3 Ways to Wear a Basic White T-shirt

by Leyallday

A basic white t-shirt is a wardrobe staple for me in every season because it is so versatile. It’s a true blank canvas and can be dressed up or dressed down and you have tons of options for accessories as well.

Here are 3 easy and affordable ways to style a basic white t-shirt from for summer. I got this t-shirts from Target for $8 (one has pockets, the other doesn’t).

1) Sporty: I paired the white t-shirt with biker shorts and platform sneakers

2) Casual: I paired the white t-shirt with cute scalloped chambray shorts and sandals

3) Dressy: I paired the white t-shirt with earrings, a jean jacket, leopard print skirt, tan clutch, and mules

*These are some ideas, but you can change up the type of shoes for any of these looks as well as the colors/prints of any of the items of clothing or accessories*
