A white t-shirt is probably the most essential item to any wardrobe.

Now, I realize this isn’t groundbreaking news, but a good reminder is always needed. No matter your personal style, a white t-shirt is an absolute must-have piece.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am forever on the hunt to find the elusive perfect white tee. I’ve asked around, but I think when it’s all said and done, it’s a personal preference. However that does not mean I’m not willing to try any and all recommendations!

Some things we all look for when trying to find the perfect white t-shirt:
  • fit
  • length
  • fabric
  • neckline

For that reason, going off of someone else’s recommendation can be a bit hard.

So while I am here to share a white t-shirt I recently found (for super cheap), I also wanted to share just how essential a white t-shirt is. A white t-shirt goes with EVERYTHING. Seriously, everything.

I’ve found some really great white t-shirts over the years, Madewell will forever have one of my favorite relaxed, v-neck fits, but the one I’m sharing in today’s post is just a simple, more fitted, crew neck white tee. A classic, if you will.

I purchased this tee (it comes in a four pack) back in December and I am not lying when I say that I have been living in it. The day I purchased them, Brand and I met some friends at a bar and I paired one with my leather pants. I’ve cut two of them into a more cropped fit that I’ve paired with my high-waist jeans and as you can see in last Wednesday’s post I tied one up to add a little interest to an all white outfit.

In today’s post, I’m showing how you can dress up the white t-shirt for a date night (or just a night out in general) as well as style one for the office.

When I first started my office job, I would never have fathomed wearing just a t-shirt to the office, but why not?!

Paired with classic slacks and a black blazer, this look would be appropriate for any office.

And if your office is more on the casual side (i.e. you don’t need the blazer), the black slacks, white tee and black pumps is still perfect acceptable.

This is pretty much my ideal work look. It’s casual, but still professional and classic. Just how I like it.

As for the date night look…

A leather skirt and a pair of strappy heels is the perfect way to elevate a basic white t-shirt while still looking like you are ready for a night out.

Throw a chic jacket over it, grab a classic bag and this look is anything, but basic.

So, what is your favorite way to style a basic white t-shirt?!

    You definitely can’t go wrong with a good white tee. They work with just about everything! My favorites are from Everlane – good quality, not too thin, good price and they come in several cuts. I’ve been wearing them for several years. I really love the brand as a whole. And I love the ways you styled it here! Such great looks!

    Yes, I noticed the t shirt in your post the other day and loved it. This is such a great post and I agree about the importance of finding our perfect white t. Love your styling here, Shannon.
    Happy Weekend, weekend.

    I love both ways of styling it! You always have the best inspiration, seriously. It’s kind of weird (and annoying?) how hard it can be to find the perfect white shirt, though. I’ll definitely have to check out what you linked here. Hope you have a great weekend!
