J.Crew Cashmere Long Sleeve Tee
Long sleeve tees are a closet staple. Often bought in multiples, perhaps at the lowest price that will get the job done, and replaced yearly. We all know how it goes. But, what about investing in a long sleeve tee that you'll wear for years and be proud to show off as a primary, rather than base, layer?

The J.Crew Cashmere Long Sleeve Tee is going to set you back more than a pack of plain white tees from the discount store. But, it's also a high quality wardrobe addition that will last more than one season. It's made from J.Crew's legendary cashmere, which is sourced from the same Italian mill as Loro Piana's cashmere. The 12-gauge knit is feather-light, making it great for Spring and even cooler Summer nights. And it comes in 11 different super saturated colors, including some of this season's must-haves like bright pink and bold red.

Wear this simple, yet decadent tee under jackets and blazers for work. It would also look great with shorts, or even over top of your bikini while lounging poolside (try ordering up a size for the perfect cover-up fit). I think the Capri Pink (pictured here) and Bright Persimmon are the must-have colors, but if a trendy bright is too much of a splurge, try investing in a neutral like basic Black or Heather Flax. A cashmere tee in a color that you personally find irresistible is a wise sartorial investment that you won't regret.
