The cooler days calls for the comfort of a long-sleeved tee. Warm and cozy, a fitted tee is versatile and stylish. Whether you aim a nonchalant everyday look or wish to step away from the norm, a classic tee makes several options possible. Just keep an open mind and stay confident, you'll rock the most unusual looks in no time. Here are five ways to style your tee in the coming days.

With a pleated skirt

Balance the femininity of a ladylike pleated, silk skirt by wearing it with a long-sleeved tee. The tee exudes a casual and nonchalant air and doesn't allow the look to get over girly. Use a slim and fitted denim jacket to tie the outfit together. While ballet slippers are acceptable, incorporate brogues to flaunt your flair.

With printed pants

Take the contemporary and modern route by pairing a basic tee with bold printed pants. In this way the pants standout and the look doesn't get too distracting or overwhelming. Complementing colors makes it easier on the eyes and the feel streamlined. Complete with ankle boots and a chic blazer.

With ankle pants

Give your work wardrobe a casual touch by replacing your button-down shirt with a fitted solid tee and styling it with ankle pants and pumps. A bright and vibrant blazer gives a fashionable twist, while neutrals keep it safe and professional.

With jewel-toned velvet pants

Heading for a date or a party? Use your tee to dazzle the boldest jewel-toned velvet pants in your closet. Think greens, cobalt blues or brick reds. Tuck in your tee and put the look together with a bold patterned silk scarf and neutral shoes. The tee balances the attire, while the scarf accentuates and helps you stay warm.

With camo pants

Sport a utilitarian look by sporting the season's hottest camo pants with a solid tee. Break the sedate feel of the pants by choosing a bold neon hue and finish it up with a beige coat and a bold scarf. Oh yes, don't forget your lace-up boots to top it off!
