1 Base, 6 Outfits: How To Style Multiple Outfits With A White Tee and Black Jeans

|

A white tee and black jeans are just a couple of basics in our closets, but are essential when it comes to having a functional wardrobe. To get the most out of our wardrobes, we need to have several basic essentials in neutral colors that we can use as foundation pieces to create our outfits.

In today’s post, I am sharing how to add different layers and shoes to a white tee and black jeans to create six outfits. There are several styles of outfits in this post, including smart casual outfits you can wear to work and casual outfits you can wear anywhere else! I feature these Black Stovepipe Straight Jeans in the outfits, but these Black Kate Straight Leg Pants are also lovely (40% off for Passport reward members until Sept. 20)! I have the Kate pants in both black and graphite colors and love them!

I created these outfits using foundation pieces also in the women’s Simplified Style®: Classic Casual – A Year-Round Foundation Capsule Wardrobe. In Simplified Style®, there are 400+ outfit combinations for the entire year, capsulea for all seasons, outfit calendars and more!

Outfit 1: Plaid Blazer & Loafers

The first outfit includes this A&F Plaid Blazer and these Sam Edelman Loraine Bit Loafers in the “cedarwood” color. I have these exact loafers and they are SO comfortable and the neutral color goes with so many outfits! These loafers are in my own Fall capsule wardrobe! To complete the outfit, I added this Demellier Black Shoulder Bag, these Amazon budget-friendly gold stud earrings (love the Pavoi brand) and this Gold/Silver Stainless Steel watch (also here on Amazon). I just added this watch to my wardrobe and LOVE it! Because it is stainless steel, I will have this watch in my wardrobe for years to come.

Outfit 2: Short Trench Coat & Leopard Mary Jane Flats

If you like the classic and timeless style of a trench coat, but don’t like the traditional long length, here is the J. Crew Short Trench Coat! I have J. Crew’s long trench coat and the quality is impeccable, so you will love this short style! Mary Jane Flats are trending this Fall and the leopard pattern on these J. Crew Anya Mary Jane Flats are gorgeous! This outfit is complete with this Coach Cassie Crossbody Handbag, Gold Croissant Hoop Earrings and this Daniel Wellington Classic Petite 28mm Watch. I have this watch and LOVE it!

Outfit 3: Denim Jacket and Ankle Boots

I have several pieces in this outfit and highly recommend them! First, the Nisolo Mia Ankle Boots in “almond”, which are currently on sale for 30% off with the code FALL30 (sale ends September 19)! They are very comfortable and come in several colors. See me wearing these boots in the blog post, “Fall Favorites On Sale“. Nisolo has bags and accessories too, including this beautiful Carry All Handwoven Tote shown below in the “almond” color. It also comes in a Crossbody Style!

The ABLE Merly Denim Jacket is my most favorite jacket and it’s the one I prefer to wear. I have this jacket in the “clean wash” and “original wash”. What I love about this denim jacket is that it’s much softer than your usual denim jacket, since it has a blend of cotton/lyocell fabrics. It is a longer length, not cropped or short like regular denim jackets. If you like the traditional length of a denim jacket, then you’ll love the ABLE Bailey Denim Jacket. It has the same soft fabric blend as the Merly jacket. Both of the ABLE denim jackets are 30% off with the code ABLE30.

Outfit 4: Gray Cardigan and Black Mules

This V-Neck Relaxed Cardigan in “hthr pewter” is a lovely layering piece for the Fall and Winter and is currently on sale, 25% off for Insiders and 30% for Stars and Icons! (sale ends Sept. 25) It also comes in hickory brown, navy and poppy red colors! The Black Slip-On Mules and this classic style Triple Compartment Satchel Bag are both budget-friendly and at Target! I completed this outfit with these Amazon budget-friendly gold stud earrings (love the Pavoi brand) and this Gold/Silver Stainless Steel watch (also here on Amazon). I just added this watch to my wardrobe and LOVE it! Because this watch is stainless steel, it will last for years to come.

Outfit 5: Ivory Cardigan and Tan Boots

This black and white outfit would be rather plain by itself, but by adding these Stevie Leather Boots in “cafe latte” (40% off until Sept. 20) and this Kress Mini Top Handle Bag in “camel”, it adds pops of color to this outfit! Plus, the shoes and bag are neutral colors that will coordinate with so many of your outfits, dressy and casual! This Cable Knit Cardigan Sweater in “ivory” is a gorgeous layering piece that you can wear during Fall and Winter, and even as a Spring transition piece! This cardigan also comes in a navy color that is absolutely lovely.

Outfit 6: Lady Cardigan Sweater and Cap Toe Pumps

This outfit is inspired by Chanel with the tweed pattern Lady Cardigan Sweater and the Cap Toe Slingback Pumps! You will look chic wearing this outfit! This outfit is completed with the NEW Demellier Phoenix Quilted Shoulder Bag in “black smooth” (also a Chanel-inspired style), Amazon budget-friendly gold stud earrings (love the Pavoi brand) and Gold Pendant Halo Necklace; I have this necklace in gold & silver tones and wear them several times every week!
