5 Ways to Rock your Basic White Tee for Spring

Rock your Basic White Tee

The basic white T-shirt is a staple in any wardrobe. Worn alone or layered with other pieces, this essential never goes out of style. But despite its must-have status, the simple tee can often start to feel a bit stale. Now that spring has arrived, it’s the perfect time to give your fashion favorites a boost for the new season. Here are five tips for breathing new life into your basic white tee.

With Leather Pants

When it comes to dressing for a night out, you don’t necessarily have to abandon your white tee for a silk blouse. By pairing this essential with elevated pieces, your outfit will be evening appropriate in no time. Refinery29 suggests matching your basic tee with leather pants and caged high heeled sandals for a look with some edge. Finish with a structured neutral bag and a smoky eye or bold red lip and you’ll be set for a night out.


Under A Dress

From flowy maxis to flirty strapless numbers to the season’s must-have slip style, dresses become key wardrobe pieces as the weather warms up. For an unexpected take on the spring and summer staple, wear a basic white tee underneath your favorite sundress. As an added bonus, this styling trick works especially well for days when a hint of winter’s chill still lingers.

With Cut Offs and Boots

Nothing says warm weather like rocking a pair of denim cut-offs. This season, pair your favorites with a loosely tucked white tee and ankle boots. A flat Chelsea style in a neutral hue makes for a laid-back and comfortable choice for weekend afternoons. To take the look to the next level, follow Lyst’s advice and up the glamour factor with a wedged or heeled option. Finish your ensemble with a fringed vest and cash in on the current obsession with all things ’70s-inspired.

Revealing a Peek of Lace

Lingerie-inspired styles are all over the spring runways, but that doesn’t mean you have to bare it all to embrace this particular trend. For a look that is equal parts sexy and sweet, opt for a feminine lace bralette worn underneath your basic white tee. Oversized, off the shoulder silhouettes or loose tank styles work best for revealing just a peek of the provocative lace.

With a Graphic Skirt & Blazer

If you think a basic white tee is too casual for the office, think again. When paired with the right pieces, the wardrobe staple can look polished, chic, and above all, work appropriate. Wear it with a pencil skirt and fitted blazer, then finish with neutral flats or pumps for an effortless weekday ensemble. To incorporate a hot spring trend, opt for a skirt that features a bold print (like oversized florals) or an eye-catching graphic pattern. Stripes are a timeless yet on-trend choice, and prove to be surprisingly easy to wear. Borrow a tip from Marie Claire and go with a vertical pattern, which can make you look taller and slimmer.
