You’ve probably seen this trend on Instagram by now and if you haven’t, you’ll still love it! Who doesn’t love a new t-shirt trend!? I’ve mentioned multiple times that when shopping for basics (like tees), you should look for style details that ELEVATE the basics. The hottest t-shirt trend does just that!
Structured Muscle T-Shirt Trend
Structured muscle tees…yes, muscle tees …like from 80s! But now they’re way cooler and actually super stylish! Muscle tees now have cool structured shoulders and a more modern shape.
We’re seeing this new structured muscle tee style everywhere! Possibly the most popular (and considered the starter of the trend) is Frankie Shop’s version of the t-shirt. Their tee is $75 and I didn’t want to spend that much on a t-shirt trend I wasn’t sure I’d like. See what I bought instead…
To try the trend for less, I got the Express bodysuit version and LOVE it! I’m a big fan of bodysuits with jeans…you don’t have the hassle of pulling down your shirt to keep it tucked in and it doesn’t add any bulk to your lower tummy from excess material.
This bodysuit has padded shoulders and capped sleeves. The padded shoulders help build up my shoulders which is a must for a rectangular body shape. I paired it with high waist jeans and booties. That’s the beauty of this new trend…you can pair an elevated basic with jeans and booties/sneakers and have a simple but stylish outfit!
