THE CREW NECK TEE
Seems like it's officially summer so you probably won't see me in closed toe shoes until September. That's that, now let's talk about crew neck t-shirts.
When it comes to wardrobe staples in the spring/summer season t-shirts in general should be mentioned, but my new favourite t-shirt style is the crew neck.
It's the perfect style if you don't like to show your décolletage and it's the best layering piece under a cami dress or top in the spring when it's not warm enough to bare your shoulders. My tip would be to size up so it's not tight around the neck.
The black tee I'm wearing is from Zara. I don't usually buy tees there because the quality of their basic pieces is just...well not the best. I bought this tee because it's 100% cotton. Surprisingly it's soft and comfortable and the material has a nice weight to it. It's not that cheap "crispy" cotton that you wash once and it turns into paper.
Most of the t-shirts I own I got from COS. They cost around 15-25 Euros but if you take good care of them they'll last you for years. If you have the budget feel free to spend more, but I think paying more than 50 Euros for a simple t-shirt is just plain madness.
When buying any kind of t-shirt always make sure that it's a natural material and there is nothing synthetic inside, because wearing synthetic materials in spring/summer is like going into a sauna...you are going to sweat! Since cotton is a breathable material it will keep you cool in summer.
Always make sure that the material has a nice weight to it so it drapes nicely on your body, if it's too thin it can accentuate things you might not want other people to see. A good quality cotton t-shirt just shouldn't be see trough.
Hope someone found this rant useful, if you did let me know in the comment section!
Until next time!
