Simple yet timeless, you can always count on a plain black t-shirt to make you look good.
It’s no secret that t-shirts are staple items in every wardrobe. No matter who you are or how old you are — everyone owns them. While plain white tees often get all the attention for being a classic, versatile addition to your wardrobe, let’s not forget their darker counterpart — the deceptively simple, plain black t-shirt. Whether you are a man or woman, a black tee goes with everything and it’s a lot easier to keep clean than white! That’s what makes it an essential part of your closet for life as we know it right now. From working out to making grocery runs, here’s how the plain black tee will have you looking lockdown-chic no matter what you do.
For when you’re just kicking back at home.
Whether you finally got around to doing all your household chores or are binge-watching your favorite show, this shirt will have you looking good no matter what you do. For maximum comfort, pair it with a pair of lounge pants and you could even get extra cozy by throwing on a hoodie or a cable knit cardigan for when the weather starts to get a little chilly.
During your workouts.
It’s a universal fact that the color black will make you look slimmer. Well, it’s more of an optical illusion really but let’s look at the silver lining here. When living life in quarantine, you may often end up procrastinating and postponing your workout to the next day. A black tee is perfect for days like this when you just need a reminder of how far you have come and an extra kick in the *ahem* to keep going. You might as well throw on a pair of black work out pants or leggings and really get the illusion going!
While working from home.
Who knew that the once novelty ‘Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day’ would become the norm. Being at home, it’s hard to get into feeling that you are at the office even though technically, you aren’t. This is where the simple black tee really shines. Say you have an important call such as an interview, you don’t necessarily have to get all dressed up for it. Just throw on a blazer over your t-shirt to spruce up and add a little professionalism back into work from home. This way, you won’t have to ransack your entire wardrobe looking for clothes you haven’t touched in weeks! You could even experiment with some funky patterns and show off your fun, quirky side. And the best part is, you can just shrug right out of it afterward and go back to wearing just the t-shirt.
Going out for essentials.
Yes, we are in lockdown but there are still times when you have to make a quick run to the store for groceries or other essentials. The beauty of a black tee is that it’s great as both loungewear and outerwear. The secret lies in how you style it and you can never go wrong with denim. After all, that time spent in sweats, it’s the perfect excuse to finally pull on your favorite pair of jeans or jorts. And if your sweats are too comfy to get out of, try pairing your black tee shirt with a denim jacket instead.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to life in quarantine, it’s important to enjoy some of life’s simpler pleasures. That includes looking good and feeling good! But, it doesn’t mean that you have to go all out and dress up, all you need is a simple t-shirt that goes with just about everything you own and do.
