Wednesday's Look for Less: Not So Basic Black Tee

Welcome to yet another addition of Wednesday's Look for Less. Today's topic? The not-so-basic black tee. I know, it's not exactly something you'd expect right before the 4th of July. You want stars and stripes and bangles and blue, right? All in good time...

For today, check out these two tasty tops. I, being a redhead, used to tremendously fear black, especially in the summertime. But recently I came around to the idea and feel that black is best worn in unexpected textures. In this case, these two tees are extremely lightweight and semi-sheer with just the hint of a geometric tribal pattern on each of them. So which one costs more?

These tees look almost identical but would you believe the tee on the right costs more than $400?? The Madewell tee rings in at $135. Either of these options would be great this summer- a classic shape but nod to trend in the tribal print and perfectly comfortable lightweight material. 


So what do you think? Is black too HAUTE for you this summer or just plain hot?


  1. I think you can never go wrong with a good black tee!

    1. I think you are right...a tee and a tan...
