Basic tees are essential to every outfit. Not only can you layer them underneath tops, dress, or cardigans, but they can be the star of the show. Here are our favorite ways to dress up a basic tee:

Tee + skirt

With the hot weather, skirts are a perfect choice. Not only are they light weight, but they look effortlessly put together, without even trying. The Blue Stripe Jersey skirt paired with our white seamless tee is the perfect combo. Here Daisy is wearing nude heels and it creates a very classy and feminine look. This outfit would also be great paired with sneakers, which would create much more of a casual back to school kind of look. This outfit not only is comfortable, but very chic and stylish!

Tee + dress

Pairing a basic tee with a tank top dress is so trendy right now. Above is featured our Denim ruffle hem dress paired with a simple white pocket tee. This outfit is not only school appropriate, but adds a little more versatility and fun into your wardrobe. This is a great technique to use when you still want to wear all of your cute summer tank top dresses, but don’t want to be bothered to wear a cardigan. By layering a tee, it makes the dress not as dressy, and gives the whole look more of an everyday kind-of wear.

In addition to it being an adorable look, the more denim, the better! Denim is so trendy right now. Whether it’s a denim dress, denim jacket, denim top, you name it, it's trendy, and it’s a must this back to school season. Find some of our favorite denim items below.

Tee+ pants

Tees will forever be denims best friend. You can dress up or down any tee! Our White Top with ties on the sleeves is a great example of a basic tee that goes with everything. Not only would it look totally adorable under a tank top dress, but it looks awesome on its own. Add pearls, a scarf, or even just on its own, with the small bows on the sleeves, its statement enough. Shop of some of our more unique basic tees below!
