Why the white t-shirt is your summer style saviour

A classic white t-shirt is one of the most versatile piece of clothing in your wardrobe. It will add a touch of street chic to a blazer and trousers for work. It's also the perfect accompaniment to relaxed denim at the weekend. Put simply, a white t-shirt is the key to pulling your wardrobe together this summer. Whatever the occasion, it's hard to go wrong with a stylish white tee. 

Once you've picked up your perfect white t-shirt from George, discover 10 chic ways to style your new buy below...

1. Underneath a dress

Sometimes it's just a little too cold to step out in a dress. Or maybe your favourite spaghetti strap number isn't quite work appropriate. No worries, a white tee is perfect for layering. Just throw your dress over the top and you're good to go.

2. With ripped jeans

The epitome of casual style, a classic white tee should always be paired with denim. Add a pair of heels after dark and you know you're look wil be on point. 

3. Patterned shorts

Prints and patterns can be tricky to style. For a failsafe option, pair them with a white t-shirt.

4. Maxi skirt

A maxi skirt is another weekend staple you can add to your wardrobe this summer.  Flat sandals and a white tee, tied in a knot at the waist, paired with a maxi skirt is the perfect boho update to see you through the festival season. 

5. Fashion-forward shirt

Make your t-shirt the star of your outfit by opting for an interesting cut or intriciate design.

6. Bold accessories

The trick to pulling off chunky necklaces, statement bags and this season's must have shoe is to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Enter a simple white t-shirt and denim cut-offs. 

7. Printed tee

Make a statement and opt for a printed tee.

8. Pop of colour

Pair back bold coloured trousers or a bright skirt with a sleek, white tee. 

9. Chic shorts

Daunted at the thought of sporting this season's embellished shorts? Teamed with a white t-shirt, it's a seriously stylish look. 

10. Co-ords

Wearing a suit never looked so chic when it's one of summer's must-have co-ords and a white tee.
