The plain pink tee…

FYI: next season Gap is amazing. The perfect pea coat, great denim shapes and dreamy knitwear. But I’m still dwelling on the instore now basics – all hail the classic tee.

What with the return of the 90s (yes, denim skirts have been this summer’s essential and I’ve been loving it), the classic crew-neck tee has turned into a real outfit maker.

 

Really, I want a wardrobe full of Re/Done’s twist on the classic Hanes tee but at $78 it’s not going to happen. So, as always, Gap comes to the rescue with its classic vintage wash tees – and this one in the sale at £5.99!
I went for one in pale pink, as let’s face it, it’s a colour that’s not going anywhere for the season ahead and thought it was a nice change to classic white and it’s such a subtle wash that it makes you look twice. Girly for the non-committals…

 

And if there’s one thing we’ve learnt from streetstyle this season? It’s that a t-shirt is your wardrobe’s new best friend – how to wear that 90s non-forgiving slip dress? Give that summer dress a little more leverage? Wear over a classic tee.
If, like me, stripes are always your thing, Gap have a really strong selection at the moment. I’ve always been a J Crew girl for tees but these might be a new contender.
