The classic plain white t-shirt doesn’t get enough credit for its stylish simplicity. On a warm summer day, what’s a better fit than a soft, breezy t-shirt that radiates summer vibes? Maybe we’re all just out of ideas for how to style a plain white t-shirt. If the jeans and tee combo sounds too dull for your taste, consider these alternative ways to style your summer tees:
Striped Cotton or Linen Pants
Cotton and linen are the favorite fabrics of summer. If you’re going to wear pants at any point this season, choose a pair that are made from one of these materials. You should also pick up ones that are blue and white striped, since this look is ultra beachy and makes the perfect match for a plain white t-shirt. Add a pair of sandals, and you’ll be boardwalk ready in no time!
High Waisted Shorts
It’s not always easy to make shorts look classy, but ones that are high waisted do the job very well, especially in neutral colors. The biggest advantage of pairing a white t-shirt with high waisted shorts is that you can choose shorts of any color and you’ll have a winning outfit on your hands. Beige, army green, blue jean...white complements and contrasts with them all. To shake up your look, tuck your shirt into your shorts before you head out, or throw a cardigan over the top that stops an inch or two above the hem of your shorts.
T-shirts and pencil skirts are the odd couple that somehow work harmoniously together. The combination of casual from the shirt and formal from the skirt creates an outfit that balances somewhere in between, not overdressed but certainly not underdressed either. Pair a white t-shirt with a colorful patterned pencil skirt for an outfit that’s worthy of both the office, and after-work drinks.
It’s time to stop looking down on plain. A plain white t-shirt is like a blank canvas that’s ready to fit in wherever it’s needed. It can go from running errands, to meetings with the boss, to drinks with friends, all without skipping a beat. It’s all about what you wear with it!
