One of my favorite closet staples is the heathered grey t-shirt (heathered meaning the tiny specks in the grey that give it that vintage feel). I wear them with cutoffs and distressed boyfriend jeans, under a blazer with black skinnies, with lacey skirts to offset the too feminine vibe, and like shown here, with a leather mini (or leather skinnies in fall/winter). A grey tee literally goes with EVERYTHING.
The key is finding the right one. It can’t be too big and baggy, or too tight and fitted…it can’t look too athletic, or it will be mistaken for a gym piece…it has to look broken in and worn, but not like its ready for the rag bin…and guys, seriously, Suburban Riot makes this perfect, holy grail of grey t-shirts– and extra points, they say funny, tongue-in-cheek things that make you smile (I have two- my “Kale” one, and this “Happy Camper” one shown here). Now, I happen to like a funny t-shirt every now and then; I know they’re not for everyone– a plain grey tee works the same magic (and I have a couple of those too), but I figure if your t-shirt can make you or someone else smile, why not? This Happy Camper tee, found at Nordstrom, by Suburban Riot, is the perfect slouchy yet feminine, feels like it’s been washed 55858 times, worn and soft grey– I can’t stop wearing it and I’m so happy to share it with you guys here!
