For brunch with friends or even for a day out, pair it with white high-waisted shorts.
Finish your ootd with some sandals, if you’re going with the skirt. A pair of flats would look more relaxed with white trousers. You can also swap the sandals with a couple of heels top make the outfit fancier, and evening wear. Who said a white t-shirt couldn’t be business casual?
