BACK TO BASICS- T-SHIRT STYLING

Jade

During the days when lockdown was in full force, I decided to make use of my time and give my wardrobe a good ol` clean and sort out an unbelievable amount of clothes. I ended up discovering many classic hidden gems that were hiding beneath the piles of 2020 trends, and one of those was a plain white t-shirt. Probably not the most glamorous of all garments you might think, but it really is a must-have in anyone’s wardrobe. Here are 5 different ways to style this staple piece and have you looking slick for summer.

1) ‘Knot til you drop’

Renew your tired old tee into a cute, fun piece by simply taking the bottom of it and twisting it into a knot either in the middle or for an edgier vibe, to one side for a total transformation. By doing this it`ll crop the shirt and cinch the waist in slightly, giving the look a more sexier feel.Pair it up with some high waisted denim jeans or trousers to contrast between the lengths, giving those legs some length!

2) ‘Layer,layer and more layers’

Add a bit more character to your looks by experimenting with different patterns and prints by layering bolder tops over a plain t-shirt or vice versa. Bustier tops, tank tops or even an oversized blazer for some Molly-Mae vibes are perfect for this, if you want to feel a little more modest.

3) ‘Grunge gal vibes’

A plain white t-shirt or even a printed one can be tucked into a either a ripped denim mini skirt or for a night time look pair it with a vinyl or leather looking mini skirt. Pop on a pair of heels to take this look from day to night. Comfort and style, all wrapped up in one. What more could you want?

4) ‘Back to basics’

You can’t really go wrong by pairing this piece with some washed out blue denim jeans and some minimal jewelry for an effortless, summery feel. This ones a classic and won’t be going out of style any time soon.

5) ‘Dress it up’

photo cred: Only Wardrobe

No really. Add a flowy shift dress or skater dress over a simple tee and complete the look together with a pair or chunky white trainers or even combat boots for a daring contrast. Complete with a small mini bag for those fun 80s vibes.
