10 creative ways to style a basic t-shirt

Basic t-shirts are a wardrobe essential that can be dressed up or down, depending on how you style them. If you're in a style rut and not sure how to elevate your tees, here are 10 creative ways to do so:

  1. Layer it under a slip dress or overalls for a 90s-inspired look.
  2. Knot it at the front or side for a cropped, trendy silhouette.
  3. Tuck it into high-waisted pants or a skirt and add a belt for a pulled-together outfit.
  4. Layer it under a sweater or cardigan and leave the collar and sleeves peeking out for a trendy pop of color.
  5. Roll up the sleeves and pair it with a blazer for a smart casual look.
  6. Wear it with printed pants or a patterned skirt for a bold, eclectic outfit.
  7. Layer it under a denim jacket or coat for a classic, cool-weather look.
  8. Pair it with statement jewelry or a scarf for a dressier, more polished outfit.
  9. Wear it with bike shorts and sneakers for a sporty, casual vibe.
  10. Dress it up with a midi or maxi skirt and heels for a night out.

Experimenting with different styles and layering techniques can help you get more mileage out of your basic t-shirts. So next time you reach for a plain tee, try one of these creative styling ideas to elevate your look.
