JCrew Striped Boatneck Tee
More and more I am realizing the importance of a good basic. Whether I wear it alone with a pair of jeans or skirt or as a layering piece under a cardigan or blazer, it is an everyday essential. A good quality basic is something worth its cost. A cheap, low quality basic does not hold up to it's weight in wear. I find it start losing its shape and begins to fall apart. I also don;t want to break the bank either. Lately, I have been buying my most worn basics from JCrew and believe me, they are all pure comfort. Plus their versatility has made their role in my closet even more important.
A good striped tee is so essential in an wardrobe. I love it to mix with my floral printed skirts or pants but is still a great top to wear with jeans. This one by JCrew is my favorite. It doesn't fit too tight nor is it too loose. It is thin enough for the warmer temps but not see through. The sleeves are more of a 3/4 length and it is incredibly comfortable. I could wear it everyday and be able to match it with just about everything.
JCrew Essential TShirt (in Navy and White)
A basic tee is the most important piece in a wardrobe. It can we worn with a skirt or pair of pants for a dressed down look. They are perfect alone in the spring and summer, perfect dressed with a pair of jeans for a classic look, or even under a sweater. It is that one piece that is the most versatile and needs to hold up it's wear. I don't want to spend a ton of money but I want the quality to be great and for it to last the many washes. I prefer to have many colors on hand to match with just about anything but white, black, grey, navy and pink are my most go-tos. I love JCrew tees. They wear so nicely with a great fit, aren't see through, are super comfortable, and they last.
Long sleeve tee

When the weather is a bit cooler is when I typically bring out my long sleeve tees and wear them in the same ways I wear my short sleeve tees. A great comfortable tee is what I want that and this JCrew tee is perfect! Again, I like to keep these in the same basic colors as short sleeve tees. The blush pink on this one is so versatile and feminine. It's just another shirt I can wear everyday and match with pretty much everything!
