A good white tee is the definition of a wardrobe essential. Whether your favorite is a little cropped, full length, or a tight, little baby tee, the limit to the ways you can style it truly doesn’t exist. We’re here to break the stigma that a white-tee outfit has to be boring with some brand-new ways to style yours this season.
Sure, a jeans-and-a-white-tee outfit is never a bad choice, but there are ways to style your white tee that will make it feel like the star of your look, rather than the default that you grabbed out of your closet at the last second while getting dressed.
Whether you’re heading to the office, going out to get drinks with your friends, or anything in-between, these 7 outfits will keep your white tee feeling fresh, fun, and anything but boring.
With a chunky belt and trousers
When in a pinch, add a cinch. A big, chunky belt contrasts oh-so nicely with a crisp white tee, and when paired with high-waisted trousers, the cinched-in waist is complimented to perfection. Pair it with whatever shoe your heart desires, and you’re good to go.
With a long denim skirt
It’s true, the denim maxi skirt is back. What better to style it than with a white tee? It keeps the look simple, and allows the skirt to do all the talking—which is exactly what you want with a piece this cool.
With breezy linen pants
When the weather starts to warm up, one of the most exciting seasonal pieces to reach for is a good pair of linen pants. For an effortless, comfortable look, your white tee and sneakers are a foolproof combo.
With a cozy cardigan
A cardigan and white tee is a combo as classic as PB&J. Take the look up a notch by layering on accessories and completing it with a trendy oversized tote.
With trousers and a blazer
There’s something so sleek about a black blazer, white tee, and pair of trousers. It screams “cool-girl” in the best way, and can work for your off-duty and office days alike.
With a leather blazer
By now, we’ve most likely all have a leather blazer in our closet, and they’re not just for fancy occasions or GNOs. A leather blazer, white tee, and your favorite denim is a *chef’s kiss* combo that can take you from the office straight to post-work happy hour.
