For the second installment of Down to a Tee, I sought out my close friend Pilar to produce a polished take on t-shirt attire. From her lipstick choices to her assortment of dainty jewelry, she is constantly inspiring me to prettify my own closet; her refined and elegant sensibility permeates her entire way of life. I’m honored to present a visual breakdown of what makes the outfit uniquely Pilar, as well as her response to the question: How do you style your t-shirts?
Occupation: Fashion Merchandising Student
Hails from: Mexico City/Texas
What is your personal aesthetic?
I would have to consider it classic, chic, and very girly!
How would you describe your outfit?
My outfit is casual and not much thought was put into it!! It was cold that morning and the shirt was the first long sleeve I ran into.
How often do you wear t-shirts?
Honestly, not very often but when I do I usually like to wear them with a blazer or with a skirt.
How do you feel about t-shirts in regards to fashion?
I feel like they are a basic part of clothing but when they are styled and decorated or designed correctly they are a great addition to any wardrobe!
Any favorite shops where you buy tees?
The places where I buy most of my t-shirts would have to be Urban Outfitters, boutiques, and Monikapolitan.com. I also love to buy the annual Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts and t-shirts from expositions at museums!
