    While writing a shopping post last year, I came across a T-shirt that instantly caught my eye with its black and white color blocking, brown faux-suede pocket, and price tag that rang in at a coin-friendly $10.

    The shirt seemed like a versatile addition to any closet. And with the tee receiving over 600 five-star reviews, I decided to challenge myself to style eight looks based off it.

    From faux-suede platform sandals to striped tie-waist pants to wingtip creepers, I combed Amazon and a few other sites for the perfect items to pair with the tee. The shirt proved to indeed be a style staple you can rock with endless looks. And we photographed each of the finished outfits to spark a little fashion feels as you plot your own looks with the closet-changing tee.

    Check out all eight of the looks below to give you a little styling inspiration:

    Throw on a pair of denim overalls with a white clutch and platform sandals for a look that'll pair perfectly with your tee.

    "The shirt fits great and is comfortable. I love the material. It's very lightweight and can be worn in the summer. But it is also not too thin and can be worn in the fall and winter with a jacket. It paired well with the rest of my look, seeing that it's a neutral color. The color blocking of the shirt gave the entire outfit a pop. The items were all great quality. But the shirt was still my favorite piece from the look because it's so versatile and can be worn with everything!" —Brittaney Trent

    "The shirt fit really well! It was comfy and easy and didn't feel tight in the arms or anything. My look was styled with it tucked in and it worked really well for that. It didn't bunch up or anything. I was really surprised by how well it paired with everything. I sometimes avoid color-blocked pieces because I find them really hard to style and tend to think they can't be paired with many things other than solids. But this tee was surprisingly adorable with the striped pants! It can definitely be dressed up or down so it wasn't out of place with the pumps. It paired best with the owl bag. I love that bag. I'm a diehard Potterhead and I would absolutely carry that to my next fandom event or in real life. It’s so cute!” —Katy Herman

    “The shirt fit pretty well. It was a little long around the torso, but I'm also on the shorter side. It was insanely comfortable. I thought the jacket in particular paired really well with the shirt. The jacket is so dope. It had a nice rugged quality to it that contrasted with the texture of the shirt nicely.” —Caleb Chin

    “The shirt has a looser fit, which is something I definitely look for in a solid T-shirt. There are just some days when I don't feel like wearing skin-tight clothes, and this T-shirt is the perfect amount of fitted while still being flatteringly baggy. The neutral color blocking means you can practically pair it with anything — plaid skirt included! It looked just as great styled up with heels and a skirt as it did with jeans and a leather jacket. The shirt is incredibly soft and lightweight. And the heels looked great with the entire ensemble and they were comfortable.” —Kayla Sauzo

    “The shirt fit fine! The material is incredibly soft and it has a good flow to it, which makes it an easy shirt to just throw on. I do wish the sleeves were a little longer. The leggings were amazing. The faux-fur jacket felt like heaven. If you want to invest in a statement jacket, this is definitely the piece you should be wearing. And the boots I've actually had forever and are so comfy and easy to wear!” —Elena Garcia

    BuzzFeed / Taylor Miller

    “I absolutely adore this T-shirt. It is amazingly soft. And the faux-suede pocket offered a nice texture contrast to my distressed denim jeans. I usually tuck my shirts into my jeans and slacks, and the length of the shirt wasn’t an issue, allowing me to do that with ease. But beyond the shirt, I have to admit the Tuk creepers were my absolute favorite part of my look. They are super comfy and add some serious attitude to any outfit.” —Treye Green

    BuzzFeed / Taylor Miller

    “The shirt fit very well. It was a little long, but I was able to tuck it into my jeans for a closer look that accentuated my waist! I love a leather jacket, so having the shirt go with the one picked out for me was a match made in heaven. I love a classic, James Dean kind of look, so the jacket was right up my alley. I'm a Levi's girl until I die, probably, so putting on some Lee jeans from Amazon was so surprising to say the least. And the fact that they fit? I was shocked. Sometimes it's hard to find plus-sized clothing on the internet, let alone Amazon. So it made me happy and kinda curious as to what other clothes I can get on Amazon. And although I cannot walk in stilettos — not without a lack of trying — pairing them with the rest of the outfit made me channel my inner Beyoncé and Rihanna, for sure.” —Ignacia Fulcher

    BuzzFeed / Taylor Miller

    “I will say this loud and proud: I love basic things! This includes basic T-shirts that can be dressed up or down. I have tried out many a T-shirt — from cheap to my-dad-would-kill-me expensive. And honestly? I really loved this Amazon tee. It’s made from a super soft, silky material that makes it feel much more high-end than it actually is. Plus, the pocket gives it a little something extra. Definitely the kind of top you’d want to buy in multiples for your wardrobe! It does run a bit big. So if you prefer tighter-fitting clothes like me, just order a size down.” —AnaMaria Glavan
