Styling a Basic Tee: 10 Different Outfit Ideas

Styling a Basic Tee: 10 Different Outfit Ideas

Happy Friday friends!

I have something a little fun planned for today’s post. I like the idea of taking one category of clothing, and finding different ways to style it.

First of all, it shows how versatile one piece of clothing can be, but it also lowers your desire to have.all.the.things when you realize how much wear one piece of clothing can actually bring.

Having a minimal closet really starts with that realization… that I don’t need a ton of stuff because the pieces I DO have can be worn in a lot of different ways.

So with that said I thought I would put together a little lookbook centered around styling a basic tee.

A basic tee is something everyone has, and it’s also one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own.

Now, I styled my 10 outfits with different kinds of tees so no matter what type of tee you have, you can get some styling inspiration, but you could put all of these outfits together with just one tee.

I’ve got some super casual, and some more dressy options so this will cover you for lots of different scenarios.

So since it’s a Friday, and we all have weekending to do (a.k.a more of the same things), we’ll end the chit chat here and get to the lookbook:

    Love this post! I am SO drawn to that Love & Confuse duster – it looks fabulous on you. I’ve messaged them twice about sizing and have not heard back from them. I am between sizes and may just go with your recommendation to size down if they don’t reply.

    Thank you for the style inspo!

      Thanks Lori! It’s a beautiful piece! I would definitely go down a size. I’m between an XS and a S and the XS still has lots of room in it.
