Traditionally a casual top, the t-shirt has evolved into a remarkably versatile item of clothing that means you no longer have to choose between comfort and style. At navabi, we have plus size, casual tees in plentiful supply alongside smarter styles that will take you into the evening.
The white tee
An iconic wardrobe staple, the white t-shirt is a classic piece every woman should own. Once you find the perfect fit and cut, it’s an essential building block for countless outfits. From styling under a slip dress to teaming it with a smart blazer and boyfriend jeans, the styling possibilities are endless. We have a large selection of white tees at navabi to choose from. A round neck, jersey style is a smart investment and will provide you with the most wear, but if you’re after something a little dressier look to styles with embellished necklines, detailed sleeves and creative hems. Label wise, Amber & VANILLA and Exelle are two brands you can always rely on for high quality, basics.
Simple, yet chic
Another everyday essential is the V-neck tee. Designed with a, you guessed it, V-neckline and usually made from soft cotton or jersey, it’s a casual wardrobe go-to. The relaxed staple has managed to earn itself cool-girl status thanks to models wearing it as part of their off-duty uniform. The key to nailing the nonchalant look is opting for a style boasting the perfect amount of slouch. Look to Peter Luft’s plus size V-neck t-shirts for your fix, they’re a navabi bestseller for a reason.
The iconic polo shirt
We have René Lacoste, the French, seven-time grand slam champion to thank for the iconic polo shirt. Back in 1926, he was frustrated with how uncomfortable the long sleeved, white button-up shirts tennis players were expected to wear were, so he designed the polo shirt. Fast-forward more than 90 years and the polo shirt is no longer just tennis attire, but a wardrobe mainstay. Our edit of polo shirts are both comfy and stylish making them ideal for dressed down weekends. Plain black and white versions work all year round, meanwhile striped and pastel hued styles look great offset with white trousers or denim in summer.
Say it with a slogan tee
Get straight to the point with a slogan tee. As seen on the catwalks, the sassy designs are one of this season’s hottest trends. From Zizzi’s uplifting quotes to Aprico’s tongue in cheek messages, if you want to stand out, let your tee do the talking.
Not just a casual staple
For something a little different, experiment with textured fabrics, lace embroidered t-shirts or asymmetrical designs. These are a simple way to add interest to linen trousers or simple chinos whatever the season. Fashion magpies may want to indulge their love of sparkle with embellished designs, like rhinestone encrusted necklines and glittery finishes for a look that embodies easy glamour. Fancy adding a playful element to your look? Why not try a peplum t-shirt. The sweet ruffle hem adds a feminine twist to the otherwise quite masculine shape and when worn with tailored trousers makes a stylish alternative to your everyday office ensemble.
