Dress it Up- You can wear your white tee with a high-waisted skirt and a blazer for a job interview or a nice pair of skinny jeans and heels and you’re ready for a night on the town. Or Dress it Down- In a hurry to class or just not in the mood to get ready? Slip on a pair of shorts or some leggings with your tee for a more casual look.

Wear your white tee with a cardigan or a vest, with fun scarves and necklaces, or layer with colored tank tops for a unique style. You can even add a big belt buckle to make a statement.

There are many ways to make your white tee your own. You can start simple by tie dying or splatter painting your shirt- not only is it fun to make with your friends, but it is also fun to wear. You can grab a pair of scissors and make it a cropped tee, or add fringe to the bottom. You can even cut your t-shirt into a scarf. Make a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and add glitter glue, sequins, rhinestones, patches, and all sorts of other things. To make something even more advanced, transform your tee into a dress for the college that you attend by adding ribbon and fabric of your school colors.

We even see this trend while watching football games, when all of the NFL teams add a little pink to their uniforms.

Most notably you can recognize these brands and stores for their efforts to provide fun pink colored frocks, gadgets, beauty products, and home décor items during this month:
