Long, lean, and slightly slouchy, this wardrobe essential is designed for any fluid, drape-y knit or jersey fabric...try tissue weight or mesh knits, silk-y jersey or lightweight open-weave sweater knits. Fibers to look for include rayon, viscose, modal, silk, bamboo, merino and cashmere. Relaxed-fit T-Shirts have a gently shaped silhouette, optional breast pocket(s), self fabric trim at the neckline and finish at the thigh. Choose a short, 3/4 length or extra long sleeve; try a solid, bi-color or color-blocked body; and select a wide scoop, relaxed ‘V’, or classic boat-neck for your personalized, one-of-a-kind T-Shirt shape. This modern classic is perfect for year round wear, and it’s a great layering piece. Wear it loose over jeans or pants for a casual look, or for a more dressy outfit, try it with any straight-cut pants, jeans or skirt...just tuck it in, and gently blouse it over the waistband. Gorgeous!
