Men's Guide to Dressing Up Plain T-Shirts


Staples in your wardrobe may be left untouched in the wake of all your outfits that you’ve already matched. We are talking about those plain tees that you haven’t worn for a while. You can pair these with trendy outfits and reinvent your look with the existing clothes in your wardrobe. Fashion isn’t always following trends. Your own style statement is fashion too. Be a trendsetter! This 2019, reinvent yourself!


Scrounge through your wardrobe and segregate clothes you don’t wear anymore. We know it doesn’t get more boring than this. But it’s time to do some spring cleaning and get rid of old clothes that you won’t wear anymore and the ones that don’t fit. Donate your clothes to the needy. Motivate yourself to clean out your cupboard on the grounds of philanthropy! You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how many clothes you can actually wear again.

If you’re bored with your wardrobe, you can mix and match your wardrobe and create new styles for yourself. If you don’t believe me go through these trendy yet very simple styles to dress up your plain t-shirts.

Plain t-shirts and jackets
After all that scrounging around, many clothes will resurface. If any jackets make up that number you can pair these with your plain t-shirt and voila! You have another way to dress up. It doesn’t matter if the jacket is printed or plain. Plain tees go with just about anything. If your jacket is plain too you could pair it up with printed pants. Experiment with your look a bit and you’d be surprised at the myriad looks you can sport confidently.

Shirt, plain tee and jeans
When you’re throwing together an outfit with a couple of elements, color coordination is key to carry it off. If you’re going with a shirt, plain tee and jeans together, pair them up with contrasting shades. If the t-shirt is light colored, wearing dark colored jeans and a jacket with it will look stellar. You can wear a plain white tee with any shades of denim and it would still look swell. The beauty of this style is that it looks good on anyone. It’s universal and not much effort goes into it. We won’t tell you how comfortable it is, this is for you to find out yourself. Thank us later!

This look is also good if you’re going on a first date. It’s not too formal and it’s not shabby either. It brings out the best in you. You can check out the blog at https://jasperhollandco.com/blogs/news/what-to-wear-on-a-casual-first-date-guys for more tips on dressing up for casual dating.

Tucked in white tee and trousers

If semi-formal is your thing, this look will really suit you. Put on your white shirt and see if it fits properly. It shouldn’t be too tight or too loose, else the look won’t be too good. Now choose trousers. The beauty of white tees is that you can wear it with any color and it will still look good. Choose well-fitting trousers and tuck the t-shirt in. Since trousers aren’t as thick as jeans, ensure that the tee isn’t bunched up anywhere. Now you’re ready to face the world with a very different look.

Take it one step further. Roll the trousers twice at the hem and wear ankle socks with loafers. You’ll turn heads!

Tucked in white tee and jeans

If you thought that you had no use for that oversized white tee, think again. Oversized tees are not only comfortable but also fashionable. You can wear it out and make a fashion statement rather than using it as a dust cloth. Oversized tees sport an informal look so pair it with jeans. Wear rough wash jeans to complete the informal look. If you have an old pair of jeans you can rub it with sandpaper to create a more rugged look.  Who would’ve thought that you could make a completely new look, like this!

Roll up the jeans to your ankles and go with the 2019 trend of cropped jeans. James Dean used to be a proponent of symmetry. Roll up your t-shirt sleeves as well and show off your biceps. A well-coordinated look shows that you put in some thought into it and looks all the better.

White t-shirt and a leather jacket

Who doesn’t love leather jackets? You must have at least one in your wardrobe. Wear a well fitted white shirt and throw on the leather jacket on top of it. Leave the jacket open. You can wear a pair of jeans with a pair of boots. You’ve completed a classic style. It was much coveted in the ’80s and ’90s.

This look is great for people who are on fit or on the leaner side. The outfit is easy to bungle, and if you have even the slightest doubt that it’s not making the mark, change it. Wear a dark colored tee under the jacket and light wash jeans. Experiment with this look, you might find different ways to wear your leather jacket. Don’t forget to approve of yourself in the mirror after all your efforts!

Plain t-shirt with printed pants

We bet you hadn’t thought of this when you bought your white t-shirt. Put on your white tee with a pair of printed trousers. Printed trousers are tricky to pair but look great when worn right. The right way to wear these is with plain tees and plain loafers. Wear ankle length socks that don’t have much print on them.

The idea of printed pants is that every other piece of clothing must be plain. This compliments the bold print on the pants and keeps your outfit looking good. Adding more prints to the outfit would look gaudy. This look has to be delicately balanced.

Even if you don’t find these apparels in your wardrobe, you can always use the tips in this article for pairing other pieces of clothing. Put on your stylish thinking caps and get matching!
