As usual, I had been eyeing the Cuyana Oversized Alpaca Sweater for a while… I feel like this opening phrase is now standard for most of my review posts. I’m trying to be more conscious about what I add to my closet these past few seasons. I try to adhere to a one-in-one-out policy, though there are exceptions if I really love a piece and it’ll be something I wear regularly. When possible, I also try to buy second-hand – sometimes, this is my only choice if I’m looking for a retired piece like the retired Everlane silk tanks.

Over the years, my work wardrobe has become more and more predictable. I mainly wear the same three items daily only slightly modified: white t-shirt, black jeans and flats or loafers. I’ve tried to spruce things up with a Rent the Runway Unlimited subscription or my shoe choice (like a colorful pair of Rothy’s or Birdies), but I more or less stick to the same.
Unsurprisingly, I’ve gathered quite a few white tees over the years and decided it was time to compare them to each other. Today, I’ll be reviewing:
Note: These items were provided courtesy of Mott & Bow with no strings attached.
When the Mott & Bow team initially reached out to me, I was unfamiliar with the brand. I did a quick browse of their website and liked what I saw with their basics aesthetic in neutral colors. I decided to try out their Bond High Rise Skinny Jeans, Cashmere Raglan Crew and Boxy Semi-Crop Tee, which matches my standard outfit of black jeans with white or grey tops.
In this post, I’ll focus on the jeans and sweater styled above – more on the t-shirt in another post!
