If you’re anything like us, you like to get the most wear possible out of your clothes (i.e. you’re all about the cost-per-wear factor of any item). It’s easy with basics like pants, jackets, and work-appropriate tops, but when it comes to your going-out clothes (as in the ones with a little more sex appeal), repurposing them for everyday can be tricky. Enter today’s style secret: By layering a white shirt—whether a T-shirt, button-down, or turtleneck—underneath your going-out garb, you can wear (almost) all your nighttime looks in broad daylight. We’re talking crop tops, deep V’s, camisoles and more. Click through to see how some of our favorite street style stars pull it off—and, of course, to shop some killer layering combos.
