A classic white 3/4 sleeve tee is pretty much a warm weather wardrobe no-brainer: it's comfy, chic & can be worn in an amazingly diverse number of ways. I took a Splendid supima-cotton sheer shirt and styled it to suit five completely different moods...one for each of your various fashion personalities or tribes!
LOOK:#1 BEACH BABE To give your white tee a beach bum vibe, think worn-in denim cut-off shorts, easy flat sandals and a Cali-girl surfer style hoodie. Toss your sunscreen & ereader in a jute or handwoven tote & hit the sand. GET THE LOOK: Baja hoodie - Proenza Schouler; denim shorts - Ksubi; toe-ring flipflops - Ancient Greek Sandals; woven bracelet - Monica Vinader; sunglasses - Selima Optique (all Net-a-Porter.com)
LOOK #2: GAMINE NERD Nerds are the new black, just like this cute pencil skirt - paired here with some must-have cap-toe ballet flats, your fave worn-in jean jacket & jaunty scarf. Of course, chic geekery requires cute glasses & a satchel to hold all yo' various gadgets - such as a goose-themed iPhone case.

LOOK #3: HAUTE GYPSY Adding a swishly silk full-skirt in a mid-calf length, a hand-crocheted sweater & some colorful chandelier earrings is a fun way to be all boho. Stripey heels & a bookish clutch seal the deal. GET THE LOOK: skirt - Tibi; cardi - Oscar de la Renta; sandals - Christian Louboutin; earrings - Shourouk; clutch - Olympia Le Tan; sunglasses - Thierry Lasry
LOOK #4: ROCK ON Sometimes you gotta get your badass on. Which means badass threads: buckled boots; skinny graphic-print pants & of course a leather jacket, but in red, 'cuz you're a fashionista first & foremost. Which also means tying everything together with really cool armcandy. GET THE LOOK: skinny jeans - Etoile Isabel Marant; jacket - IRO; boots - Toga Pulia; bag - Diane von Furstenberg; necklace - Maria Black (all Net-a-Porter.com)
