Basic Yet Not So Basic Tees

strappy tees tshirt


Or harness as some shops call it. You can never go wrong with a basic tee. It is an essential piece everyone needs but as always, I like something different. Something to spice it up a bit and these seemed to have fit the bill! Casual days, date nights or even night outs out, these can easily spice up any outfit and be a day to evening piece. Throwing a blazer over is a favourite.

I always purchase them from Boohoo to get my fix but more shops are now stocking this style. Below are my picks.

There are vest tops and bodysuits in this style too so you’re not limited.

Do you like this twist to basics?

    Basic tees are a must, sometimes it's the simple things that make an outfit. Reminds me I've still got a bodysuit unworn x

    This is such a fun way to change up the style of a basic t-shirt.

    I've not tried this style – I think they look very chic and you can't have enough basics can you.

    I really like all the strappy designs, not so keen on basic t-shirts so these are really up my street.

    I absolutely love this style of top, not that I would wear it as I feel it is for those younger x

    A basic T is ideal to go with any outfit, pick them in colours that you are most likely to wear!

    A few basic tees are a staple for every wardrobe. Especially with some black jeans.
