Even though I own a closet full of cute tops, I always find myself reaching for an old standby - the white t-shirt. Whether I pair one with boyfriend jeans or a pencil skirt, a white tee is the perfect base for pretty much any outfit.

Want to see what I mean? Here are three trendy and stylish summer outfits that incorporate a plain white tee:

1. White Tee + Short Overalls

Overalls are back in a big way this season, and these denim shortalls are a fab option for warm weather. When paired with a scoopneck white tee and printed sandals, you'll look cool and comfy for summer. Add a pop of color with a teal crossbody bag, then accessorize with braided bracelets. Slip on a pair of retro-look round sunglasses to complete the ensemble.

2. White Tee + Printed Shorts

Patterned shorts are another popular piece for summer, and in this look, a white tee balances out the colorful print. Pick up on the seafoam green in the shorts with these Target sandals, then grab a boho-chic fringed bag. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a pink jeweled statement necklace.

3. White Tee + Maxi Skirt

Maxi skirts have such an effortlessly chic vibe, and this blush-colored chiffon number is no exception. Dress down the skirt for daytime by pairing it with a white t-shirt. We went with an on-trend cropped version, but any tee would work.

Continue the laid-back look with stylish sandals, then glam it up with oversize silver earrings. Finally, pull your hair into a messy side braid, then top the outfit off with a summer-appropriate straw hat.
