Street Style Star: Who says a T-shirt can’t look ultra chic?

14 Oct

Street Style pics are raging like a wild fire. Bloggers dedicated to taking pictures and posting fashionable pedestrians are becoming a cult of sorts. Style is fast becoming a global phenomenon.

Fashion Month alone resulted in tons of street style pictures, I’ve been inundated! Then i came across this one. How do you dress up a basic, slouchy white t-shirt and look so chic. Well, here’s how, hot off the streets of Paris.

Loving the floppy hat, sunglasses and bracelet, everything comes  together to make her look so chic.

Milan Fashion Week: Jil Sander dresses up the Tee

28 Sep

Inspired by haute couture, Jil Sander displayed an elegant twist to wearing the basic t-shirt. Also in line with the ‘bright colours’ trend that has taken the runways for Spring/Summer 2011. Love it because its different, fresh and vibrant. It does come across as stylish and chic, a sure head turner. Lets see if this takes off as mainstream fashion.

I heart Tees

21 Sep

I love Tees, they sort of grew on me silently and before i knew what was going on i was scouring shops, markets, online, everywhere looking for unique tees. It started out with the need for something casual and comfy on a weekend, worn with jeans and flats. This would typically be the basic plain coloured tee, but then i moved on to the need for something with quirky graphics or some form of add on/embellishment. These days, it’s an obsession with the slouchy tee, with nondescript graphics, subtle alteration to the basic shape, an uneven hem would be great, bows would be lovely. Worn under a fitted jacket, accessorized with a long chain/pendant and the list could go on…

So, tees and i, we’ve come a pretty long way and it’s exciting when i discover something new and different.

Exciting it was when i discovered that my dear virtual friends at style.com are doing something fun with tees.  To celebrate 10 years of style.com, they got 10 designers to design 10 limited edition t-shirts using the symbol X as inspiration. It was a stunning display to say the least. 10 great designers, 10 great tees. I especially loved 5 of them
