Zoe Kravitz Shows How to Get More Life Out of Your Summer Tops and Dresses

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.

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.
