The Timeless Tee
Posted on 10 November 2015
#1 Elegant Prints
Pair a tucked printed Tee with a long skirt that tailors in at the waist for this look.
Pair with your favourite pair of stiletto pumps for this glamourous style. For brighter
tops, try a neutral colour for the skirt to put the emphasis on the print. If you're
rocking a plain white tee, choose a vibrant skirt to make this style pop.
#2 Statement Staple
For plain tees, choose a skirt with a point of difference. Skirts with overlays or
assymetric cuts work great for this look. Tuck your top and add a bold statemen
t necklace to match the skirt colour palette. This look can be great for work and
is easy to change up depending on your accessories. For black tees, try gold
jewellery with a white mini skirt and stilettos to really dress this look up.
#3 Looksmart Layers
Got a statement tee with a bold quote? Layer with a long jacket or button up
top and pair with a mini skirt or shorts for this weekend look. Keep your colour
palette to only a couple of shades, and add a statement accessory such as a
purse or even a coloured hat to complete the look. Not only is this look simple
chic, but you can always take your white t-shirts to a design boutique and get
your favourite quote screenprinted on to really personalise this look.
#4 Cool & Corporate
Monochrome t-shirts with leather skinnies or pants never fail to impress.
Keeping your colour palette to 3 colours, make your basic t-shirt look corporate
and expensive by pairing with a well tailored blazer and your favourite designer
shades. The Olsen twins rock this look all the time. Grab a starbucks coffee for
the perfect accessory that'll make you look like you've stepped straight out of LA.
#5 Pretty in Pastels
Style like Taylor Swift but matching your pastel accessories and pencil skirt with
your otherwise plain t-shirt. Add an over the shoulder bag to keep this look cute
and youthful. Textured skirts work really well for this look, as they can really dress
up a plain cotton tee by adding interest to the look. Make sure you add a pair of
heels to ensure your legs look super long if you're rocking this signature swift style.
#6 White Out
Lana Del Rey loves this look - pair your plain t-shirt with shorts or a skirt of the
same colour and either tie your favourite shirt around your waist or layer with a
thinner transparent fabric such as chiffon. Throw on your whitest sneakers and
you've got yourself this head to toe white out look. This is weekend style to
perfection - and best of all, you can even wear this when playing your favourite
sport or when working out.
#7 Cropped & Casual
Co-ordinates are super chic this season, and rocking the cropped tee with a
matching midi skirt will give you a classy look that's great for any occasion.
Accessorise with your favourite hat for festival fashion, or add a statement
necklace and stilettos for a day to night wardrobe change.
#8 Retro Revival
For baggy t-shirts or the wide armed crop (you can even cut your own) - pair with
a full length skirt with some flare for a simple retro look that works in any colour.
Culottes work great for this look as well - just be sure to pair one light and one
dark colour so that this look contrasts perfectly and doesn't get too busy.
#9 Parkside Parisian
For quirky t-shirts, pair with a bright blazer or vibrant cardigan and add a pleated
mini or shorts. This French look translates well to any situation, but is a great way
to dress up an otherwise boring tee. For winter, you can add over the knee socks
to warm up this look, or even throw a scarf on for the perfect cold weather adaptation.
#9 New York Natural
New York fashion is famous for endless layers and pairing colours and textures
together that may seem like an odd combination but somehow collectively create
the perfect coffee club style. The key to this look is layers and fabrics. Pair denim
with wool, mix up your colour palette and don't be afraid to pile on the accessories.
Adding clear lensed glasses will give you that hipster vibe that's so on trend right
now - and your t-shirt under it all, will be the star of this style.
