Good Morning, friends!
It’s Monday and cold. Not exactly a winning combination.
Speaking of winning combinations, in a matter of days there could be a billionaire Powerball winner among us. Can you even imagine?! $1.3 billion could certainly help you find your heart’s delight… and mine.
As for a more attainable winning combination, I’ve actually got 4 for you… and yes, you guessed it: They all involve a $12 white t-shirt. Generally, all of this t-shirt talk is reserved for the warm weather months, but t-shirts are a simple wardrobe addition that are truly year-round staples. The fact that you can GET A GREAT ONE for only $12 (or 2 for $14!), just sweetens the deal.
All-white is definitely all right in my style book. Remember those WHITE PUMPS I’ve been lusting over!? The blending of bright white and soft cream is a great way to bring your favorite summer white t-shirt into winter stylings — it just elevates the look and gives it a visual richness. I love the addition of wide leg pants! They’re a Fall/Winter trend that will be continuing into 2016, so don’t hesitate to give your skinnies a rest.
Use your favorite white shirt as a foundation piece on which to build the rest of your look. The pop of bright white can give an otherwise neutral outfit the boost it needs to stand out… not to mention, the extra layer will keep you a bit warmer as temperatures continue to drop.
When wearing oversized proportions like this t-shirt and boyfriend jeans combo, it’s always a good idea to add a touch of structure and femininity with a tailored blazer and elegant heels. It keeps the outfit from appearing to0 sloppy and the contrast of masculine and feminine makes it effortless and interesting.
4. Create Contrast:
One of my favorite features of a basic white t-shirt is its ability to transform typically dressy, cocktail-attire pieces into something that is more appropriate for everyday wear. Add a white t-shirt to your favorite party skirt, or top a pair of sequin pants with a simple white tee and the outfit comes together instantly creating a high-end fashion look with little effort.
Here are some of my favorite white t-shirts for all budgets–
