BACK TO BASICS: Slouchy Tees

Ba·sic (bsk) adj.

1. An essential, fundamental element or entity

2. (Usually plural) a necessary commodity for which demand is constant

Slouchy Tees: they're comfortable, AND sexy...what could be better? The perfect tee will cling to curves in just the right spots, and drape easily over shoulders and take you seamlessly from day to night. The perfect tee reads effortlessly cool, carelessly chic, and elegantly edgy. The perfect tee is...essential.

Add a fashion forward edge and dress down any look by pairing it with a slouchy tee: Rock it tucked into a micro-miniskirt or high waisted pants, toss it on with a pair of shredded jeans and heels, or layer it under a blazer and a bunch of necklaces. Throw it on over leggings with a hot pair of boots - just make sure it's long enough to cover most of your tush and the "ahem" other side...nobody wants to a sneak peak at your goodies.

The key to keeping the look sexy not sloppy is to choose a style with a low neckline (deep-v or off the shoulder styles are great) and keep the bottom and/or other elements of the outfit sleek. And always go for a super thin fabric that will be slinky on your skin.

Everybody and their mother has their own version of the perfect slouchy tee, from Kain to Alexander Wang, The Row to Haute Hippie. But who wants to blow a bunch of cash on such a simple basic? Here are a few options that you can actually stock up on:


Psst: STYLE TIP: Sometimes sizing up will take a top from moderate to modern - try a size larger than you would normally wear to add slouch to an otherwise more fitted T.
