Our love affair with mid-pink tops began when we spied the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a scalloped-neck version from Boden, and we've been hooked ever since. 

Which is just one of the reasons we fell in love with the GOTS Organic Cotton Long Sleeve Crew Neck T-Shirt from John Lewis (and even more so when we noticed it was only £12). 

It's the ideal buy for a season when the temperature is unpredictable, but we're all spending more time outside than ever before and don't want to be defeated by an outfit that can't match up to the chill. 

Why we rate it:

Versatile and comfortable, this crew-neck top fits easily into your wardrobe and can be layered over the top of a T-shirt, with a jacket over the top, or worn alone on warmer days. 

The affordable top is the perfect spring cover-up. (John Lewis)

The top holds it's shape in the wash, and the organic cotton holds its softness, so you can rely on it year-in and year-out.

Plus, it comes five different colours so, for £12 a pop, we recommend stocking up. 

What the reviews say: 

  • "Great basic item - good quality and a good fit on me. lovely colour. I've got the bright green one too."

  • "Lovely comfortable long sleeve T-shirt, goes lovely with casual jeans or tracksuit bottoms. Pretty cheerful colour, wardrobe essential. True to size."

  • "Bought in the pink and green colours, and they look and feel fantastic. Beautiful quality. Be sure to wash at low temperature so they keep their shape and colour."

  • "Very nice little top, basically a long sleeve T-shirt. Its soft fabric wears well. Initially bought the green and navy but just ordered it in four more colours - only one didn't get is black. Will be great with so many things. I'd recommend this top."

  • "I got this in navy and it's such a comfortable flattering piece. I have worn many times and haven't experienced any problems with washing."
