The T-shirt that will take you places

1. A T-Shirt That Will Take You Anywhere
Adam Lippes, creator of Adam+Eve, may have created the only white T-shirt you'll ever need. "What's so great about our tees is you can dress them up or dress them down," Adam says. "They can become the foundation of your wardrobe."
Dressed for work

2. The Power Look
This T-shirt is dressed up with a silver-and-coral brocade skirt and a trench coat from Adam+Eve's spring collection.

It is "sort of the 'power-look' for the office," Adam says.
No mere T-shirt and jeans

3. Jeans on Safari
What's the other foundation of any woman's wardrobe? A pair of jeans. Team them with a silver brocade safari jacket from the spring collection…and a white tee.

According to Adam, this look is "perfect for day into evening."
Silver shorts

4. Silver Surfer
The Adam+Eve spring collection includes silver brocade shorts. Along with the signature white T-shirt, this outfit is "perfect for brunch or maybe on vacation or Sunday afternoon," Adam says.
Cocktail party-ready

5. The T-Shirt Gets Dressy
The white T-shirt can get dressy, too.

This lotus-print floral skirt and simple long-sleeve white T-shirt from Adam+Eve will have you ready "for a cocktail party on a summer evening," Adam says.
T-shirt and tuxedo pants

6. T and Tux
You can even take the white T-shirt with you as you dress it up all the way. Pair these Adam+Eve tuxedo pants with a gold-painted linen safari jacket and a white T-shirt. "She could go to the fanciest dinner in that," says Adam.
Fall preview

7. Fall Preview
While white T-shirts practically shout summer, they're great in any season. In the Fall 2005 fall collection, Adam+Eve included a lilac cashmere V-neck sweater over a T-shirt with a pair of cropped pants. "It's great to be able to layer for fall, and these are perfect for layering," Adam says.
Navy pinstripe pants

8. Navy Pinstripe Pants
Looking for another way to incorporate a white T-shirt into your fall fashions? Try these Adam+Eve navy pinstripe pants and a sweater coat that is hand knit in Peru.

"There are more ways to wear this shirt than I knew," Oprah says.
