One piece, 6 ways to wear it: how to style a white t-shirt

Super chic outfit ideas you’ll want to try RN created with sustainable brands.

A plain white tee is a real jewel in a women’s closet. Why? You simply cannot underestimate the comfort and versatility of a simple white T-shirt. You can wear it with pretty much everything from gym clothes to dressy skirts. 

Still, trying to come up with many different outfits based around the same piece can be a challenge. 

There’s nothing bad with reusing your old garments. Actually, quite the opposite – it’s better for your wallet and the environment.

Why is white T-shirt a must?

Okay, everyone needs a plain white or slogan tee in their wardrobe. It’s easy to throw on and even easier to style, up or down, day to night. 

It’s the perfect versatile and functional wardrobe staple you can love and wear (almost) forever as it never really goes out of style.

Also, it is so comfy (go for breathable cotton only) and doesn’t require special care.

How to wear it?

White tee paired with jeans and a simple jacket might be your go-to combo, but there’s more to it. It also looks super cool tucked in with relaxed tailoring or feminine skirts, both stylish and wearable work attires (when that happens, of course). Otherwise, you can dress up if you’re only heading out for a walk or going grocery shopping. Or you just want to look chic at home.

And let’s be honest here, a nice outfit can make all the difference.

Here are some chic mood-boosting outfit ideas you can wear over and over again all created with ethical or/and vegan brands as well as sustainable materials and fabrics to show you there’s always an alternative.

Dress up midi skirt
