“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
The white t-shirt is paired with a pair of cropped pants and a blazer with rolled sleeves.
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.
Look 2: Formal Business Pant Suit
This time around, the white t-shirt is accessorized with a traditional black pant-suit and Nine West snake skin (faux) heels.
A simple pearl necklace and earrings complete this simple, classic look.
How do you wear your white t-shirts with a suit, or dressed-up in general? Please share!

I never considered pairing a t-shirt with a suit. Good idea. Nice pics.

Simple and classic, never goes out of style, accessories dresses anything up!
