Styling My Slim Fit H&M T-Shirts

Hey guys!

So in recent times in my fashion Friday round-ups, I’ve featured a few different packs of H&M Slim Fit T Shirts which they are selling. They’ve been around for a while, and I’ve always wondered what the fit would be like, so I’ve went out and bought some to see what I think.

As we know, the basic T-shirt is a great base to start any outfit. They’re versatile, and are the most humble but essential item of clothing you’ll ever buy.

There’s nothing you can’t do with a tee. You can dress up a T-shirt, you can wear it as a super casual piece, you can wear it on it’s own or layer it.

Since we’re getting into the Summer, we’ll all be wearing T-shirts a lot more.

The most important rule when it comes to style is the fit. I have always liked the slim fit versions of T-shirts, I just really like how they fit. (check out my men’s fit guide here)

They are definitely a smarter fit, and I like the fact that they’ve always got a tiny bit of stretch with elastane in them, which hugs to the body for that close fit, and overall they just feel better.

When it comes to quality they’re usually a touch better too. Why? Probably because they’re more fashion orientated, and aren’t just that standard T-shirt, so use slightly better cotton when they’re made.

With that said, what about the H&M Slim Fit T Shirts? Well…

The fit is good. When it comes to slim fits, I tend to go up a size when I get them. This time round I went for my usual size, which these days is usually small (in some cases medium) and I think that the fit is just on the more smaller side for my liking.

That said, it does fit, it’s just that my body shape is not athletic and toned, just average, so if you are toned and are a small, then it should be perfect. The fit works, but going forward I might opt for a medium to see if that is a slightly better fit.

Slim Fit T Shirts from H&M Sleeves

The sleeves fit nice too. For the standard T-shirt there can be a lot of fabric around the sleeves, especially if you have small arms, it’s just a waste of fabric and can look quite baggy.

The slim fit has fitted sleeves too, so they fit really nicely, in-keeping with the rest of the T-shirt, and fit well.

When it comes to colours, I wanted something other than black or white. I love black and white tees, they’re the perfect staple piece which you can wear with anything, but I’ve already got too many black and white tees.

So I went for this pack, which has the grey as seen, along with dark navy blue, and this dusty pink-ish colour which I think is good for summer.

Overall I have to say that the T-shirts are really nice. H&M usually do very nice T-shirts, they are super soft to touch, the fit is nice, and I like the colours.

The pack cost £17.99, so you’re talking at an average of £6 per tee, which I think is worth it. Will the tees hold up well after washing and last? Only time will tell.
