#NeverBasic

three ways to wear a tee shirt spring summer outfits

No matter the season, a great-fitting tee shirt is a wardrobe staple. It’s the foundation for almost all of your weekend looks, especially in the summer! Dress it up or dress it down, a wear-with-anything tee shirt is just as versatile as a great pair of jeans. But just like denim, finding the ‘perfect’ tee shirt isn’t always easy!

I’ve been buying Old Navy tees for years, but they just re-designed their entire tee shirt collection with better fabrics and new silhouettes. Wardrobe essentials with a luxurious twist… They’re #NeverBasic! There are three fabrics – linen-blend, garment-dyed and soft-washed. The tees are softer and more durable than before! Old Navy has increased the durability throughout the shoulders and perfected the overall fit. They’re designed to have a flattering, comfortable fit that you can wear all day long. (And each tee is tag free!) The tees have been pre shrunk, too. Each tee is also machine washable, which makes them even easier to wear and care for! Check out the full lineup here — they’re up to 50% off right now!

I styled three of the new tee shirts, each in a different way! For the first look, I tied this relaxed tee up into a little knot and slipped on a pair of patio pants. These striped linen pants are too fun… Super comfy and the vertical stripes are elongating, too! You can wear them with heels or sandals depending on where you’re headed… both look fab. PS: If you’re on the hunt for blue and white pants, I’m obsessed with these gingham pants!! They weren’t in store when I was in last, but I just ordered them online. In love!

For the second look, I paired a crewneck tee with a pair of printed shorts, a must-have denim jacket, simple sandals, and a straw hat. This is the ultimate weekend look! Whether you’re headed to a daytime concert, an outdoor air fair, an alfresco brunch, or simply running errands, I love this colorful and casual pairing. PS: These shorts are also available in blue and white gingham!

For the third look, I paired this curved hem tee with a pair of destroyed denim jeans. I love how this tee is a little bit longer in the front and in the back, perfect for wearing with white jeans for a little bit of extra coverage! I topped the look with a little denim vest and went with a pair of classic sandals for an outfit that’s great for a casual night out. (Or even casual Friday if your office is on the creative side!) Such an easy outfit to take you from your desk to dinner and drinks after work! It’s patio season, after all. 🙂

    So tempted to buy just about every Old Navy piece that you’ve featured here! Especially love the striped pants and the gingham pants you linked, and the price of those tees is unbeatable!

    Yep, hard to pick one because all three are in my mind perfect combos for Spring/ Summer but the 2nd one is the one that I can totally see myself wear too. 🙂

    I agree with your sentiments! My wardrobe staples for spring and summer are black cotton tees, chinos, and boyfriend jeans. Love the leather mules from J. Crew.

    Happy Wednesday

    Definitely ran out and bought those pants and even better they were on a super sale! I also tried on one of the relaxed fit tees with them just to try on a shirt with then and I had to buy it! Probably the most comfortable tee I’ve ever had worn. Great picks.
