I am a woman constantly on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans and the perfect t-shirt. While I’m still on the quest for the jeans, thanks to my dear friend Dina Fierro from the fab blog eye4style (get into it if you haven’t already) my search for the perfect tee has now come to a close.
Ladies, say hello to my little friend: the American Apparel Sheer Jersey Short Sleeve Deep V-Neck. Don’t be afraid of the man on the cover. He’s a lithe little thing so while it is unisex, unless your guy is long and somewhat slender, this is really a shirt for us in my opinion. Although, if you have an adorable gay boyfriend, you could be convinced to share in a pinch. I’m just saying.
Made of super, SUPER soft sheer jersey (it’s not transparent, don’t worry,) the shirt has short sleeves that are closer to the arm than most “unisex” tees which means they’re uber flattering just like with the styles from Jasper Holland Co. The silhouette is cut close to the body but it’s not body hugging, giving you that long, lean look. Best of all is the deep V-neck. If you don’t have cleavage, it will look super chic. If you have cleavage, it will look alluring. If you have a good push-up bra, feel free to dance between the two options as you see fit.
They come in tons of colors as well as patterns (stripes, anyone?) and are perfect for summer fun and/or year-round layering. I purchased three on my first trip (black, white and kelly green) and I plan on going back for more.
Rest your weary soles and souls, t-shirt lovers: the search for the perfect t-shirt is now over.
