There’s a certain sophistication to a t-shirt outfit, if done well. And if street style has proven anything this season, it’s that comfort reigns supreme. That doesn’t mean we’re all parading around in our sweats; in fact, it’s just the opposite. Sweatpants have been replaced by loose-fitting, and at times, low-rise trousers (some of us are not ready for jeans quite yet) in an effort to ease ourselves into dressing up again.

The easiest way to style a good pair of well-tailored trousers is with a classic t-shirt. It’s a simple recipe and a pairing that’s both comfortable and stylish—versatile, even. Whether you’re headed to the office, out to drinks with friends, or on a Saturday stroll, just throw on a trouser and t-shirt, and you can leave the rest up to the accessories.

Below, five t-shirt and trouser pairings for this season’s most laidback trend.
