A plain white tee is one of my all time favourite things to wear with jeans. It’s one of the most classic outfits that’s easy to wear regardless of style, size or shape. It’s also really comfortable which is always good for those days when you maybe don’t feel so sassy or don’t feel like spending a lot of time deciding what to wear.
Quality is always the main factor when I buy a plain white t-shirt. It’s got to be good as otherwise it simply won’t work. It’s got to wash well and hold it’s shape. Fit is the second most important part and that’s where size and shape do come into play. Buying a fit that flatters your figure is key. I tend to avoid oversized styles although I think they look great on other people. It doesn’t suit me and my petite frame so I tend to go for more fitted or regular styles. The last thing is the shade of white. It’s got to be crisp white with no yellow or off white tones.
I picked up this particular style from New Look via ASOS. I bought in white, pink and black as I love the style, shape and fit and it’s really affordable. The frill sleeves are beautiful and easy to wear day to day, for dress down friday at work or dressed up for a dinner date. It’s a slightly shorter fit which I would normally avoid but it’s certainly not cropped and as I’ve been mainly wearing high waist jeans recently, it works well.
I’ve paired with an oversized grey coat which is super cosy. As the weather starts to change all I can think about it cosy nights in watching TV on the sofa with my soft throw and a hot chocolate. Bliss…
