The New Tee + Skirt Uniform

Have you all noticed this fabulous streetstyle trend? The one where ladies pair a plain white or grey tee—or one with a cheeky saying—with a prim pencil skirt and pumps? Can I just say I LOVE it?

What a chic, fresh look, and an easy recipe:

  1. Take a short-sleeved tee that’s just a little roomy and roll up the sleeves.
  2. Slip on a pencil skirt of virtually any fabrication and tuck your tee into it.
  3. Add heels and a pile on the jewelry and you’re done!

Get the look:

And for additional bling, there are so many eternity rings from Pepper Pink I love, I could stack them up to the sky—totally swooning over all the rose gold ones.


  1. Yes, I really love this combination, I need to find the perfect tee so I can rock this too! Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve read your blog but it’s great to be back!

  2. Love it! I have the pencil skirt and the stilettos, but I think I need a blousy t-shirt. None of mine say anything, and they’re all very fitted. I feel an urge to copy the look coming on. Thanks for pointing it out!

  3. I agree, I love this combo! It’s so fun and unexpected! One of the things I love most about fashion is combining the unexpected and making it work! I def think I’m gonna have to try this one out! 🙂

    1. Me too, Stephanie. I like high/low and also feminine with a rocker or hard edge. Those kind of contradictions keep it interesting.
