There are several types of T-shirts you can pair with your jeans. These tees include plain, Breton,  Henley, printed T-shirts, etc.

Plain T-shirts

These are tees with solid colours that you can pair with any jeans. You can first begin with a white tee since white goes with anything. Wear your white T-shirt with a blue, black or grey jeans. You can also wear black and other neutral coloured plain T-shirts with your jeans.

Breton T-shirts

Otherwise known as striped T-shirts, Breton T-shirts have geometric patterns that distinguish them from printed T-shirts. Striped T-shirts are better paired with solid coloured bottoms such as plain trousers, black jeans, blue jeans or plain coloured chinos.

Printed T-shirts

These include logo tees or T-shirts with graphics or inscriptions. When pairing a printed tee with jeans, keep it subtle. Printed T-shirts also go well with solid coloured bottoms.

Henley T-shirts

Henley T-shirts have notched necklines with buttons. They are best worn in plain colours as the notched neckline and buttons already add details to the top. You can pair a neutral or mild coloured Henley T-shirt with blue, grey or dark jeans.

Long-sleeved T-shirts

When the weather is a bit cold and you want to retain your style, grab on a long-sleeved T-shirt with a pair of jeans. Long-sleeved T-shirts usually come with fit. You can wear them in white, black, grey, navy blue colours or even henley. If you want to add an element of details to your outfit, put on a striped or Henley long-sleeved T-shirt or simply wear a printed one.

2. Pick a Footwear

You have to know how to combine shoes with your jeans and T-shirt. You can rock the outfit with loafers, palms, sandals, boots, sneakers, or other shoes for men suitable for casual looks. Personally, I’d recommend sneakers because when paired with jeans and T-shirt, they give you a smart casual look. Furthermore, sneakers have evolved past the sporty feel usually attached to it. They are now staples in every person’s wardrobe especially when the aim is to get a killer casual look. With classic designer labels like Nike and Adidas saturating the market with modernised sneakers, what choice have you other than to include them as the perfect complement to denim and T-shirt combo.

3. Grab Your Sunglasses
