Every fashion guru and their momma will tell you to invest your money in classic pieces. Why? Because they never run out of style and they can be put together to suit so many different occasions. Classics come in terms of styles, shades and textures. An example of classic styles would be the off shoulder. This is a style that has been here since the 70’s. It recently came back and I doubt if we are ready to let it go. A classic texture would be lace. I mean, what is more classic yet as elegant as lace?
White t-shirts are a classic piece that every girl needs in her closet.
A plain white t-shirt can be dressed up or down; it doesn’t have to be a casual choice only. You can style it casually, in a dressy sense and make it work perfectly as part of your office wear. They are generally affordable, flattering and exceptionally chic.
The current trend is white t-shirts with writings on them. Brands like Christian Dior showcased their white t-shirt collection with the statement “We should all be feminists”.
On the runway, it was a display of female solidarity and something very different from what is expected from the fashion house. It was far from couture but it definitely set a trend for fashionistas and feminists everywhere.
White t-shirts with cool sayings on them are quite popular at the moment and can be styled in so many fun ways.
T-shirts with inspirational words on them make for great casual pieces. The most popular at the moment would be the “Girl boss “, “The future is African and she is female“, “Black girl magic“, among many other fabulous sayings. Look at it as letting your t-shirt dictate your vibe. Live on the edge and get one that says “Vodka made me do it“.
KEEP IT CASUAL
Pair your white t-shirt with some denim; this is always the go to look. You could keep this look fresh and clean. Opt for a pair of well fitted blue jeans, some white sneakers or canvas shoes and your white t-shirt. To edge the look up maybe opt for a pair of boyfriend jeans or vintage high waist denim and pair the look with some heels or fish net stockings underneath. Don’t restrict yourself to pants; you can also try a denim skirt for this particular look.
BOSS IT UP
You could make the white t-shirt an office staple as well; it’s all in the styling. Opt for either a pair of pants or a fitting skirt, heels or flats depends on your personal style and preference. This can be a business casual look or even a formal every day office look. Add more spice to your look and tie a chic neck scarf, some classic pieces of jewelry and a bold lip for that added boss effect.
DRESS IT UP, MAKE IT LOOK CHIC
Plain white t-shirts are a wardrobe staple. When you need a quick dressy look, you might find that this staple comes in handy to create more than one fabulous look.
Pair your white t-shirt with a sleeveless jumpsuit, a stunning skirt, some leather pants, a strapless dress, my list could go on forever. This will go perfectly with some hoop earrings, some glamorous makeup, a great pair of sunglasses, a denim or a leather jacket. It is a great look for dinner with the girls, lunch with your person or an event.
This is a very practical yet an easy-to-achieve-looks wardrobe staple that I feel should be included in your closet. It can be styled flawlessly regardless of the climate. Moreover, it is suitable for all style personalities as well as all body types. You just have to find a way that works for you. Get yourself a classic white t-shirt from your local thrift stores, chain stores like MrP, Woolworths, F&F or get them custom-made with the sayings of your choice. A classic never runs out of style and it is definitely worth the money.
