Tapered Collection + Link Up

A great fitting tee is a must have, yet, it can be hard to find.  You would think that something so basic would be easy to shop for, but in reality, sometimes it's the hardest.  I'm more picky when it comes to my tee shirts than most of my other blouses.  Not only does the fit have to be just right (not too tight, yet not too baggy), but the material makes a huge difference.  Is it soft, comfortable, easy to clean, and most important, non-see through?  I often find myself finding only one or the other.  I'll love the fit, but it will be way too sheer, or it's not see through, but I hate the way it lays on my body.  There are a few brands that have become my go-to for tee shirts, and just recently, Tapered Collection was added to that list.  As a local Massachusetts company, which makes me like the brand more, they reached out to me to try some of their shirts, and I'm so happy they did.  Not only are the cut and thickness of their tee shirts perfect, but I love they way that they drape on my body.  Tapered Collection uses only high quality, 100% Supima Cotton, which you feel when you're wearing their products.  I also love that they're pre-shrunk, so you can go ahead and throw them in the dryer (a mom plus), and garment-dyed, so the color won't fade.  You can tell just by looking at Tapered Collection shirts that they are a better quality, so I decided to dress this navy v-neck up with a stripe midi skirt.  I added some gold necklaces and heeled sandals for an easy, feminine look.  What are some of your favorite tee shirt lines?

  7. I agree, it is so hard to find the perfect tee! I usually order a size up on my tees, just because I don't want them to be too tight and sometimes they shrink after that first wash! Tapered Collection sounds worth checking out. I love that striped midi on you!


  8. You are so summer cool! I love those dainty necklaces too. Loved how you styled them with this look! Happy weekend! :) XO



  9. I agree a great well-made 100% cotton tee that is not see-through is hard to find. Great you collaborated with a local brand and found a great t-shirt. Love how you dressed it up. That midi button-up skirt is awesome! In my current wardrobe capsule I made sure to include several navy pieces. Love navy for Summer!

    Happy weekend Rachael!

  20. I can immediately see how well-made your tee is, Rachael. It lies so smoothly!! And the light picks up on how saturated the colour is as well, what a great partnership xo
