How to dress up your plain white T-shirt

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- You can twist it, texturize it and belt it, but the plain white T-shirt never goes out of fashion.

The nice thing about a simple white T-shirt is that you can pair it with anything -- shorts, jeans, a skirt. While most people consider the plain white T-shirt a casual look, it doesn't have to be.

Allison Friedrichs from the Outlets at Anthem showed Tara Hitchcock a few ways to transform a regular white T-shirt into high fashion, and it's easier than you might think.

Accessories are key, Friedrichs said, and it can be as simple as cute belt. Shoes, too, can dress up a T-shirt.

Add a nice blazer and a pair of dress shorts to a white T-shirt and you have a great casual work outfit, especially during a Phoenix summer.

Another simple option is a vest and skinny jeans. It's a chic look.

A white T-shirt tucked into a high-waisted skirt makes a great outfit  for work or a date. Don't forget to complete the look with a statement necklace.

Outlets at Anthem, which is located on the northwest corner of Interstate 17 and Anthem Way (Exit 229), features 30 to 70 percent off retail prices.

Some of the looks featured Tuesday morning were from Gap Outlet and Banana Republic Factory Store. Friedrichs said they are hosting a special event this weekend. It's called Give and Get. You get 30 percent off and then 5 percent of what you spend goes to Feeding America. Print the Give and Get coupon from Outlets at Anthem's Facebook page.
