The more glitter and sparkles I see, the more I retreat to basics, such as simple cashmere and white t-shirts.
I dress for myself, but I know that when I see my friends, everyone looks best in a simple white t-shirt and a good pair of jeans. Boring? Yes, but true.
I hear so many people talking about white t-shirts. It is important to find the fit that works for you and to do this you have to try them on; there are no short cuts. Lots of my friends, who have bigger busts or are shorter, also have their t-shirts altered to fit. Use the Clothes Doctor – they are phenomenal.
Lets start with the most basic; at £3.99 it’s also the cheapest and is from HANES. I buy mine from Ebay. Below, I am in a large, and the best one is called the Liberty. I love the thick fabric and the lazy cut.
Next up is The Cotton Story. Most of the t-shirts are under £20 and they offer a myriad of shapes and styles. Currently they have a pop-up on the Kings Road. If you are petite they have lots of smaller sizes and I guarantee that you will find a style to suit, plus, they do men’s t-shirts too. Size up if in doubt.
I always size up with t-shirts, it just looks more flattering.
Next up is Victoria Beckham; I spotted her classic t-shirt on sale at Coggles, they are super luxurious and are now down to £45 – I have ordered one and will let you know how it looks when it arrives. ( love how she rolls up the sleeve)
Next up is Livotte, I adore the thickness of the fabric. The Monica is my personal favourite and I would size up in this brand.
I know what t-shirt styles suit me and they tend to be crew necks which finish under my collar bone, with a boxy shape, plus, I like a looser sleeve.
