If you’ve read my past few posts, then you know that I was just in Italy for Milan Fashion Week, and I’ve really been pushing the power of a simple white tank. While I’ve already shared my savvy styling tricks for making the wardrobe essential look expensive and the under-$10 items I wore on repeat with the basic, today I’m slightly shifting the focus and highlighting how different street style stars styled the combination while in Milan.
I spotted the outfit trend nearly every day either arriving or leaving shows, and the common trend among the look was pairing the “boring” piece with statement bottoms. Whether that’s printed trousers that fit like a gem or a cool snakeskin skirt that’s especially on trend, either way, girls in Italy played it laid-back on top with a white tank or tee and playful on the bottom wearing statement prints and textures.
To inspire your next white-tee outfit, I’ve rounded up the best MFW street style moments that can easily be re-created, and all revolve around the one wardrobe basic. Keep reading to see the looks, and let us know how you’re styling a white tank this season using the hashtag #WhoWhatWearing on Instagram.
You can't go wrong with this matching pink set.
Snakeskin and a simple white tee are all we need.
We're into the super-boxy sleeves of this crisp white T-shirt.
An all-white outfit, but throw on a pink blazer.
The oversize blazer lends an extra-laid-back vibe to this Italian look.
Proof a basic white shirt doesn't have to be "boring."
