3 Tips to Style a Basic White Tee this Summer

SS 052013 EuropeanRoadTrip StyleBoosters TheWhiteTee COVER 1

There are moments in life when a basic white v-neck seems like the ultimate style solution. Like bedtime or the gym for her and under a blazer or collared shirt for him. However, there are ways to dress it up or make a crisp white tee a staple for summer. They’re also comfy, easy to pack and perfect for traveling.

Here’s my TOP 3 tips to style a simple tee from the country side on a road trip to Southern Germany this weekend…

1. Pair it with Ankle Length Pants ~ They’re short for spring and come in bright shades & patterns.

2. Accessorize to the Max ~ The tee is the foundation. Pair it with patterns and add one of my new favorite accessories like this neon, lightweight scarf ideal for Spring & Summer.

3. Super Bright Lipstick ~ MAC has some of my favorite shades like this one by Nicki Minaj

Style Sidenote ~ I saw so many bloggers last week posting about Old Navy’s new white skinny ankle pants and while these pants are a similar fit, pairing them with flats isn’t always flattering. I recommend wearing wedges or pumps for a leg lengthening effect.
