Fashion wouldn’t be what it is today without basics, which is why I am a firm believer in having an extensive supply of basic shirts in my wardrobe! As much as I love them, I have to be honest and ask if anyone has as much trouble as I do when it comes to styling a basic shirt? It should be easy, but the endless possibilities of options are almost too much to wrap my head around!

Whether I’m looking to put together a casual or going out look, basics are a key element in making my outfits look complete. So, if anyone has as much trouble as I do styling basics, your worry ends here! Check out below for my 3 favorite ways to style basic shirts:


1. With a Vest
Everyone loves a good vest and basic shirt combo. Basic shirts can be styled with vests ranging from simple to statement — the choice is yours!

2. Stripes and solids
Although a striped T-shirt isn’t really considered a basic item, I’m including it because I love this look. I styled this printed tee with white pants and a black jacket to create a simple, yet stylish outfit!

3. Flannel around the waist
If you couldn’t already tell from the amount of times I’ve worn this combo, I LOVE flannels! It gives me hot and cold options depending on the weather and adds a much-needed pop of color.
