Look For Less: Varsity Tee




Every time I find a fun top or cute sweater at a more expensive place like J.Crew, I almost always check a few other places to see if they have similar versions for less expensive alternatives. For trendy pieces, like this gray varsity tee for example, Old Navy happened to have the exact same thing for so much less money, a total win in my book. Especially when items of clothing won't be in style forever, I always opt for the less expensive version. Even though the quality probably isn't as amazing as a much more pricy version, how many times will I actually wear a varsity tee anyway? 

Do you find less expensive alternatives too? Or do you go for the better quality piece? Let's chat in the comments below!

  1. I completely agree, if the piece is more on the trendy side I always look for an inexpensive alternative or wait for it to hit the clearance rack! In the past year, I feel like Old Navy has had a ton of J. Crew dupes which is always great!

  2. Old Navy is my go-to place for almost everything. If I'm buying a nice cable knit I will invest elsewhere, but for shorts, tshirts, and like you said trendy pieces, Old Navy and Gap are two of my favorite places to look.

  4. For pieces I know I can wear more than one season, I try to go for the higher end item since I know it will last longer! But for trendier items, like a fur vest, I try to find an inexpensive version first to see if it's worth it!
