Five ways to dress up your white t-shirt

The white t-shirt is the quintessential piece in every girl’s closet. It is hardworking and versatile, and can be worn to pretty much any occasion. I liked the idea of wearing a white t-shirt for an entire week, which is why I came up with this shoot. With the help of the Pormada team (Alyssa, Kaye and Erica helped me style, while Miguel photographed me) I discovered five different ways to wear a white t-shirt (I know, I’m two days short of a week). I really had fun coming up with these looks, especially as I had the full support of my team (the girls lent me pieces from their own closets). This proves that you always have something to wear, even when you’re having an I-have-nothing-to-wear day. You just have to be a little creative!

While this might not hold up in a super corporate setting (you might need to throw on a blazer, lose the slit and change your heels to pumps if your office is conservative), you have to admit, this is a pretty good attempt at wearing a t-shirt to the office. This can also work for a casual dinner date or meeting, again, depending on your line of work. (Watch, Marc Coblen; heels, Charles & Keith)

Pair your white tee with harem pants, stylish heels (Adrianna Papell from SM Shoe Department), a gold watch, a carry-all bag (Alexander Wang) and a hat (Vans) and you’re sure to emanate style all day.

    Hmmm…this post made me realise I don’t own any plain white t-shirts. I have lots of plain white singlets though.
