If you've followed SMT for a while then you know I'm a t-shirt and jeans gal through and through. My dresser drawers are filled with t-shirts from various brands and are in color coordinated piles. Black, grey, white, and a few colors. The two colors that I always grab are my black or white ones.
The plain t-shirt is a wardrobe basic that can literally be worn from morning to night. You can wear it to work then happy hour then on to date night and right into bed. What other item in your closet can you say works that hard ;)
The simplicity of the t-shirt makes dressing it up or down so easy. It's the perfect foundation item to layer and build your outfit around. When wearing a plain t-shirt paired with your favorite denim or skirts, add a moto vest or blazer to give the look some structure. Alternatively pairing a t-shirt with prints is a great way to let the printed item stand-out.
One of the best ways to elevate a simple t-shirt is to have some fun with the accessories. Go bold with a statement necklace or layer a few dainty necklaces if that's your style. Instead of going with jewelry you can follow my route and layer your favorite scarf draped over the front or a choker style bandana worn around your neck.
While I know some ladies are adamant that a white t-shirt is "too casual" I challenge you to try some of the tips above and incorporate a plain tee in your next look. You can easily build tons of outfits from this one piece. It's versatility is endless and makes for packing for trips a breeze!
