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.
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.
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.
As you can see, it’s SO easy to take your basic tee from zero to hero. I’ve linked some of my favorite t-shirts that are all under $20!
