Over the years, I’ve learnt to embrace the simplicity and instant (and insta) cool factor that a white tee can give to an outfit.
I bought a cropped white tee quite a few years ago and loved it but nowadays I want to embrace a more 90s sitcom look by tucking a white tee into some mom jeans. (Well it’s a shame that I ended up selling my 90s mom jeans on Ebay recently), but where there’s a white t-shirt there’s always a pair of jeans that will work just as well.
However, I found this ruffled white tee in H&M for just £12.99 recently after seeing quite a few of the blogging gals sporting it. I instantly loved that the ruffles added a girlie touch to a simple tee. However, for this particular look I wanted to combine this season’s trending styles: metallic and primary colours to really make my simple look come to life. I also wanted to put my Indy Fierce spin on it too, yes I’m all for trialling new styles but sometimes you need to stay true to your own style.
To achieve that, I added my blue stone choker from Topshop, yellow cross body suede bag from H&M and metallic sandals from Zara. A simple white tee really allows you to play with colours in an interesting way that still creates a sophisticated yet playful look for summer.
I also love that the ruffles of my top and fringing of my jeans helps to create a well-balanced silhouette that looks fresh and ready for summer. To keep re-styling your ruffed t-shirt you could always add a slip dress over to keep playing with layers and lengths or just add a simple paper bag skirt to draw in on your waistline and to create a long line silhouette.
