How to Style a White Tee + How to Choose a Good One

Hey, there!  Today, I am going to show you how to style a white tee.  I have never had a white tee that I have loved and worn as much as this one.  (Side note:  It was under 10 dollars at TJ Maxx!!)  It got me through spring and summer and will certainly carry me through the rest of the year and beyond.  I will wear it until it’s full of fuzzies and stains.

What makes this white tee so special?  Its rounded v-neck, the relaxed cut, the length, the sleeves, and the wrinkle-free material- 50% polyester, 50% rayon.

A white tee always looks fabulous with a pair of jeans.  You really cannot go wrong when you style it this way.  It’s simple, classic, and chic.  Check out this style with bootcut jeans and some jewelry.  I just let the tee be itself here.  What’s your favorite way to wear a white tee?

Since this look is so classic and doesn’t many distractions, I added a bold lip to top off the look.  I also tucked the tee in one small spot at the front of the hip to show you how to add intrigue and dimension.

In the next look, I’ve knotted the tee on the side.  When doing this yourself, don’t knot it all the way on the side, or it will look awkward and unflattering, and your arm will hit it all day.  Since this tee is somewhat loose and long, I was able to grab two handfuls of material and tie it the traditional way.  It took me a couple of times to get it just right, but once I did, the knot stayed put for the entire day.  Here, I’ve paired the white tee with a patterned maxi skirt.  how-to-style-a-white-tee-knottedLuLaRoe Magenta Maxi Skirt

If you are interested in this skirt or a skirt like it, it is super comfortable.  Check out this post for more information on the brand!

Another idea for styling a white tee is to pair it with funky shorts (or pants) and create an athleisure look, like the one below.  And if you notice, I am wearing the same necklace in every one of these looks.  Long necklaces fit well with the neckline.  Mine is by Lucky Brand (from TJ Maxx), but check out this gorgeous fair trade necklace from Redemption Market below.

Since fall is here, it’s the perfect time to layer the white tee with denim jackets, army jackets, and cardigans.  Try topping your tee with a chunky knit scarf, too.  Pile on the accessories!

That’s what’s up in style today.  Do you have a favorite white tee?  How do you like to style it?  Please comment below!
