The rise and rise of the baby tee

Baby tees made famous in the late 90s and early 2000s are making a resurgence and plenty of Australian and international labels are jumping on the trend.

Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Drew Barrymore, Kate Moss, all noughties style icons; all baby tee wearers.

Reunited with its old friends, low rise jeans and chunky, colourful jewellery, this top trend is the latest to return from the vault.

In this piece, The Creative Issue breaks down the best places to shop the look online. Brisbane fashionista Tiana (@tianavillaescusa) models her growing collection.

1.Réalisation Par: the US label was an early adopter of the trend. Their Elton John for Réal limited edition collection featured the Hercules baby tee which has sold out time and time again. Since then, they have designed a full range of baby tees from star signs to bunnies that can fulfil all your nostalgic Britney Spears dreams.



2. With Jéan: this hugely popular Australian brand recently launched a “tee’s” range. The tees come in both black and white and at the moment only feature the brands name but comes in a variety of different graphic designs. If simplicity is your style these are the tees for you.

3. Highrack: another Australian label jumping on the trend. They have a smaller range. The material is a bit thinner and gives a more casual look.



4. Depop: if you want an authentic, vintage baby tee look no further than Depop. As many of you who have already discovered, this app offers the chance to find either an original noughties baby tee or new pieces from up and coming designers.



Now that you’re all inspired by Tiana’s styling, it’s time to create your own baby tee look with these online finds.
