The first post on the series of building your wardrobe and getting together all of the basics you need to have daily style. As you have seen from the previous post this year has started for me as one of fresh starts and I guess a clean up and sort out of life. I moved a few times this year and now in the home we will renovate to become the ‘dream house’ so I was forced to be very ruthless in my culling and decisions on what I really wear and what I need to have hanging in the coveted space in the wardrobe(s). Being realistic about what my style looks like and what I am drawn too when I scroll,follow and save also makes it a hell of a lot easier and more efficient when shopping and adding pieces every season.  So lets break it down and start with a piece that I have many of and think that you need many of in all shapes, styles and colors as the glue between the upcoming hero pieces. The humble and forever in style – The T-Shirt.

As it seems we are always on the hunt for ‘The One’ even when we find her another gem will pop up and we give her a chance…. This is good. We need a variety for moments like your boobs are pre period boob job and the deep V is giving up a little too much information or you have been listening to the trainer and beat the urge of another Tim Tam (or you got ghastro which is so much easier) and something more fitted allows for the compliments to flow. Wear what makes your body sing and suits our best bits. As everyone is onto this favourite staple you have linen, knot details and in the way of IRO hole details. This style always worn out of site of any adults over the age of 50 to avoid the same jokes that roll around when you wear your jeans with cut knees and make you bring the best fake laugh you have. I note that it is a very good tee and the linen blend along with Anine Bing deep V are two of my most worn and highly recommend the investment.


Colors – White, grey marle, charcoal, black and nude.

StylesBoyfriend or an oversized fit which I always shop in the boys section for. You will get the length you need and you can roll the sleeves for a little bit more shape.

Vneck and a higher round neck. I prefer a bit of length as I am tall and the curved hem or split side makes for a great front tuck.

Detailed. Knots, splits, holes, layers or low back detail like this LNA Ripped tee take you from day to get away with the jersey goodness paired back with a black midi,blazer and heels. I tried but not too hard esq vibe.

Final note – Price and brands are not always the teller of the good tee. Quality linen blends and organic cotton are always going to wear better but I have had many a cotton jersey from Asos and small Aussie labels that have served me well. If you find one you love get her in a few colors.
