From lazy Sunday to festive Friday.

Our guess is that you're most likely absolutely bonkers for the sheer versatility of a white T-shirt. Totally valid. You've got good reason to be! Fashion folk don't exaggerate when they rhapsodize about how it goes with anything and everythingit's no surprise that we each own roughly 30 of the exact same thing. Call us diagnosed Hanes 3-Pack hoarders.

All that yammering aside, are you a hundred percent certain you're making the most of this blessedly basic closet staple? Max out its untapped potential with our quick, nine-point guide on how to spin it right for every occasion that'll be coming up on your busy holiday schedule, from lazy Sunday to festive Friday.

Chic Ways to Style a White T-Shirt:

1. Camille Co

We'll start with the epitome of easy casual: a tee, jeans, and sneakers. Camille Co updates and elevates this godsent, failproof look with current touches: Spot that cuffed wide leg, a fun, printed silk neckscarf, and her sleek, minimalist leather tophandle from buzzy South Korean label Gu_De. Effortless sans sloppy seconds.


This time around, Camille spruces up for what might be a nice candlelit dinner out on the town. A leopard spotted slip skirt (ironically) tames the borderline sugar sweet appeal of a raspberry-hued beaded bag and lends a wild side to a classic longline trench coat the color of an idyllic Roman sunset. That, and we're liking how she knotted the hem of her shirt into itself instead of tucking it in.

2. Heart Evangelista

We're positively mad for the literal charm of a gilded gold Versace-esque chain belt, and so is Heart Evangelista. That should be reason enough for you to happily latch on. Style it preppy-meets-glam over a buttery pleated mini and let the resulting melodic jangle herald your grand entrance.


3. Nadine Lustre

Scissors at the ready! Crop yours to a dangerous degree 'til there are mere inches left, advises Nadine Lustre. Ensure coverage—just for safety!—with a chic, barely-there nude lace bralette that's almost begging to be flashed on purpose, then follow through with cool kid tracksuit bottoms. Matching jacket optional.


4. Sandara Park

Or, you could trawl down the opposite end of the spectrum and leave your shirt elephantine oversized. Don it like a teeny minidress with a knit beanie, fluorescent kicks, and long sport socks. Stem-flaunting yet street. None other than Sandara Park approves.

5. Liz Uy

Count "suit up" and "checkmate" as two possible caption options for this particular Liz Uy outfit snap. We'll accept either, but actual the point is that a plaid suit has proven applicable to every situation under the sun, be it a work trip airport meetup or a crisp cum laidback press event.


6. Liza Soberano

Business casual lunch break? Upscale weekend brunch with the gal pals? Liza Soberano says to brandish a cute Dior logo splash tucked into simple, sophisticated belted black trousers. Don't forget to tote along your matching matte leather Saddle and J'Adior mesh pumps, of course. 

7. Sarah Lahbati

When in Paris, it's only natural to do as the achingly a la mode Parisiennes do. Their elusive, oft-copied brand of je ne sais quoi is best mimicked in doses, so as not to appear subpar or parodic...which, honestly, is a crime Sarah Lahbati can't ever commit. She's a master. Copy this fuss free 'fit of a boxy, charcoal gray wool blazer, slim, cigarette cut denims, square nosed Wandler ankle boots, and (our ult Christmas wish) a large, clamlike Bottega Veneta Pouch. We did mention giant clutches the size of Jupiter are a hot topic at the moment. The world is quite literally your oyster.


8. Kathryn Bernardo

And now, finally, the true piece de resistance of this little roundup of ours: Kathryn Bernardo really showing you how it's done, rocking a cropped baby tee to a fancy evening affair as if it's honestly no big deal. We're letting our imaginations run a mile with this one: She may have simply shed her daytime jeans, slipped into this regal red ball skirt, paused for a moment, then declared she'd purposely ditch whatever dressier top she was originally meant to wear. A modern Cinderella fairy tale transformation come true.
