How To Wear A White T-Shirt ALL Weekend

Fact: There's nothing like a basic, white T-shirt. But, finding that perfect, not-too-slouchy fit is only half the battle. Ahead, check out three, super-chic ways to style your favorite boxy tee that look like the opposite of a lazy-day cop out.

Nothing says carefree like a plain white T-Shirt and jeans. But, don't want to look sloppy on your Saturday afternoon day date? Here's the trick: Wear a fitted jumper over the tee to give yourself a little more shape, a pair of not-too-slouchy boyfriend jeans, and pastel heels (not too high!) to keep things feeling flirty.

Museum dressing is harder than one would think, but the trick is keeping it comfortable without compromising the chic-factor. To accomplish this, we recommend pairing a boxy white tee with a sleek black skirt and tossing a monochrome anorak over for a little bit of structure. And, as for the ruby red sunglasses? Well, those just add a pop-art touch. Lastly, without a doubt, definitely skip the heels — unless you want to be the girl sitting stranded on the bench by the elevators.

Okay, so just because it's nighttime doesn't mean you have to kick that T-Shirt to the curb. Taking a nod from Kate Moss '90s Calvin Klein ads, wear your tee with a pair of perfectly untailored slacks, a badass black jacket, and your favorite pair of flat ankle boots. Skip the mascara and opt for a berry lip tint instead. Trust, the understated-sexy look kills it every time.
