T-shirts are a basic we wear day in, day out, whatever the weather or season. 

But for those looking for a more stylish alternative to the classic design, Marks and Spencer has you covered. 

Linen is the perfect fabric for summer, as it's lightweight and breathable, and M&S has combined all of our needs into one in the Linen V-Neck Relaxed T-Shirt, which we predict will be one of the products of the season.

Why we rate it

The Linen V-Neck Relaxed T-Shirt ticks all the boxes, and is a versatile number you can dress up or down. 

This design is made from a linen-rich fabric, a washable blend of linen and polyester.

It offers a relaxed fit, short sleeves, and is flatteringly cut to drape, not cling.

This tee also features a pretty lace trim on the v neckline. 

It comes in five colours: White, yellow, pink, dark blue and light blue, although the latter has already sold out. 

It's available in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, and retails for £15 – very affordable for such a versatile piece. 

Whether you pair this t-shirt with a tracksuit, jeans and trainers, a skirt, or underneath a blazer, it will be the perfect choice.

What the reviews say

M&S' Linen V-Neck Relaxed T-Shirt has racked up a selection of positive reviews so far, here's what shoppers have to say. 

  • "Lovely v-necked linen top with wide lace trim. Generous fit and very good value for money."

  • "Bought a week ago, I'm very pleased with the material, it's not too thin and will be used quite often."

  • "Very nice T shirt, it will work well for Day or Night time wear. The neckline has nice edging ."

  • "I purchased this in the dark blue and am very pleased with the style, fabric and neck.'

  • "The dark blue is perfect! Lovely colour, nice material, spot-on sizing. The detail around the V-neck helps it stand out from a basic t-shirt. Wish there were more darker colours, as I'd definitely buy more."
