The key to any cute casual outfit is, of course, a white tee. Basically the glue that holds your wardrobe together, a good white tee can be worn with almost anything for an outfit that’s equal parts cute and casual. But, let’s not forget the propensity of white tees to sometimes dress an outfit down a little bit too much.
So, where do we draw the line between casual and sloppy? It starts before you ever pair your LWT (little white tee) with a single thing. It all depends on your tee of choice. Too loose and you’ll look sloppy, too tight is never comfortable, and of course it has to have that perfect flow for achieving the infamous “mullet tuck.”
To satisfy all of the above requirements, look no further than white piko tops. The ultimate LWT for all the right reasons: buttery soft texture, great drape, a choice of necklines. Basically, a white piko top is all you need to achieve the right amount of casual.
So, while this look is generally pretty effortless with the right tee, sometimes great staple items can send your cute outfits into autopilot. To get you out of a rut, here are 5 new ways to pair your favorite white tee.
1. White v-neck piko top + flowy pants
Break from the monotony of the white tee + skinny jeans go-to look. A pair of trousers instantly adds an extra level of style and sophistication to your white piko tops.
2. White piko shirt + skinny jeans
Skinnies and a white tee are really the ultimate go-to cute casual outfit. Take it up a notch with a pair of statement skinny jeans, and metallic loafers.
3. White piko top + mini skirt
Give your cute going out outfits twice as much wear by pairing your favorite mini skirt with a white piko top.
4. White piko shirt + wide-leg jeans
So, we clearly have a penchant for interesting pants and a plain white tee-- and there’s a really good reason for that: It’s cute and comfortable. Plus you look super put-together and not at all like you rolled out of bed thirty minutes before class.
5. White Piko + Pinafore
For all of you high school babes this is the perfect hack to turn any cutout/pinafore into a school-appropriate outfit. Add a silk neckerchief for an added touch of cute French girl flare.
