Curious to find out some new ways to reinvent T-shirts outfits for my personal wardrobe, I scrolled through Instagram to find the cool looks fashion girls have been wearing. While there’s no doubting they’re still a staple to wear with a basic jeans and T-shirt formula, there are plenty of other stylish ways to wear them. Whether test-driving an on-trend color like slime green, pairing a tee with a micro mini skirt and sheer tights, or layering one under a cool matching set, there are plenty of T-shirt outfit ideas to inspired your style. Scroll on to see stylish ways to wear a T-shirt and shop $10 tees to try the looks for yourself.
