Signature Style Series: The White T-Shirt with a Suit

“I’ve always thought of the t-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.” – Giorgio Armani

You may not think of a white t-shirt (especially one as casual as the Old Navy Vintage-Style tee used for this series) as something that can be worn with business attire or under a suit. However, I find myself wearing a white t-shirt to the office at least once a week. Just because it is a t-shirt does not mean it is not office appropriate. If dressed-up and styled appropriately a white t-shirt can easily be worn dressed-up.

Look 1:Business Casual Cropped Suit

Suit 1
Blazer and T-shirt: Old Navy; Cropped Pants: Dress Barn; Shoes: Elie Tahari

The white t-shirt is paired with a pair of cropped pants and a blazer with rolled sleeves.

Suit 1 + Scarf
Scarf: H&M (purchased in London); Earrings: My own

It is accessorized with a printed scarf and black and gold jewelry. The beautiful pattern on the scarf means that the rest of the ensemble and accessories can remain relatively simple.

A simple pearl necklace and earrings complete this simple, classic look.
