Continue our “Back to Basics” series, today let’s talk about the versatile plain white t-shirt. Like a perfect blank canvas, it allows us to be even more creative and encourage us to think out of the box. Its easy-going “personality” really makes it compliments almost anything we pair with.

For a casual yet effortlessly chic look, you can team it with simple black jeans and statement shoes. I especially love this look of Lily Aldridge (above left): the juxtaposition between her edgy coated jeans and sexy, futuristic PVC pumps is so attractive, let alone the classic color theme: the never-failed black & white with a pop of red.

I always admire artistically minded women who can rock the most basic pieces for glamorous events (remember this look of Poppy Delevigne?). In a sea of flashy, sumptuous dresses, Leelee Sobieski’s ensemble (above right) is fresh, unexpected with a nostalgic glamour. Take a hint from her, look for high quality pieces with outstanding design to elevate your white tee!
