“I wear a white tee, you wear a white tee
The next day catch me with a brand new white tee”
-Dem Franchize Boyz
Who didn’t own a white tee in high school and thought they were cool because Dem Franchize Boyz said so? Yeah… I know you did, so did I. The White Tee has always been cool and extra fly and Dem Franchize Boyz definitely didn’t make it that way first. Legends like James Dean and Alexander McQueen rocked a white tee with epic style. Cool was an understatement for those gentlemen. Just like them, I’m here to introduce a different way to revolutionize the way you wear your white tees from now on.
Adding style to your white tees is totally simple. All it takes is a few little tweaks here and there and voila, you’ll be as stylish as the trendsetters we all look up to.
Here are some helpful tips and looks for you to use to spruce up your white tees this SS16!
the Urbnlook: To add a dapper element to your white tee I suggest starting off with a solid colored blazer and extraordinary pocket square. Any pocket square with bold colors will do. Then add your details to your outfit. My go-to dets are bracelets and watches. Shades are also a great accessory. To finish the look off add printed trousers and leather boots! (it’s okay, boots are still okay for the spring).

the Urbnlook: Relax! If you’re not into dressing up your white tee, I’ve got you covered! The denim on denim look is a no-brainer trend for SS16. Throw a crispy denim shirt over your white tee and find your favorite Levi’s. You now have an All-American look with ease. Prep it up a little and find some nice loafers to complete the look. Just make sure you go sockless or no show socks for this one. It is thawing out for the spring. If you’re feeling trendy, go ahead and wrap the denim shirt around you like it’s the 90s!
