Win $500 (And Look Great Doing It)

April 11, 2014
13391303575_d1b2f39100_z Behold the mighty t-shirt. Like a great pair of jeans, the right t-shirt might be your closet's MVP--Most Versatile Piece. We're big fans of the J. Crew Teach For America tee because not only does it look great, but one hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of this tee will be donated to Teach For America. We've put together some of our favorite ways for guys and girls to wear the shirt, so you can show it off around town no matter what the occasion.


Easy Breezy Traveler // Work-life balance is the theme of this pairing. Whether you're headed to a tropical destination or shopping the farmers market on Sunday, add a straw fedora and a flowy maxi skirt for an instantly relaxed style. Or layer your J. Crew tee with an unbuttoned flannel and distressed denim after school or on the weekends.


Date Night // With your favorite pair of denim and subtle accessories, your J. Crew tee can be the perfect look for a night out on the town or a matinee movie. Sport a long-sleeve t-shirt underneath or a button-down cardigan on top for crisp spring evenings.


Snappy Casual // Whether you pair this tee with a fitted blazer and jeans or skinny suspenders and khakis, you'll be sure to add the right snappy flair for denim Fridays or PD Saturdays. Add flats or tortoise-shell glasses for small details to jazz up your look for a sleek, pulled-together look.


After-School Style // Merge your hobbies with your work and represent your personal style at the same time. Paired with board shorts or checker-board slip-on sneakers, you can instantly turn your love for school supplies and students into Saturday long-boarding apparel, or whatever hobbies you choose to engage in after lesson planning.


Actively Stylish // Your J. Crew tee can even be sported on your most active adventures. Layer it with a thermal and button-down vest for a weekend outdoors or with athletic shorts for a long run or trip to the gym. Its light fabric and stylish print will be sure to adapt to any of your everyday adventures.
