Plain white (and blue, and green, and purple) tees
There’s no wardrobe staple that’s as multifaceted as a t-shirt. Whether worn with jeans and flat sandals or a blazer and heels, a t-shirt can transform from day to night and back again with the switch of an accessory and addition or removal of a cardigan. A quality t-shirt, to boot, will not only last longer than your boyfriend’s Hanes undershirt (which, admittedly, may be comfortable to sleep in, but should be left out of the light of day), but is typically made with higher quality fibers that guarantee a fit that’s second to none.
City girls and cowgirls: let The Vogue City take you down the path of effortless comfort with reviews of the best big girl knitwear labels for your buck.
James Perse makes a multitude of jersey knit tops that are soft, pliable and ultra chic – not to mention a color selection that ranges from soft washes of pale color to eye-popping, bold pigment. Prices start at $45 for a supima tank and run upwards of $105 for a long-sleeved off-the-shoulder top.
Michael Stars a favorite amongst college coeds and hipster moms alike, has a penchant for creating the form fitting, flattering pieces that work with every season. We’re especially fond of the Shine line, a cotton/nylon blend that adds a bit of sparkle without being overtly glittery, which ranges from $40 to $60 per piece. A disclaimer of “One Size Fits Most” is sewn into the labels; ladies on the slimmer or fuller figured sides may have trouble finding a perfect fit.
“Michael Stars is the 20-year old T-shirt company many credit with giving birth to the trend for fitted T’s.” -Los Angeles Magazine
C&C California adds a punchy, West Coast feel to their line of tanks, tees and tunics. Prices, again, range from $40 to $100; bulk purchases are rewarded with discounts of up to 40% off when placed online.
“C&C California was created by two young women who grew up on the beaches of Southern California during the 1970’s. Their mutual love for the styles, colors and comfort of that decade continued to evoke and inspire them. Inspired from the cultural icons of that era that included Ali McGraw, Raquel Welch, Natalie Wood and Jacqueline Kennedy, the concept was dedicated to making The Perfect Tee Shirt.”
