There are many things we can’t live without — food, water, and oxygen, just to name a few. But, when it comes to our sartorial side, there’s only one heavy-hitter we need: the white T-shirt. We'll even admit that if we had to, we’d give up every designer piece in our arsenal before the basic $10 Hanes tee. Sorry, Prada.
The thrifty, deceptively simple throw-on is endlessly diverse, offering unlimited styling possibilities. You can literally wear it anywhere. ANYWHERE. Don't believe us? Well, we're proving it ahead with five different outfits for five separate occasions. And, these looks wouldn't be anywhere near as good without this cheap, trusty tee. Top that.

For Sippin' Mimosas With A Plate Of Eggs

Keep your look comfy and cool with very right-now, paint-accented chinos, a transitional coat, and a solid pair of sneakers that’ll make the boozy walk home much easier.

For Dancing The Night Away

Believe it or not, a white tee can be sexy when you’re out for a night of dancing — as long as it’s styled correctly. Layer it under a strapless dress for a downtown vibe, and incorporate sky-high heels and a glam clutch to keep the look flirty and fun.

For Workin' 9-to-5

A basic, white tee not on casual Friday? Yes, yes, yes. But, to ensure you look professional and not sloppy, pair it with a crisp suit — we love one in an unexpected, pastel color — and sensible accessories.

For Gettin' Your Drank On

Just because you’re going out doesn’t mean you have to ditch your basic tee. Team it with a flouncy, bright-hued skirt, and balance everything out with a distressed-denim jacket and awesome accessories — like leopard-print sandals and an ear cuff.

For Grocery Runs, Doctor Appointments, And, Um, Shopping

Sure, a white tee and jeans make undoubtedly the simplest throw-on-and-go outfit, but you can elevate your errands-look game (you know, for impromptu coffee dates) with sporty, printed pants, flat sandals, a graphic pullover for layering, and simple accessories.
