We are seeing the trend of putting a white T-shirt under a dress or tank everywhere. I love this look, and it’s something that everyone can try, it’s such an easy outfit to throw together. All you need is a T-shirt and a skinny strapped tank or dress. Layer the T-shirt under your top or dress of choice and there you go! Use your personal style to accessorize, and you are instantly chic. Check out this slip dress—it’s the perfect piece to layer a white T-shirt under!

go for denim

I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of denim. And lots of denim. I love the look of multiple types of denim paired together when it’s done right. One of the easiest ways to pull off this look is to simply add a T-shirt under a denim jacket. You could also go for a chill look by just picking a fun, frayed pair of jeans and pairing them with a cool mule shoe. Just add your white T-shirt and you’ve got an effortlessly trendy look.

add on top

Start with your white T-shirt first and build on top of it. You can go for any bottom that you want, whether it’s a skirt, jeans, or any pant. Make the statement and focus be on the jacket or vest that you add on top of the white T-shirt. I would go for a lone-lined blazer vest, white T-shirt, and light wash jeans. For a cold-weather look, I would go for a statement jacket on top of a white T-shirt with black jeans and mules.

  1. I love the tips that you gave the reader, they are super helpful! I often buy XL T-shirt’s and wear them as a dress.

  2. Wearing a white t-shirt is one of my favorite easy looks, so when I saw this article, I was excited to see your tips. Do you have any suggestions on where you buy your t-shirts? I got my favorite one at h&m, not clingy or thin material, not overly boxy, and wasn’t see through. However, I wore that to the ground and can’t find anything similar at h&m any longer. Any suggestions?

  3. Thanks for the tips. They are great! In my opinion everyone should have at least one white t-shirt in their wardrobe. It is a universal piece of clothes that can be combined almost with everything. My favorite combinations are with midi skirt and beautiful necklace for elegant outfit or with white sneakers and colorful scarf for casual look.
