The simple white tee has been synonymous with the cool and casual L.A. vibe. But who says this side of the world can’t follow suit? Spring and summer are around the corner, which calls for your favourite lightweight tee. If you’re too lazy to style an outfit, the easiest thing to do is to wear a bright shade of lipstick and run out of the house.

If you really want to make an effort, however, here are a few styling tips for your white tee - day and at night | It’s a no-brainer that denims are the easiest, but why not be a little different and go for a pair you might not immediately think of. Our favourite denims, with a white tee, are distressed denim or a pair of high-waist jeans. Sometimes, a printed pair looks great too. To make the look more put together, tuck the tee in, and wear a belt.

Skirts! We love all types. The maxi, midi and mini work well with a white tee. We pick a fully sequined skirt, of any length, to ramp up the whole ensemble. If you don’t want to be too dressy, opt for a maxi with a side or front slit.

Other bottoms that can be worn with a white tee are anything made of leather. Shorts, trousers, skirts – all look chic.

Let’s talk about what you can wear over the white tee. You have options of shirts, jackets, blazers, and even accessories. Our personal favourite is wearing a denim shirt over a white tee with black leggings. Looking for some edge? Take out your favourite leather jacket! However if you want something more formal and dressy, try out a blazer – either a printed or a solid coloured one.

Lastly, accessories do wonders to a plain white tee. You can either go all out with something big and chunky or use something simple like dainty layered necklaces, which are trending this season.

A white tee is a mandatory wardrobe piece. One can literally pair it with absolutely everything for most occasions. So don’t underestimate this handy basic.
