Tips to elevate your shirt outfits

No wardrobe would be complete without a shirt. We all have that one favorite shirt that's been with us through thick and thin, and it's time to add some visual variety. Let's look at some simple tips for turning this wardrobe staple into a seriously chic ensemble.

Add layers

Layering allows for creative dressing at its best. Plus, with a simple addition you can create a completely different outfit. When an outfit feels too bare, a third layer makes it look more connected and adds more dimension.

Take this as an example. Given one cropped shirt, we can simple throw it on, or throw it over a white top and pair with navy shorts. You can wear your favorite shirt outside a tank top, a slip dress, a bodysuit, a camisole - the possibilities are endless.
