Tee Party: Style Basics


So Anna Wintour was spotted this week at Marc Jacobs NYFW show in a t-shirt and, political agenda aside, I'm all about it. The humble t-shirt is an underestimated style basic in my book and now getting the airspace it deserves. T-shirts, preferably of the vintage soft cotton or plain V-neck variety, are a wardrobe staple for me and have been for a long time. This is partially down to the fact I just love wearing anything made from soft brushed cotton, and partially because I'm lazy and they're such an easy building block to understated style.

Give me a slightly oversized V-neck tee with ripped skinny jeans, a pair of new balance and a wool duster coat and I'm all set for casual day to day wear. Take that same tee, teamed up with a leather pencil skirt and ankle boots for the perfect understated outfit when the sun goes down. One of my most worn items ever, is a grey, slightly oversized v-neck tee that cost all of ten euro.

The style guru’s over at Penney’s have only gone and worked their magic again, with the most gorgeous collection of vintage & retro inspired soft raglan t-shirts in stores at the minute. H&M also have some great reasonably priced cute slogan tee's and if you're strictly an online shopping girl then check out what Brandy Melville are up to in the t-shirt department (these guys do the softest brushed cotton oversized options). Perfect as the weather gets a little warmer or under a leather biker jacket come festival season. High-street favorites right now are looking something like this:
