How To Stand Out In Summer’s Coolest T-Shirts

The good old reliable t-shirt. We all have one....or two, or three, or four. (Let's be serious!) No matter the season, they're a must-have.

Here's the problem: With so many fabulous options to choose from, like rocker, v-neck, and the beloved boyfriend, it can be dizzying trying to pair them perfectly and come up with new ways to make them look, well, new!

GalTime checked in with celebrity fashion stylist Colin McDonald for the 411 on this season's coolest tees (We bet you already have some in your closet!), and how to make them shine this summer.

Rock n' Roll /Vintage Tee: These types of shirts are easily complemented by a maxi skirt in lace or another textured material. If you want to show a little leg, have fun with colored denim or ripped denim shorts.

Nautical Stripes: The key here is mixing in some bold colored or neon denim. This helps to give off the nautical vibe without looked too themed.

Bright/Bold: With a bright or bold tee, try color blocking. Color blocking is huge right now, so any other fun colored bottom can work. You can also add a neutral color like khaki, black, or
 white to balance out a look. Dark denim works great, too!

Oversized/Boyfriend: If the tee is long enough, belt it and wear it as a fun, 
summertime dress. For a more casual style, leggings or jeggings will keep
 you looking relaxed and chic all day long.
