Basic White Tee


It's such a classic American staple that has been around for many years and has remained an important piece as fashion has evolved. When it comes to the white tee, there are countless ways to wear it. There are now many versions of the basic white tee and I selected a slightly dressier version to feature in this post.

T-shirts have come a long way from the three-packs that you can buy at Wal-Mart. While a t-shirt is to jeans like fries are to burgers, a t-shirt can also be worn to the office. If you pick the right fabric (think silk or another luxe-type fabric) and add a pretty pencil skirt, your outfit will be 9-to-5 appropriate.

If pencil skirts aren't your thing, maybe you could go for a laid-back, all-white ensemble (with pops of color, of course). There is something so chic about an all-white look, and adding color in your accessories keeps it appropriate for spring and summer. Leave the heels at home and opt for cute flats.

There is something so chic about these pastel pants. The pleating in the front and the waistline give this pair of trousers a face lift. Add some cut-out heels, a basic tote, and simple jewelry, and you've got an easy, chic look.

  11. i have a very similar pencil skirt from (where else) j. crew and it is probably the most solid staple in my spring/summer work wardrobe. white short sleeves and black long sleeves are so essential in my life!

  27. I LOVE this style guide, Amy! It's such an amazing idea to style a classic white tee in different ways. Can you believe I currently have zero white tees in my closet? Shocking, I know :) I'm planning to remedy that on my next shopping trip :) I love the first style best!
