White Tee Styling Challenge

I'm not great when it comes to wardrobe staples. I've always had a bit of a penchant for print, pattern and colour so I often find myself stuck trying to pair a leopard print skirt with a polka dot top. I get bored shopping for simple things and often find myself abandoning my "need" list and heading towards the category of "I don't need this but oh it's so pretty!". Over the last few months, however, I've been really trying to build up my arsenal of staples; white shirts, pencil skirts, blazers, jeans and simple tops. So, when I was asked to be a part of the Collective White Tee Styling Challenge I was excited to see what I could come up with based around everyone's wardrobe staple- a plain white tshirt. The challenge was to create three different outfit, all styled around a gorgeous, soft white tshirt. Here's how I got on...
tshirt- c/o Collective
skirt- Modcloth
boots- Boohoo
leather jacket- H&M
sunglasses- H&M
necklace- Zalando
Oh galaxy skirt, how I love you. This is actually the fourth time I've worn this skirt lately (I am so behind on outfit photos!) and I thought the simple white top was a great way to dress the skirt for daytime without overpowering the print. Of course, I couldn't resist my studded boots even if they make my feet blister!
jeans- Topshop
trainers- Converse
necklace- Topshop
If you see me on a Sunday, this is a typical outfit (I'm actually wearing something similar right now!). There is something about a comfy tshirt, my favourit jeans and converse is perfect weekend fodder.
skirt- Topshop
pink leather jacket- Miss Selfridge
shoes- c/o She Likes
necklace- Topshop
For my last outfit I wanted to do something a little more summery. The tshirt is light and comfortable, so I thought it would be great with a pretty floral skirt and ballet flats. As with the first outfit, this skirt is so pretty and printed that all it needs is a plain tshirt and a pastel jacket to finish it off.
How do you wear your white tshirt? What are you wardrobe staples?

  1. Love the galaxy skirt! I like the way you've styled the t shirt differently for each look.

  2. Everyone always says white shirts/t-shirts are a must, but I don't wear white anything, it either gets really dirty or makes me look washed out and even paler than usual! I have to go for black instead.
    I love the galaxy skirt!

  3. The Galaxy skirt is so cute! I love it. I always mess up my white tees but I need a new one. I love pairing them with a skinny jean. i also have this dark chambray skirt with a studded waist band that goes well with plain tees, and then like you, I love pairing them with pretty patterned skirts.

  6. You can definitely do so much with a simple white t-shirt. This reminds me that I need a new one because mine is all old and dingy. Ew.
    I love love the galaxy skirt with this t-shirt and your pretty floral skirt looks great with it too. So many cute outfits in this post!
