It has been too long since I did a fashion related shoot outside, so I was so happy this weekend just gone when the weather was too good not to go out and take some photos! This post I am talking about tshirt etiquette. It is more difficult than you realise to pull off a tshirt without looking too casual, or looking like you had nothing else to wear. So in this post I’m going to be talking through my outfit choices while wearing a tshirt, and perhaps the next time you go to your wardrobe, you will have a new found respect for the tshirts in there. This is Tshirt Etiquette, Love Moschino.
The tshirt in this post is from the Love Moschino range, and the website is Tessuti.co.uk. Tessuti is a great luxury boutique with some of my favourite designers so you should definitely check them out if you like this post. My Love Moschino tshirt is a great quality shirt, I always like to have a few higher end tshirts in my wardrobe as well as your standard H&M ones too for lazy days around the house. If I am going to wear a tshirt out, then I will always reach for the great quality ones like this. In the photos above I have chosen to tuck my tshirt into a high waisted pencil skirt, for me this is one of the first rules of tshirt etiquette. Always buy tshirts long enough to tuck in, as there’s nothing worse than a tshirt that is too short for your torso. If you can raise your arms without exposing belly, then you’re ok. I chose a black skirt with a white waistband as this helps to break the black up if you have dark on the top and the bottom. You can do a similar effect white a white belt, and make sure to wear skin colour tights or no tights at all. For me, this look makes the tshirt sophisticated and totally acceptable to wear to work and to go out wearing too.
Moving onto my second look, the ever not-so-simple tshirt with jeans. This look is so hard to create in my opinion. I find that although most of us feel comfortable in this go-to ensemble, very rarely do we look at someone wearing a tshirt and jeans and say to ourselves, ‘that’s a nice outfit’. In this next series of photos I’ve gone and made the tshirt the star of the show, and I’ll tell you how:
I’ve opted to tuck the tshirt into my high waisted grey jeans but just at the front. This helps to show off more outfit, and I think that it gives the outfit more dimenion, not to mention your legs will seem longer this way. I chose grey jeans because this really draws the attention to the tshirt. Colour matching is also something to consider if you have a tshirt on with colours. I’ve matched my lips to the orange/red on the Love Moschino logo. You can also do this by painting your nails a colour which matches too as this helps to bring it all together.
With tshirt etiquette, there’s nothing better than a tshirt with heels. It glams the whole outfit up, makes you feel more dressy and it will guarantee some headturns if you walk with confidence. So my last tip is wear your tshirt with pride. Practically all my tshirts have logos or symbols from Game of Thrones to Star Wars to this Love Moschino tee. I find that tshirts are a great way to express that you are a fan of something, so don’t let it go to waste- do your tshirt justice!
Next time you are thinking of grabbing a tshirt from your wardrobe, give the tshirt etiquette some thought, and see how differently you can style it, own it and rock it!
