“ Brand: New Look / Type: T-shirt „
New Look recently had a massive sale and although I already own way too many tee shirts, I decided to get this anyway as it's so cute - and the fact that it was reduced made it even harder to resist! This retails at £7.99 and I managed to get mine for a bargainous £3.50, although the full price is still pretty cheap in my opinion. The tee shirt is available online via New Look's website as well as in store.
This is a basic white tee shirt with oversized sleeves, a wide scooped neck and a motif, which as you can see from the above picture is a picture of a panda. The panda has an adorable moustache as well as a large red heart on its torso. The picture is really cute, but it is quite childish and I don't think that it looks quite right on me considering my age (20). I do like motif tops but this one is quite 'young' and would look better on a child or young teenager, however it is actually in the women's section.
I've worn this a few times with jeans and a cardi but in my opinion it's best suited to being worn around the house to do house work in or as a pyjama top. It's a very comfortable top with soft, silky smooth material and although it's quite well fitting it's not uncomfortably tight or unflattering. The top's sleeves are normal tee shirt length but they're oversized and flick out, which I think is a nice design. It isn't very long and mine comes just past the waistband on my jeans, meaning it isn't really suitable for wearing with leggings unless it's layered under a long cardi or jacket.
The top is available in sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16. As I said it is quite figure hugging so I would recommend getting a size larger than your usual size if you are buying this for casual wear. The tee shirt is 100 percent cotton and although the material is quite thin and lightweight, it's not at all sheer or paper thin and it keeps me pretty warm although in winter it will obviously need layering.
The top is machine washable and I've washed mine around three times. Stains don't come out particullary well and the panda picture has already started to fade a little, which is dissapointing but considering the price I wasn't expecting it to be amazing quality! It has kept its shape though and it's not shrunk.
Overall, this is a good quality casual tee shirt, but the print is a little too childish for me personally.
