The fact of the matter is, basic tees are extremely simple pieces. They don’t necessarily turn heads on the street by themselves. But that’s the beauty of a basic tee. From simple shirt-and-skirt combinations to more complicated layering tricks, these styling ideas run the gamut. While each ensemble is plenty polished, they all rely on a T-shirt for that extra infusion of cool. Clearly, this staple is worthy of much more than just wearing to sleep or to the gym.
