Q. Hey Jordan!
My style is transitioning from fitted tees to looser tops that are slightly slouchy, but still feminine. Because this is your favorite type of shirt to wear, do you have any recommendations?
A. If I had my druthers, I’d totally wear slouchy t-shirts every day, everywhere, all the time. To work, to parties, to bed, to everything, just mixing in fun extras to dress them up or down. (This is actually sort of what I do.)
Above, three perfect tees that I’m keeping in heavy rotation these days.
L to R:
1. Vince is the gold standard for relaxed-fit yet soft and feminine, but I would never advise spending over a hundred bucks on a t-shirt (especially a white one; no no). I picked up a grey Vince scoop-neck at an outlet mall for about 75% off and am thrilled with it, but I do advise hand-washing even basic pieces when you adore how they fit, regardless of price point – it’s just too depressing when you finally find the perfect tee and then end up accidentally shrinking the thing.
2. My present t-shirt obsession: the Sunwash T from LOFT. I picked up one at an event a couple of weeks ago (in a size Large so it’d still be slouchy if it shrunk in the wash, which it didn’t), and then went back the next day for more (they’re on sale right now, and come in a zillion colors). I’m actually wearing one right this very minute.
3. And finally, the shirt on the far right is Joe Fresh, a discovery I made when I was in Canada a few weeks ago: their tees are just perfect and very reasonably priced.
UPDATE: ThisIsWhereISayItAll asked: How is the sizing on the Joe Fresh tees? I’m a size 4 generally, and I went for the Medium (which fits similarly to the LOFT tee pictured above). So they run sliiiiightly large.
