Show you care (in style)
Borrow from the boys
Liv Tyler flaunts her rock-royalty status by making the hard-rock guys’ go-to look—a band tee, jeans and a blazer—all her own. Hint: It’s her sexy heels, tight-fitting jeans and tiny clutch that keep it girly.
Let a solid tee highlight totally glam makeup
Wear it like a blouse
Leave it to the almighty Kate Moss to put a fresh spin on the most classic wardrobe item ever. You hardly notice that she’s wearing a super-basic T-shirt thanks to the beyond-stylish mix of shorts, tights, knee-high boots and a little cropped jacket.
Have fun with it
There’s a reason why the T-shirt has been a weekend essential since, um, forever: Comfy and colorful, it’s the kind of thing most of us can’t get away with wearing during our normal 9-to-5. So when you’ve got the chance to rock the low-key look, really go for it, like Ellen Page does. Caught on an offscreen day—yet looking every bit the indie gal we loved in Juno—Page wore a bright green tee with a printed flannel, checkered scarf and some worn-in kicks.
If you’re going to get wordy, keep it simple
We get it: Some of those super-cute slogan tees are hard to resist. Just make sure what they say is short and sweet—and printed big—like Sarah Jessica Parker’s CHANGE tee. Otherwise you’re just asking for Neanderthal dudes to stare at your chest to, as they claim, “try and read your T-shirt.”
Use it to dress down an outfit
If she’d worn a glittery or skintight top, Charlize Theron’s edgy outfit—complete with chunky jewels, a dressy blazer, leather leggings and peep-toe booties—might have gone, well, over the edge. But with a simple white tee, her outfit looks perfectly hip.
