Black & White Forever

A classic, long white vest worth investing in

One can never, ever never go wrong with black and white. I’d been searching for a classic, long white vest for some time now, and I found this one to be perfect with its two-layer detailing. It’s both sophisticated and intriguing with its back slits that open to see a sheer white layer.  

To style a look to take me from day to night, I pared down the fanciness of the vest’s suiting fabric with my all-time favorite black jeans. When rocking a similar outfit yourself, sauce it up by wearing the vest alone (I’d suggest investing in fashion tape) or wear it with a lace bralette/bandeau.  Truly, MKR

Tie A Scarf On It

If anything is off the shoulder, you can count me in.  I mean a dress like this is just so comfortable, so easy and so chic.  It only made sense to complete the look with a bandana silk scarf and my favorite Balenciaga wedges.  I’ve actually had this scarf since Christmas; it was a gift from my husband, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it.  This seemed like the perfect opportunity to channel an inner safari-chic vibe for a super easy summertime look.  Truly, MKR

The Best White T Shirts & 5 Ways to Style It + Our Editor Favorites

July 24, 2015

There’s something so sexy about a simple White T Shirt.  Whether worn alone, paired with a blazer, dressed up with heels or down with sneakers, a great white tee will never go out of style.

I’ve had a recent fascination with all things Parisian (yep, I read this book and am now reading this memoir). I’ve started thinking a lot about owning wardrobe essentials that I imagine Parisian women do.  About having a personal style that evokes confidence and femininity, even on a run to the grocery store.  About wearing items that are classic and comfortable, but never boring.  And a perfect White T Shirt is definitely one of those items. 

Like so many others, I have been on the hunt for the best white t shirts for years, and have owned several favorites by Everlane, James Perse, J Brand, J.Crew and Kit and Ace.  While I’m not one to drop big bucks on designer pieces often, I do believe it’s worth it to so splurge on a wardrobe essential like this if you find the perfect one and plan to keep it around for awhile. But with great versions starting as low as $15, our picks for the best White T Shirts can fit in any budget. 

Check out five of my favorite looks in the slideshow above, along with links to snag yourself. Have you found your ultimate White T Shirt yet?  Cheers, Kat
