With a blazer. The easiest way to make a T-shirt look a little more put-together? Throw a tailored blazer over it. Whether you're wearing slim trousers on bottom or a pair of cropped flare jeans, a simple black blazer has the power to completely transform a tee.

If you want to take a notch up, consider a fancier blazer like one with satin lapels or even a sequin blazer.

With a tulle skirt. If you've ever wondered just how to wear a tulle skirt as an adult, here's your answer. Because tulle skirts are so full and festive, it's only right to tone it down a bit by pairing it with a soft T-shirt. If you want to make the look even more casual, wear a pair of sneakers with your outfit; if you want to dress things up, put on a pair of pretty heels.

With a leather jacket. Leather jackets just scream luxury, which makes them a no-brainer when it comes to dressing up a T-shirt. Rather than pair your tee with a classic black leather jacket, consider a leather jacket in a flashier color like gold or even rose gold, which is super trendy these days.

With a pencil skirt. It may seem like an unexpected combination, but believe it or not, pencil skirts actually look quite stylish with graphic T-shirts. Whether you tuck your tee in or leave it untucked with a blazer on top, you'll be pleasantly surprised how chic this ensemble is.

If you're looking for a bit of extra pizzazz, pile on a few layered necklaces of different lengths.

Under a suit. Chances are you have a pant suit in your closet that doesn't get much use. Dust it off and make it work for an ordinary work day by wearing it with a cool graphic or vintage T-shirt underneath.
