A white tshirt. It’s a staple everyone should own.

The importance of a plain white t shirt goes back in history, from the 80’s punks who used them to make a statement to minimalist fashion today.

They’re one of the easiest items of clothing to style and here are a few options to make you shine in white this summer.


Orange Flower Bead Necklace, Topshop

Just simply pairing a white t shirt with jeans can be so effective. To spice up the plain outfit, add a statement necklace and a bright lipstick. This statement necklace from Topshop would work really well, with a bright red or orange lipstick. It’s all about the accessories for this look. 

 Leather mini skirt

Silver Pearl Bar Rope Necklace, New Look

You can pair a plain white t shirt with a leather mini in order to achieve more of a going out look. This look would be slightly more dressed up than the previous and if  you just team it up with a silver necklace (as pictured below)  you’ll avoid color and texture clash. The simplicity of it will mean that you can go heavier with your make up and put on those high heels you have been dying to wear! 

Pencil skirt

Gold Multi Chain Pearl Chunky Drape Necklace, New Look

They are everywhere at the moment and a white t shirt goes really well with a pencil skirt. In order to make this not look like an office outfit, add a gold necklace to make it look a little less formal.

This one also from New Look  is a great one to get as it’s chunky form will give the outfit more substance and youth.

So there you have it. You can accessorise a plain white t shirt for any occasion.

 Grab the white t shirt from your wardrobe and start experimenting!
