Shop Your Closet: Grey Tee

Arguably, the most common closet staple is a simple tee! For me, it’s a grey v-neck, although I don’t discriminate too much when it comes to a t-shirt. It’s an obvious choice for a very simple, no thought necessary outfit. Throw one on with a pair of jeans and sneakers and you’re done. But, a grey tee is also a great option for more dressed up or refined outfits. Below are just a few ways that I wear a grey tee.

Casual Chic

This is an iteration of the most common way that I wear a grey tee – paired with jeans or denim shorts. To elevate the look a bit, I like to pair it with pointed toe flats or even some platform espadrilles. If I’m needing a top layer, I’ll add a field jacket or a duster like this. Simple and easy!

Date Night

Full disclosure, I don’t look like this for our date nights! But if you like to dress things up a bit for a night out, this is a great option. Pairing a casual tee with something more fancy is a fun way to mix things up and still feel like yourself (if you’re most comfortable in a tee, like me).

Weekend Wear

Another fun way to wear a simple tee would be to use it as a base layer for a more interesting outfit. Paired with white denim and a military vest, it’s the perfect option! I added nude shoes and a bag to round the whole look out. I would wear this on a date night, meeting up with friends, or heading out to brunch.

      I’m so glad to hear that, Jeana! I’m definitely trying to add date night or more dressed up options to each of the items that I’m showing, so hopefully you’ll get some inspiration 🙂
