It goes without saying that a plain white t-shirt is a staple in anybody’s closet. Today I’m going to introduce three stylish ways to wear the ultimate wardrobe staple.

* Styling Tip #1: Mix with vivid colors and wild prints
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with bright colors and wild prints—and a plain white t-shirt is the perfect complement to colorful and printed bottoms. Style them with everything from neon colored shorts to floral and geometric printed skirts. For a casual brunch date, ditch your everyday denim shorts and opt for a wildly-printed balloon skirt featuring oversized florals. Team up with a simple white tee and a pair of ballerina flats and you have a lovely look.

* Styling Tip #2: Wear with formal pieces
The classic and crisp look of a white tee and denim will never go out of style—but this season, try wearing the white t-shirt with formal pieces for an entirely different look. As consistently seen on the runways, there is something incredibly chic about a casual white tee mixed and matched with formal items such as a midi-length pencil skirt or a pair of high-waisted loose slacks. For the office, substitute a white tee for where you would normally do buttondowns and give your style a bit of an edge. Throw a chic blazer over the simple white tee and blazer combo and put together a polished and professional look.

* Styling Tip #3: Wear it accessorized
Lastly, a white tee can be dressed up by accessorizing! To update your outfit, experiment with lots of different shoe options available this season. A pair of embellished sneakers and beaded sandals will certainly give your plain white tee a sprinkle of uniqueness and fun. In addition, chunky bracelets, beaded watches, statement necklaces, and bold earrings are a must-have in any summer wardrobe. For casual outings, team up the little white tee with a pair of high-waisted, pink wide-leg pants and complete the outfit with wedge heels. Mix and match watches, bracelets, and necklaces for a look that is extremely laid back yet sleek and stylish.

Rock a white tee now and stay stylish!
