No matter the love-hate relationship one might have with the colour White, this basic tee is a fashion staple item. It gives life to a 70s skirt, and adds class to the most eccentric of outfits – say a colourful embroidered jacket.

Here are 5 ways you may rock the basic white tee to the campus without looking anything close to BASIC at all.

Basic white tee + black jacket + black pants & a polka dot skinny scarf.

Basic white tee + black blazer & denim (don’t forget the pop of red skinny scarf)

Basic white tee + white blazer + denim & colourful neck piece
