My wardrobe essential.. the little white t-shirt

As you can see from the image below,Jil Sander's s/s collection showed that a simple white tee can really make an outfit. Her collection of long florescent maxi skirts expressed a simple, but bold way of dressing. I felt the collection was effortlessly styled and really showed me a new way of wearing my little white tee this summer.

I can't express enough how my collection of white t-shirts have saved many outfit dilemmas on days where I have been stuck with nothing to wear. Whether I team it up with a pair of skinny jeans and a blazer for a date, tucked into a pair of high waisted black trousers for the office or teamed with a pair of leggings and a biker jacket for a gig with the boyfriend. All I can say is I think the white t-shirt gets a hard time when being described as a 'stylish' outfit, when in many cases it it one of the best items for your wardrobe and can make an outfit very stylish.

Some of the best places to try for a classic white t-shirt are ASOS, Mango and Topshop. I would recommend investing in a few really good quality white t-shirts and looking after them. A quick tip if you get those yellow marks under the arms, bicarbonate of soda! Make a paste with water and spread where the marks are, leave for a couple of hours and then wash. You will have a sparkly white t-shirt to wear with all your outfits throughout the summer!
