The basic white tee is a staple of any wardrobe. Some bloggers will argue that a t-shirt is never appropriate for work, but I find that position to be a bit extreme. Because by the time business-casual Friday rolls around, all I want is to be comfortable, and these three outfits prove that you can be stylish and comfortable when wearing a white tee.
For this post, I chose a scoop neck tee by Theory. You could certainly go with a v-neck or crewneck if you prefer, but I like the scoop neckline the best. You also don’t need to drop more than a few dollars on a t-shirt if you don’t want to. Just make sure that it’s a good heavy knit and not too sheer before you wear it to work.
Living the Blues
For you lucky ladies who are allowed to wear jeans to work, I present an easy yet stylish outfit” a navy boyfriend jacket, straight-leg denim and red ballet flats. You could add a belt, long gold necklaces, a chunky bracelet or a printed pump if you want to dress it up. This look is easy and casual without being too casual for work.
Pretty and Polished
I love printed skirts with coordinated cardigans, it’s such a feminine way to dress up on a casual Friday. This outfit is also lovely for a weekend brunch or a relaxed dinner date. And I love that the skirt has a cool geometric print that is flirty but not overly girly.
Relaxed but Professional
I believe Capitol Hill Barbie once said that a pencil skirt, t-shirt and statement necklace was her “summer uniform,” and why not? The look is effortless and casual but still dressy enough for a professional workspace like a law firm or a Hill office. And how utterly fabulous is that Kate Spade necklace? Lovesit!
