“ Brand: New Look / Type: Vest „
I've been stocking up on summer clothes over the past couple of months and came across these particular tee shirts in my local New Look a few weekends back. I love the design of them as they're very simple and basic but the zip detailing adds a nice bit of 'character' to the top, making it look that bit more unique and different than plain tee shirts. I bought two of these (one in each colour) and they were priced at a reasonable £6.99 each. Considering the quality and versatility of these tee shirts I think that £6.99 is an absolute bargain - imagine what Topshop would charge for a similar top!
These T shirts are available in two colours - coral (a pale peachy pink) and stone, which is an off-white shade. Both colours are basic and I would of loved a brighter shade such as green or yellow, so the lack of choice when it comes to colour options is a minor disadvantage. The design of the T shirt is reasonably basic which is understandable considering how cheap they are. The top has short tee shirt length sleeves, a very wide scooped neck and zip detailing on the chest area. I love the small details such as the stitch detailing on the neckline and the capped sleeves, and I also like the length as it's just right - not too long and not too short.
I also love how open the top is due to the wide, scooped neckline - it shows off a bit of flesh but not too much and it also makes the top ideal for summer. The top is very versatile and goes well with almost anything. It can be layered under a cardi or blazer in cooler weather or on its own in the summer. Just lately I've been wearing it with skinny jeans but it also looks nice with some denim shorts. I love how lightweight and soft the material is, however due to how thin the material is it is quite sheer meaning it's important to remember to wear a pale coloured bandeau or bra underneath.
The top is quite well fitting and shows my curves off nicely as it seems to cling to my hips but the sleeves are quite loose. I bought the T shirts in my usual size, however if I purchase another one (which I probably will) I would probably opt for a size bigger as I prefer more relaxed fitting tops, although I do still like the fit of the top as it's flattering. Sizes available are 6-18.
The t shirt is machine washable and washes well. It is made of 85% polyester and 15% linen. I would overall highly reccomend these tee shirts as they're versatile, comfy and very lightweight, which makes them fab for pairing with a nice pair of shorts in the current weather for a casual outfit.
