Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Basic tees, have come a long way than just something you throw on to do your spring cleaning. I will be discussing the various styles and ways that you can dress up and dress down an outfit with just a basic tee.

The various styles of a basic tee are as follows ;the tank top, crew neck, A-shirt also known as the “wife beater”, the muscle shirt, scoop neck, cropped, and jersey short sleeve , graphic tees, patterns, prints, tie dye, stripes, hyper color, cap sleeve, long sleeve, and of course short sleeve to name a few.

The most common way a basic tee is worn is with a pair of jeans and shoes to your liking of comfort such as sneakers, flats, sandals, or boots.. I would call this the casual laid back look. Another way of wearing the basic tee is “layering”. This is done by wearing a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve, such as the jersey short sleeve. I prefer this look during the winter months.. The A-shirt is one of my favorites, you can wear it as an undershirt, or just as regular top it can be paired with a blazer and fitted skirt with a cute pump, and a small piece of accessory. It also comes in handy for a work outfit, such as the cap sleeve with a pair of slacks or pencil skirt. The basic tee also comes in various colors, patterns, prints and stripes. So your not limited to just one color.

Where you may you find the basic tee? For the most part anywhere online, at major department stores, small chain stores, and any retailer store in your local area. If you are working with a budget and don’t want to sacrifice on quality its always a good idea to search at a junior department store such as Forever 21, Wet Seal. If you can afford a little more major, department stores such as Dillard’s, Macy’s, JcPenney are not so bad. Now if you are a “label monger” as I like to call people who have no problem with price and can't live without certain labels Lord & Taylor’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom are your best bet .

Now just to recap what was discuss was the multifaceted ways you can use a basic tee. You can dress it up for a date, a night out with friends, or even for work. Of course you also dress it down with a pair of jeans, sweats , shorts etc to keep it casual. Overall the basic tee is a reliable staple in anyone’s wardrobe and can save you in fashion emergencies.
