16 Times Celebrities Made T-Shirts Look Chic

They're anything but basic.
Gone are the days where plain white Hanes and hand-me-down band T-shirts are reserved for lazy days. As of late, even your most worn-in tees can be synonymous with being effortlessly chic—it's just a matter of styling. Let these celebs show you how it's done.

Miley Cyrus
The tongue-in-cheek star dresses up her Egyptian-themed graphic T-shirt by pairing it with a leather mini, then accessorizing with a shiny gold shoulder bag, snakeskin heels, and metallic shades.

Kate Bosworth
Bosworth offsets her floaty, mint green Jil Sander skirt with a fitted white tee. The combination whispers glamour (instead of shouting it).

Alexa Chung
Always one for a retro look, Chung styles her white T-shirt cheekily plastered with John Belushi in Animal House by looking to an Audrey Hepburn-beloved pairing: matching black leggings and ballet flats. It's casual, yet totally idiosyncratic-chic.

Anne Hathaway
Instead of going sans top for a full-on plunge, Hathaway looks to a sheer tee to layer beneath her ivory suit for a look that's sophisticated and streamlined.

Olivia Wilde
No stranger to a donning a T-shirt on the red carpet, Wilde wore her neutral textured tee with a printed ball skirt for a weekend-meets-black-tie feel.

Miranda Kerr
Kerr took the jeans and T-shirt look to new heights, by dressing up her marble gray style and skinny denim with a trench coat worn on the shoulders, pointed-toe heel boots, and leather bowler bag hanging on the crook of her arm.

Jordana Brewster
Showcasing the beauty of minimalism, Brewster pairs her sleek white topper with a long, navy column skirt. It's a red carpet-worthy look that could just as easily translate to the office.

Olivia Wilde
Looking to a T-shirt yet again, the star wears her graphic style with a sharp white cape, loose-fitting trousers, and white sandals. It's like the perfect combo of runway and rock 'n' roll.

Rita Ora
Ora makes a case for a casual-cool airport look with a charcoal graphic T-shirt, ripped denim, and sky-high platform boots.

Rihanna
Rihanna makes a statement in style with a "School Kills" emblazoned T-shirt, mini-skirt, and platform boots. We hail this look "punk luxe."

Beyoncé
While recycling her fancy Met Gala 'do, Bey plays up her Guns N' Roses T-shirt and distressed denim with a constructed white cropped jacket and bright red pumps.

Doutzen Kroes
Kroes is an exemplary T-shirt-wearer with this outfit for two reasons. 1) She goes for an ultra-sleek, white-on-white pairing and 2) She layers her shirt underneath a tailored blazer, which is a staple styling trick.

Kim Kardashian
Kardashian rethinks the classic band T-shirt by looking to a style with a slouchy silhouette that shows off her ample cleavage. She tones down the sexy by wearing it with a heavy motorcycle jacket, leggings, and lace-up peep toe heels.

Dree Hemingway
Nothing kicks up a band tee up a few (okay, more than a few) notches by tucking it into a sleek, bold zebra print midi skirt. Hemingway punctuates the look with a bright red pout.

Amber Heard
Heard brings the white T-shirt to Cannes, AKA the most glamorous place on earth, and makes it feel right at home by styling it with a fanciful silver skirt.
