Ever since The Frankie Shop’s Eva T-shirt dropped last year, the Parisian brand has struggled to keep it in stock.

Seriously, each time it’s brought back, the cult piece just sells right out again. (Although celebs such as Rita Ora and Mathilde Goehler, as well as influencers like Camille Charrière, Pernille Teisbaek and Tiffany Hsu, still managed to snap it up tho, obvs).

It’s not hard to see why: this sleeveless top has a relaxed fit and padded shoulders to create a striking silhouette. It’s basically a muscle T-shirt from the ’80s, and we’re V. into that.

This baby is the key to taking your casual jeans-and-a-tee combos to the next level (let’s face it, that’s about all you’re wearing right now). Fashion editors have been styling it exactly like that – the denim usually black, and always high-rise – or tucking theirs into generously pleated pants in neutral hues.

A classic T-shirt can only be reinvented in so many ways, but lo and behold, there’s a new top that warrants your attention, and trust us when we say that it’s the perfect piece for our hot and humid weather. Enter padded muscle T-shirts — a relaxed-fit sleeveless top with-you know it-shoulder pads that has reached cult status, thanks to fashion’s It-list.

Style tip: The best way to pair it, in our opinion, is to tuck it into a high-waisted trousers (fitted or flair, your pick), and accessorise it with a pair of pointy-toe mules and a chunky chained necklace. Easy does it.

Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for high-street and fast-fashion brands to launch dupes, so if you’re looking for options.
