A white T-shirt is possibly the easiest garment to style with other clothing of various colors and textures all season long. This closet staple can be dressed up or down and gives people a fresh and clean vibe. Got a white top at home and looking for inspiration to give yourself a new look this back-to-school season? Look no further—here are some ways a white top can be styled for different looks and occasions.

keep it simple

 Wear your go-to white T-shirt with your favorite jeans. Skinny jeans will give you an urban girl look, while high-rise, flare, frayed, and raw hem jeans showcase an edgy vibe. Finish your look with accessories such as a statement necklace or colorful blocked heels for a pop of color. Try adding a patterned purse to keep your look simple yet fashionable day to night.

jackets for days

Style a white T-shirt with a blazer or a waterfall coat, black business pants, and Chelsea boots. This dressier attire can be worn to work, interviews, and business occasions, keeping you looking sharp and professional.

If you are looking for a more casual everyday look for school or nights out with friends this fall, a denim jacket or a leather jacket would be a classic choice to pair with your white T-shirt. The jacket can keep you warm while looking ’90s grunge/rocker chic. A long, thick sweater cardigan is also a great choice for a softer feminine look, keeping you cozy in the late fall.
