Good Afternoon,

If you ask people what they items they would consider an essential they will probably tell you a plain or basic t shirt. This is especially  true for the summer because this plain top helps you stay cool. Most people usually style this wardrobe favorite with a denim skirt or pants. A white tee and jeans are the uniform of summer for some. But there are so many ways to style a plain t shirt which make it anything but basic! These are just a few ways to spice up your tee for the summer! 


A plaid skirt and a plain top is another summer staple. 
But the red bag and leopard print heels make it different.
