About this T-shirt, I’m wearing here. It’s from H&M, and you can get it here (together with the black T-shirt – it’s 2 for the price of one deal).
HOW TO WEAR BASIC BLUE JEANS AND WHITE T-SHIRT THIS SUMMER
So what to wear with blue jeans and a white T-shirt to look chic and fashionable this summer? Well, I’m pretty sure you already know. Especially if you read my last fashion reports. The shoe trend report(here) and the bag trend report (Ps. you are forgiven if you haven’t read this one yet, as it’s recent – click here to read it later).
Whatsoever with all those different fashion trends trending this summer, it definitely doesn’t harm to say it twice. By the way, did you know there are 24 fashion trends just for bags(check them here)?
#3 THINGS THAT WILL INSTANTLY UPGRADE BLUE JEANS AND WHITE T-SHIRT
Anyway, back to this basic summer outfit. So how to wear your basic blue jeans and white T-shirt this summer? The same way I do. Luckily we don’t need much to upgrade our favourite everyday basic outfit this summer. All we need are these 3 things. Plus the ice cream, of course.
#1 WHITE MULES
First, the white mules obviously. Yes, those ugly mules that have been around for almost a year and yet fashionistas still love them. And yes, I kind of started growing feelings for them too.
Rember I also wore them with light blue jeans (here) and that chic white dress. You saw that last outfit in the first issue of the Fashion Sign. If you are like: “What the hell is Fashion Sign?” right now, then be sure to check this post here. In short, you will want to earn your Fashion Sign too.
About these white mules, I’m wearing here. These are from Sam Eldeman(shop here). They were super cheap, but unfortunately, I don’t find them as comfortable as my friends. I guess Sam Eldeman shoes are this way. You either praise them, or you don’t. Or you are somewhere in the middle because you get fashionable leather shoes on a budget and you just don’t want to admit they are not as comfortable as leather shoes should be.
Whatsoever, I just got new mules. Stuart Weitzman Mira mules (these ones here) Yes, I finally got them. Well, I kind of had to. White mules are here to stay for the next few months. And I really don’t want to walk around with a pain in my feet.
I expect my old white mules to turn into a pain machine after a while. You know this is a norm for $100-250 price ranged shoes after you have been wearing them on repeat for a while. Oh, don’t ask me what’s the thing with shoes you get for less than $100 because I don’t know.
#2 BASKET BAG
Admittedly, as fashionable the white mules are they can’t do all the work by themselves. Well, actually they can, but hey, where would all the fun be without a chic bag and IT sunglasses? Besides we need a bag for a sunscreen cream.
And this summer we style our basic white T-shirt and blue jeans with a basket bag or one of 28 other fashionable bags. Yes, the list is really long for summer 2018. You can find my bag shopping list here. Ha, I should actually write shopping-wish list as few bags are already out of stock. I told you everyone wants those bags.
Whatsoever, back to the basket bag, I’m wearing with my basic everyday outfit. I grabbed my adorable Nannacay basket bag (shop here) when I left home this time. It’s small but big enough for everything I need with me.
Want to know what I carry around in my Nannacy basket bag? Browse through the gallery below.
#3 CAT EYE SUNGLASSES
Lastly the sunglasses you should wear with the basic blue jeans and a white T-shirt. No, not the aviators this time. This summer we wear thin sunglasses only. Preferably Le SpecsLolita cat eye sunglasses I’m wearing too (shop here). Ps. If you are not a fan of this chic sunglasses, then you should get a rectangular frame. Well if none of these frames fit the shape of your face, then just get aviators. But in orange. Yes, orange-tinted lenses are trending now.
