30 Ways To Wear: Lilac V-Neck Tee

For this month's 30 ways to wear post, it's another purple piece! And one I've been wearing on frequent repeat lately, this lilac v-neck tee. It's been a really versatile piece to have in my wardrobe but it wasn't worn all that frequently when I first bought it.


30 Ways to Wear: Lilac V-Neck Tee

I purchased this tee back in July 2013, so hitting 31 documented wears in April 2022 is not a sign of a piece that's been a frequently worn staple since I got it 9 years ago! I have been wearing it a lot more frequently these past few years, as I've switched from mostly wearing printed tops to more basic block colour tops and adding prints to my outfit with kimonos or scarves (depending on the weather) instead. So even though it took 9 years to reach more than 30 wears with this tee, it is one I have been wearing so frequently lately and I think it has definitely proved its worth in my wardrobe.


Cost Per Wear

I bought this tee at The Iconic, from a label called Spectrum that is no longer available. One of the other tees I hit 30 wears with is from the same brand, just in grey. Such good quality I'm sad the Iconic no longer sells them! It was on sale and I had a discount code, so it was just $11.95. At 31 wears, that's 38 cents a wear, definitely good value!

I have worn this tee a lot more than 31 times - I did consider removing it from my wardrobe for a bit as I was wearing it so little, so wore it as loungewear around the house quite a few times. Of course I quickly realised it definitely deserved a place in my permanent wardrobe, and worked it back into my "leaving the house" outfits and so back into being documented on the blog. It's holding up really well and I'm pleased with this purchase. Here are my 30 favourite ways I've worn it:

This has to be the easiest way to wear any brightly coloured tee - not just this lilac one! Wear it with neutrals. Try greys, blacks, even browns, and let the purple tee be the main statement piece in your outfit.



Lilac Tee and Kimono Outfit Ideas

I do love throwing a kimono over a tee and denim outfit, as you can see in these 5 outfits! With this lilac tee it's nice to be a little matchy-matchy and wear a kimono that has a bit of purple in it - that dark floral print kimono is a pairing I love with this tee.



Pink and Purple Outfits With A Lilac Tee

I really like pink and purple together! And as you can see in each of these 4 outfits, any shade of pink, from a pastel blush bag or neon pink scarf or pink bag or shorts, all work well with the lilac tee.



Pink, Blue and Purple Outfits Featuring a Lilac Tee

As well as loving pink and purple together like in the previous set of outfits, I like to extend that duo out into a try by wearing pink, purple, and blue together! It's a combination of colours I'll never get bored with. As you can see in these 4 outfits any shades of blue or pink can be combined with the lilac. There are so many possibilities with this trio of colours.



Lilac Tee In Office Outfits

With a business casual office environment, a colourful basic tee is a nice choice with a pencil skirt for a day without a lot of meetings. For something a little more dressed up, you can always throw a blazer on top like I have in that last outfit.

Another fail-safe outfit: jeans and a tee! For something a little different, you can see in 3 of these 4 outfits I've paired the lilac tee with printed jeans. It's a nice way to add more interest into a staple everyday combination.



Maxi Skirts and Dresses With Lilac Tee

Maxi skirts and dresses are something I often reach for, perfect for mum life! As you can see in these 6 outfits, the block colour lilac tee works equally well with a printed maxi skirt as it does with a basic neutral colour one, and even layers well over a maxi dress like in that fourth outfit.

  5. That tee's such a gorgeously deep shade of lilac. No wonder it has reached 30 wears, and I'm sure it's not at the end of its life yet! I wonder, have you tried it with orange? It would look fantastic! xxx

  13. And this lavender color is so good on you! You must be so organized to keep track of the number of wears. Do you use a spreadsheet?

  14. Of course I love a post about purple! :D This shade looks so good with your kimonos! It is interesting how trends and personal style evolve over the years. I never thought I would have multiple tie-dye tops (that I wear regularly, no less!), but welcome to 2022! haha

  18. I love to see how you wore this tee with so much variety Mica. And how you rescued it from the loungewear, haha. I have some shirts that do double duty, and even some are worn for sleepwear, but I will wear them for out and about too.

    1. I tend to retire clothing to loungewear or sleepwear when it's something I just can't let go of - this tee was still in good condition but often when I wear out pieces I love they end up too worn for wearing outdoors, so they are loungewear, haha!

  26. There's never been a better time for a light purple T than during the year of Veri Peri! Love the 0.38 cost per wear, and it looks like the T is still going strong. Worn with a kimono with purple in the print is my favorite because I have a strong matchy-matchy streak!
