Rock Brigade: A New Way to Wear That Concert Tee?

How to Wear Band T-Shirt with a Dress

If you’re like me, you usually wear your vintage t-shirt with denim. Let’s face it, most of my outfits involve jeans, so this would make sense. This summer, however, I am trying to change it up. I’m trying to be thrifty, and this means stretching my wardrobe to the limit. If this were an Eagles t-shirt, I would have already made a “takin’ it to the limit” joke, but it’s a Def Leppard t-shirt, so stay tuned while I try to make some styling tip somehow give entry to the statement “love bites.”

Okay. This is easy. Go to your closet. Find a dress. It could be floral, it could be printed dots. It could have birds on it. In my opinion, the more girlie the better. Make sure the dress doesn’t have a whole lot of embellishment on the top. No ruffles, minimal buttons. Alright. Now try putting your favorite concert t-shirt on over that dress. Viola. You look adorably badass, and you feel totally comfortable! You’ve probably seen this method before, but I for some reason had to feel inspired to break out of my jeans this weekend. But guess what? It got so cold here after I put this outfit on, that I had to borrow my friend Hilah’s pants. Foiled again. But speaking of Hilah, go ahead and scroll down to check out the video we did together for her site, Hilah Cooking.

    I love this post! I have so many band tees, and I hardly ever wear jeans so I’m always forget to pull them out. I actually have that exact dress, so I can really copy this. 😀

    nice outfit, but I loved the video! You two were very charming. I wish I was that cute on video. It’s probably a good thing I can use the excuse that my video camera isn’t working.

    I am such a weirdo shoe stalker. With each image I skipped to, a little bit more of the shoe/wedge/sandal combo was revealed until I was finally satisfied that I had seen all I needed of them and my verdict – they are lovely :)

    Thanks for the uplifting comment, it was much appreciated xx

    And those clogs are pretty damn awesome:) I must have them for myself.

  13. Cute! I think the floral is the perfect companion for your tee. Go-to outfit!

    What a great idea! I wore my concert t-shirts with pretty floral skirts all last summer, so I had a similar idea! I’m definitely going to try this out in the near future
