Style Fixer: Best t-shirts in the heat
Whilst YUNION T t-shirts are designed to be season-less, part of your wardrobe staples all-year-round, they truly come into their own in summer months.
We've talked about how effortlessly they pair with summer wardrobe pieces - layered under slip dresses, paired with maxi skirts or simply with some denim cut offs and slides for an effortless, classic summer style.
But what is it about our bespoke design that makes them so perfect in the heat?
Fit & Feel
It's often tempting to opt for linen-blend tees in the height of summer, but whilst road-testing 100s of fabrics we soon realised that linen tees are not only MASSIVELY see-through (see below), but they lose their shape quickly. Focussed on creating a t-shirt that would last more than a few washes we opted for a cotton/lycra blend. The shot of lycra ensured a comfortable, responsive fit that moves with the body and is effortless to wear. Feedback from women found that many felt body-conscious when 'just wearing a t-shirt', with many feeling they had to wear a cardi, shirt or blazer on top. When cutting the pattern for YUNION T t-shirts, we wanted to create a t-shirt that stood alone and was cut like a top, not a base layer. A slightly longer, more flattering length on the short sleeves, dipped hem and curve-skimming body all make for a tee that you can stand proud in.
100% non-see through
Our premium-weight fabric ensures our tees are 100% non-see-through - a HUGE bugbear of ours with many white tees; yet crucially it doesn't make them bulkier OR hotter in summer months. The super-soft fabric is more densely woven to ensure its opacity - think high thread-count sheets - cool to the touch, its 92% cotton to keep it breathable and comfortable in the heat.
