How to Dress Up a White Boyfriend Tee | With Bright Colours and Prints

White boyfriend tee, tropical print trousers, cobalt heels, peach bag
I didn't actually realise at the time quite how I much I liked this easy-wear outfit of a white boyfriend tee and tropical print trousers. I got the them in the sale at Dorothy Perkins along with the peach bag which first appeared in my last outfit post (and it won't be the last time, either). These fabulous trousers "forced" me to rediscover my cobalt heels which got quite a few compliments on the day. Result.

Like a great pair of jeans, a white boyfriend-fit tee can be one of the most hard working pieces in your wardrobe. Worn untucked like I've done here, part-tucked into jeans, under dungarees, tucked into a full midi skirt... The possibilities are endless. Hooray for such a versatile piece.

What are the most hard-working pieces in your wardrobe? Are (like me) forever searching for the perfect white t-shirt/white shirt/jeans, etc.? Tell me in the comments!

    1. Their sale prices are REALLY cheap, Gail - I'm afraid once you're there you won't be adding just one thing to your basket...!

  4. Gosh I love those cobalt shoes...I own a (very) similar blue suede pair from Nine West. They just seem to lift other items into "wow" territory. Such a great look.
    Fresh and fabulous!

    1. Btw, I am constantly on the look out for a great white T....It's almost impossible. Fit, fabric, texture, drape, quality...The list goes on of problems. If I ever find a perfect one I will buy 5!

    1. Thank you Suzanne - it's quite unusual for me to go with white with such a strong pattern but even I tone it down sometimes...!! ;)

  7. Catherine!!! I just found your blog and you know what? I´m so glad I did! You have great style and you are such a beauty... I have to admit, I´m in love. With you. And your blog. I read about 50 posts today and I was asking myself... how does she know? She´s writing about the same things I do.... and then I knew. It´s our age. You´re amazing. The end.
    Sending love, Doro

  10. The colors and print of your pants are amazing! As much as I love colors and patterns, I can't pull off wearing floral pants.

  11. Love the botanical print pants! One positive about having an inverted triangle shape is that I can wear pants with a bold pattern, it actually can work perfectly for me! As for the item always sought? The perfect slim/skinny jeans.

  12. You are looking gorgeous on this outfit. I like white dresses. I have huge collection of White party dresses.

  13. I love a good white T-shirt - it looks gorgeous with so many things. I'm a big fan of jeans - skinny, flared, bootcut, high waist, etc and a clean white tee looks amazing with them, dressed up with some fab jewellery and heels. My problem is I haven't found a really nice quality white tee yet (I struggle living in Portugal). Maybe it's time I bought online. I've heard M&S ones are good.

  14. Ahh the perfect white tee, it is so elusive! It doesn't help that 99% of them these days are completely sheer, agh! The ASOS one looks nice and opaque, though, might have to give it a try. I really love this look on you, the bold accessories compliment it so well. :-) xo

  15. I have a super soft white tee, perhaps I need to wear it!! Love this look, the print is fabulous and can be worn year round and I love the scalloped detailing on the beautiuful peach bag. Pretty look my friend!!

  16. Very pretty. I love how you added another colour, this bright blue. Makes the outfit so much more interesting. I think all the pieces come together to create perfection. Those earrings!!!
    But comfortable? With those heels? Hmmm. Oh well it is fashion.
