Give a gal the perfect t-shirt, and you might change her life. Alright, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but we all own one whether we want to admit it or not. The classic t-shirt has gone the distance within fashion history dating back to the 19th century.
From the turn of the century to the Birth of Cool, the 1950s immortalized the statement basic we know today by the likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando, think East of Eden and The Wild One. In a way, you can say the US Navy pioneered the basic phenomenon as the “classic-tee” can be spotted on everyone from your everyday Joe Schmo to Migos (cue “T-shirt” lyrics here). Needless to say the timeless garment covers the gamut.
Today, the t-shirt is used in a variety of sorts from a casual and pared-back approach to daywear. We love a good high-low styling, so for a daytime look, pair your go-to t-shirt with a high-waisted pencil skirt, and throw a casual pair of minimalist sneakers in to round out the look. And then all you need to do to transform the look to suit your inner night owl, try out a white, chunky block heel, geometric bag, and statement gold earrings. Take is a step further with a bold lip—always the best trick in day-to-night dressing.
