How To Make A Casual Plain White Tee Cute

How To Make A Casual Plain White Tee Cute

The plain white tee should be a closet staple for everyone. It’s so simple and comfy, but can be dressed up and made to look cute. So long are the days when it was just used for lounging around or as an undershirt. I really like wearing it when I need to look a little put together but feel a little lazy😂

Finding a great white tee shirt can be a bit hard. Scoop neck or v-neck? Cropped or flowing? Save or splurge? I personally like a longer length with a scoop neck. I choose a little bit of a longer length rather than cropped so it can be tied at my stomach or tucked into pants. I tend to gravitate towards scoop necks more, but that’s just a personal preference. My favorite plain white tee is from Topshop, but I got it at Nordstrom. It’s under $20 and I really like it. It’s not the softest tee I’ve ever had, but I feel like it’s still a very solid pick.

I LOVE the pre-rolled sleeves, it adds a little stylish factor to the basic top. Which brings me to my first tip for upgrading your basic tee – find new ways to tuck or tie it. Rolling your sleeves, tying the bottom above your midriff, or tucking in the front into a skirt or pair of pants elevates the look almost immediately. It makes it look like you tried even though it took you .02 seconds. Win.

Recreate The Look: 

For me, one of the best ways to make a plain tee shirt look super put together is to pair it with cute shoes. While I love wearing my white Converse with this same outfit, adding a pair of wedges or mules really pull the look together. These Sam Edelman mules are perfect for this, because they give you some height while not making you feel like you’re towering over everyone. They add just a touch of style to an otherwise simple look.
My next tip is to accessorize. Whether this be with a pair of fun sunglasses, some jewelry, or a purse adding an accessory will let you show off your personal style. In this look, I’m wearing my favorite diamond studs, one of my fun pairs of sunglasses, a cute Kate Spade purse, and my new Daniel Wellington watch. (Which I’m obsessed with and will be doing a review on in the upcoming weeks!!)
