While many people seem to love the white tee with a black slip dress, try pairing the tee with a slip dress in shades of pink to keep cool in the summer heat. Another style option: the outfit can easily transform into an evening look by simply removing the t-shirt and wearing the dress alone for a girls’ night out or a dinner date with your partner.

Want a clean, crisp look for the summer? Experiment with an all-white outfit! White is the best color to keep you cool during the summer months. Wear each clothing piece in different textures, like a white t-shirt paired with white jeans, trousers, or a pleated skirt for a super chic look.

If you feel like the outfit's lacking something, then spice it up with bright-colored accessories like a red belt. Wearing an all-white outfit might seem a bit intimidating. You might be worried about stains, which can be a real nightmare. Always carry an on-the-go stain remover pen with you, and keep rocking the look!

12 T-Shirt Tucked Into High-Waisted Trousers With Tie Belt


Squeezing into your jeans in the summer weather can be difficult. That said, you can ditch the jeans and still be chic in comfortable and fashionable trousers. For a business casual look, tuck the white t-shirt into high-waisted trousers with a tie belt.

Adding a long blazer with a pair of heels will help make you feel like a boss.

These trousers are so stylish because they make your legs look longer- plus the belt accentuates your waist, showing off your curves.

11 Style A Simple White Tee With A Metallic Pleated Skirt


Many people wear metallic pieces around the holidays; they’re extremely popular for New Year’s Eve parties. Therefore, it might seem odd to wear metallics casually during the day- but there are ways to make it work.

If you’re going to wear a loud skirt (or any other clothing items), you should tone down the rest of your outfit to keep it simple. Tuck a loose white t-shirt in a metallic pleated skirt for a cleaner look, and pair the outfit with plain white sneakers to achieve a chic-street style. Also keep accessories to a minimum, like studded earrings and a small purse.

10 Slip On A T-Shirt Under A Suit For Work


If you don't work in a place with a strictly formal dress code, then you should swap your pretty blouse for a plain white t-shirt under suits!

Tucking the t-shirt in gives a polished look, keeping you comfortable and classy on the clock. 

Celebrities have been rocking this style recently, and more people are following the trend by dressing down a bit for work. It should be fine as long as the t-shirt isn’t too tight or too sheer and it's paired with a blazer and dress pants. Overall, the outfit is light and comfortable to wear in the summer, but it can be worn in other seasons as well.

9 White Shirt And Denim Overalls For A Fun-Filled Day


Overalls are super comfortable (except when you have to use the ladies' room), and there are many ways to wear them. A white t-shirt underneath distressed denim overalls paired with converse sneakers is cute, fun and stylish!

If you put on a summer hat and sunglasses with the outfit, it gives off a vacation vibe- making this a go-to outfit for a road trip. While keeping things simple is nice, you can elevate the look with a stylish handbag, watch, and heels. You can also wear a white t-shirt with denim overalls when the weather gets a bit chilly, along with a cozy cardigan and boots.

8 Go For A Minimalist Style With Neutral Colors


When it comes to minimalist fashion, less is more. Keeping the outfit clean and simple can create an effortlessly chic look. Therefore, neutral-colored pieces are great to have in your wardrobe. Some might find this trend boring, but it can be just as fun and interesting as a loud outfit.

For a relaxed aesthetic, wear a light grey silk midi dress over a white t-shirt.

Because minimalist style isn’t big on over-accessorizing, pair the outfit with a pale pink bag and a fedora hat. It’s the perfect last-minute outfit when you can’t decide on what to wear and you’re in a hurry!

7 Pinstriped Midi Skirt & Sun Hat Are Perfect For The Beach


Your closet needs a midi skirt because it's super cute plus elongates your figure. The skirt covers the knees- making it work appropriate- so you can look stylish at the office. If your skirt has ruffles or prints, balance it with a simple white tee that can dress down the outfit.

Pinstripe midi skirts are gorgeous pieces that scream summer! A sheer white tee tucked into a playful skirt with strappy sandals (or tied into a knot), stylish sunglasses, and a sunhat is a breezy outfit to keep cool in the summer. If you’re petite, you can still pull this look off with wedge sandals.

6 Pair It With Black Wide Leg Culottes For Office Chic


It can be tricky to style culottes, but when done right, the outfit can be very flattering. The key is to keep things simple, meaning accessories should be kept to a bare minimum.

Wearing a black blazer over a white tee tucked into black wide-leg culottes with heels creates polished and put-together office chic.

Opt for light- or bright-colored culottes like pink or coral for a summery look. Because they're at an ankle-grazing length, you can pair them with flats or sneakers while maintaining a laid-back look. Overall, culottes are comfortable and breezy to wear in the warm weather, and a plain white tee sets them off perfectly.

5 Ripped Jeans And Nude Pointed Heels For A Casual Vibe


The blue jeans and white t-shirt combo is a classic look that never goes out of style- but this go-to outfit can feel a bit boring at times. Fortunately, there are endless ways to spice it up. Jeans come in a variety of styles: raw hem skinny jeans or distressed boyfriend jeans, to name a few.

The casual outfit instantly looks cooler when a simple white tee is half-tucked into your favorite pair of ripped jeans (whether the color is black or blue). Adding nude pointed heels and a bag of a similar shade gives an edgier look. By dressing it up or down, this outfit can be worn during the day or night.

4 A Plaid Shirt Over A Tee And Jeans Is The Perfect Airport Look


Achieving a look that’s super comfortable and stylish is quite easy with a plaid shirt. You might be tempted to throw on any old thing when you wake up early to head to the airport, but if you don’t want to look sloppy, layer a plaid shirt over a white t-shirt and jeans paired with sneakers.

The outfit gives a cool-girl vibe and therefore makes for a fabulous yet functional airport look.

Because a plaid shirt can be worn all year round, you can layer it with a leather jacket on chilly days. Overall, adding the shirt when you feel like your basic outfit is missing something is a fashionable idea.

3 Linen Pants Are Super Comfortable And Chic


Linen pants are the best kind of pants to wear in the summer months. Linen is breathable, unlike jeans and leggings that cling unto you because of the humidity. Light-colored linen pants and a tee can keep the heat at bay. Besides, you can never go wrong with minimalist fashion.

Feel fresh pairing beige linen pants with a sheer v-neck tee in white for a clean, crisp look. Wearing cute sandals and a sunhat is the perfect go-to outfit for a beautiful beach day. The outfit can be dressed up and down— look sophisticated for work and casual chic when you go out with friends, depending on how you accessorize.

2 Add A Pop Of Color To Your Black-And-White Outfit


Monochromatic outfits like black-and-white are super chic; however, some might find this everyday outfit a bit dull and want something to brighten up the look. An eye-catching piece can make that happen, whether it's on your feet, your arm, or in your accessories.

Accessories play a huge role in transforming your style.

Adding a pop of color like vibrant red shoes to your simple white tee and black jeans instantly livens up the outfit. A neon yellow clutch works, too, because it stands out and draws attention. Bold colors are a fun way to elevate your simple outfit and add a little oomph!

1 Wear A Versatile Longline Duster For A Sleek Look


There’s another way to style a casual tee in a black-and-white outfit. A longline duster is a beautiful, lightweight outerwear piece to rock in the spring and summer (when the temperature is below the 90s).

The trendy jacket is versatile; it’s casual to wear during the day and classy in the evening. Layering it over a white tee and jeans gives a street style chic look; however, when the jacket and t-shirt are paired with a stylish mini skirt and heels (or booties), the outfit is feminine and flirtatious. It’s a great piece for a date night. If you don’t own one, you just might be missing out!
