Last week, Ask Teri of the WSJ reiterated that V-necks look great on us, so when I found this V-neck t-shirt at Talbots, I bought two: first, because I can never have enough classic tees that can be dressed up; and second, because the second shirt was 50% off. I’ve written here and here about my search for the perfect tee (looking at that first entry, I can’t believe I didn’t buy the items on my wish list back in April!).

So far, this shirt doesn’t suffer from the Strum Strum Factor, but I’ll let you know if that’s still true after I wear it to dinner tonight. Another good feature: the V-neck isn’t too deep. When I wore an earlier sleeveless version of this t-shirt last week, my cleavage got a lot of attention. That won’t be happening with this version.

This shirt doesn’t come in white, but if you’re lucky, you’ll find your size in black, ruby or blue. Talbots also has a versatile paisley version if you’re tired of solids.
