Slightly random but - "cool" tshirt to wear with blazer and jeans?

I'm looking for a t-shirt / top that will look good with a black blazer, jeans and Chelsea boots (what I wear most days). I usually wear plain colours but wondering if I can get away with some logo/motif/image type tops to liven things up a bit.

I'm 31 and a size 10/12. Large-ish breasts, so no round necks for me.

This is the sort of thing I was thinking. Has anyone seen any others?

Check out doesmybumlook40 blog. She has recently done a post about tshirts which I think would fit your bill. I like the 'French kissing in the USA' one but can't bring myself to buy it at the moment iyswim

I like the copper metallic stripe grey t-shirt on hush. That could look good. What about All Saints?

How funny. Without looking at your link, I was going to suggest this one!

These J Crew metallic ones are meant to be nice - v Isabel Marant...

I love the Hush lightning one. I also think a Paris Review t-shirt, such as is sported by the divine Zadie Smith, is super-cool:

I've just ordered the hush lightening one. I've got big boobs (32ff) but I think it will be ok as the neck looks a bit lower than a usual round neck. I would have liked the black but it's already sold out in my size.

I'm a huge fan of Chaser t-shirts: www.chaserbrand.com/

I like a similar outfit and this is never off my back at the moment although admittedly I paid less than half price for it.

I'm slightly obsessed with some of the others too.

You might like Pearl and Earl

Oh no bikerunski some of those are terrible rip offs of the selfish mama ones who give 50% of profits to charity.

BikeRunSki Tue 31-Jan-17 19:45:12

interesting tops here too

hecallsmebunny Tue 31-Jan-17 19:45:54

Glad I had a look here...nothing to suggest though I'm afraid!

BikeRunSki Tue 31-Jan-17 19:46:27

Oh! sad I don't know Selfish Mama.

Swimminguphill Tue 31-Jan-17 19:51:30

bikerunski have a look and tell me if I'm mad? Tis possible... www.thefmlystore.com/collections/women

They had a black sparkle one at Xmas I nearly ordered which struck me as similar to one on the site you linked to... goo.gl/images/VHa6Wu

Thank you all - some great suggestions. I think swimming's link is spot on.

newpants - great minds wink

BikeRunSki Tue 31-Jan-17 20:08:32

Swimming they are similar, but Selfish Mother is all word designs, and Pearl & Earl is mainly symbols/pictures/initials.

Swimminguphill Tue 31-Jan-17 20:13:48

Fair point, I guess the mama one and the sparkle one looked suspicious to me grin

I ordered the Hush lightening one but returned it as it was terrible quality for the money (as can be the case with Hush) - the lightening bit was all wrinkled and seemed badly applied.

DrScholl Tue 31-Jan-17 21:55:17

oh fuck dont get a mum t shirt

NewPantsforaNewYear Tue 31-Jan-17 21:55:34

I don't know if the Silk Fred lightning bolt I linked to would be any better quality Somewhere. It may be worth a look.

EssentialHummus Tue 31-Jan-17 21:56:54

dr as in, a shirt with "mum" on it? I won't!

DrScholl Wed 01-Feb-17 06:33:31

Those winging it ones

simmonsbythesea Wed 01-Feb-17 08:15:40

DrScholl slightly churlish of you considering they are for charity, made by a small independent company rather than a chain, and have an ethical supply source. Yes the words used are limited, but are used for a reason. I'd rather one of them that some of the stupidly naff slogans H&M and Hush churn out...
