Style Tips from Guest Blogger & Stylist Nicole Nowacki

Recently I had the pleasure of styling a couple of Dak & Co tops at one of Fargo‘s quaint little boutiques Onyx and Pearl. What I love about Dak & Co is that they have made versatile shirts that can be worn a variety of ways. Usually you see a t-shirt and you automatically think to pair it with jeans or shorts. That seems to be the signature look here in the Midwest, however it doesn’t have to be. Now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with this style, but if you want to give your t-shirt collection a jump start keep reading!!

Dressing up the tee shirt & jeans look

I have always been one that loves to stand out from the crowd. So even if I throw a t-shirt on I make sure I have a statement piece to accompany it. For example bold jewelry, a hat or scarf, even a jacket. In regards to bottoms, don’t ever be afraid of wearing ANYTHING that isn’t denim. Try simple on the top and flare on the bottom. Skirts, flare legged or cropped pants with colored boots or heels are a favorite go to. Stepping inside Onyx and Pearl I instantly got that bohemian vibe, a distinguished warmth that made me think of the beach on a warm summer day. Plenty of neutral colors and patterns flood the store, that can create a casual or dressy outfit. This was the perfect place for me to pair Dak & Co’s line without a doubt. My only heads up is that I have found you usually need to size up with the pieces as they tend to run smaller than normal. None the less, I had fun uniting t-shirts with something other than jeans!!!

A few of my favorite Dak & Co looks

Go with the Flow top

The Dak&Co tops are extremely comfortable, are found in multiple styles, and are all accompanied with their signature logos. They run true to size, so depending on the look you want to achieve you may want to size up. One of my favorite pieces is the Go with the Flow Luxe Top. This is a piece I will possibly buy up two sizes to achieve that off the shoulder casualness. It’s a perfect piece to throw over a halter dress or pant piece. It can easily be worn over layers or even under vest. Accent with a long scarf to keep the easy flowing mood of the look going. If your going to go bigger on top, I would suggest sliming your bottoms so you don’t look like a box. This can be done with a pencil skirt, or fitted pants.

Bombshell Mock Neck

My second Dak&Co piece is the Bombshell Logo tank. You would be surprised how this top can be dressed up! Throw them on with some palazzo pants, a flowing long skirt or even some leather pants and you are ready for a night out. Polish this look with gold statement earrings or necklace. I also must say the clean cut appearance of this t-shirt is also sharp under a blazer making it perfect for the office!

Dak & Co Three Quarter Sleeve Shop this look: Classic Rocker Tee: Dak & Co, Olivia Overalls: Onyx + Pearl

The Classic Rocker tee is adorable under some over-all’s. This is a sporty looking top that is probably best paired with denim jeans or shorts. To spice up the look try having fun with with your accessories. This T is so cute with a lil side knot and some high-waisted distressed denim. If weather permits throw a bomber jacket or duster over it!
