If you’re going to pare down your closet, it’s helpful to have some clothing pieces that are super versatile. I love clothes that and be worn through multiple seasons, be dressed up or dressed down, and most important of all: are comfortable!
I present to you: the humble black t-shirt.
Why black? Well, let me tell you.
(1) A white t-shirt can look a bit like an undershirt, but not a black one. (2) It’s a neutral color that can be mixed with endless bottoms, layers, and accessories. And (3) A colored t-shirt is can be hard to dress up but a black one can look downright classy with the right accessories.
A black t-shirt is a fabulous wardrobe staple. So for fun today, I’m going to show you a bunch a ways to look fabulous in a black t-shirt!
Bare in mind that I am not a model (note my awkward poses 🙂 ).

Adding layers with a cardigan can make a t-shirt look good enough for work.
