Flattering & Easy to Wear

Two weeks ago I ordered a few new $25 striped t-shirts from Madewell on a hope and a prayer. I was cleaning out my closet and realized that my striped tees were becoming a little, well, unimpressive. I wear the heck out of my striped t-shirts since they practically go with everything. But the two short sleeved shirts I owned were a few years old, and one even embarrassingly had an espresso stain on it that I couldn’t get out… so needless to say, it was time.

I popped over to J.Crew to see if they had anything, and honestly, I wasn’t impressed with the striped selection. My go-to t-shirts are these by J.Crew and I have them in like 6 colors because they seriously SUCH a great fit. I can’t recommend them enough, but like I said, I wasn’t digging the stripes. So I went to the next best thing, Madewell.

I’ve been falling in love with Madewell lately and have been seriously into these overalls (I wear them 2xs a week, true story) plus a handful of other things I’ve recently scooped up, but I hadn’t ever tried their t-shirts! After a little research I decided to go with their Whisper Tees ($25!!) and, wow, I’m glad I did! They are so light weight, flattering, longer, and just all around a good fit. I ordered a couple of them (both in a size small) and I’ve completely fallen in love with both.

If you are looking to up your relaxed fit striped shirt game, these are the ones you should go with!

Pro Tip: If you can’t find your size, try Nordstrom’s Selection here or ShopBop’s selection here!

    Thanks for the recommendation. I never met a stripe I didn’t love

    Great suggestions! Which size do you wear in the J.Crew t-shirt?
