Jersey Girl: The Perfect Tee

Via Pinterest

I hope your week is going well gorgeous people! I'm having a blast over on Planet Twitter. Who knew that it could be so ridiculously addictive? A big fat Greek smooch to all of you and your welcome tweets!

T-shirts - not just a humble wardrobe staple, you gotta love the versatility of such a basic item. So much so that I practically live in mine as part of my off-duty wardrobe. I also love that understated street chic can be achieved in minutes with a bit of effortless styling and accessorizing too. For glammed up look, think loose white tee teamed with a killer sequin skirt (see below!) - love the contrast of mixing simple and luxe, or a white tee paired with a hot pink pair of wide leg trousers and statement necklace by either Dannijo or Aurelie Biderman!

I already have an extensive collection of printed and plain tees, but am forever in search of the perfect tee. One that made in a good fabric, fits, hangs and sits nicely for my shape but is also comfortable and durable. I did a bit of a recce and came across these.

Bargain! Love the F21 basics, plus All Saints always produce the softest, gorgeous drapy tees!
I've always been a fan of American Vintage Tees via Revolve Clothing, as they hang really nicely, durability is a little so-so on tees made from different fabrics. The Alexander Wang Tee is a bargain at 35€ from 70 odd euros. Plus at the OUTNET always have many bargains on the t-shirt front so get shopping!

I gasped at the price tag of the T-shirts by Helmut Lang & the Olsen twin's brand, The Row. Seriously, how much? It's a bit of a stretch to most of our budgets for sure and although I might consider splurging on a silk blend, I sure would spend more that 40 odd quid at the very most for a good quality cut & fabric. So why is it so darn expensive? The Olsen twins have been very tight lipped about their resources, where they get everything made and who they deal with. However, I wonder if it's got anything to do with the how it's made "The secret, they say, is the French seam running down the back. 'It's cut from one piece of fabric,' explains Ashley, who is the older by a few minutes, and tends to take the lead when discussing business. 'It's about the drape and the fabric. And finding the balance between the two."

'It's made on a lingerie machine,' adds Mary-Kate, fingering the silky, diaphanous sample that is hanging on a rail behind us. 'A lot of thought has to go into it.'
