Hello there and welcome back to another “Reworking my Wardrobe” this time focusing on the humble plain white T-Shirt.
Despite us all staying at home (please, if you can stay home!) I think it’s important to still get up and get ready in a morning. I’ve been working from home for the past four years and making the effort to get ready each morning works wonders for ensuring that I have a productive day.
It doesn’t need to be anything fancy, simply changing into a tracksuit will do, just be sure to get up, shower, pop on some skincare or make up and make the effort to get changed, honestly it will do you good.
Even with nowhere to go I like to make sure I feel like myself so I’ve been styling up outfits as usual and thought it was the perfect opportunity to create part two of my reworking my wardrobe series. You can check out the first instalment here if you like 🙂
A plain white T-shirt is something I imagine we all have in our wardrobes and it’s something that I plan to wear a lot of in the next few weeks as they’re so easy, so comfortable and so damn versatile which you’ll see in this post as I style the same Saturday By Megan Ellaby white T-Shirt up in 5 very different ways!
First up I’m layering up my tee with another Saturday By Megan Ellaby piece, this time a sample that may or may not be launching this year. It was originally a cardigan but I chopped off the sleeves as I felt the design would make for the most awesome knitted vest and I am totally digging it.
A simple jeans and a t-shirt combination is a no brainer of a look but pair it with something layered over the top such as a knitted vest and you’re look is transformed into something a little more interesting. I tied in the red of the argyle design by throwing in some old but totally amazing slip on loafers from Topshop, a striped snake belt from Urban Outfitters and clashed the print a little with a leopard print bag and I am loving this look a lot!
Next we have something a little different but a look I LOVE to do throughout the summer months. I tied up a t-shirt layered over a dress a lot last year, particularly with this look here that I wore time and time again. It’s a look I LOVE to do as it means I get tonnes of wear out of my summer dresses in different, less obvious ways.
I’ve paired the floral dress with my trusty snake print knee boots for a lil touch of print clashing. I've thrown on my most worn piece ever, my leather blazer from & Other Stories and made it a little more dressy with a satin Staud bag. If only we could leave the house for drinks in such an ensemble.
It wouldn’t be a “ways to wear” blog post without a touch of seventies goodness now would it? And this look is one of my faves of the pack, mainly as it means I can wear a number of my fave pieces all together. Starting with my fave vintage find EVER, the pink cotton shirt with the most insane dagger collar! I found this whilst in Cologne last year and I’ve worn it so so much; it’s the ultimate in layering pieces!
The jeans I admittedly bought on a whim after spying them in the ASOS sale but my goodness are they a dream pair. Super stretchy so therefore insanely comfortable and with the most perfect kick flare ever! An impulse purchase I’m certainly glad that I made!
And the shoes, oh the shoes, I think I’ve had these for around two years now and they come out every spring as my way of rocking a more seasonal appropriate shoe. I adore the retro vibes of the patent white, the square toe and chunky buckle detailing, they’re such a fab show for me.
This next look is something I wore a lot of back when I was younger, it’s really rather indie Cindy, if you know what I mean. But it’s a look I still love and still feel very at home in. An A-Line skirt has long been a wardrobe staple and essential for me and I imagine it will remain that way for many years to come. Clashing, once again with a vintage flannel shirt and pairing with a cross body bag and black ankle boot for some contrast, it’s an easy, breezy outfit for rocking at home now and wearing on a casual spring day when we’re able to leave the house again.
And finally, this is a great way to rock your t-shirt on an evening out (when we’re able to have an evening out that is) but until then, rock it for an evening at home whilst FaceTiming your pals. Layering a t-shirt with a blazer is such a chic yet “Oh this old thing” approach to evening dressing and an approach I will never, ever tire of. Tucking your T-shirt into a pair of high waisted corduroy trousers gives a smarter vibe to your plain white tee, particularly when paired with a heeled mule and statement bag combination.
And there we have 5 ways to rock your plain white tee from the comfort of your own home, or bookmark this blogpost for when things return to normal later this year. I’d love to hear what you think of the looks, which is your favourite and what piece you’d like me to style up in 5 different ways next? Stay safe everyone, stay indoors and stay in touch!
