I think one thing we can agree on is that as girls, we are always on the hunt for the perfect t-shirt. The one you can throw on with just about anything and feel casual and put-together at the same time. At this point, I feel like I've been down this road many, many times. I started with the basic striped version from the Gap, graduated to American Apparel, then J. Crew, and in a weak moment at Barneys, was convinced that $150+ was totally justifiable for the "perfect" t-shirt (for the record, it is sooo not). Well, I've got my feet firmly planted again and with summer on its way, I'm looking for a go-to piece that will work with whatever my weekend plans may be. Enter Chance.

When I saw a mention of their shirts in the NYTimes, I went to Chance's website and immediately fell in love with the sweet video on their home page. And when I learned one of their t's was made in collaboration with artist Elliott Puckette, I was sold. Founded by Julia Leach, a former EVP and Creative Director at Kate Spade, Chance's aesthetic is the perfect blend of both classic and contemporary. Tanks, dresses, short-sleeved, and long-sleeved options abound in the Chance collection, all perfectly cut in an abundance of color ways and 100% pima cotton. Now choosing just one....that will be the challenge. Do you have a favorite t-shirts brand that you keep going back to again and again?
