I’m a big t-shirt and jeans kind of gal, but I’m not normally a fan of tees with sayings on them. It can come off as cheesy and immature. Sorry to all of those who wear them, but to me, they’re better off as Instagram comments than on your clothes.

At the same time, Milly gave me this tee and I surprisingly couldn’t resist.

I love wearing it to brunch on a Sunday, as I did here when I was in Philly this past weekend, because not only is it a funny statement when you’re trying to wash away the previous night with a large cup of coffee, but it’s just an effortlessly fashionable top. It also happens to be soft and comfy which are bonuses, but can look more chic than your average tee when done right.

Here are my tips to making your tee more fashionista-ready:

1. Dress up your tee with tailored pieces like a blazer, dress pants, or tucked into a skirt.

2. Roll the sleeves for that cool girl look.

3. Give it a messy tuck by tucking in the front and pulling out the sides.

Now you’ll be sayiing, “sorry I’m not sorry,” as you wear your tee to events you wouldn’t have otherwise.
