How To Elevate your White T Shirt Look
The crew neckline itself looks much more sophisticated compared to other necklines, so it easily elevates the white T shirt as well.
The neckline stitching and details adds structure and sophistication to your outfits. I honestly love crewneck style of t shirts because I don’t have to worry about how t look smart and structured.
But there are some more ways you can elevate your white t shirt outfits.
Wear With Suit Pants
Suit pants don’t have to be worn just to work or formal occasion. This is also a great way to elevate your casual white t shirt outfit. And they don’t have to be just neutral colors, you can have fun with so many colored suit pants as well.
The structured details of the suit pants balance the casual style of the t shirt. Even if you are thinking of a casual everyday look, you can add touch of sophistication with the suit pants.
Layer with a Blazer
Blazers are an excellent layering and you can wear them all year round by simply swapping the material. And this piece of clothing will also elevate your everyday outfit with the white t shirt.
And because the t shirt is in neutral colors, you can easily wear different colors, patterns and styles of blazers that will also change your overall look. In summer, I prefer to wear linen relaxed fit blazers that are lightweight but look structured as well. And I also add more vibrant colors with the blazer.
But in fall and winter, I love adding a sophisticated spin to my white t shirt outfit with patterned blazers.
Wear with Straight Leg Jeans
I love how the white T shirt and Straight leg jeans outfit formula looks every time. And it honestly does not matter what style of footwear or third layer you put on, they always turn out much more elevated.
The straight leg jeans are much more structured style of denims which add that to your casual t shirt. And you can wear this outfit formula all year round by simply changing the footwear you are wearing. You can also get away with wearing black straight leg jeans in warmer weather by pairing it with a white crewneck t shirt.
Focus on Footwear
I always say this, your shoes can make or break an outfit. And you can easily elevate your white t shirt look, by wearing with it shoes that are elevated. I am not talking about designer shoes at all. You don’t even need to buy them if you don’t want to.
Invest in structured footwear, like loafers that you can wear in summer, structured sandals or even espadrilles that are weather appropriate but will not make you look sloppy.
For fall and winter, boots are naturally the best footwear but wearing lace up boots or Chelsea boots would look much more elevated than round toe or Uggs. The more detail in the footwear, the more elevated they make your outfit.
Ways To Wear To Work
If you have a smart casual dress code at work, white crewneck t shirts are the best essential for you. They look smart and have a casual touch to them by being relaxed. But if you have a bit more formal dress code, you can still get away with wearing them. I am sharing some of my favorite outfit formulas to help you rock a white t shirt to office.

Fall & Winter
How to Look Good in Jeans & White T Shirt
Its all about the details. Even when you are wearing a basic outfit like jeans and white tee, it can feel like you cannot make it look better, but you can absolutely can. I am sharing some of my favorite ways I do it.
I love adding layered necklaces or chunky necklaces that adds more details to the simple neckline of the t shirt. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money in them. Just make sure that the gold color or silver color of the jewelry does not look cheap.
But, it’s important to make sure that we balance it out. If you wear a heavy earring, make sure the necklace is light. And yo can do the other way round as well.
If you are wearing an all white outfit with white t shirt and white jeans, then make sure you add a belt which will create a waistline and also add some details to the look. Belts are my favorite way to elevate denim looks.
I also like to wear watches, that makes you look smart and put together. While a lot of women like smaller watches, wearing a statement piece that has a substantial size always looks great.
Structured footwear like loafers, loafer mules, ankle boots, espadrilles will always elevate your jeans and white t shirt outfit, no matter what style of jeans you are wearing.
And these shoes are comfortable to wear too. I always find that if you are comfortable in your footwear, you will feel confident and look great as well, because style is not just looks, you need to feel it too.
How to Dress Up a White T shirt
You can dress up a T shirt by simply adding elevated bottoms like leather pants, leather skirts for fall and winter. And you can wear satin bias skirt and pleated trousers for spring and summer.
These outfits would be great for party wear, date nights or any other look where you want to look effortlessly chic.
And for your footwear, I love wearing slide sandals that are easy to wear but they look so chic for your white t shirt. I also love wearing espadrilles that look great with anything and add that effortless French style.
I think its all about creating a balance in your look. You don’t have to wear everything all at once.
