Why I love it

As much as I love discovering new trends, there is nothing more satisfying than reinventing an old classic. Step in my current upgrade of the classic white t-shirt – the Stadium Overtee. Combining a high fashion cocoon shape with our most technical performance fabric, I can literally wear it from workout to work. This oversized, longline tee has become my go-to layering piece with everything from leggings to sweatpants.  

What really sets this t-shirt apart from the rest though is the awesome laser cut Union Jack detail. When we were designing the London Edit collection, I wanted to create pieces with a patriotic edge for those of us who don’t want to wear head-to-toe flag print. With Rio in full swing, there is no better time to wear this tee. Though, because the laser cut detail is so discreet I can throw it on at any time, no sporting event necessary.

How I wear it

You can’t go wrong with a white tee as they go with everything. The Stadium Overtee is sweat-wicking, lightweight and durable, so I have been wearing it for running over a neon Infinity Bra with my trusty Zero Gravity tights. I love how the laser cut detail shows off the neon pop of my bra. For yoga I layer it over a pair of yoga pants, like the Ahimsa Yoga Pants

Out of the studio is where this tee really shines, I’ve been wearing it layered over the equally patriotic Excellence 7/8 Leggings with flatform trainers. For a more tailored look, I’ll swap my technical leggings for the wide-legged Unwind Luxe Trousers, as I am in love with loose fitting shapes at the moment. This is a reminder that there is always time to embrace the white tee - a style that keeps on giving.
