How to Make Your Wardrobe Go Further: The Basic Tee

How many times have you looked in your closet full of clothes and thought… I have NOTHING to wear?! This happens to me ALL the time. Usually, it takes hours of playing dress up in my closet for me to realize that I have MORE than enough clothes and that I can create endless looks with just the basics. Today on Sweet and Saving, I’m going to show you how to dress up a basic white t-shirt and create a number of different looks with this basic item that I know you all have.

Knot It

My new favorite t-shirt trend is to knot my tee at the front. It gives a looser fitting t-shirt some shape and looks amazing with a pair of high rise denim (I especially love the distressed look).

Add Some Bling

The easiest way to dress up a basic tee is to add some bling! Adding a statement necklace, or bold tassel earrings can take your tee from casual weekend to night out on the town in a matter of seconds with no effort. For V-necks choose a statement necklace with a v-shaped pendant and for crew neck, choose shorter pendants with volume.

Dress Down Your Work Wear

You can dress up your t-shirt, while simultaneously dressing down your work wear by combining your favorite tee with your go-to work bottoms (skirt or dress pants). It’s the perfect GNO or date night outfit. And heck, if your office is casual enough, rock it at work too!

Add a Blazer

This is probably my favorite look for spring. Blazers are like magic.  They are a perfect layering piece and they so perfectly add sass to any item in your closet.

Wear Heels

Again, this is sooo easy! Wear your favorite pair of heels with your white t-shirt and denim and watch the magic happen. With the simple addition of heels you can turn your casual t-shirt and jeans that you wore grocery shopping into a fabulous head-turning outfit with again, no effort.
