How to Glam Up Your Basic White Shirt
We love a white shirt. This fashion staple is a must in every girl's closet and goes with just about anything — from casual jeans to feminine cullotes to pencil skirts and even summer shorts. A white shirt is clean, sharp and the perfect blank canvas for any style a person wants to achieve. But how about glamming it up for those extra-glitzy events? Here are some of the fashionably fantastic styles you can come up with using a basic tee.
Pair it with a maxi. A crisp white shirt and a flowy maxi; what's not to like? This combination is effortlessly elegant, creating a laidback, comfortable look that’s easy to wear at just about any occasion. Our suggestion? Pair it with a maxi for a nice glimmer. Alternatively, take it up a notch by matching it with an ethereal tulle ball skirt. Accessorize with a chunky necklace and finish off with a pair of strappy sandals or edgy stilettos.
Suit up. Ever wondered how it feels to look like a fashion editor? Now you can. Pick a smart, sharp suit – either a nice black or navy blue one for corporate events, or a happier hue, like rose or pastel blue for more casual occasions. For an extra feminine flair, slip on a pair of stilettos or take the look in a masculine direction with a pair of metallic loafers. And when you’re really in the mood for some androgynous drama, tie your hair in a sleek ponytail.
Leather jackets, ladies. Stay cool, not cold. After you slip on a white shirt, grab a black biker jacket and spice it up with rockstar flair. Complete the look with your favorite boots to ward off the winter chill with some hot style. Other jackets to try with your fave white tee: jewel-toned bombers or embellished blazers.
Slip into a dress. Satin camisoles took the spotlight in the final months of 2016, and this trend isn’t going anywhere — yet. Exude some 90s soul by pairing your white shirt with an ankle-length flowy slip dress and finish off with a printed choker. Accessorize with chunky cuffs and a bracelet and pull it all together with a pair of rugged boots.
Ravishing ribbons. Your basic white tee doesn’t look so common if you’ve got a Pucci scarf wrapped around your neck. To complement this luxurious ensemble, make sure you’re wearing a nice pair of trousers and killer pumps. Top off your look with an embellished envelope bag or buttery soft leather clutch.
Patterned coordinates. If you’re not into suits, maybe a shorts-and-blazer set will do. Glam up your white shirt with damask patterned combos; you can wear them to casual events or even on dates. Choose one in a metallic shade for added sparkle.
A tee with tea skirt. Midi skirts are another closet staple for the ladies. Just like your basic white shirt, they’re versatile piece and can be easily dressed up or down. It’s no wonder why a tee and a tea skirt looks so good together. Floral-patterned skirts are effortlessly classic, and add a pop of color to the look with a nice wrap coat. Other mid-length skirts you can try: pleated A-lines and lace detailed pencil skirts.
