The T-shirt never looked so good

We all have days when we really can't be bothered to get all dressed up and there are some of us who have a phobia for being seen in public looking less than gorgeous and put-together.

Natalie Portman illustrates that a t-shirt and jeans does not have to equal compromising on looking hot.




Gone are the days when T-shirts were just plain boring. Here are a few that have caught my attention....


Go retro in this Psychedelic Dove Peace Tee, $12.80 from Forever 21. It's 100% cotton and features a dove with peace symbol graphic print.

For the Eco-friendly types out there, Ascension makes T-shirts from organic cotton which have been manufactured solely using renewable green energy generated from wind and solar power in fairly traded factories. Even the inks are environmentally friendly too! I love this Geo Tee, £19 - 10% of profits go to the life association charity, to provide clean water. housing and education for children in India. Guilt-free spending :-)
Pair this Layered Girl T-shirt from DKNY (£40) with blue flared jeans to create a 70s look.

House of Holland has a range of really unique and interesting graphic T-shirts. You'll have to pay big bucks for it ....this logo Tee comes in at a whopping £70.

This Elephant Tee (£60) by Lauren Moshi is definitely my favourite. I like the long length and loose fit and I'm smitten with the black and white elephant design. I'm thinking...skinny jeans tucked into black fringed boots. I wonder if they do sales discounts :-)


Show off your playful side in Paul by Paul Smith's Polka dot bow t-shirt, £76. ASOS has similar tees that are more budget friendly. This would look good tucked in to a plain skirt.



If basic tees are more your thing, check out Dorothy Perkins for a variety of colours and cuts. I love this Cherry crew neck t-shirt (£5).

I'm a huge fan of a great tshirt...slightly biased as they've consistently been one of the best selling items at Tiger Tem. Great cut, great colour makes a tshirt look fabulous. Nothing looks better than looking like you don't have to try too hard.

Great t-shirts. I love the elephant as I am often called one, for my memory. :)

I recommend the black over the brown (boots) as they go with more and also blend in better. :)

feeling rather smug sitting here in my tee (with lots of bling bling), skinny jeans, and flats. it just screams effortless chic, doesn't it? hahahaha.

t-shirts are so my new thing and i'm more into tees with screen printed images than tees with tacky phrases. not all...some. so. over. those.

karmaloop.com is def. one of my fave destinations for tees.
