HOW TO STYLE: THE WHITE SHIRT
One of our all-time favorite pieces to pull out of the back of our closets when we just can’t seem to find anything to wear is definitely the little white tee. This baby may have been stolen from one of our SO’s or was a miracle vintage shop score, but we still end up reaching for it each and every time we can’t seem to get creative.
But wearing a simple white button-up can feel a little too boring – how do you spice it up? Luckily for you, we’ve sought out five amazing ways to amp up your little white shirt for the tricky summer to fall transition.
OPTION #1: ROCK IT AS A DRESS
