It's all in the white tee

Thursday, July 14, 2011


According to my friend Amy, the one thing all girls should have in their closet is a set of plain white tees. She swears by planning out most of her outfits around it. White tee is so universal that you can mix it with patterns, bold colours or keep it simple with a pair of jeans and red flats. In each of those set-ups you will be stylish yet natural, feel comfortable and look effortless. Do you agree or disagree with Amy? Darlings, do you have any fashion tips you would like to share with us? xo

P.S: Another cutie in white!

Oh! A new white tee shirt that fits just-so...

All of mine end up tie-dyed... my husband is a tie-dyer... lol.

Absolutely. You can't beat a good staple to dress up and down and all around! ;-)

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

I totally agree; White tees are a must! Actually, I think a set of plain t-shirts in several solid colors really help make a great base for your wardrobe! I found a Banana Republic t-shirt that fits me perfectly, so I've purchased it in several different colors, including white!

There is absolutely nothing more important than a white shirt! Nothing is more versatile and classic than plain white tees :)

i live in white tees and tanks...it's classic and effortless. i love all these photos! i'll be linking to your blog tomorrow for my links to love post! :)

Stephanie said...

Agreed! I had to toss out my trusty white t-shirt the other week and haven't replaced it yet. I feel kind of lost. :-P

SJ said...

i'm a big fan of the grey marle tee. my favourites are the 50/25/25 ones from american apparel (though i think they're overpriced).
but i think your friend is right, you always look good in a white t shirt!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Yes, I totally agree! I also am a big fan of thin black tanks. I have probably 15 of them :)

Hope you're having a great week, lovely! xoxo

White tees are definitely a classic. I think everyone should own white tees in at least a few styles that flatter their body type.

Monica from Hola!design said...

True! I'm still looking for the *perfect* white t-shirt...

The first outfit is perfection! I always thought white and animal print look awesome together!


see you tomorrow!

Bestie said...

i agree AND i am always searching for the perfect one!

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

TOTALLY agree and thank you for the reminder.

I also wanted to say something to you today--as you know, I am a busy mom and sometimes I don't get the time (or make the time) to think about doing things for myself--but it is posts like this from you that point out something SO accessible and doable for someone like me. It makes me feel confident that I don't have to be overwhelmed by fashion. A simple reminder about how chic a white T can be.

You have a real eye for style, Diana and a special way to make it seem so fun and not stressful.

Lo said...

I love how you can make a white tee casual to sophisticated.

Funny thing is I love t-shirts but try to stay away from white! I've never liked how my boobs always looked bigger when I wore white. It's so much easier to stick with the darker colors!

I 100% agree! White t's are lifesavers..

Karena said...

Love a white tee with a little Lycra, not too loose, not too tight!

I couldn't agree more--and the pictures are proof that it's true! White t's are the staple to end all staples. I admit I have a stack of at least 20 to prove it (never want to run out?)

ps-have totally sucked on the blog front lately but so glad I caught this post!

Sage Crown Parker said...

loving the white tank with a braid, simply perfect. my fav part about a white t is they don't last too long and you have to get a new one :)
