“ Brand: Love Label / Type: T-Shirt „
I'm a bit of a sucker for anything with stars on, and black with silver or white stars is a winning combination for me (I currently have 5 different black tops with stars on!), so when I saw this on the Very website I just had to have it. It costs £18 which is a reasonable price for a high quality T-shirt.
The T-shirt is black with a star print on the front and a plain back. The stars are white but they have bits intentionally missing form them, which looks almost like it's not printed properly, but you can tell it's intentionally like that and it adds character and interest. It has both large and small stars on it and they are quite randomly placed which I think looks a bit more interesting than if they were all the same size and evenly distributed over the tee. I love the design and I think it's very stylish.
It's available in sizes 6 - 20 which is a fairly good range of sizes, especially as a lot of clothes don't go all the way down to a 6. I usually wear a size 10 so that's the size I ordered and my first impression was that it's huge and shapeless. However, as I bought it with the intention of wearing it tucked into skirts the actual shape of it didn't really matter, so I tried it on tucked into a pencil skirt and it looked just how I'd imagined it would. It doesn't look exactly as in the picture, but then again I have a fuller figure than the model so I wouldn't expect it to hang the same on me. It looks great though and the fact that it's quite baggy gives me a little more volume up top and balances out my hips, which a tight top wouldn't. Of course if you wanted a tighter fit there's plenty of space to go down a size or 2. The sleeves are not as long as they look in the picture, I'd actually describe it as a sleeveless T-shirt whereas in the picture it has definite sleeves.
The material is really lovely and soft and feels very high quality, it's thick and not at all see-through. Because it's lovely and soft it would make a nice top to wear to bed if you felt it was too baggy to wear out. It is very comfortable and I could easily wear this all day every day without feeling uncomfortable, so it would make a great lounging around top too. However, I find it looks really good with a chunky belt around the waist to cinch it in, and it's a look that can be made casual or more dressy depending on how you accessorise it.
I have washed this several times and it has remained just as lovely and soft as when I first bought it, and it's it's also kept it's colour and shape. I often find that printed designs begin to wear off quite quickly but this one doesn't show any signs of budging. All in all this is a high quality and stylish tee which, as long as you know how to wear it, is very versatile and I'd definitely recommend it.
