Want to make your white t-shirt a bit more edgy? Pair it with your favorite moto-jacket and a chic black skirt like Jessica Alba did in the picture below.
If you’re going for a more laid back look, you can’t go wrong with pairing your white t-shirt with a pair of ripped skinny or boyfriend jeans, and a pair of statement high heels. The jeans keep the look relaxed while the heels give it a feminine, stylish touch. In the summer, wear your favorite pair of open-toe strappy sandals and in the winter, rock your hottest colored booties.
For a more professional and put-together look, pair your white t-shirt with a blazer and skinny jeans. Make the look fancier with cool bangles, a pair of chandelier earrings, and a pair of round, oversized sunglasses.
Last but not least, Chrissy Teigen looks delightfully sophisticated and professional in a white t-shirt that she’s tucked into a pair of skinny jeans. Her kimono jacket and stiletto white pumps give her look an extra touch of maturity and poise.

Christian Louboutin once said, “High heels are pleasure with pain,” and I am sure many women would agree with him, yet they are still willing to withstand the ache if it means looking fabulous. I know I would!
Today, the 4-6 inch heels are no stranger to modern women, but it doesn’t stop there. From wedges to flats to tennies to sandals, women have a wide variety of shoe options. Unlike excessive shopping, no one can blame you for needing those perfect heels that scream, “I am a strong business women!” while still rocking a fresh pair of tennies the next day to run some errands. For whatever occasion, you can find the perfect shoe to pair with any outfit.
In Jennifer Weiner’s In Her Shoes, the character Rose Feller says, “When I feel bad I like to treat myself. Clothes never look any good, food just makes me fatter. Shoes always fit.” Now who can argue with that logic?
Just like the way fashion trends constantly change, shoe styles seem to be doing the same. Carolyne Zinko, in her SFGate article, introduces the “flatform shoe.” Shoe companies who specialize in comfort, such as Birkenstock, Teva, and Mephisto have designed these shoes to be “ungainly, clunky, and downright ugly,” says Zinko. They were not meant to be associated with the idea of “sexy.”
Today fashion is gearing towards comfortable clothing, meaning a more loose and casual attire. In order to keep up with this downplayed clothing style, high-end fashion houses took the idea of the clunky shoe and dressed it up with patterns, metallics, and other dressy materials to produce a new high-fashion shoe.
Zinko talks about the wavering opinions on the new style, saying that some stylists are quick to say it’s a fashion don’t, while others think it is a great new idea that will satisfy the tastes of this generation’s consumers.
While I wouldn’t mind having a high-fashion sandal in my closet, I don’t think I will be open to wearing that Dior high-heeled sports pump any time soon.
The option of having a pain-free shoe that is easy to put on and take off, sounds like a great idea that will most definitely target a more laid-back consumer. However, it is questionable how many women will be willing to say no to those stilettos. Would you?
