Classic Pieces: The Luxe Tee

There are some garments which just scream “look at me”. Invariably, those are the pieces we are drawn to, be it a pair of bold jeans, a new season leather jacket or the shoes you just had to have. Then there are the quiet, modest garments. The ones which sit comfortably, quietly confident that they are the pieces which you’ll always come back to again and again. These humble garments are a girl’s best friend, even if you don’t know it yet. Step forward, The Luxe Tee.

There are some items you don’t even need to think about owning, some pieces are just a given. In the same way that you need a pair of blue jeans, you need a luxe tee. It’s a simple piece which will last you years, transcending seasonal trends to provide you with a wardrobe staple. If you invest in just one piece from this Stylefile series so far, it should undoubtedly be the luxe tee. It’s the ultimate fail-safe garment, when you’re in a mad rush to get to work you can always depend on a luxe tee to sit perfectly with your favourite jeans, trousers or skirt. Even if you’re running late to a dinner or an event in the evening (which I often am), a luxe tee will translate from day to night style with ease, just swap your boots for heels and you’re ready. Luxe tees are the supporting act of any outfit, there to complement other pieces not to distract attention. My favourite luxe tee from this season is from the Helmut by Helmut Lang collection, the diffusion line of Helmut Lang. With a scoop neck and rounded hem in a supremely soft jersey, it comes in two colours and is the ultimate luxe tee from this season’s collections. When you’re searching for your perfect luxe tee, always check the fabric content as cheaper fabrics could lead to twisted seams and fine holes when you wash it. The most luxurious fabrics for tees are cotton and silk, so look for things with high quantities of those!
