For every tee purchased, Amour Vert promises to plant a tree in return. So far, the sustainable fashion company has planted over 100K trees to help restore forests after timber harvests. I love their environmental contribution and conscious manufacturing. But beyond their great mission, is their tee worth buying? I must admit, it’s difficult to spend almost $100 on a classic tee from just browsing on the internet. But after I touched and tried on a Amour Vert tee myself, I am a big fan of this U.S. based sustainable fashion brand!
Sustainable Fashion Review: Amour Vert Striped Tee
I actually borrowed this Amour Vert French Tee from a friend, and she let me style it for this review. (Thanks, Melanie!)
From my first impression, the Amour Vert French Tee feels incredibly soft and substantial. As mentioned on the website, Amour Vert only sources high quality, responsibly-made fabrics, and this tee is made with organic cotton. The tee is moderately thick, and it’s form-fitted. I love this type of fit because I can tuck it in and layer with it. But if you prefer a looser fit, you can opt for a similar style from other sustainable fashion brands. For my U.K. and European readers, you can find a similar style on PeopleTree: here, here, here. For my U.S. readers, you can find a similar style on Patagonia, and Everlane. Side note, Nordstrom now carries Everlane in store! 🙂
When I am presented with the opportunity, I always opt for organic cotton over traditional cotton. You can learn more about organic cotton here: Organic Cotton v.s. Traditional Cotton.
How to Style a Striped Tee
A classic striped tee is timeless and versatile. For classic items, it’s worth spending more on because you will wear them a lot. Below, I have gathered some of my favorite outfit ideas to help you style a striped tee from summer to winter!

Winter means layers, layers and layers. You can layer a striped tee underneath a button up or a sweater. For street looks, you can also wear a leather jacket over it. For office looks, a blazer or a cardigan will do as well.
Of course, there are so many other ways to pair a striped tee – with jeans, denim shorts, pencil skirts, or even a coveralls, etc. You get the idea. Striped tee may be “basic”, but it’s worth investing in a high quality one because of its classic style and versatility. I hope you enjoy this post! Please let me know if you have other sustainable fashion brands that you may be interested. I will try to do a review about them!
Smile and style on!
