The Trendy Tip For Updating Your Basic White Tee In 2023

2023 is the year for updating your entire wardrobe, and what better place to start than the basic white tee? Odds are, you've been styling it with the same pair of jeans or denim shorts as long as it has been in your closet, but we're here to tell you to shake things up. Instead of reaching for your mom jeans or wide-leg pants, consider popping on a denim midi skirt. Denim skirts have been in the fashion game for a while, but they're about to make an even bigger appearance this spring, says Laia Magazine

Mini and maxi skirts have had their moments, but it's time for the midi to shine. Not only do they look great on everyone, but if you have shorter legs or smaller frame, they can actually make you look taller, according to So Heather. Now that we've convinced you to get your hands on one, let's take a look at how you can style your white tee with this upcoming staple. 

Chuck on a blazer

Completely transform this basic look by adding a long-line blazer (anything shorter will look too professional). Don't stop there — now is the time to layer on the accessories you've been dying to show off; however, be sure to keep everything in the same color family like the woman in the photo above. If you must have a pop of color, choose something complementary. Who knew a basic white tee could look so chic?

Unleash your dark side

Don't forget about dark-wash denim! It might not be as common as lighter washes, but that doesn't mean you should leave it hanging in your closet. Put on your basic white crop top, and you're done. ... Just kidding! This is another fit that begs for accessories. You can play up the dark aesthetic with black boots, a belt, and a handbag, or opt for a more colorful look instead.

Choose a baggier tee for a carefree vibe

If you really want to stay comfortable throughout the day, consider wearing a baggier tee. When you pair an oversized shirt with a denim skirt, it looks effortless and expresses your carefree attitude. Add a pair of sunnies, some slip-on sandals, and a slouchy bag to complete this timeless look.

Give the Western aesthetic a try

Believe it or not, you can still rock a Western aesthetic without looking like you're on your way to a rodeo. The trick is to add a leather jacket, which makes the look edgier and less hoedown-chic. If you can't tell, we love belts, and a double-buckled one is an absolute must. All that's left to do is put on your cowboy boots and add a bag.

Think minimalistic

We've talked a lot about accessorizing, but you can totally wear your white tee and denim midi as they are — just add a pair of sneakers. This is a prime example of the girl-next-door-vibe, and anyone can pull it off. White sneakers really tie the look together, but feel free to choose a different color if white doesn't match your aesthetic. The point is, skip the accessories this time around (trust us, not every look needs them).
