The One by Cotton On Launch Event in Santa Monica

Last week I went to the Cotton On store on Santa Monica Promenade for the launch of The One collection. Cotton On is an Australian brand that now has stores in sixteen countries! I was able to meet and talk with Cotton On spokesperson and Australian It Girl Lara Bingle.

I love Lara's new, shorter hair cut
The One collection is three basic tees (Deep V, The Scoop, and The Crew), a tank top (6 colors) and boatneck tops (stripes or solids). Cotton On was my go to store for affordable basics during my time in Australia. There's only so much you can pack for a semester away-I had to do some shopping! I am thrilled they are opening up more stores in the US.

The tees in The One collection start at just $14.95, with the long sleeve boatneck tops costing $17.95. Very affordable! Each blogger was asked to style an outfit using a t shirt from The One collection. You can see my styled outfit below.Of course I picked the nautical striped v neck!

This is the outfit I put together: Carolina cotton/chambray shirt over the deep v in navy stripes with shorts, sunglasses, and summer love floppy hat

All of the blogger designed looks-so many ways to style a simple t shirt!

Lara is the perfect spokesperson for the Cotton On brand: that beachy, carefree girl that just lights up the room. I talked with Lara about her own personal style and why she loves The One collection. Lara said that so often she sees girls that are examples of "the dress wearing the girl, not the girl wearing the dress." A simple t shirt that fits well is simple and sexy. Being confident in your clothes is a must. Just look at Lara in one of the tees:

I asked Lara what her beach day essentials were. A simple t shirt over her bikini. Nothing fancy, something comfortable and fitted.

Summer is just around the corner and so go out and find THE ONE!


  1. That looks like such a fun event and I love their products!


    1. It was a blast! I especially loved styling an outfit for the mannequin. I'm happy to hear you are a fan of Cotton On too

  2. This looks so fun, and it's a gorgeous retail space! I'll have to check it out. And I totally agree with Laura-- A simple tshirt that fits well is effortless and stylish!

    1. You should definitely check it out! There is also one in Westside Pavilion but I think the promenade store is more fun!
