Looking For a Fite

Carolyne Zinko | June 25, 2019 | Style & Beauty Story Shopping

The elbow-length sleeves modeled here were designed by Fite’s CEO for a more polished and updated look than three-quarter-length sleeves.

Holly Peterson couldn’t find the right tops to go with her designer clothes—the $500 T-shirts she bought at luxury boutiques lost their shape after one wash, and less expensive options at chain retailers didn’t have the polish she was after. Figuring she wasn’t the only one in need, Peterson developed her own line of cashmere-modal blend T-shirts, Fite. In three sleeve lengths—short, long and elbow—the tops come with scooped or V-shaped necklines, and in tank-top and camisole variations as well. New this summer is a linen-spandex blend. Made in Los Angeles, these staples run $130 to $150 each and are carried in white, black, navy and olive solids, as well as modal-spandex blend metallics. An added plus? They’re machine-washable too.
