The humble T-shirt. There must surely be at least one in every wardrobe, gathering dust and taken out only on that rare occasion you decide to go running or (gasp!) the gym. As I was browsing ASOS recently (which I almost never do, obviously…) and on the odd trip to the shops or two (another very rare occurrence, I’m sure you realise…) I noticed that printed t-shirts really are never out of fashion, and are definitely not just for lounging about the house in (You only have to look at Sherin’s fabulous T-Post t-shirt or Leia’s ‘Escaped Convict’ Topshop tee!)
How to Wear It:
The most ubiquitous way of wearing a t-shirt is naturally the t-shirt and jeans combo. Whether an outsized tee over skinnies and ballet flats, with a snugly boyfriend cardi, or a pair of peg jeans, some fancy-schmancy heels and a sophisticated blazer this is always a winner for those ‘I don’t know what to wear’ days.
If you want to try something a bit different though why not go all Marcus Lupfer and tuck your t-shirt into a high-waisted skirt with just the top of the pattern peeking out, or dare to bare your midriff with a cropped t-shirt, plain skirt and thick tights. If this is a bit too cold for you how about a body or slim fit cami underneath to keep those pectorals warm?!
The T-shirt dress is another staple that works great in summer with sandals and sunglasses, or in winter with a warm scarf and woolly tights. If you’re a dressed down kind of girl it’s a great way of dressing up without actually dressing up!

Thanks, Harriet! We must remember never to underestimate the power of a great tee.
