Finding just the right type of white t-shirt can be hard. From fabric to fit to the exact colour (not all white shades were created equal), it's a task finding the perfect one. But what's even harder sometimes is finding ways to make it look so much more than just your basic white tee. Don't worry, we're here to help you; we've got 9 ways you can style your white tee, from accessories to statement jewellery, and look cute and chic (while still being undeniably comfy.)
8 Fresh Ways To Style Your Trusty White T-Shirt Into A Chic Look
Basic White Tee
First things first, you'll need a quality white tee, in case yours needs an upgrade or you need just one more in your rotation of basic t-shirts. This one by Anvi Be Yourself is perfect because it's long enough to tuck into denims but you could also easily knot it up and wear it like a cropped t-shirt. It's also not see through at all and that's an automatic win in my books.
A printed bag is hard to pull off but the best thing to pair it up with is a simple white tee and jeans look so that the bag can shine and, at the same time, elevate the outfit. This one's a tricky bag with a bright red and cheetah print situation but if you've been stalking fashion pages on Instagram, you know cheetah print's here to stay. This, paired with ripped denims and you're good to go. Plus, at INR 399, this is a steal.

One of the easiest (and most convenient) things about white tees is that you don't need to stress about clashing colours because literally everything looks good with white. While you otherwise may be a bit hesitant about putting on a colourful headband like this, you've just gotta channel your inner Blair Waldorf and realise you could never be OTT pairing this up with a white tee.
Dreamy Midi Skirt
An easy way to elevate your look for a casual brunch (or coffee) plan is midi skirts; the silhouette is totally chic and I love that it's as comfortable as a pair of mom jeans because you're not constantly tugging at the hem or fearing wind (the struggle is real, y'all.)
Pro-Tip: Throw on a leather jacket and your day outfit instantly becomes dinner date ready.
When it comes to earrings, "the bigger, the better" is a saying I completely believe in. I love statement earrings with white tees, especially with my hair pulled back so the earrings are total eye-grabbers. These beaded earrings are so accurately called Thalassa Earrings because, god, would they be perfect to wear to the beach. Plus, they're super lightweight which you usually don't get whilst putting on a pair of statement earrings (yay to unhurt earlobes at the end of the day.)

Want to feel like a high fashion model off-duty? It's actually surprisingly easy to pull off, especially since you've already got your jeans and t-shirt ready. Made Insta-popular by Kendall Jenner, double denim feels a bit daunting to pull off and it can be but you just need the right denim jacket that's in a similar wash to your jeans and with a messy bun, you're ready to get papped. I love the detailing on the sleeves here and it's instantly adds some freshness to the look.

I love the look of chunky, chain link necklaces that have literally taken over every jewellery brand at the moment. Whether your white t-shirt has a v-neck or round-neck, this necklace will look good with both and the charms are SO cute. Best thing about this necklace is that while it's certainly "big", you don't just need to wear it with a white t-shirt and could easily wear it with dresses or fancy tops as well.

Easy Breezy Co-Ord Set
White t-shirts are perfect for layering, especially when you've got a printed co-ord set that can easily overwhelm whatever you wear it with. Plus, with how popular blazers are RN, this set can be worn together or as separates so you're getting multiple looks out of it. Our favourite influencer, Tarini, wore her gingham set with a knotted white tee under it and honestly, I can't add anything else to this because it's styled to perfection.
Hold on, you'll need some sneakers to go with this look. Check 'em out here.
Layered Under A Dress
If you were alive in the 90s or are as obsessed with 90s fashion as I am, you'll love this look. Wearing a t-shirt under any dress instantly makes it look so Y2K and cute, especially if you've got a slip dress or dungarees. It's also a really easy way of making your evening dress work during the day or even for work. Tell me this yellow dress doesn't make you feel ready for spring!
