6 Ways To Style Jeans & a T-Shirt This Spring

Is there really anything better than jeans and a t-shirt? If I did a pie chart of what I actually wore most days that would clearly be the biggest wedge of the pie. Okay, that is a lie. I need to come totally clean: workout clothes would win. But still, a close second would be jeans and a t-shirt.

In the winter I layer the t-shirt with a big cardigan sweater that can sometimes resemble a bathrobe. If I am going for a more “dressed up” look, then I layer a blazer. But jeans and a t-shirt are easily the foundation for many of my looks. During the warmer months, it just ends there. The jeans just become a lighter fabric and are typically white, or maybe I switch in a bright color for a little variety.

Since opening the clothing store, I have expanded our selection of denim and t-shirts. I try to bring in new options each season, just in case customers are looking to update their personal collections of these basics. Stop by and see the latest additions. I think this spring we have our best selection yet.

  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
