In my August 2018 Closet Update, I mentioned that one of my new additions was a tunic that was kindly gifted from Loyale. I’ve been wearing it tucked into these pair of printed pants (that you’ll see in my September Closet Update), but with the relentless LA heat, I’m sure that you’ll see this tunic as a dress soon enough (I’m only 5’2″ after all).
Basic tees, specifically black basic tees, are a huge staple in my wardrobe. If we’re going to get technical, t-shirts make up almost 20% of my wardrobe–mostly from Everlane, sprinkled with a few old Madewell Whisper tees here and there. So when Jenny from Loyale offered me to try out her line of basic tees, I was thrilled! All of their tees are cut and sewn in North Carolina at a cooperative called Opportunity Threads that is worker-owned and is dedicated to being socially responsible and sustainable.
Because they value timeless design, Loyale currently only offers two styles: a ballet tee and a tunic. Both styles are seasonless and are classic staples that you can wear with most things in your wardrobe. I decided to go with the tunic (Style No. 2) because I knew that cooler weather wouldn’t arrive until after Halloween (and quite possibly until after Thanksgiving). It is incredibly soft and it drapes beautifully. It has fit seamlessly into my mostly monochromatic wardrobe and I know that this will be a piece that I will love for years to come. The boatneck is a new cut for my as typically I favor tees that are crew cut and a rare v-neck here and there, but I’ve been enjoying the bit of skin showing.
Later on this week, I’ll be hosting a giveaway on my Instagram for your chance to win one their tees, so be sure to be following me there so that you can enter! Good luck!
