You always need a bold top to stand out in your wardrobe so I opted for this red one. It pairs perfectly with a pair of culottes and I love it. You can dress it up or down, a bold top is the perfect casual complement to prevent the outfit from looking over-the-top. Picture this: a bold tee tucked into dark mom jeans and red heels, yes heels! A gorgeous epiphany of colours. How bomb would it look with this denim jacket from Topshop that I purchased this month?
The striped tee was inevitably going to find its way into this post – I wear them too often but then I do substitute them for patterned tops that easily become obsolete. I did a post last year all about how to style striped tops although I’m not sure if I would approve of the graphics now (how I’ve changed on my blog in the past year baffles me). I literally wear stripes with everything and I have a pair of spotty trousers that I love to pattern clash with – boom look at how stylish I am. I personally wouldn’t say that a graphic tee features in my top t-shirts but I have my eye on a few band tees that would look gorgeous paired with a black slip dress.
It’s not exactly summer weather now so long sleeved tops are perfect for the early winter to wear outside. Layered with a coat like this one from mango or on its own with a pair of jeans they’re just so versatile. I seem to be lacking in the long sleeved t-shirt department as I only own one, a shopping trip is due maybe? I’m going to Italy next month so a little bit of pre trip shopping may have to happen.
The white tee is an essential for any wardrobe and it doesn’t just have to be one, you can have multiple. I wear them so much that I just interchange between two (I lie I have about six but we won’t get into detail about that). THEY LITERALLY GO WITH ANYTHING, so much so that statement needed to be in capitals for emphasis. I read in Vogue a while ago that whilst you should buy more expensive basics, white tshirts are worn so much it’s better to buy a cheaper alternative because they get worn quicker. Again I’ve written a full post with outfit ideas on ways to wear a white tee if you wanted a further read.
Do you have any staple tees? Or maybe a top that you’ve worn to death – let me know!
