How to Dress Up a Basic T-Shirt
T-shirts are the easiest way to get dressed in the morning, but they can also be a little boring. So here are some ways that you can dress up your basic white tee for each season:
With a statement necklace.
A statement necklace can take an otherwise plain outfit and make it look more interesting. However, this is a tricky look to pull off: if you add too many accessories with your T-shirt, you’ll end up looking like a Christmas tree. Instead of piling on all of the accessories in your closet, focus on just one or two pieces that really speak to the outfit—a pop of color in a basic black outfit or a bold pendant when paired with jeans and sneakers will do just fine.
Make sure that each added piece complements the others; this means matching colors and textures—if you’re going for an edgy vibe, go for spikes rather than flowers; if you want to play up femininity, don’t pair that metallic cuff bracelet with an ultra-feminine dress!
With high-waisted jeans and heels.
A basic white t-shirt is a great piece to have in your wardrobe, but it can get old fast. You can easily dress up this basic shirt by pairing it with high-waisted jeans and heels. Heels will elongate your legs, which will make you appear taller and more elegant. Jeans and heels also look great when worn with different top styles - try pairing them with a sleek blazer for work or a cute top for an evening out on the town!
Underneath a blazer.
This is a great option for days when you need to look a bit more polished than usual. It's easy to do and works well with almost any basic tee shirt.
Choose a blazer that matches the color of your tee shirt (or at least has similar tones). You can wear it over or under your top—it really depends on how much coverage you want. A button-down shirt may seem like an obvious choice, but there are other options out there!
If you're going to go bold with your blazer, make sure it's not too bold. Try something subtle like browns or blues if you want to give off an air of sophistication without going overboard!
This outfit also works well when worn as part of corporate casual attire at work; just add some slacks and loafers instead of shorts and sneakers!
Tucked into a skirt.
Tucking in a T-shirt is a classic look, and it will never go out of style. Tuck your favorite tee into a pencil skirt for an elegant, polished look that's perfect for work or play.
Here's how to tuck in a tee:
Pull the shirt over your head so that the back seam of your shirt isn't showing.
Straighten out any wrinkles on both sides of your torso with both hands before pulling down from underarm to waist.
Smooth out all wrinkles, paying special attention to any creases around the bust area and around arms (you can use hand motions here).
Now that you've got it tucked in nicely, let's find some outfits!
With a crop top over it.
If you want to keep things simple and still look put together, try wearing a crop top over your T-shirt. Crop tops are great for showing off your belly and can be worn under blazers or over skirts. They can also be paired with statement necklaces for added flair.
Over a maxi dress or skirt.
If you’re looking to add a little bit of edge to your look, a maxi dress or skirt is the perfect way to do it. It has a feminine vibe, but it can still be edgy and cool with the right accessories. Here are some ways to incorporate this style into your wardrobe:
Over a t-shirt.
This method is perfect for hot days when you don’t want something heavy on top of your body but still want an elevated look and feel. Just grab an oversized tee that has interesting details like frayed edges or distressing and pair with leather sandals for an effortlessly cool look!
With a long vest.
The vest is the best way to dress up a plain tee. Wear it over a dress, or pair it with jeans or shorts and heels. Long vests also work well during the winter when you want to keep your upper legs warm without covering your entire body in bulky layers. You can even wear them with pants! They’re versatile and easy to pair with other pieces of clothing, which means they’re perfect for layering under jackets on those chilly spring days when you need something light but still warm enough to keep you cozy all day long.
Sequins are fun, but you need to wear them with the right outfit. They don't look good on a white tee! That's too much shine and not enough contrast. Instead, match your sequin top with something dark so that it pops out.
Here are some ideas:
A black t-shirt paired with a red or blue sequin skirt (or pants).
A colored t-shirt paired with a long sleeved black top and jeans of any color (except gray).
A plain colored t-shirt (i.e., not white) under your favorite long sleeved button down shirt.
A basic white tee can be worn many different ways!
A basic white tee can be worn many different ways! It’s a great base for other outfits and an easy way to get dressed. It can be worn with any color pants, so it’s a go-to piece that you can wear at any time of the year.
You don’t have to think about what shoes or accessories to wear with your white tee—you can choose whatever you want! If you feel like dressing up your outfit, try one of these tips:
Wear a belt around your waist. This will draw attention away from your midsection and balance out the whole look.
Wear high heels instead of flats or sneakers if you want something more formal with jeans or leggings (but still casual!). This will make everything seem more put-together than wearing just flats would give off and give people another reason why they should take a second glance at their surroundings instead of just looking at their computers like always when they go home after work/school/etcetera...
There are so many different ways to style a plain white tee. You can wear it with a simple cardigan or vest, or pair it with an oversized blazer and high heels for a night out on the town. Just remember that the most important thing is to have fun with it!
