You can wear a solid/graphic t-shirt on top of a striped long sleeve shirt, a sleeveless dress on top of a neck turtle shirt. Or you can just add a denim jacket, leather jacket or any other coloured jacket to make your basic clothes look aesthetic. If you want to go for a formal look, then you should just add a blazer on top of a basic t-shirt.


Colour coordination

Just by matching your cloth colour to another one,  you can make your outfit aesthetic. Try matching the colours of your:

  • Belt & socks
  • Shoes & t-shirt
  • Hair accessories & t-shirt
  • Handbags & top

If you have any pastel coloured top and shorts/skirts then, pairing those two will also look cute. Or you can also match your accessories like handbag & shoes. Matching only 2 items looks really decent, but it is completely up to you, how far you want to go with it.

For instance, if you are wearing a plain red top then put on red sneakers, now your whole outfit is giving that aesthetic vibe.
