Review: Spring Tee’s

Blog Tee

Unabashedly, I gravitate towards donning comfortable tee’s, layer on dainty accessories and a statement-hued ballet flat for a casual ensemble. Tissue tee’s are a personal favourite and my colour-coordinated wardrobe would be a trusty testament of the yes-love-buy relationship I have with white tee’s. I even purchased matching mint tissue tee’s from UO for A & I (gift for her, and just because for me)!

Echoing Emily’s (from Cupcakes & Cashmere) assessment of that perfect white T, here are some of my picks to celebrate Spring.

one | Topshop Burnout Tee (52% Polyester,48% Cotton) Rolled-up sleeves that have proven to be comfortable and can afford to be a little less casual with the crew neckline.
two | Calypso Jami Crewneck Linen Tee (100% Linen) Wide scoop neck in 7 colours; with the weighty texture of linen that I love. Never purchased this but the equivalent (and a lot less in terms of retail price) from Zara is my go-to white/ black and grey tee for the weekends with dress shorts/ jeans/ waisted skirts.
three | American Eagle Favourite T (40% Polyester, 60% Cotton) V-neck and incredibly soft – cheapest of the lot at a buy-1-get-another-at-50%. Go-to tee (alongside Old Navy’s below!) during my university years for the affordability but just a note: does not hold its shape for long after frequent washes
four | H&M Top in Slub Jersey (100% Cotton) Shrinks in the wash due to the 100% cotton fabrication but another affordable option in a variety of complementary, basic hues. Also went through a handful of these trusty ones during university.
five | JCrew Factory Tissue Tee (100% Cotton) Alternative to AE’s above for a go-to v-neck.. But honestly it this was not on sale I’d skip it. Doesn’t hold well after frequent washes and for the full retail price… You’re better off paying a little more for a cotton linen blend at Zara’s or even cheaper alternatives below.

Gap | Old Navy | Urban Outfitters | ASOS
