How To: Taking a Basic White Tee from Day-to-Night

July 26, 2010 § 1 Comment

In order to expand your wardrobe and make it more versatile you must at  least invest in the essentials that you can pair with several different items.

A basic white tee is easy to carry from day-to-night – with the right accessories and a little layering it is simple to pull off a different look by keeping only one item the same.

Shorts: Daytime Look

Casual shorts (khaki, denim, cotton) paired with a  jacket or vest over the white tee is an easy throw on outfit for the day.  To keep a look “daytime”  you don’t want to over accessorize – stacked bangles with either a dainty long necklace or hoop earrings is perfect.  Platform heels, wedges or sandals is a great finishing touch.

Shorts: Night Look

Tailored shorts with detailing; such as, pleating, layers, cuffed hems are great with a white tee and a blazer.  Dress up nighttime looks by piling on the accessories.  If you have a bold shoe (as pictured below) that should be the only stand out piece of the outfit, accessories should be kept simple.  Or you could opt for a simple pump with statement jewelry pieces instead.

Skirt: Daytime Look

Full skirts with ruffles or tiered details are fun and playful – best suited for daytime. A waist belt, a long chain necklace and bangles bring the look together.  You can also pair the look with a sandal or a wedge heel.

Skirt: Night Look

Form fitting skirts are a sexy way to dress up a white tee.   With the detailing on the skirt you do not want to over do it with jewelry.  A statement piece add-on, on the top suggests a simple heel. 

Pant: Daytime Look

A white tee tucked or untucked into a cropped or skinny cargo pant or denim is a cool way to wear a tee during the day.  Worn with a wedge heel print – all you need are stacked bangles paired with hoops and if you want to wear a necklace, a long simple chain will suffice.  With a busy wedge heel, nothing else should compete with that.

Pant: Night Look

An all white ensemble is a great summer look – to carry this look into the evening, add a touch of color.  The cropped jacket or blazer can also be in white but you need to add a color somewhere throughout your outfit.  White heels with all white from head-to-toe is too much white – a neutral or colored heel works best.  Since all white can look very casual – accessorizing is a must!
