Give that T-shirt a makeover

T-shirts by themselves are considered casual and worn for non formal occasions, without any novelty attached to them. They have been reduced from being the epitome of western clothing to a boring cliche. While colours, accessories, and text can perk up the style quotient of a T- shirt, by itself, it still remains a staple that is of no value unless layered.

But we're here to change that by showing you the different cuts and styles of T-shirts.

Different silhouettes can make the difference between wearing it on your pajamas, or on a fun day out with friends.

Off-shoulder: Katy Perry, Beyonce, and even Suri Cruise have been spotted sporting this trend.

You can either invest in one, or drag a  big boat necked tee over your shoulder to modify it into an off shoulder top.

Team up your T-shirt  with tank tops or halters to spice up this outfit.

Polo neck: Polo necked tees traditionally worn by golfers, can also be an interesting switch from the regular round necked T-shirt.

Wearing the T-shirt with a skirt  can be a way to make the outfit a little more feminine and edgy.

Wearing it with coloured or printed pants, can also be an easy option to change the look.

Turtle neck: Made famous by Steve jobs, the turtle neck tee is often considered to be the chicest of all the silhouettes, and makes for an easy transition from casual to semi formal. It can be paired with vests, worn on skirts, or even regular jeans.

V neck: This is the most popular cut besides the round neck T-shirt. It effortlessly transforms a casual outfit into a more graceful one. V-neck can also be paired with scarves and worn full sleeved or half sleeved. Scoop neck : A mix of  boat neck and V- neck, this style has the depth of the V neck, coupled with the arc of the boat neck.

It dips into one's chest, highlighting one's collarbones, and creating a perfect illusion of dainty shoulders if one lacks them. It's a win-win for all.
