Jeans and t-shirt. What can I say? It is almost all I wear. My uniform, if you will.
There are about a million variations to this very simple uniform: the style of jeans, the kind of shoes or boots, the blazer or coat, the bag.. It’s endless, and quite fabulous.
I have spent a good number of years trying to find the perfect t-shirt. Many of you can relate, I know.
Let me dedicate this blog to the perfect t-shirt. Firstly, and most important, is the material. The t-shirt should have some hang to it.
Kain has it down.
It is a silk-cotton-something blend that is brilliant, except that it’s quite shear. Which means you either have the right bra or a camisole, which makes is a high maintenance t-shirt, which is annoying. Of course, I have a few and wear them all the time.
Alexander Wang broke into mainstream fashion with his t-shirt.
Initially, I was thrilled, but they pill. Not worth it.
Secondly, it’s the cut. V-necks or scoop-necks are particularly flattering, and the sleeves can’t be too long.
J.Crew has nicely cut t-shirts, good neckline and slim fit.
The perfect t-shirt?
I haven’t met a client yet who doesn’t look great in these t-shirts.
