The Classic White Tee


White tees are wardrobe staples. But they can also cause moms can also get caught in a wardrobe rut. We've dreamed up four ways to dress up your white tee this fall.

For busy moms, keeping well-fitting essentials in the closet is a must. Rooting through piles for clothing that fits and flatters simply doesn't fit into my schedule. I like to keep at least two well-fitting tees on hand (one is always clean!) to help me pull together chic looks that make the most of things I already have in my closet.

My fashion assignment for this week was putting together four accessories that work well with a classic Long Sleeve T-Shirt ($86-$90 from Yummie Tummie). The best part of this mission--I didn't have to spend a dime. The sleek shape of the tee inspired me to dig into my closet and bring out accessories I already owned. Here are two shots from the video:

Mom Mode: For days where I'm simply running errands or hanging out with the kids, I pair my tee with a chunky belt. The belt helps define the waist and is a low-maintenance piece that you toss on and don't worry about the rest of the day. For crisp fall days, layer on a cardigan and pull on slim jeans and riding boots for a pulled-together outfit. This can take you from the playground to the market to PTA meeting in comfort and style.

Entrepreneur Mode: If I've got meetings or events scheduled, I like to look more polished. With a great-fitting tee, like this one from Yummie Tummie, I want to add color. A bold necklace is perfect--try a fresh color (moss green and eggplant feel fresh right now) and a fitted jacket. The slim lines of the tee are perfect for layering--there's no bulk to the tee at all. Another option? A metallic scarf. Loosely loop a scarf around your neck and you've got a blast of color and a sophisticated style. Pair with classic pants and a wedge heel and you've got a look that'll impress clients and have you feeling confident.
