The Not-So-Basic Basic

A basic comfortable t-shirt is a must-have in anyones wardrobe, a neutral coloured soft tee to pair perfectly with your favourite pair of denim. Eventually, it ends up becoming an addiction and one question we all end up asking ourselves is"how many white t-shirts do I really need?" 

Add variety to your t-shirt addiction with our Mistake Top by Cheap Monday. This soft jersey top sports one sleeve as a bat wing and the other as a classic cropped t-shirt  sleeve. This asymmetric beauty adds whimsy to an otherwise basic outfit. It comes in black, grey and white for all your monochromatic needs. 

Another favourite of ours is the Type top, basic looking enough until you take a closer look and admire the overlays of fabric near the hem which add a layered casual yet put-together look. The type top comes in black and white and looks great with jeans, tucked into a high waisted skirt or under your favourite ride-or-die leather jacket.

Finally, every perfect basic t-shirt deserves the perfect basic triangle bra. We love the contrast bra by Mary Young. They're minimal, great quality and are infinitely flattering as t-shirt bras.
