A white tee is something that almost everyone has in their closet, so why not turn the most basic on-hand piece into a statement summer outfit? Although it might not exactly bring an outfit to life, a plain white tee (the shirt, not the band) is like the blank slate of style. You can always opt for this fashion staple that looks good on everyone and easily make it your own with accessories.

Whether you're dressing up for a night on the town or dressing down for a day running errands, style doesn't get any simpler than this. Slip it on for a day off and pair it with Converse for a laid back vibe or layer on a statement necklace for a day full of meetings. White tees truly go with everything, from maxi skirts to sweatpants, and make styling a breeze. 

The white tee gets a bad rep when it comes to style, and it's about time to change that. Make the basic your own by piling on the accessories, experiment with something you've always wanted to try, or pair it with your signature staples for winning style every time. Can you believe that the secret to winning style has been in the back of your closet the whole time?
