5 Ways To Style ... The White Tee


1. The Floral Suit
Arguably one of the most hideous combinations in the fashion kingdom; the floral suit. Topshop have some really good summer prints this season, my favourite of which is this blended pastel concoction above. Not only do they have a blazer but by god, matching trousers. How perfect, except my excellent taste is shared and these babies are already sold out. When your outer layers are screaming enough flowers for every bee in the Northern Hemisphere to notice, your white t-shirt comes in useful. Keep the accessories simple too; I went for black, as white seemed a little eugh.

2. The Statement Skirt
Spring's 2012 runways gave us a revival of the statement skirt (hurrah). To style my white t-shirt I chose this tribal invention by Burberry Prorsum, but let us not forget the statement skirts of Proenza Schouler, Prada or Balenciaga. This outfit gives you the chance to dress a little above your age (good/bad?) as the length is cut a little longer. Accessorise with statement jewellery; this is tribal so you get the vibe, wooden bangles anyone? I've finished this off with courts to complete the streamlined feel; moreover if I have to clap eyes on Burberry's hideous raffia wedges once more I will scream or cry.

3. The Dungaree
Yeeehawww. Let's look to the resurgance (which has been slightly exaggerated by me in my own head) of man's oldest denim friend; the dungaree. These flared Stella McCartney babies are all retro and slouchy and perfect and I want to sleep in them all day long. Throw on a white t-shirt under them and you're ready to rock and roll. Plastic orange tie-dye shoes (which we all need) add a splash of colour, along with McCartney's own falabella clutch and sunglasses; keeping it in the family. When in doubt, look to the 90s.

4. The Denim Short
A combo older than me (cough); the white t-shirt and denim short. So let's liven this up, look, denim shorts with crochet! Radical. Unless you've been living under a rock you will have seen the recent hotpant denim short trend; if it's a good or bad trend, I'll leave you to decide. Regardless, this is summer and so denim shorts are our staple. Just so you don't look like everyone else, wear with Sergio Rossi's roped in heels and Mr Lim's Pashli. Street Style in a second?

5. The Jean
This is your all year round staple right? Well it should be. Because you can never go wrong with this. For cooler summer days go for the cropped jean; 7 for All Mankind do excellent cropped jeans. I've styled this as a sort of mismatch of colours and styles because this is how I like to wear basic combos. The pink sandals add a splash of colour, the watch adds a splash of glamour. And the backpack is twofold; it's slouchy and convienient, but also it clashes with the tan. You're not supposed to do it, and so you should.
