The basic white tee, clean and simple, is a staple and essential to every wardrobe! It can be styled in so many ways, dress it up, dress it down, so easy!! The hardest part of styling the perfect white tee, is finding the perfect white tee!!
I’ve listed my top 3 favorite tees and why I love them!!
- Women’s Short Sleeve Casual T-Shirt – A New Day – Target
This tee is very soft and not see through (that’s the most important in my eyes). It is long enough to tuck in or tie up and I love the crew neck line. The best part about this tee is that it is $5. White tees don’t stay white forever and alot of tees tend to lose their shape quick, but for $5, you can stock up for the year!!
2. Northside Vintage Tee – Madewell
This white tee is a must have!! The quality is incredible and the fit is perfection!! It is a cotton crewneck that is slightly shorter body length, but tighter fit, so you can tuck it in or pair it with skirts. The price point is still very good for the quality at $16. Available on madewell.com or at Nordstrom.
3. The Pocket Tee – ZSupply -Boutique On Thirty
The absolute best white tee I have found is the most expensive, but the quality is exceptional. I have washed and dried this tee so many times and it does not lose it’s fit or comfort. It is made with their signature burnout jersey material for the ultimate softness!! The Pocket Tee from ZSupply features a v-neckline and small breast pocket. It is long enough to tuck in or tie up. It is available through my Boutique or ZSupply!
Now that you have your tee, it is so easy to style. Start with the basics and then just add and change. My favorite looks for this Fall are:
1. Pair with a skirt
This is the easiest way to dress up a simple tee in general, but you can wear virtually any skirt with a white tee. Short, long, straight, pleated, the options are endless. Depending on the skirt, I like a tight fit tucked in or a loose fit tied up. I love to change up my shoes as well to change the look. A tee and skirt can be very dressy with heels or casual with sneakers.
2. Throw on a jacket or blazer
Lounging around in your tee and jeans, but want to finish the look for running errands? Add a jean jacket or your favorite fall blazer and it immediately goes from casual to finished. You can even throw on a pointed flat or booties to dress it up. Patterned jackets can be hard to style, because it can just all be too much, but a simple white tee keeps the attention on the jacket!
3. Pair it with cute leggings or joggers
No one ever said you have to be dressed up all the time!! Sometimes some of my favorite looks come from my leggings and cute joggers. A white tee can change the look of your leggings from bummy to cute! (Although there is nothing wrong with a bummy look either)!
4. Keep it simple with jeans and add accessories
Again, sometimes simple is everything. You can change the look of your outfit simply by changing your shoes and adding statement jewelry pieces or a cute hat. It’s so fun to add a pop of color to your outfit with a fun shoe or colorful necklace. I love a good colorful flat, skinny jeans, white tee, and a necklace!! You can’t go wrong!
5. Cardigan, cardigan, cardigan
Finally, my favorite way to wear a white tee is with a cardigan!! You can tuck it in, tie it up, wear it out and it all looks good! A great cardigan will complete any outfit with a white tee! Add some cute shoes and you are set for day or evening.
Like I said, styling the white tee is the easy part, you can’t go wrong!! So if you don’t have one go grab one or two or maybe even three because you can wear it different everyday!
