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...

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!
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.
pink leather jacket- Miss Selfridge
shoes- c/o She Likes
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?
