We all know celebs are super stylish, but it’s even better when they show how real they can be with a style hack, such as Olivia Culpo’s off-the-shoulder trick or Karlie Kloss’s unexpected use for a plain white tank. It’s also inspiring when celebs recycle looks — when they’re teaching us a cool style hack *and* wearing the same pieces multiple times, it’s a total home run.
Zoe Kravitz recently showed off her styling skills and her multiple uses for a plain white tee in not only one but two Instagram posts. In the first, she rocked it out on stage with a striped cami over a tee and cut-off shorts, and in the second she’s wearing a slip dress over that same tee (with adorable red retro glasses to match!). While this ‘90s-inspired look isn’t new, it’s definitely a really great way to extend the life of your slinky, skinny-strapped summer tops and dresses. Here are a few looks to inspire you.
Channel a ‘90s California cool chick in this layered look and get extra mileage out of a cropped tank you might have stashed in the back of your closet somewhere. The tank acts almost as a vest over the tee — let the tee hang loose over the flared jeans for the full effect. A retro mule in a complementary rust color adds to the vibe, while a blue bag keeps it from getting too costume-y.
MIDWEEK DATE NIGHT
That breezy tank you’ve been rocking all summer will bring you into fall when layered over a tee. Tuck the tee into a sexy yet sophisticated black faux leather skirt: You can let the tank hang over or tuck it in, depending on your personal preference. Lace-up flats, a fun necklace and a neutral leather bag keep the whole thing casual yet put-together for a midweek date.
So you bought that cami slip dress and wore it a few nights this summer, now what? Pair it with a plain white tee to take you straight to the office. A large necklace and neutral shoes help amp the outfit up, and a mini cross-body bag can take you straight out for cocktails after you ace your big meeting.
