Is “relaxed tee” is a misnomer? While not as demoralizing as the infamous swimsuit search, finding the perfect relaxed-fitting tee can be a challenge. I’ve tried (and purchased) quite a few, so that I can bring you my favorites. No really, I’ve actually tried all of the tees below – I shop like it’s my job!
The H&M tee is a perfectly drapey, textured slub tee. I especially like this dusty rose color, which is a great alternative to white and it looks awesome paired with a fatigue, cargo skinny or a slouchy track pant. This Rag & Bone t-shirt is the absolute perfect fit – not too loose or too tight and just the right length. I absolutely LOVE the star print, which amps up the coolness of this key basic. I’m imagining this tee peeking out from under a black blazer – both work and weekend appropriate!
A short-waisted friend has finally found herself a t-shirt in this Madewell basic. And with so many fun colors and at a great price point, it’s time to stock up! While my fellow long-waisted friends absolutely love the Bobi tee’s fantastic length. To note; however, this tee is long (perfectly so) but not great for the petite and short-waisted gals mentioned previous.
This Style Mint find is my new favorite white tee. A great, soft material that is not completely sheer is extraordinary! It’s just long enough and the sleeves hit at the most perfect length, almost exactly between the shoulder and elbow. Plus the pocket adds just enough pizazz – cool but still “layer-able” under sweaters and light jackets. A grey t-shirt you ask? This Monrow shirt is my kid-friendly alternative to the quintessential white tee. It’s a classic neutral that pairs with everything yet less of a stain-risk for “jam hands.”
I have been coveting this Joie message tee for awhile. Message and graphic shirts continue to be a huge trend and I love both the message and the simplicity of this one. And, who doesn’t love a striped tee?? As always, nautical stripes are the perfect compliment to any spring look. I’m imagining this Splendid tee paired with colored denim or tucked-in to a floral-print maxi – tres chic!
