What to Wear With a Plain White T-Shirt


The most classic way to wear a white T-shirt is with your favorite pair of jeans. Whether they’re black or blue, skinny or shorts, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this combo. Pair them with flats or sandals in the summer or a great pair of boots in the winter. To infuse your outfit with a little bit of your personality, accessorize with your favorite piece: a colorful scarf, an armful of bangles, a killer bag — or all three!


Wear a white tee to the gym. Layer a too-big tee with a brightly colored tank top and your favorite yoga pants one day, and wear a fitted tee with a tennis skirt the next. Or throw a long T-shirt over your bathing suit as a coverup after a swim. For a dance class, pair a white tee with your comfiest pair of leggings.


You can absolutely wear a plain old white T-shirt to the office, no matter where you work. In a conservative setting, wear your comfiest white tee with a pencil skirt and cardigan. If your job has a more laid-back vibe, wear it by itself with a flowy skirt or a pair of dress pants. Looking to add more visual interest? Add a vest or a silk flower corsage.


Believe it or not, a white T-shirt can even be dressed up for a formal occasion. When paired with tuxedo pants or a pretty skirt, all you need is some fabulous accessories to kick your look up a notch. By adding glittering jewelry and a killer pair of heels, you’ll ensure that no one even thinks twice about your T-shirt.
