3 Ways To Update Your Plain White T-Shirt

The plain white tee is the most versatile and important item in any wardrobe. Once you discover the right cut and color - bright white is best for olive skinned girls and soft beige works for those with a more pale complexion, a crew neck is good for a small bust whereas a v neck suits more curvy shapes, then you can start to play around with styling options.


Try these 3 tips to update your plain white tee…

1. A statement necklace. Adding some embellishment to the neck can dress up a simple white tee and make it night, corporate or event appropriate instantly. The trick is to find a crew neck tee – having fabric sitting behind the statement necklace brings it too life whereas a v neck or scoop neck tee can ruin the effect.

2. A slogan. A simple word in red print brings a white tee to life like nothing else. Go retro “Cocoa Cola”, a nod to simpler times with a “Levi’s” slogan or something quirky and funny. Whatever you select, go hard on the denim to work this look. Blue, red & white is oh-so-right.

3. Layer with a corset or cami. Go couture-esque and add a corset over your white tee. This look has been big for the last few seasons but that doesn’t mean you need to quit this trend just yet. To make it fresh, consider a denim version and layer with a light trench. To go in a different direction and channel the 90’s, add a black camisole with a little lace detail over your shirt.
