I am the Goldilocks of t-shirts. This one is too sheer, that one is too boxy, this one has a weird neckline, that one is a centimeter too short, and so on and so forth. Every summer starts with an optimistic scouting spree, and ends with a drawer full of B- options. Until I discovered what just may be the most perfect tee-shirt to date- the Linen Timeoff Teefrom Madewell.
What makes it worthy of bulk buying? The draping is reason numero uno- I love the connection between the way the scoop neck falls and the shape of the shirt follows- hanging off the body in a long, lean and flattering way. It is cut a tad shorter in the front so as to be perfectly suited to casual but chic half-tuck styling. The linen is textured- giving the effect of a burnout tee without the "hey guys look at my bra!" factor.
Check out all the color options here. I own a combo of extra smalls and smalls, they run true to size, however if you really love the supermodel-off-duty-hanging-off-your-body look, you may want to go up a size. I have been wearing these with every single thing in my closet- truly one of the only tee-shirts I have found that really can be dressed up or down in a million ways.
