But a few months ago, it finally dawned on me to check Amazon for a budget-friendly dupe. Sure, Amazon might be where you order your selfie light and drawer organizers; however, it’s also a great place to stock up on trendy pieces for less. As luck would have it, I was able to find the Meladyan Solid Cotton Padded Shoulder Sleeveless Tee ($19-$20) for a fraction of the price.
Don’t let its exaggerated shoulders fool you: this dupe fits and feels just like every other tee I own. The only difference is that this shirt is slightly nipped at the waist, so I would recommend tucking it into your favorite pair of baggy jeans. But unlike the other T-shirts I own, this one’s surprisingly elevated. I can just slip this top on, add some pants, and instantly feel like a cool girl. (I always wear this top with my favorite joggers when I travel, and I’d like to think I make my flights’ best dressed lists every time.)
But what I love most about this shirt is the quality. Sure, $20 might be expensive for a simple tee, but it’s on the cheaper side for this trend. I was a little worried it wouldn’t hold up well in the laundry; however, I’m pleased to report that my skepticism has been left unfounded. Not only has this shirt retained its shape after a few washes, but the shoulder pads are also intact.
Oh, and did I mention it comes in a bunch of colors? As of now, I only have this shirt in white, but I’m definitely filling my cart with a few more. I mean, when you find something that’s cute, comfortable, and chic, it’s a no-brainer.
