Testing Basics: Slouchy Black Tee’s

I recently found myself on the hunt for the perfect slouchy black tee, as summer is around the corner and all that. I bought one last year from Mr Price and found myself constantly grabbing it from the washing line, before it was even properly dry, so knew I wanted to invest in at least one more. I don’t like spending a tonne of money on these as they often need replacing, so kept them all under the R200 mark. Below you’ll find some really unflattering pics of me and my review of each that might save you some time should you also be on the hunt for the perfect basic tee.

Wishlist

These pants however might make it slightly more believable, or so I’d like to think. They aren’t something I’d normally gravitate towards and certainly don’t feel ‘safe’ for a conservative dresser like me, but it is kind of what I like about them. That and the great fit of course.  Paired with more feminine neutrals, I simply love the edge this adds to any look.DSC_3611 DSC_3590 DSC_3605
