The Perfect Staple Tee*... For You OR Your Fella

Sometimes, I wear men's clothes. AND I'M PROUD. In fact, I know a number of girls who do. I always head straight over to the men's sportswear, loungewear, t-shirt and vest sections in River Island, Primark or any sportswear departments I happen to step foot in. I love the versatility of men's clothing. Buying a top or a vest designed for a bloke in a size medium or large [for me] makes for a gorgeous oversized t-shirt dress or longer vest to wear with leggings / skinny jeans. They're so comfy - PLUS it dramatically reduces the chances of me bumping into another girl at a party wearing the same outfit [though her boyfriend, not so much.]



Recently, I was offered the chance to receive and review a top of my choice from a fab online store called Reem Clothing

They say: 'Shopping at Reemclothing.com lets you enjoy the convenience and cost savings associated with online shopping  - without compromising on the high levels of service and security you would expect from a top class high street retailer. And all without leaving the comfort of your own home.

And that sounds bloody perfect to me!

I'll be honest - it was really hard to choose, as there were a number of tops I was perving over during the selection process [not to mention the models wearing them. Holy hell.] But in the end, I ended up receiving this one, the Ellesse Prado AW15 t-shirt* in a size medium. It costs just £20 to buy [which I thought was really reasonable for a brand] and I LOVE it. It's so comfy, soft and vintage looking - and there's so many ways to style it. It's become my go-to staple piece.





Aside from just being worn on a man in a manly way [which also looks fit], this little vintage-esque number can be styled in so many ways. I have taken to throwing it on when I finish work of an evening or for when I'm about to get my blog on, but men's clothing has so many possibilities for us birds.

For example, it looks great worn as an oversized t-shirt dress; for that vintage, sports luxe look that's all the rage right now. Because I'm a bit of a a whopper, this is a little short on me to wear as a dress on its own so I'd need to go up a size - so instead, I might tuck it into a bodycon skirt or pair of shorts and wear it that way, instead. I primarily chose this piece to wear as a top, but I just wanted to show you guys how fab it would also be as a dress.



It also looks fab worn with leggings or skinny jeans during the day - for shopping, a day out, coffee with mates, heading off to Asda to do the weekly shop or, like what my life consists of atm, for queuing for about 6 years at the Post Office


And of course - it's the perfect essential for the gym. Throw this on with a pair of sports tights / leggings / joggers / shorts - and you're good to go. I normally feel like a bit of a beast in my gym stuff - it's not particularly flattering, but this is a game changer. 



Plus, I LOVE a bloke in a grey piece of clothing. Grey suits legit send me weak at the knees [although my legs are a bit weak anyway I guess, given all the breaking and dislocating I've been subject to these past few years!] So I might even consider sharing it.

Reem Clothing have such a fab range of literally every branded men's clothing you could choose from - and not like, chavvy Ste from Hollyoaks type clothes either; vintage looking, stylish menswear. There's a number of pieces that straight away caught my eye as potential Christmas pressies for the [sort of] male in my life, as well as plenty of other garments which I don't doubt we'd both get some wear out of. So whether you choose to treat yourself OR your fella, you'll defo find something at a great price at Reem Clothing. Cheers guys!
