"Plain" White T's

Note to White T-Shirts:
What would I do without you? Your versatility never seems to amaze me. I love to wear you with jeans, shorts, skirts, to the gym (the few times I actually go to the gym that is), to sleep in-- really your possibilities are endless. I can wear you to the beach over a swimsuit and then seamlessly transition to wearing you under a fabulous leather jacket with some skinny jeans on a date that night. You look good in the winter with a scarf and a cardigan and you look good in the summer with some shorts and flip flops. I love that I can buy you in a pack of three (Hane's Undershirts for Men) at Target for $9.99. I'm usually am not a fan of frequent wardrobe repeats, but with you I find it hard not to wear you a few times a week. Thank you for always being there for me when I need you.
Note to Readers:
First and foremost, I apologize for my lack of blogging this past week. I was enjoying an extended holiday weekend. Hopefully there are still a few of you coming back to check for new posts and you haven't given up on me yet!
Now for a few tips about wearing White T's, the key here is to keep your look from being too plain. While your shirt may be simple, your outfit does not need to be. Adding a little extra to your outfit can be as simple as wearing a bright colored flat shoe with your jeans and white t-shirt. You can also think outside of the box and pair your t-shirt with more formal wear, for instance a friend of mine wore one with a high waisted skirt, a wide belt, and fabulous platform heels for her birthday party and she looked amazing! When your shirt is white, you can use a lot of color in your accessories without looking too overdone. Once you start thinking of new ways to wear these ubiquitous garments, you won't be able to stop! Have fun and remember, life is too short for boring clothes.
