The Perfect White T-Shirt

A t-shirt and jeans is a classic casual combination.  They’re known as being easy to throw on and comfortable.  One might say it’s an “off-duty” uniform!  However, I’ve never really felt comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans.  Mainly because the former was always hard to find in a style that fit and flattered my curves.  Every time I try to wear a t-shirt I look too top heavy, they stretch too tightly across my chest, or they’re too narrow cut.  White tees are especially difficult because they’re always too sheer.  No one wants to have to wear a camisole under something as simple as a t-shirt.  If you live in the South, then you know that idea in the Summer is just plain cruel.   That’s why I was so excited when I tried on this white t-shirt and not only was it not sheer, but the v-neck and relaxed fit was so perfect that I ended up buying it in two more colors.

The humidity when we took photos of this look was unreal!  We were at the beach, so that probably didn’t help matters, but this is just the way it will be for the next couple of months regardless of where you are!  So I apologize in advance for the halo of frizz around my head and some of the extra-soft photos.  The humidity made our lens constantly fog up haha!  It was a struggle.

Back to the t-shirt: it is part of the Express One Eleven collection that features effortless everyday essentials from t-shirts to joggers.  Every item is a perfect combination of fashion and comfort meant to fit various aspects of the modern woman’s lifestyle.  You can throw the tops on with a pair of jeans for the day, wear them as loungewear, or sweat it out in the gym.  Their versatility makes them the ultimate essential items for your wardrobe that can be worn all year-round.  Summer is the perfect time to stock up because the One Eleven collection will keep you comfortable in the heat, then help you transition to cooler weather in the Fall (it will be here before you know it).

I’m shown wearing the One Eleven V-Neck London Tee in White, size L.  It has a relaxed fit and the sleeves are just right.  I wore it with the front tucked into my favorite light wash skinny jeans, but you can also wear it loose or knotted.  You can shop some of my other favorites from the collection, including more from the London Shop, above.  the fit is true-to-size, but note that some pieces are meant to have an oversized look.
