10 Ways to Style Your Plain Tee

This week I had the pleasure of being invited to the first "Mind your Business" showcase at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. Seven young entrepreneurs who attended the university were selected to not only showcase their business and brand but to also help anyone else looking to start up their own . I was beyond honored and excited to be selected for the opportunity. When deciding what to showcase when it came to styling at this event, I kept in mind that most participants would be college students on a very strict budget. Immediately I knew that I would select one item that everyone SHOULD have in their wardrobe! Well....they were in for a treat! I decided to select a basic white tee and style it fifteen different ways on the spot. YES. On the spot!

Why a basic white tee? A basic white tee can be purchased almost anywhere for a very reasonable price. Most (if not all) women and men own a basic white tee in their wardrobe. I've noticed that many people become super overwhelmed and consumed by not having a lot of pieces in their wardrobe and fail to realize that it's not about what you have but how to make to most out of what you have.

Today, I'm showing you all 10 different ways to style your plain tee! If you don't already own a plain tee and the 10 items listed on this post...trust me you'll be running to the store after this!
