Chico’s T-Shirts Review – Stylish & So Many Options!
I’m a t-shirt gal. It’s my go-to for my daily wear. I recently decided to pop into Chico’s after a blogger I follow raved about the Chico’s t-shirts.
Now, there’s a lot about Chico’s that I like. But I’ll be honest – I don’t shop Chico’s often and I don’t think of myself as a Chico’s customer. Even though I’m the right age.
But I was intrigued after this perky, stylish, fit woman talked up the Chico’s tees.
As you view the styles below, keep in mind that Chico’s has tons of t-shirt styles in both solids and prints. There are many on sale, including some of the styles shown in this post.
You’re invited into the fitting room as I explored Chico’s t-shirts.
Chico’s Elbow Sleeve T-Shirt
Elbow sleeve tees have become my favorite style. I’m pretty sure most women 50+ prefer a longer t-shirt sleeve. The key is to look for a sleeve with a close fit for a youthful look. These Chico’s elbow sleeve t-shirts are a happy in-between – not too tight but close enough for a modern silhouette.
If you’ve shopped Chico’s, you’re familiar with their unique sizing system, ranging from size 000-4. I’m wearing a size 0, which, according to the Chico’s size chart is equivalent to a size 4. I’m typically about a size 6 or small in most tops, and the looser fit in these t-shirts at a size 0 is likely because Chico’s sizing leans a little generous. Keep that in mind if you’re shopping online without trying on the styles.
Note: Chico’s sizing includes regular, petites, tall, and plus. There’s a right size for everyone!
I’m a sucker for stripes, and I love the subtle print of the striped tee below. The wider stripes on top with narrower stripes at the torso creates a flattering and slimming effect.
Many of the Chico’s styles are available in fun prints as well as solids. Although I don’t typically gravitate toward prints, I found a few in the store that I really liked. Like this colorful, large tropical print.
Tunic styles are popular among women over 50. I love that Chico’s shows a few different ways to style tunic t-shirts on their site. I’m modeling the tunics untucked so the length and split hem is visible. But if you’re not a fan of tunic styles, these easily tuck into your jeans and you can even do a French or front tuck and leave the back untucked.
Lots of fun prints in the tunic category too! I love the citrus print top below.
Fun Sleeve Detail Tee
This flutter sleeve t-shirt if a little different from the elbow sleeve styles above, but it’s really feminine and fun and the sleeve length still gives some arm coverage.
Chico’s Tank Tops
I was pleasantly surprised by the Chico’s tanks. They’re really nice quality and I love that the sleeve openings cover the bra straps. This style seems to run a little smaller than the t-shirts. The pink is size 0 – you can see the bra line since the tank is a little snug. The black tank is size 1 and a better fit. These tanks are a classic timeless style and what I consider a summer staple to any summer wardrobe.

I was very surprised to discover that I’m a fan of Chico’s t-shirts and tanks! The quality is excellent, and, contrary to my former assumption, the styles are really versatile (in other words, they don’t have an old lady vibe – ;). If you like a closer fit, like I do, just size down. If you prefer a looser fit, don’t size down.
A huge plus is that most of the tees featured in this post are $29-$39!
