HOW TO: TAKE YOUR TEE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Take Your T-Shirt from Daytime to Date Night

As a mom, I’m all about multitasking. So, when I started designing t-shirts for my own brand Motto + Fleur, this was totally my mindset. I made it my personal mission to design quality shirts for busy moms that would be multi-functional.

I wanted to design shirts that would look great with your favorite pair of yoga pants, but could also easily be dressed up for a (much-needed) date night with the hubby… And so, that’s exactly what I did!

We all know that t-shirts are a casual wardrobe staple for mamas... but if you’re still not sure how to take comfy to chic, check out my 4 easy tips below!


  1. Go Neutral - Your tee is going to be the foundation of your outfit, the piece that you “build” off of— Choosing a simple, modern design and going neutral (think: blacks, whites, & grays) allows for a clean, classy look.

  2. Find Your Fit - Finding your “Goldilocks” fit is a must when creating a polished look. If your tee is too loose, you risk looking frumpy; too tight and you’re going to be uncomfortable. 😳

    At Motto + Fleur, we purposefully print on Allmade™️ t-shirts because they’re different from your typical tee. These t-shirts are made from tri-blend material (a.k.a. super soft), featuring US-grown organic-cotton and recycled polyester. In fact, each shirt contains the equivalent of 6 recycled water bottles! 🤯 The body of the tee is slightly longer and the sleeves are tapered, giving you a more comfortable fit and a slimmer silhouette. Talk about comfort AND confidence, all in one! 🙌


    Not sure what size to get? Click on any of our t-shirts— we have a super helpful size guide! Just scroll through the listing photos and you’ll find it. As a general rule, I always suggest sizing up, as these tees are “ladies’ sizing” (i.e. more fitted than a “traditional” t-shirt).

  3. Stay Structured - By including a solid color blazer, you add structure and dimension to your look, taking your tee from casual-chic to sophisticated & stylish. 💁


  4. Pop ‘Til You Drop - Remember when I said to start with a neutral-color tee? Well, now is the time to take your look to the next level! Pair your t-shirt with a pop of color like these palazzo pants or this fun pleated midi skirt! If bright colors aren’t your thing, that’s okay! Go understated and add a piece of colorful jewelry instead. Check out this druzy bracelet or these statement earrings for an added splash of color! 🎨


As Oscar de la Renta said, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” And that’s what we’re all about here at Motto + Fleur, Style with a Statement. Find your style, make your statement. 🙌
