I’ve been trying to be more grown up with my wardrobe.
According to fashion experts, that means I need “good basics”.
Apparently my so-worn-they’re-almost-grey white t-shirts with sweat patches under the arm don’t qualify. Go figure.
However I’ve quickly realised that “good basics” often mean “very expensive”…and while I have no problem paying for high quality items, sometimes the almost three figure price tag for what is a plain white t-shirt that will eventually go the same way as my other t-shirts seems a little steep.
Then I walked into Uniqlo and found ‘the one’.
It’s great quality, has a flattering neckline even for big boobs and it costs less than your Saturday brunch.
Yes, the Women’s Uniqlo U Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt, $14.95, is the plain t-shirt your wardrobe has been missing.
The cotton feels thick and high quality and the straight cut is slim enough that it doesn't look shapeless. The sleeves are a nice length and the slightly thicker band detailing around the high neckline makes it a flattering one.
