It is no secret that I love clothes, hello a big reason I created Fried Fashions was because of my love for fashion and clothing. I love clothes because of the feeling they give you, it is that feeling of “man I feel good”. It is a form of happiness in my personal opinion and when you think you look good you are more likely to feel good! So when I find something that makes me feel good, I think it is only fair to share with others! You never know when something that makes you feel good and look good can also do that for someone else!
Today’s blog post is dedicated to the Perfect Shirt, and ironically the name of the shirt on the retailer’s site is actually The Perfect Shirt. I wanted to share my own personal review because as I have mentioned many times before, I believe in purchasing affordable pieces that can be styled multiple ways and worn for many occasions. This top comes in 6 different prints and I seriously want them all! I know for some, the $49 price tag is a little steep but for a style like this, I want to remind you, that these can transition from season to season and be styled so many different ways. I also want to add that this is a classic piece for your wardrobe so it will never go out of style. I personally like to use the cost per wear method. If I wear this 10 times, the cost goes down to $5 a wear and that is something I can live with :).
I absolutely love stripes, and if you looked in my closet you would see a ton of black and a ton of stripes. I chose these two patterns which fit both of those categories and I did this on purpose. Knowing myself and what I reach for every time is key. I know that I will always want to reach for black and stripes. In trendier styles, I like to branch out, but when it comes to daily work wear or even casual styles I like to stick with what I know. That also helps me to validate the price on an item that is more than I would like to spend because I know I am more likely to reach for it. Although I do have my eye on this one when I am ready to purchase another (I loved the washed color)!
I love the fit of this shirt, I am wearing size XS and it is the perfect lightweight blend with a slightly oversized fit. I also love the length! Because of the length, you can tie it up…which I cannot wait to do and pair with some cut off shorts when it gets warmer. I also love that I can pair with a skirt and be appropriate for work meetings. The options are endless when it comes to a classic style like this. I know that a lot of my readers have corporate jobs and I often get asked to do posts on work wear, and I think this is the perfect piece! Being that I also work a corporate job, I know that I will wear this to not only work but also for weekend plans!
I hope you enjoyed my review of this top, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask! Cute pup not linked 🙂
