T-shirts like jeans are a wardrobe style staple. Not only is this closet classic endlessly versatile and effortlessly wearable, but it also happens to be both crazy-comfortable and available at every possible price point. Mixing carefree elegance with a youthful aesthetic, a cool tee is an easy starting point for a no-fail outfit formula that you can wear from a date night to bed and back again. We have rounded up a few of the not-so-basic options that add a little more oomph to this quick and simple piece:
Forever 21 T-shirt (Rs. 1000 approx):
Nothing says carefree like a T-Shirt and jeans combo. Play up the bright hues in the shirt via a neon-yellow shoulder bag and printed slip-ons to elevate this tee from ordinary to awesome. For a more trendy take, opt for pieces like slouchy boyfriend shorts and sexy cage heels.
Indian by Manish Arora Tee (Rs. 2590 ; Myntra.com):
Pack a citrusy punch at your next cocktail party with this bold embellished tee from Manish Arora. Make this quirky piece the highlight of your outfit by teaming it with an all white ensemble of skinny jeans and heels or team it with a flouncy, bright-hued skirt and balance everything out with a distressed-denim jacket and awesome accessories.
Tropical Print Tee (Rs. 1000; Koovs.com):
For an effortless summer look, just add a breezy mid-length skirt and finish off with a little sophistication via a great pair of espadrilles.
Mango T-shirt (Rs. 1790):
Just because it's nighttime doesn't mean you have to kick that T-Shirt to the curb. Dress up the look with simple black pants, pointed pumps and statement earrings for a casually cool play on girls'-night-out gear. Punctuate with a bold red lip tint for an understated sexy look that is always a winner.
Zara Tee (Rs. 2290):
We like to think of this tee as the "TGIF" shirt. Fitting for casual Fridays at the office but equally as excellent for the night at the bar. The appliqués not only add texture but also a strong personality to the simple white piece. Make it a part of a completely monochromatic look by wearing it with white bottoms skinny or wide-legged for a look taken straight out of a fashion editorial.
Slogan Tee (Rs. 800; Faballey.com):
For a slick spin on office attire, tuck this cheeky print tee into a sleek black pencil skirt. Ankle strap heels, structured satchel and a chain link necklace give the finished look its professional polish.
