Top Pick: Helmut Feather Jersey Tee

Helmut Feather Jersey Tee
After dancing around Helmut Lang’s new, lower-priced capsule collection for a few months, I’ve finally settled on a first purchase. This new Helmut Feather Jersey Tee perfectly captures the minimalist aesthetic of Helmut Lang in an affordable piece ideal for layering in fall and winter, and will still be perfectly wearable next spring.

This lightweight cowl neck tee is crafted from the label’s signature featherweight modal/ pima blend jersey for beautiful drape and crazy comfort. The cap sleeves and shirttail hem, which falls just below the hip and a little longer in back, make this tee out of the ordinary, even when worn on its own.

But, it’s the layering possibilities that have me excited. First, I’d try this tee under a shrunken blazer – the cowl neck and hem will stick out in a good way. For colder days, a super slim long sleeve tee could go under, with a short sleeve cardigan over. Once summer rolls around again, just throw the tee on with a pencil skirt or skinny trousers and bootie pumps and you’ve got a great everyday outfit.
