A good, classic white tee is a definite closet staple of mine!
Simple, yes. ( Well, ‘boring’ if you ask my sister…) But effortless style is the name of my fashion game. I have already said it…but as a Mom, I am not willing to sacrifice style for function. That being said, a white tee is a piece that can easily be dressed up or down.
Whether you’re traveling, or not, a white tee can be worn on its own, under a statement jacket or paired with a sassy pair of shoes to make it anything but basic!
I have styled one of my favorite v-neck t-shirts from z-supply (which I also own in black) three different ways. I will break down each look for you and let you know where I’d be wearing each style.
This outfit pretty much speaks for itself. It’s a ‘I only have 5 minutes to get ready‘ kind of look, but it can take you from drop-off duty (with the kids), to errands and brunch all before you’re due back for pick-up duty! This is also the classic ‘off-duty’ look. I would wear this outfit for a casual weekend at home and even pack it as a day outfit while out of town. The mules (another current fave of mine) definitely add something ‘extra’ to this outfit, that sneakers or even a summer sandal don’t. I think the mules are a little more sophisticated, and I love that the heel is low, but thick; it makes the shoes super functional and comfortable!
2. BUSINESS CASUAL
Same tee, totally different look. I am a lover of a good pair of denim shorts. Sometimes, white tee’s and denim shorts feel too ‘camp counselor-ish’, ya know?! Throwing on an oversized blazer or relaxed jacket is an easy way to still achieve an effortless look while adding a little ‘punch’ to your outfit. What I love about adding a jacket is that, when you take it off, you are still left with a simple outfit, suitable for any daily occasion.
While this outfit would also look cute with a classic, white sneaker, I liked it with the same white mules. It just ties the outfit elements together. Adding accessories can also give some quick pizzazz! Think belts…earrings…layered necklaces…ankle bracelets. I would wear this outfit to a girls’ brunch, for sure!
3. DRESSED UP
Black denim can really dress up any tee! Wearing the white tee with black denim, creates a whole new look, suitable for a casual night out. I love black denim for so many reasons, but especially because you can throw on a cute denim jacket without worrying if the denim colors clash! I love a slide sandal with these jeans because of the slit in the front. This outfit can go from day-to-night with a simple change of a shoe. Sneakers for day…slide sandals for night.
I would wear this outfit for a casual weekday dinner with my hubby!
Outfits that are simple, clean, easy and cute! Need I say more?!
