I was never really a t-shirt person to begin with as I tend to gravitate towards midi dresses or more feminine shirt blouses. However I was always curious about whether logo tees are worth the hype. I have been eyeing this trend for a while as it looks so effortless chic. I can imagine that this tank would be the perfect top to pack away for travelling or just for casual weekends. Summer is just around the corner so this piece will do great for everyday wear.
The Balmain shirts come in 2 main styles- the T-shirt and the tank style and I do prefer the tank version. There are so many different colours to choose from but my favourites are white and black as they are probably the most versatile colours. You can choose either gold or silver hardware for the foil lettering and the buttons. Both of my black and white shirts are in gold hardware but I am definitely considering something in silver further down the track.
For sizing info , I wear size 34 (which I believe is equivalent to AU 6 to 8 or an XS) which fits just right for my petite 5 feet 2 frame. Thanks to Isabelle from mystyleexperiment.com for her accurate sizing info! (check out her amazing youtube channel here!)

Whenever I go travelling, I like to wear or pack something that does not crease easily. At the same time I want to feel comfortable and still look put together. This Balmain tank is such a simple cotton jersey tank but I think what makes this top so unique is the way it is cut, which gives a more flattering silhouette compared to a plain tee. The golden buttons add a subtle touch of lux without being too over dramatic.
