If there’s one thing my capsule wardrobe was not in need of, it’s another striped T-Shirt.
But this People Tree Organic Cotton T-Shirt is a bit special. I spotted it browsing on ASOS (mental note: must stop doing that) and it was one of those scenarios where the styling on the model completely drew me in. I almost certainly would have just forgotten about it if it hadn’t been for the fact that this brand’s pieces are ethically and sustainably made and their processes support the local rural communities that they are made in. I love supporting companies that have a great business ethos and so this T-Shirt has found its way into my wardrobe. Even though it’s got a fair bit of competition from my other striped tees, I think it’s going to get a lot of wear.
I absolutely love the boxy fit, the texture of the fabric and the contrast stripes on the sleeves. It’s simple yet has something about it that makes it very pleasing. The fact that it’s 100% cotton is a big plus point for me for breathability in warmer weather.
I’m wearing it today tucked into my Gap straight leg jeans with a satin floral print bomber from Marks & Spencer that I bought around Christmas time. This one isn’t available anymore but M&S have quite a few similar styles in stock here.
I don’t think there is an outfit that shouts Spring more than a floral print jacket over breton stripes with light wash denim.
