One of the most common questions I get from readers is if I have a favorite basic t-shirt brand. To be honest, I don’t. I think finding a good plain t-shirt is actually really difficult. I have a bunch of different brands and styles, but most I feel very neutral about. They are fine to wear underneath things, but aren’t exciting or worth writing about. So when I come across an uber-cute, comfortable and affordable t-shirt (only $15), it deserved its own post.
As a mom and general lover of all things comfortable, I do spend my fair share of time in t-shirts. I’m totally guilty of living the mom life in leggings, slip ons and t-shirts. However, I’m also a fan of dressing up a plain tee with jeans, boots and a cute necklace or sweater. That’s why when I came across this peplum burnout tee on sale right after Christmas, I knew I had to own it. Especially when I saw it was on sale for only $15. You guys know I love a bargain. It is also available in white (only M, L and XL left in white), but all sizes are still up for grabs in the grey.
It does run a tad big so make sure to size down if you are in between sizes. I’m usually somewhere between a XS or a S depending on the style and I’m glad I went with an XS in this one. It is nice and loose, but not overwhelming. Just flat out comfortable.
The peplum is actually the same all the way across the shirt, which for some reason in all my photos it appears like it has an asymmetrical cut. I think I had it slightly pulled to the one side or something, but it is a symmetrical top for what it is worth. Or maybe I’m developing an awkward side lean from carrying around a giant diaper bag for too many years.
If you are looking for a non-peplum tee, I recommend this one by Madewell. It pretty much is the standard v-neck pocket tee, but it washes nicely and fits true-to-size. I also own the tank top version in case you are stocking up on basics for summer.
Does anyone else have a favorite t-shirt brand I need to try? Any other basic items you guys are looking for these days? Let me know in the comments below and maybe I’ll include it in a future post.
