Sprucing up your T-Shirt with Fun Bottoms

Quote of the day: “Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means.” Albert Einstein

Thanks to Jill, one of my readers for her recent request about how she could style her school t-shirt. I tried hard to make this series different than our graphic t-shirt series we did last summer. Therefore, I decided to see if we could put the focal point elsewhere! Join us as the 3 of us grab one of our graphic t-shirts and scour our closets for other items to put with it!!

If you have times where you are required to wear a t-shirt, but still want to look put together, this could be for you. Here, I started with the thought of putting the focal point on the bottom half of your outfit! What’s your favorite way of making your t-shirts more fun?

Jodie’s (50+) Outfit: Since I was the last one of us 3 to take these photos, I wanted to incorporate some variety other than a pair of print pants or a skirt.

So I brought out my culottes! I’m pretty sure, I wouldn’t have thought of buying culottes before blogging, but I’ve been surprised at how much I like them! There have been a resurgence of the cropped flare jeans in the stores lately. I know I would have thought this the worst for my figure in the past, but now I’m all about trying things before judging them. How about you?

Would you try a pair of cropped flare jeans? They’re not all going to be fabulous on you, but then again either are the normal jeans! So my advice is to just try them on when you’re shopping. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? Now this pair could cause you to shake your head in disbelief, but I think the ends make them totally fun! Who’s going to notice how tall you are when they are ogling over the hemline?

Fun with Style For 50+ Women

Of course, since we are talking about the bottom half of our outfits, I had to include my new pair of sandals.

I’ve been trying hard to incorporate a third color into my outfits. So instead of reaching for white shoes or purple (which I don’t even have), I thought the pink ones would be fun!

Blush pink is quite the popular color right now, and the nice thing is it’s almost a neutral since it’s so light! If you were thinking you needed a nude ballet flat, then maybe the pink ones might work instead! Then again, you could just get the pink sneakers and be not only comfortable but stylish!

Wearing your graphic t-shirt with Fun Bottoms

I still had to add in a pair of earrings to the outfit.

And normally, I would have worn a necklace or small scarf. However, since the idea was about the fun bottoms, I didn’t want to take away from them as the focal point!But the vast selection of totally fun earrings out there is almost overwhelming!! Seriously, have you perused the jewelry at Target, Charming Charlies or even Cost Plus lately?

If you worry about the thought that these earrings might not be in style for long, then I have an idea. Look for a pair that you could remove the tassels in the future and still have a great pair of earrings. That would totally be the case for the ones I linked to below that are similar to mine in this photo. This pair or this pair seem like they would also be fun without the tassels if you wanted to do that surgery at some time!

Being over 50 Doesn't mean Frumpy

Now if you’re wondering what the CR stands for on my t-shirt, then let me tell you!

It’s for the Colorado Rockies!! Not that Rob & I are the hugest baseball fans in the world, but you can’t live here and not cheer them on!! Besides, this is going to be their year—Rob’s sure of it!

Wearing a t-shirt for women over 50 yet look great!

Nancy’s (60+) Outfit: For Nancy’s outfit including fun bottoms, I pulled out her black & white floral pants!

I know that the thought of print pants used to be scary to me, but really they don’t make you look bigger! Anytime you wear a print, it takes all of the attention away from the shape beneath it. So if you don’t already have print trousers in your closet, then this might be the time to try them.

I found this pair that is a little more subtle, and then this pair that has a bigger print!! Wearing a t-shirt can feel very casual, but I believe that the other items you wear can transform that piece!! And having print pants on the bottom portion of your body will take all the attention away from the top portion!

Styling a t-shirt for women over 60

Of course, the t-shirt that Nancy is wearing is fabulous enough that maybe we should keep the attention on it instead?

This design was created by Anne M. Bray who has the blog, SpyGirl! You may recognized this graphic from the top of my blog! She characterized each of the 40+ bloggers for an artist’s exhibition last year. I was so, so excited to see the 3 of us in the lineup, so I purchased these t-shirts for each of us!!

Sixty Plus Women styling t-shirts

Another little tip for wearing your t-shirts to make them look better, is to make sure your shirt is fitted and not too long.

I think one of the problems with t-shirts are that they tend to be boxy. Although if you’ve been shopping lately, you’ll notice the more fitted t-shirts even in the sports league categories like mine above.

As for the length of your shirts, it really makes a huge difference to have them the right length!! Of course you can have them altered, but there’s also the trick of tying them up on the side. We’ve done this trick a couple of times. In fact, in one of the last graphic t-shirt series, we banded up the side of Nancy’s shirt then too!

60+ Woman and Wearing Fun Styles

To finish off Nancy’s outfit, we did add in matching earrings and some print shoes!

Did you even notice that Nancy had on some fun, print shoes with her print pants? I realize that mixing prints can feel “too out there” for some of you. That’s why we put together a series about beginning print mixing earlier this year!

I know that my first impulse with these print pants would be a solid colored shoe! And, of course, that would look fine. But I think that a colorful print shoes really adds more charm in this example! Like this pair or this pair would be super for the summer! Even if you prefer the solid colored shoes, then I would suggest a color instead of a neutral like these!

Charlotte’s (70+) Outfit: Leave it to my mom to pull out a skirt!! I think it’s the most fabulous thing that she still loves to wear skirts and dresses.

This skirt was a recent find at a thrift store, and I think you could wear it with any panel in front/back!! I tried to show all of the angles of it, so you can see how it was made!! And I would like to point out that there is some distressing on the skirt in one of the lower photos!! So if you think you’re too old for distressing, I’d say think again!!

70+ Women Wearing t-shirts

For the t-shirt, my mom picked her funny graphic one!!

I know graphic t-shirts could be another one of those items that as we get older, we think are inappropriate. But I’d argue that there are many that would be even more perfect for our age group. This one could be your sentiments exactly depending on your age! But if you don’t want it to be about your age then this shirt could be about your feelings!

If you like the theme t-shirts, then here’s one for the fourth of July! And this one would work for all summer long!

Women over 70 Dressing up a t-shirt

Since the skirt is very casual because of the jean and knit material, I had mom wear some flats!

I almost think it’s easier to find cute, casual flats in the summer. Especially if you don’t mind baring your toes!! The ankle strap on these would make them stay on well! Then again, if you like an easy to slip in and out of shoe, I think these would work!

However, if you’d rather keep your toes covered, yet still look summery, I found these for you!

Women over 70 with style & flair

I figured because there was so much going on with the skirt and then the shoes too, that we’d keep the accessories at a minimum.

So mom grabbed her small, colorful owl earrings for the earlobes. And then she put on these bracelets that are easily stack able, so you could wear one, two or all of them!!

  • I love graphic T-shirts, especially with a full skirt, but they work with pretty much anything. I’m a big fan of culottes, and have bought several pairs recently. Your mom’s outfit is fantastic – the T-shirt is so fun 🙂

      I used to feel like they were awfully silly…a grown women wearing a graphic t-shirt? But luckily either I’ve gotten smarter or I don’t care—ha ha!!
      XOXO

  • You girls always make me smile. Followed the link in Nancy’s description to your great graphic tee and skirt outfits. Oh, I want/need a tulle skirt in my life.
    And tassel earrings.
    And that’s all.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do wonder how I made it through 50 years without a skirt like this. I’m sure I would have thought it awfully silly before blogging, but for some reason they just makes me smile!!

  • A good idea – I tend to do this when wearing t shirts for charity events.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s so smart, because you need to wear their t-shirt, but you don’t want to look sloppy!!
      🙂

  • Linda Hobden

    Love those floral trousers ❤️

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Linda!! I’m not sure how much Nancy really likes them, but I think they are great!!
      XOXO

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for joining our Ageless Style linkup party.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      And thanks for hosting the party—it’s great to see women our age looking fabulous!!
      XOXO

  • I’m loving the outfit that your mother has on! That skirt is fu .

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t she a great role model—heck she’ll be 80 next year and still be more stylish than me!!
      😉

  • Stacey Waltzer

    I love these styles! They are fun and unique. I have flare cropped pants but they are made of soft material and I LOVE THEM!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m so glad to hear you say that about your flare cropped pants, Stacey!! I know so many women who won’t even try them, yet they can be so great on many of us!!
      🙂

  • 3littleredheads

    I LOVE Charlotte’s shirt! You all look fabulous!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t that a funny one?? She is a crack up!!
      🙂

  • Robin Michele Plous

    Great ideas Jodie! I have a plethora of solid t-shirts as my wardrobe is quite limited! I’m going to take a look at my closet and see how creative I can be!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Oh, you should Robin!! I bet you come up with a ton of ideas!!
      XOXO

  • Those culottes are perfect on you, Jodie! I really want a pair but haven’t quite found what I’m looking for yet. I’ve been wearing t-shirts quite often lately and culottes would be a great way to spruce them up (once it gets a bit warmer here). Good idea!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I know what you mean Lindsey—it’s like finding a great pair of jeans—it takes a ton of searching!!
      But I’ve worn these culottes with boots too! The nice part was the splash back from the slush didn’t get all the way up to them like it gets on my long pants!!
      You’re heading into winter now, right? It’s so crazy that you’re a world away!!
      XOXO

  • Margaretha Montagu

    I do not wear t-shirts much, but I must say, I love the colour of Nancy’s T, and design just as much!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I really don’t wear t-shirts that much either Margaretha!! But it’s amazing how many people do—at least here in Denver!!
      Nancy will so appreciate your compliment, so thanks so much!!
      🙂

  • sue

    Hi jodie I don’t really like wearing t-shirts but love three you have chosen. I usually wear shirts or sporty tops for my casual wear probably because I practically live in my workout wear 😊

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I rarely wear t-shirts in public either (except at the baseball game), but it is fun to try to make it more special!!
      XOXO

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    The shirts really look cute, especially the way they are styled! I noticed one of the skirts shown is called “the Webster!” Lol! I kind of live in tees of all styles, love the versatility!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That Webster website is one I just found—not a relative of yours or anything??
      XOXO

  • We went to a Rockies game when we visited Denver. I’m not a huge fan either, but it’s a fun event.
    I haven’t worn cropped pants in awhile because I feel they don’t flatter my short body, but they look great on you with your t-shirt! I may need to give them another try.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      How fun you were here, Lisa!! I do think that Coors Field is a great ball park!! Even though it’s one of the oldest in the country–crazy huh??!
      I just had one reader respond that the cropped flares actually looked good on her because they balances out her hips!! I think it’s worth it to try on a bunch and see—you might be surprised!! XOXO

  • Mummabstylish Mummabstylish

    I love all outfit choices, especially yours. Do love culottes atm, but hubby hates them! I recently bought a denim pair and have worn them twice so far – need to blog about them too. Hope you’re well Jodie. x Jacqui

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My husband doesn’t always love everything I bring home, at first!! I think after I wear things a couple of times, he sees how good they can be??
      Can’t wait to see your culottes, Jacqui!!
      XOXO

  • I love all your outfits, but I am just dying over Charlotte’s t-shirt. So cute!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t it hilarious?? She does have a sense of humor, my mother!! 🙂

  • Karen Anderson

    I love your culottes Jodie! I tried some on recently just on a whim and loved the way they looked. I would have never thought I could pull this off, but they were fantastic. I didn’t buy them because they were truly one size too small (and they only had the one size left), but when I put them on I knew they would work. Yours look great! I think with the flared legs that the length has to be spot on, and yours are! That’s a great outfit! I remember Nancy’s pants from another post and I really like those. They appear graphic rather than flora (to me, anyway), and for that reason it seems like you could wear them with a lot of different tops. I do like the way you knot up the sides of t-shirts that might otherwise be a little too long. It’ adds interest and I think is slimming at the same time. Your mom’s shirt is great! So is that skirt. When I saw it at first, I wondered if she made it but then saw it was thrifted. It really is so interesting and would be a focal point with many different tops. Like your mom, I’m a big fan of dresses and skirts. She looks very contemporary and fun-loving in this outfit! Typically when I wear a tee shirt it is with jeans or a very casual skirt, but if I HAD to wear one for an event, I’d probably have been the person to play it safe with khaki pants. Your post challenged me to think beyond playing it safe!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Welcome back from your trip, Karen!! Did you have a fabulous time???
      I know, I was totally surprised with these culottes too! I kept thinking of the old culottes from my younger days, but I think some of the newer materials make them so much better! And it’s so fun to try out different silhouettes!!
      I bet my mom could make a skirt like this—heck, I probably could even do it!! Isn’t it so interesting??
      XOXO

      • Karen Anderson

        Had a wonderful time! I stayed away from technology for a week except for taking pictures. It was kind of a nice break but I missed keeping up with things like this! Definitely difficult to come back to work!!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          It’s the best to get away for awhile—my husband would be in heaven if I wasn’t on my phone for even a day—ha ha!!

  • I just love the going platinum tee, so cute!

  • Michelle Leslie

    I’m totally in love with the skirts you shared from Anthropologie and The Webster. They are super cool. Although I’d probably end up losing the Anthropologie one to my daughter’s closet 😉

    • Jodie Filogomo

      LOL—that made me laugh!! You know it’s cool when the daughter steals it, right???
      XOXO

  • Laura

    Honestly I think so many people choose a fun top with jeans. So choosing a fun pair of bottoms can really draw the eye and make the whole outfit look more purposeful and put together! I love all the color and different fits you’ve tried here!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think that’s why I didn’t love graphic t-shirts at first Laura!! Because it was the epitome of casual!! But it has been fun trying to make them more interesting with other items!!
      XOXO

  • Judy Gramith

    What a unique theme for a post. I do enjoy wearing a blazer over a graphic t but you present some options I hadn’t considered.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think that’s my favorite way to wear a t-shirt period!! For some reason, I am a jacket lover, even now when I’m not working. It must be all of the What Not to Wear shows I watched–LOL!!
      XOXO

  • I love your Mom’s tee! I need this for my Mom.

      I was totally the same way Amy—at least until last year! Of course, I’ve always had a Rockies t-shirt since my hubbie is a baseball fan, but the other t-shirts always seemed so casual! I’m trying hard to never say never and figure out fun ways to wear them though!!

  • Jodie, I love your haircut! You ladies look fabulous, creative and beautiful. I love your links you’ve shown that are similar to your outfits! I may not be able to comment on your blog in the next couple of weeks, b/c we are moving and selling our house and I’m doing it while my husband is a 1000 miles away but I will try! I will be back when things settle down though and look forward to our passing comments!

  • donnanance

    Yes, great job on dressing up tees! Jodie, I love your sandals…the color is perfect. Funny thing you mentioned the flared crops…I seem to have several pair in my closet, courtesy of the thrift stores…ha! Guess the trend made it back around again… Nancy’s pants pull out the black in the tee-shirt graphic. The print flats are perfect. Love your mom’s tee…and the skirt is just plain fun. There is a graphic tee I have been searching for…”ooh la la”…saw one in a blog and of course it was not available. Enjoy your Monday…today is my oldest daugher’s 45th birthday…where did the time go!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Happiest of birthdays to your daughter, Donna!! It is so amazing how time just marches on whether we are ready or not!!
      There really are so fun t-shirts out there, and as much as I try to dress up—they just fit the bill some days!!
      I’m glad the flared crops are coming back in style—I think the silhouette is fabulous for many of us!! Maybe that means I need to go shopping…ha ha!!
      XOXO

  • I love the culottes and your new blush sandals are lovely. I agree that making sure you’ve got a nice fitted tee is key to pulling off a more polished look with a fun tee.

      Thanks Lydia!! I’m glad the manufacturer’s started making better fitting t-shirts too!!

  • You did a great job dressing up the t-shirts! Fun bottoms, great shoes, and accessories can make such a difference. I love your culottes! They look great, especially with your awesome sandals!

    Fun looks all around (your mom’s skirt is a terrific find!) I am fairly tall 5’7″ and average weight but didn’t like the wide leg cropped pants initially. Fast forward to knee replacement surgery and a second revision surgery and I couldn’t wear my beloved skinny jeans. I found a couple of denim pairs (in Madewell) and have grown to really like the look.
    By the way, I think your new haircut is wonderful on you.

      Isn’t if funny how a style we thought we’d hate, turns out to be great??? At least I’ve learned to be more open to different looks now!!
      Thanks for lovely comment, Rebecca!! XOXO

  • All of you look very chic in tees and cute bottoms. I was glad to learn of Anne Bray’s art and her sense of humor and I’m following COTD now.

    A short culottes story: Back when I was middle-aged and we still wore white uniforms, I found a nurse culottes outfit, shorter with a wider silhouette than yours. At home, I put on the culottes with the little vest over a plain white button down shirt. When I looked in the mirror I asked Lane, “Do I look like Dale Evans?” He agreed that I did. I wore the culottes and vest anyway, for a long, long time and nobody every noticed that their nurse was really Roy Rogers’ sidekick.

      It looks like I even get to meet Anne, when we travel out to LA for a Fierce 50 photo shoot at the end of the month!! I can’t wait to meet her—she is so creative!!
      And I love that story about Dale Evans—I’m surprised that more people didn’t notice the similarity—but then again, they might have been concerned about their health instead??

    Jodie,
    After reading this post, I realized that my wardrobe is sorely missing “fun bottoms”. I tend to go with plain pants and pattern on top, but maybe I need to switch it up some and let my bottom have some fun as well 🙂
    Blessings,

      I remember thinking that I wouldn’t want a print on the bottom half of my body—until I tried it! I actually think it’s a better camouflage for anything I’m trying to hide!! Besides, then I get to see them more and smile when I look down! I hardly see my shirt unless I look in the mirror!! 🙂
