Elizabeth Olsen's Chic Way To Elevate A Simple, White Tee

Imagine your basic, white tee as a painter's blank canvas. It may not look like much on its own, but with some clever styling, your unadorned, ol' crewneck won’t look so plain anymore. Case in point: Elizabeth Olsen's sleek, minimalist approach to party attire. Yes, unsurprisingly, when you're swimming in the same gene pool as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, good looks and enviable style are pretty much a given. Sigh.
To recreate Olsen's simple, nighttime attire, we’re dressing up J.Crew’s Perfect-Fit Tee with a blue-tweed blazer, open-toed booties, and drape-y, black pant for a dinner-and-drinks look with heaps of personality. Instead of mixing and matching colors, contrast the textures in your outfit — here, we focused on tweed, jacquard, and leather — for a look that is refined, smart, and unfussy. Top it off with metallic accessories like delicate gold jewelry and a silver crossbody for a perfectly understated ensemble.
