Ladies, you know the feeling you get when a piece of clothing is so comfy, so versatile and so essential you can't see yourself without it? That's the feeling of a classic white T. Not only is it flattering on practically everyone, but ways to wear it are endless. Dressed up, down or in between, a white T is your ticket to show up fiercely stylish almost anywhere.


With workplace dress codes increasingly relaxed, it's a perfect time to incorporate your white T into your office wardrobe. Even if you work in a super corporate environment, there are ways to effectively pull off this look while looking professional. A pair of trousers, either wide-leg or boot-cut, a stylish work pump, tailored blazer and your white T underneath is chic and appropriate. On the flip side, a well-fitting and figure-enhancing skirt with pumps and a white tee also is office-appropriate and fashionable. Quick tip: To personalize these looks, accessorize to best bring out your style persona.


Weekends were made for comfy, casual wear that you can't get away with in the office. Whether you're running errands, lunching with your BFFs, getting a mani/pedi or just doing a little shopping, you want to look good and comfortable. Cotton leggings with a boyfriend cardigan, ballet flats or flat boots and white tee looks effortlessly put together and chic. Try a pair of your favorite jeans in any style (skinny, boot-cut, trouser, wide-leg), with cropped blazer and pumps, flats or sandals, and a white T to finish off the look. Try T's with different necklines -- V-neck, U-neck, scoop or classic -- to keep the concept fresh.


Don't think a basic white T is glam enough for a hot night on the town? Think again. With its unprecedented versatility, it's is just the thing to give a dressy nighttime ensemble a different look. A pair of fierce sequin shorts and a cropped blazer or dark denim jacket, paired with booties or pumps and finished with a white T, keeps this look from appearing overdone or forced. Another option: Try a miniskirt with a white T, finished off with fishnets, platform pumps or knee-high boots.


A white T is the ultimate blank canvas, making it perfect to go crazy with your accessory choices. Experiment with bright, bold colors; texture; length; quantity; and prints and patterns. White goes great with any color. Gold and silver jewelry look equally fab.
