Styling a T-Shirt

I live in t-shirts. I've been embracing cute blouses more recently, but the plain, well fitted, t-shirt is still my favourite. The only issue is that they can be a little bit plain and boring, and that's no look for a fashion blogger, but there are ways to style a plain white tee - the ultimate staple for any closet - and add some chicness to it.

T-shirt - H&M
Jeans - A Wear
Boots - Tribeca
Bra - Wonderbra
Necklaces - Astrid & Miyu
Watch - Daniel Wellington


First up, you need to wear a good bra. As you know, I'm currently taking part in a Wonderbra challenge to style up 4 different bras. You can see me style the full effects bra here, but the t-shirt bra has been the one I've been wearing the most has been the t-shirt bra. Wonderbra's everyday bra really is perfect for everyday. It's comfortable and has a bit of padding to boost slightly, and it's also very soft. It's one of those bras that you can wear all the time, not matter the occasion and you'll feel really comfortable, as well as sexy (Wonderbra's are all about the sexiness).


Don't forget, Wonderbra are currently running a Haul of Fame competition with stylist Sophie Stevens. All you have to do to enter is upload pictures of yourselves in outfits and say which Wonderbra you'd style it with and how. The winner will get a £1000 shopping spree as well as a session with Sophie.
Check out more on their Facebook Page of via the Haul of Fame website.

The second most important thing to do when styling a plain t-shirt is to add some fun accessories. I have a selection of what I call plain white tee necklaces - which are heavier statement pieces which look amazing on plain t-shirts. I've recently discovered Astrid & Miyu, who specialise in stunning jewellery.


I got some necklace from Atrid & Miyu and I'm loving them. The first one - above - is a perfect statement piece, made for plain t-shirts. It immediately adds personality and glam to an otherwise casual look, and really stand out against the plain white tee.

The second piece I got was a lot smaller and delicate, but I'm absolutely in love with it. It's a super gorgeous little wishbone necklace and it's so beautiful - a wonderful lucky charm.


Astrid & Miyu have a lot of realy pretty pieces, and an amazing mix of statement pieces, alongside more delicate ones. It's one of those sites that has such a nice variety, that there's something for everyone, no matter what your style is. As you can see below, everything is really pretty, and the prices are decent too, especially when considering how great the quality is too.


I love the idea behind the brand too. They travel around the world, looking for some of the best jewellery they can find, and also work closely with independent designers, meaning there is a limited stock of all the pieces. This means that what you decide to buy is more unique and special than if you were buying from the high street.

How do you style a plain t-shirt.

Great post love! It's very useful to know how to style a plain tee, because, like we both know, they are a great base for a functional wardrobe :) I totally agree on using statement accessories with plain tee, that's awesome! :)

Oh, I also wanted to tell you there's a small giveaway on my blog, if you're interested. ;) ♥

omg, I'm actually the same. Being a blogger you'd think wearing a plane fitted T-shirt would be a sin. But there's nothing better than pulling a fresh top out of your wardrobe, and paring it with your favourite jeans!
I love how you've pared it here too!

Ah, I am so in LOVE with your boots; and I adore the way that necklace dressed up this top - it really pulled the entire look together. You look fantastic, Sherin!! :)

Winnie said...

Your little wishbone necklace is so pretty Sherin!

That jewelry is so cute, love the wishbone necklace!

Definitely need a good bra for a t-shirt since the fabric can hang there, you don't want to see bra lines!

I got a tiny gold bow necklace from an event and just put it on to see how it would look. Kept it on because the clasp is small so didn't want to take it off again. But I swear I get SO many compliments about it haha people ask where I got it and I'm like "oh it was in a gift bag at an event" which is awful blogger etiquette.

You could also throw on a vest or blazer for the colder days :)

Love the necklace it really adds edge to the top :)


The not so girly blog said...

we could dress in only T's our entire life. haha. You've paired the simple T, into a great combo :)

lovely post dear -- i love the simple look pointed with the cool necklace~


Hazel said...

You should always wear good under pinnings, get it wrong and it can ruin an outfit. VLP? Yuck. Lacey bra and fitted top? Fail! Wonderbra seem to have every eventuality covered.
I love plain t shirts and don't feel bad about wearing them as a fashion blogger, it's not what you wear, it's how you wear it - with a statement necklace is my preferred choice. Love the one you're wearing here x

Couture Carrie said...

And what amazing jewelry!


Ida said...

Love the way you have don it. I always do it with a cardigan - so simple :)

Harriet said...

This is a great look - I love the way you've used a plain tee to show off some gorgeous accessories!

Imogen said...

I love a white t shirt too if it is well fitted. The fit is the key.

Audrey Allure said...

Love that wishbone necklace! So cute.

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

I agree with you: accessorise is the best way to style simple tees and, vice-versa, simple tees are the perfect 'canvas' to display some greats necklaces or scarves!

Cee said...

The plain white tee necklace - I had to smile when I read that, because I knew exactly what you meant; I have a jewel box full of them, too! I love this one, and your studded boots. Adorable. Definitely brings a lot of style to pretty basic.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Analisa said...

Yes, I agree with all of this! You make the tee look so good, love it with the necklace!
