With Paris Couture Week well underway, we're looking forward to a wave of exquisite (and fabulously OTT) frocks gracing our feeds. But aside from the sculptural beauty at Schiaparelli, not to mention the ethereal gowns at Dior, it's the pavements outside the shows where we've been getting our outfit tips for summer 2022.

Because as well as the designer labels and 'fashion' moments, an understated wardrobe staple has been quietly making its case as an outfit hero. That's right; the humble white T-shirt has emerged as the ultimate styling hack.

We all know a reliable white tee is a pillar of any capsule wardrobe. But if you need convincing that it's your new best friend, look no further than the street style at the couture shows currently taking place in Paris.

What's not to love about a white T-shirt? Firstly, they go with everything. Wear with your favourite jeans, tailored trousers, thigh-skimming mini skirts, seriously, the possibilities are endless. To ensure you find a style that will prove to be a long-lasting addition to your wardrobe, the main thing to look out for is fit. We love oversized and slouchy tees, as well as neat, fitted, crew necks, but only you will know what will work best with your existing wardrobe.

The great thing about a white T-shirt is its versatility. If you've got important meetings, throw on a blazer and you've got a work-ready outfit in seconds. For casual pub trips wear with leather skirts and shades or if you're off on holiday, with linen trousers and simple sandals for the easiest of holiday evening outfits. They'll also go with all your favourite loungewear for a lo-fi airport outfit or chilled out Sundays.
