No matter how you fashion tackle this, T-shirts *are* the #1 staple in the world and we almost ALWYAS wear t-shirts in winter as well. Have you noticed that? If they’re not in clear sight, you’re probably hiding them underneath a sweater.

How to wear t-shirts in winter AND actually show them off?
It all depends on 1) where you’re going and 2) how cold it is, so it’s totally do-able if not actually a coveted look for the past few years. The ubiquity of t-shirts all year round is most likely due to the rise of sports wear as every day wear, and the rise of street-style-like-fashion. Everyone these days is aiming for a casual, relaxed, versatile kinda style, that’s easy to dress up or down, and shows that you made 0 effort yet look like an Instagram star.
The rise of airport style and traveling also took their toll on fashion overall, cause if you’re going somewhere chances of you having a t-shirt on, underneath or just in plain sight is as close to 100% as ever.
So without further ado let’s see a few ways we can wear t-shirts in winter.
1.Style the t-shirt in winter with just a coat!
This look is the classic simple winter street style look you see EVERYWHERE but which slaysssss!!! What exactly do you wear and not freeze?
- jeans + cool T-shirt + fur coat
- check pants + white t-shirt + teddy coat
- all black look with t-shirt + long coat
- all white look with t-shirt + camel coat
- jeans + gucci t-shirt + puffer coat
The secret to nailing this casual but very chic style is to wear just the t-shirt with a very warm and thick coat on. Shoes wise I love how heels look with this type of style, cause it seems more statement and powerful, but you can also keep the whole look more simple and laid back with sneakers, or flat shoes. It’a also a great look if the winter ain’t so cold.
Make sure you wear your fave t-shirts, some thin layered necklaces, or statement earrings and loads of confidence.
2. Layer the t-shirt in winter with tons of clothes!
Okay… this is pretty vague so basically you resort to cardigans, button downs, denim shirts, anything and everything that can stay un-buttoned in the front. To showcase that cool tee right?
- t-shirt + cardigan
- t-shirt + unbuttoned denim shirt + jeans + sneakers
- t-shirt + cardigan + coat
- t-shirt + blazer + coat
You get the idea: the more you have on, the more sophisticated you’ll look, just make sure you let a sneak peak into your tee situation.
3. Oversized t-shirts in winter!
As much as this look is giving me life, rocking it in all its beauty in winter ain’t so easy, cause you’re gonna have to cover that big t-shirt in order to not freeze.
- oversized t-shirt + leggings + a puffer coat for a laid back sporty style.
- oversized t-shirts, like vintage ones are a massive statement + shorts or skirts + a shaggy fur coat
- wear Uggs, sneakers, and even heels if you’re going for that street style vibe.
- wear them as a pyjama inspired look, around the house and take one for the gram.
4. Sporty inspired look for t-shirts in winter
Think going to the gym look without actually going to the gym. This is the perfect look for me. It involves leggings and 0 effort but you kinda pull off this don’t care cool vibe.
- leggings + t-shirt + bomber jacket/puffer coat/coat/blazer/scarf
- uggs + sneakers
- oversized t-shirts, more fitted styles, simple, or colourful/text/logo t-shirts
The key to this outfit is 1) laid back, 2) details, 3) a mix of styles.
So wearing a big blazer over a gym outfit made out of a t-shirt looks sophisticated.
Put a pair of sunglasses on, layer some thin necklaces or a tiny choker, and a fanny pack and you’re one hell of a mf.
Get the look:
The jeans and t-shirt combo is the best combo in the world so it only makes sense it transitioned seasons.
It’s a no brainer look. You can’t go wrong with it, it’s easy to put together, to style, to wear… and it looks so good with just a bold lip, a few jewellery, and a great bag.
So what do you think: are you team t-shirts in winter or not?
