A quick and often-forgotten trick to getting dressed in the morning without repeating your favorite outfit – again – is to dig through your closet for timeless items that can be reinvented and upgraded in countless different ways.
The white T-shirt is one such item, a staple that is readily available in every wardrobe and flattering on virtually every body type. And why do we love this classic piece of clothing? Let us count the ways. It’s comfortable, practical, versatile, appropriate for all four seasons, exudes a sense of studied nonchalance – we could go on forever.
Savoir Flair has sifted through the accounts of Insta-girls across the globe to gather the inspiration you need to create new outfits out of this ubiquitous wardrobe must-have.
Opt for Oversized
Consider your white tee a blank canvas that you can rework however you like. The boxy, slouchy silhouette of an oversized tee leaves a lot of room for sartorial reinterpretation. Dana Hourani chooses to tie a knot for a little crop-top action, while Natalya Kanj tucks her oversized tee into a fitted, asymmetrical skirt for a noteworthy play on proportions.
There is no better time than now to proudly flaunt your favorite Disney T-shirts and concert merchandise, so have fun with pieces that come with a side of kitsch. If you’re feeling particularly crafty, customizing your white tees is yet another way of expressing your personality and individual sense of style.
Keep It Fitted
A fitted silhouette is probably the most versatile style in the world of white T-shirts, pairing equally well with trousers, shorts, and skirts. The front-tie details on Iranian Insta-girl Negin Mirsalehi’s white tee are just another modern-day interpretation of this stylish necessity.
Wear your white tee over and over again simply by accessorizing it differently every time. Chokers, bandanas, and lightweight trench vests are just a few options that can upgrade an otherwise plain look.
