Only Olivia Palermo Could Make A White T-Shirt Look This Fancy

Once again, Olivia Palermo proves that even the most routine task deserves a photo-worthy outfit. While out for a stroll in DUMBO with her adorable pooch, Mr. Butler, Palermo sported an all-white ensemble — complete with lace-up heels and Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning sunnies. While this look is decidedly more polished than your average dog-walker duds, the outfit is built around everyone's closet staple: the white T-shirt. Olivia's draped, belted version proves comfort can be subtle and stylish.
While we're not about to pick up our dogs' droppings in Aquazzura sandals, Palermo's casual look teaches us a couple of things. First, fear thee not the white-on-white outfit; if Olivia can go unstained through a dog stroll, we can don our favorite whites without spilling our morning coffee on them. Second — and probably most important — you can dress up a plain white tee. Take a tip from Olivia: Choose a loose-fitting, longer-sleeved iteration, and pair it with a high-waisted midi skirt. (Sky-high heels optional.)
Ahead, our picks for plain white tees just begging to be dressed up.
