3 Totally Non-Boring Ways to Wear a White T-Shirt

When it comes to basics, few pieces are as “absolutely must have, cannot live without,” as the basic white tee. Whether it’s V-necked, long sleeved, worn in or crisp and brand new, it’s pretty safe to say we all have a go-to white tee for days when we need to simply throw something on. Luckily, it’s a super chic piece too! Next time you pull out your white tee, try making it the star of the show in one of these effortless outfit ideas.

1. Back to basics



Zara jacket



Topshop cuffed jeans



Converse hi top




There’s possibly no better outfit for looking classic, edgy and and still totally effortless all at the same time than a leather jacket and white tee. For a casual day style your rocker-esque pairing with your favorite pair of distressed jeans; we love a classic straight leg with this look! A giant carry-all in a color like burgundy will finish off the look with some eye-catching color.

2. Polish it up



Glamorous pink jacket



Black shorts





Believe it or not, your most worn-in white tee can be styled to look just as polished as your pencil skirt. To get the look, try throwing a sleeveless blazer on top—it has the sophisticated vibes of a blazer, but is a little more off-duty-appropriate. A floaty, loose pair of shorts in leather and mid-height mules add just the perfect amount of edge... and nothing gives ladylike and tough vibes like a giant pearl cuff.

3. Just a bit boho


Slouchy white tee







For the perfect mix of free spirit and edgy rocker, try switching out your go-to peasant blouse for t-shirt! It adds contrast to a beaded skirt and keeps the look fresh. Use your mini skirt to show off black suede ankle booties. To accessorize, a quilted bag and trendy rounded sunglasses are unexpected choices that still totally work.
