When it comes to your wardrobe, there are a few important pieces that everyone should have, regardless of gender, style, body type, etc. They are the building blocks of your closet, if you will.

One of those pieces being a crips white t-shirt. (Oh, and when I say a white t-shirt, I mean a clean white t-shirt, not the one that has been worn anywhere and everywhere with the stains to prove it!)

*Tip* Put an uncoated aspirin tablet in the wash when doing your whites to keep them looking bright!

A white t-shirt is a staple for every closet because, white is the ultimate neutral and goes with just about everything. It is quite literally a basic, a blank slate. This makes it a little bit easier when you’re staring at your closet wondering what to wear. If you have a base to start with, you can then add on to the look by being a bit bolder with the other pieces of your outfit!. Style it with a standout piece like a printed pant or jacket and you create a more balanced look.

One of my favorite ways to wear a white tee is with a lighter wash jean. It’s a classic look that is effortlessly chic and never goes out of style. The secret to making it looking so good, that’s not really that much of a secret, is to steam or iron the shirt before you wear it.  If you just throw on a wrinkled t shirt, it won’t have the same effect. It will look more effortless than chic.

If you’re really wanting to ELEVATE the look, switch out your sneakers or flats with a stiletto or your go to heels, and that goes for the guys as well, you can wear a heeled boot or even loafers to up your t-shirt game. If those aren’t your jam, but why not give it a try, you can also pair it with white sneakers like Converse or Vans if you’d like.

The possibilities are endless really! The complete lack of color allows you to stretch your creative muscles and truly express yourself any way you want to.
