Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Go-to Tee

A little while back I started a little blog of wardrobe must-haves, that I called Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials. I worte about the perfect bra, the leather jacket and the lbd sometime ago. But after a week of watching What Not To Wear, and a day full of personal shopping for a friends I decided to keep this little blog with stuff that I think is important for every woman’s closet. But, hey, I will completely honest I am not Stacey London, no guru or a fashionista extraordinaire… I am still learning and just sharing experience, so hopefully I will get to improve my own wardrobe 🙂

So let’s talk about the go-to tee, the one (or more) that you have that are perfect for everything! Paired with jeans and flats for the weekend, tucked in a pencil skirt for work, or bling-ed up with jewelery and heels for the night. I have more than a couple such tops that I absolutely love and wear quite often, so I will suggest similar  🙂

The first one is a light gray tee. It is a neutral and goes with everything, but it is not the typical black. It is good for it to have a bit of detail- be it a pocket, a little embellishment or a funky neckline. The detail helps if you just want to throw it on or gives you further help of how to style it and what to pair it with.

The second one is a simple black tee. Typical right 🙂 I spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect just black tee and in the end found one in h&m that is just amazing!  My thing with the black tees is the simpler, the better, because it is like a blank canvas, you can do whatever you want with it, and most of the time a lot can be done.
The only detail that is important is the neckline. I prefer scoopneck and boatneck lines, but a V-neck is definitely classic.  The fabric is also very important, Splendid use amazingly soft cotton fabrics.
