How To Style A Simple Tee-Shirt

simple tee-shirt

Is there any fashion piece more must-have than a simple tee-shirt? Whether it is white, black or nude, if it is unicolor, have a logo or have a small print, it is an essential. Easy to wear, easy to style. Apparently. I personally use simple tee-shirts either as pyjamas or for work out.

Never as a fashion piece.

It is always the same scenario. I go shopping and spot a cool tee-shirt. Whether is is lose, large, has a cool cleavage, something in the back… but still a simple tee-shirt, I look at it, weigh the pros and cons and end up putting it back where I found it. Why, you may ask? Because I never know how to style it! My first thought is “No, boring.” I don’t know what to wear to make it interesting.

Because, a white tee and a black pair of jeans… Classic, minimalist, timeless, but too simple for me.

So when I spotted this tee-shirt on ASOS, I decided to style it differently. Its shape is super basic as it is unisex. No collar or cleavage. Almost a sport tee! Just a cool print with a nice message behind it. But not enough to make it cool.

So what do you do?

You accessorize it! You bring together individual pieces that will make the whole exciting and interesting! To make a contrast with the whiteness and simplicity of the tee-shirt, I wore it with a bright red ruffle skirt. I added some glamour with sparkling black trainers and chunky edgy ear cuffs!

The final touch? Some funky sunglasses and a cross-body bag taken straight from my childhood! So, what do you think? Did I pass?

What do you think? How would you style a simple tee-shirt? Would you go for a unicolor tee-shirt? Or a slogan tee? And what would you wear with it? Did I pass? What do you think of this outfit?

    Amazing style. Love the shirt and skirt combination! I also love the t-shirt’s design but I would prefer mine to be question marks since I always question my decisions in my life haha. Kidding aside I really love how this complemented you. You definitely have good taste. Thanks for sharing!

    A tee is just a closet must have! Not only is it versatile but also looks very edgy especially when styled as well as you have styled yours. I also love how you accessorize with the sling bag and sunglasses!

    You did style your tee really nicely and it fits you very well. I love the little bag. If it was me I would have gone for the boring tshirt and jeans or shorts combinations. That’s kind of my style though, I like simple looks.

    I love your whole outfit, bold and daring and yet simple and relax and casual. The tee shirt looks super comfy as I like lose outfit especially in summer. I also love your handbag, look traditional but yet very fashionable.

    I love a good simple tee shirt! I usually just go for a plain and simple one, but I’m slowly getting into slogan ones. That being said, the one you chose to style is adorable! Will have to check out ASOS.

    I love the way you style a t-shirt. That skirt is so cute with the ruffles.

  13. August 2, 2018 / 5:16 pm

    I love this style! I have quite a few simple tees but never thought to pair it with a skirt. You look great in everything you wear! I love the bag too, it’s super cute! Thanks for the inspiration Corinne <3 xx

    I like how you styled this! I’m boring and just wear t-shirts with my jeans. But I’m rather boring.

    You look great and you have done an amazing job styling this tee. This is a great post and I enjoyed it.

    I would personally pair a simple t-shirt with some bright funky trousers. Say white t-shirt and red trousers. Or necklaces! Jewellery always adds character. Great post, lovely pictures xx

    I love how you styled a t-shirt to fit in flawlessly with the cute truffle shirt! I am in love with the pattern! At first I thought it was a pretzel but it’s the & sign XD. I would totally style a skirt with a simple tee! I mean it can work with different patterns, slogans, and just a plain shirt – gotta own it and run with it! ♥

    As a teacher, I’m always looking for ways I can look more professional, while still staying comfy. What a great way to make a simple t-shirt do exactly that. I will definitely be trying to coordinate some of my simple tees with my skirts and some accessories!!

    Omg I just love your style! I love how you paired that fun tee with a red skirt.

  26. August 5, 2018 / 6:06 am

    Loved the ruffled skirt and ear cuffs. Are the ear cuffs clip on types or do you have to have 2 holes pierced on each ear to wear them?

  27. August 5, 2018 / 4:28 pm

    The skirt and your top matches but I’m not sure of the shoes lol maybe its just me since Im not really a fashionista, yay! But I would rather wear it with a flat doll shoe or a red sexy wedge.

  28. August 6, 2018 / 5:49 am

    You look stunning Corinne! Love your style.

    No man can resist a woman’s gentleness. If a woman’s beauty is eye candy, then her gentleness is a practical problem, because a gentle woman can give a man more spiritual comfort.
