I’m living for effortless outfits at the moment. At the weekends when I’m short on time and running errands, I want to throw something on and run out the door. While I want my outfit to be quick, I still want to look half decent and that can be hard to nail every time.
I seem to go through phases with different fits of denim however high waist is one of my non-negotiable criteria. Whether it’s a slim fit or a boyfriend style, it must have a high waist. Low rise jeans make me feel like I’m exposing myself never mind the discomfort. A high waist conceals a magnitude of sins even if it’s a skinny jean. Paperbag waist are the most comfortable and flexible option and are perfect for an effortless look.
A plain white tee is a classic for so many reasons. It’s my go to at the weekend or on a day off as it works well every time. I don’t need to think about whether it matches the rest of my outfit or if it’s on trend, I can just put it on and get on with my day. This is a premium style from Topshop and I have to say it’s one of the best I’ve ever owned. The arms come to a really good length and overall it’s a really flattering fit.
