Here's why reviewers are calling this $17 Amazon tee the 'perfect summer shirt'

You'll probably want it in several colors.

The days of oversized sweatshirts and everyday loungewear are officially behind us! Summer is here, and it's time to reach for those seasonal staples.

As the temperatures rise, you’ll likely want to keep your outfits simple and breathable, and we don’t blame you. A basic T-shirt is a summertime essential, and we found a tee that works for all occasions.

The Shop TODAY team got the chance to try out the bestselling YunJey Colorblock Stripe T-shirt, and we were immediately impressed with its soft fabric and breathable, flowing fit. We found that it runs true to size and has slightly more length than the average T-shirt, making it perfect for casual summer outfits.

This stylish top is available in nine different colors and six sizes. It has amassed more than 46,600 ratings from Amazon shoppers — and more than 30,000 of them are a perfect five stars. We also had five women of varying sizes try the tee, and you can see the results, below.

Because it's made from a cotton-blend material, it seems like it would be easy to wear in nearly any season, but the short sleeves make it perfect for the warmer months. Reviewers say that it's easy to style, and many added that they planned to purchase it in multiple colors.

We found that the top is best suited for running errands or lounging around the house, though one reviewer was able to dress it up for a business call.

"I was looking for a few tops that I could pair with a cardigan during Zoom meetings, and then be comfortable for the rest of the day," they wrote. "This shirt is very soft and flows nicely."

“I like the fact that it is not form-fitting. Very lightweight and cool for summer,” another verified reviewer wrote.

Most reviewers also found that the shirt runs true to size, so you should only consider sizing up if you're going for an even more casual, loose fit.

"I really like this top. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly," one reviewer, who wanted a comfortable fit, wrote. "I’m normally a medium or a large. I’d only go with the large if you wanted this to be really loose or baggy. It’s cute and perfect for those casual days."

Whether your wardrobe could use a bit of an upgrade or is lacking in basics, it might be worth adding more than one of these tees to your cart for the summer.
