All summer long Ive been asked to share my idea of the perfect basic t-shirt. Listen up, it does not exist. What Ive learned is there is not ONE perfect tee but FIVE that you need in your closet:
Check out the exaggerated raglan sleeve on this piece. Its allows for maximum movement while waving your arm frantically to get the bartender...sorry, mixologist's attention.
Aritzia, the dark horse of fashion, frustrates and fascinates me all at once. Last season it was impossible to find cute jackets. But Artizia, like a bodega open at 2am when your having a maniacal craving for kale chips (hello, Brooklyn junkies), came through. You don't forget that. And you will come to appreciate, as I have, the hybrid neckline of this too-wide-for-a-crewnk-yet-too-high-for-a-vneck tee.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A TEE:
* The more mashup of contents, the more drapey the look.
* Ask a snarky salesguy if its preshrunk. Try tolerating their closed eyes while they speak to you.
* Generally, a cap sleeve looks best. Seek one that offers a slanted cut across the sleeve.
* A center back seam is never not sexy.
