10th Commandment: June 11
Jun 11, 2013
This weekend, I was walking around my neighborhood and I noticed a lot of women wearing the same outfit: t-shirt, khaki shorts, sandals. And I saw a lot of ladies who were in desperate need of a t-shirt intervention.
I love a soft cotton t-shirt, but there are so many bad ones out there. And not all t-shirts are created equal. Most are cut too boxy or they’re too sheer. Some women are wearing their tees too tight, others are wearing shirts that are long past their prime and faded or stretched with age.
A great fitting, crisp cotton t-shirt is a classic, but only if you choose the right t-shirt.
Splendid is my favorite brand because the tees are soft, cut well and last. I also like the light scoopneck for just a bit of skin without going full v-neck. Splendid makes this neckline in 3/4 sleeve tops and racerback tanks.
You don’t have to spend $46 to find a great looking tee. Dorothy Perkins has this nearly identical t-shirt for $9. Both Eddie Bauer and Sierra Trading Post have well-priced t-shirts that come in lots of great colors. If you need something with a slightly more relaxed vibe, I’ve had good luck with t-shirts from Gap.
