For us, a white tee is a closet essential because of its versatility. It is universally flattering and makes an excellent base for all outfits, becoming a must-have for us for years and years – a far cry from its original use of being a "lazy Sunday" or workout top. In fact, even our favourite modern style icons love to rock a white tee

Want to learn new ways on how you can style your own LWT (little white tee)? Keep reading below for our seven tips on how to elevate your look with this wardrobe staple.

With the 90’s aesthetic back in full force this year, tons of style stars have been sporting a white tee under a simple dress. To stand out from the crowd, instead of wearing it under a simple black or red dress, opt for something bold like this purple velvet dress. It’s eye-catching and can be taken from day to night.

Tucking a shirt in your jeans is nothing new. But if you "half-tuck" it in, it adds a cool-girl twist that will transform your look into an OOTD-worthy ensemble.

Besides elongating your frame to make you look taller, a white T-shirt with flared pants is great for those days when you want to put in minimal effort to creating your outfit but still look amazing. Pair it with a no-makeup makeup look or a classic red lip, and you'll be ready to go.

Whether it’s a jacket, skirt, shoes, or shorts, pairing leather with a white tee is a match made in fashion heaven. The materials beautifully contrast, and the finish creates a rocker chick look that’s both edgy and classy.

There’s no wrong way to wear the denim-on-denim trend if you have a LWT to pair it with. The crispness of the shirt’s colour adds a beautiful “break” in the outfit, preventing a look that can overwhelm you.

This year, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are landing on a jolly weekend. With a week left to prep for this grand celebration, we're sure you're pretty busy doing some last-minute shopping and outfit curating.

So to keep your stress on the down-low, we're giving you some outfit ensembles to keep you inspired for the upcoming Christmas weekend.

--------------------------

Chic layers



Aiming for a standout look this Christmas? Take advantage of the chilly weather and play around with textures and pieces by layering. Plus, if there's a time to experiment with your colour blocks, the cool, festive season is definitely the best one for it. 

Sweet and simple



If you find the festive season to be a tad bit overwhelming, give it a touch of simplicity and subtlety in the daintiest way possible by going for a simple off-shoulder dress and neutral-toned doll shoes. 
Fresh and carefree



Speaking of off-shoulder trends, another option is to go for a refreshing look and stand out from the waves of green and red with a white shoulder-baring top. This colour will give you an extra glow and brightness especially in all those holiday photos. 

A pop of colour



Have soft and muted tones in mind for your holiday outfit? Take it one step further by adding an accessory that gives you that much-needed pop of colour. Matching pastel versions of the shades that are on the opposite sides of the colour wheel are your best bet.


Classic cuts and colours



If you're gunning for a more elegant look that won't look too formal for a casual day, classic cuts and colours will go nicely with the occasion. Our top tip? Choose burgundies and emerald greens, a touch of minimal accessories, and a slitted skirt that's ready for both that classy family photo and a night of dancing and partying with your friends.

As soon as the festive season started kicking off, waves of green and red welcomed us with a bang. With everyone sporting the holidays' signature colour, wearing empowering shades of red can be a bit challenging. With the colour popping up in almost every place and wardrobe, it's easy to run out of ideas as to how you can play with it.

If you're worried about having all the holiday reds wash out the way you're wearing the shade this time of the year, we've got just the ways on how you can stand out with your crimsons this festive season.

--------------------------
 
Wear it on your lips



What better way to celebrate the festive season than by going with a bold lip? If you want to stand out from the myriad of greens and reds this season, save your crimson-shaded fashion pieces for when the season is over and wear this colour on your pout instead. 

Walk like a queen with it



Make a statement this season by playing with the idea of colour-blocking and mixing your bright tops and dresses with a splash of red on your toes. 
--------------------------

Use it as an accent, not a centerpiece


If you feel like you're missing out on all the "red outfit" fun, no worries! One way to prevent your reds from being washed out is by wearing it as an accent rather than going for a full-on red fashion piece. This way, you can still give off that festive vibe, and give more structure and dimension to your outfit without blending in with the Christmas baubles and wall decors everywhere.

Go for layers



With the weather cool and breezy, putting on layers is a practical option. To make your reds stand out this season, matching it up with fashion pieces that have edgy cuts. Mixing and matching with the idea of playful, sleek and chic will give divine results (trust us!). 


--------------------------

Play with textures and prints



Red is a powerful colour. Combined with the loud and bright festive feel of the season, there are more than enough reasons to kick things up a notch and be more experimental with this bold shade. Give yourself the liberty to reach for plaids, wools, corduroys, and other patterns and prints and be surprised at how this will light up and level up your holiday look.
