White Tee | Black Skirt & Statement Necklace

White Tee Week continues today, with a sassy look for a fun night out. If you’ve missed any of the outfits from this {5 Ways} series, see Day 1 with a floral skirt here, Day 2 with a blazer & bootcut here, and yesterday’s white on white here.

Today I’m swapping out my favorite scoopneck tee for a traditional crewneck style, and paired it with a black skirt and heels, then added some sass with a statement necklace and leopard clutch.

My favorite scoopneck tee would work in the outfit, as well, but the higher neckline of the crewneck allows the necklace to take centerstage. My actual tee is a pricey one (it was a birthday gift years ago!), but I sigh in relaxed contentment every time I wear it because it’s so soft and perfectly fitted. However, it’s not the tee that makes the outfit, but the combination of all the elements, so any white tee will do!
Sugarplum Style Tip: Keep your tee fitted when paired with a loose or voluminous bottom. The goal is to create two contrasting halves.

This look could easily transition from Weekend to Work by swapping in a black pencil skirt, and trading the clutch for a chic satchel bag. And if the necklace is too much for your office, throw on some pearls instead. Which has been your favorite look so far this week? See you tomorrow for the final outfit in the White Tee series…which also happens to be my basic Fall uniform!

    So very chic! The t-shirt might be pricy but good, white tees that fit well are worth the price!

    I'm attending a wedding in October. Could this skirt work then? If so, to dress it up a bit, what type of top? Thanks!

    • It could definitely work…but I'd pair it with a fairly fitted top to balance out the volume of the skirt. And tucked in to show off the wide waistband and exposed zipper in the back. Sleeveless would be pretty, with leopard or colorful pumps! Have fun! xo

    Several of the Nordstrom reviews said that the Vince T didn't hold up well in washing, got little holes in it and that the white was too sheer to wear alone. Do you find this to be the case with yours? It looks fab in pics!

    • I've had mine for several years now…I've washed and dried, and even bleached it a few times, and it still looks new! It is a very delicate-feeling cotton, but so far so good for me. I don't wash it weekly or anything, maybe that's the difference. I can't imagine the tee will stay like-new forever, but I'd expect to get several year's wear out of it. xoxo

    Very cute skirt! I never would have thought to wear a tee with such a "fancy" skirt. I guess the necklace makes it work.
    Are you doing a post on the must haves for fall? Even though it's still hot out, the stores are stocking fall and I'm ready to buy. 😉
