I wear t-shirts with absolutely everything, fancy and casual looks, under dresses and by themselves. What you may or may not know is that the basic black and white tees I’m almost always wearing are organic bamboo and from one of my fav companies, Onno T-Shirts. The shirts are incredibly soft and have survived countless rounds in the washer and dryer.
This outfit is my take on the all-black look for summer. The pants are airy, the tee is lightweight, and the sandals bring out the warm weather vibes. I’m a wannabe minimalist and this is about as close as it gets. I love wearing all black, but somehow a little color usually sneaks in…or camel wedges in this case.
Here’s a rundown of my 3 favorite ways to wear basic tees:
Under dresses and jumpers - I’ve discussed this in a previous post where I styled my white Onno tee under a blue pleated dress, but I just love how a tee instantly downplays a fancy dress. Layering a tee under a dress can also make your look more work appropriate, as well as add the perfect hint of edge to your feminine attire.
By themselves - Wearing a tee with a simple skirt or pair of skinny jeans basically equals casual perfection. A basic tee gives off a super low-key vibe, while at the same time has you looking super polished and chic. It’s also the greatest base when you’re in the mood to wear an armload of accessories.
With prints - There is no better way to accent a printed skirt or pair of pants than with a solid white or black tee. The plain tee keeps the outfit from getting too busy and also makes matching extra simple.
