Call off the search, we’ve found them: the perfect pair of jeans to wear with your perfect white tee. A bold claim, we know, but breaking brand Slvrlake has pulled it off. Husband-and-wife duo Louise and Gary Edgley have created jeans that cinch the waist, elongate the legs and create a perfect peach derrière. Add Balenciaga’s cult Triple S sneakers for a modern fashion masterpiece.
With a suit
Breathe new life into your office attire by layering Max Mara’s sumptuous woolen tailoring over Frances De Lourdes’ second-to-none modal and silk-blend tee – designer Alejandra Echeverria founded the label when she couldn’t find quality T-shirts that met her exacting standards. Finish with barely-there sandals for weekdays, then switch them out for sneakers at the weekend for a look that redefines elevated everyday elegance.
If you’re on the hunt for an outfit that can work for an afternoon of gallery-hopping, a walk in the park and lunch with friends, pair a white T-shirt with this season’s chic neutrals. Loewe’s high-waisted cargo pants are future classics that you’ll wear (and love) for years to come. Put a playful spin on this utilitarian piece by pairing with a woven bag and Valentino’s super-soft leather slides for a timeless combination worthy of style icon Jacqueline Onassis.
We’re hardwired to think of the white T-shirt as an off-duty essential, but it can also be the cornerstone of a great after-dark look. Master the art of hi/lo dressing by pairing a simple tee with Tom Ford’s second-skin pencil skirt. Elevate this unlikely duo with two-tone stilettos then pull it all together (literally) with Alexander McQueen’s Matrix-style waist-cinching belt.
Under a dress
Fashion’s obsession with all things ’90s shows no signs of abating. But nailing this look is about more than just wearing the right pieces – it’s a matter of styling. Take the slip dress: Reformation’s ditzy-print piece nods to the decade, but layering it over a bright white tee makes it work double-duty, creating the kind of boy-meets-girl look that everyone from Kate Moss to Winona Ryder was rocking back then.
