It’s the wardrobe staple that never gets old – the basic white tee. Most of us have a collection of them. Whether they’re fitted, short or long-sleeved or slouchy and oversized, we return to them time and time again as a key wardrobe essential for every season. But this summer, we’re dressing ours up a little differently. Using our jewellery, obviously.
Dress your tee up for anything from an office look to a last-minute dinner date with our top jewellery styling tips.
Keep On-Trend with Chunky Chains
We’ve been incorporating chunky chains into our looks for a couple of seasons and it’s still one of the strongest looks for the months ahead. Plus, chunky chains look perfect layered over a plain white t-shirt. Just add jeans and biker boots and your look is complete.
Our Chain Reaction collection is the perfect place to start when you’re on the hunt for some chunky chains in both gold and silver. Try our Figaro Chain Necklace paired with an even chunkier Horseshoe Link Necklace for the perfect balance of chic and edge.
Distract with a Statement Earring Stack
It’s not just about necklaces when it comes to transforming a simple white tee. You can also do it with a statement earring or ring stack. Add a structured blazer and a pair of leather trousers to your white tee outfit and then finish with a bold stack of earrings.
Make It LONG
Another simple but effective way we love to style a plain white tee is to choose super long necklaces to add detail to the space.
Our extra-long Midnight Y Necklace with a single drop is effortlessly cool and timeless to create this look. Or, a classic long pendant like our Greek Warrior Necklace looks eternally chic. Our double drop Swirl Nexus Necklace serves up a contemporary take on the look too.
Big Hoops Always Work
A jewellery staple that always works with a white tee? It’s got to be a pair of big hoops.
Stack Your Wrists
Don’t forget your arms when you’re glamming up a basic white t-shirt. Loading up on bracelets and bangles can create a whole new look and give your white tee some serious edge, perfect for dressing it up for an evening out.
Chain bracelets like our Mixed Link T-Bar Bracelet help to form a chic foundation for any bracelet stack. Then add extra detail through on-trend accents like our Pearl Chunky Bracelet or our Curb Chain Cuff bracelet.
When you pull out your white tee for its next style job this season, think twice about your jewellery. You can totally transform the look of this simple basic with a few bejewelled adaptations. So, try anything from giant hoops to elegant Y necklaces to create a new look from your go-to wardrobe staple.
