Cozy Casual

by Jessica Sturdy on December 13, 2012

I had always heard good things about T by Alexander Wang tees, but had never wanted to splurge and pay $85 on a basic tee. But it was marked down to $36 on The Outnet so I pulled the trigger! And OMG — I am OBSESSED.

When I opened up the package and put this shirt on, it was like I’d found “the one.” I have very high expectations when it comes to this kind of thing. I mean, we’re going to be spending a lot of time together. I don’t want to have to toss this one to the curb and start the hunt of finding my perfect fit anytime in the near future, ya know?

This tee is the softest, most comfy tee I own. It is the PERFECT amount of slouchy-ness without looking too baggy. It keeps it’s shape all day long and then some. The sleeves are the perfect length, as I like mine a little bit on the longer side. Overall, the shirt is a bit longer, but again, it’s perfect for that slouchy-on-purpose look. And the arms are perfect… not too tight, not too loose. (I ordered a medium, FYI.)

Now if only I could find this type of perfection in a man…

T By Alexander Wang Tee / LOFT Gray Denim / LOFT Open-Knit Cardigan (similar) / gifted HSN Scarf / Dodo’ Le Parisienne Navy Glitter Flats (on sale for $49) / JustFab Tote / Essie Butler Please Polish / Sequin Silver Buckle Bracelet / Kristin Hassan (now House of Gemmes) Bracelet / Michael Kors Watch

Thanks for taking my pictures, Jen & Tracy!

Love this! The colors work so well together, and you absolutely look cozy and comfortable, but still put together.

Love the navy & gray together! After reading your review, I’m now on the hunt for one of those tees too! Looks super comfy.

This outfit is something I would wear on the weekends, I love it. You look so comfy yet polished. I have always wanted to try T By Alexander Wang as I too have heard fabulous things about them, but could not justify the price. The Outnet is a great choice that I totally forgot about, thanks for sharing! Also, I drool over that bag every time it’s in a post…

Have a great Thursday!

Best, Lara
