ICYMI, this is the latest fashion item that has gone viral on Instagram

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.

First introduced by New York-based fashion label The Frankie Shop back in November last year, the US$75 (approximately RM320) T-shirt—dubbed the ‘Eva’—has been spotted all over Instagram, from fashion influencers including Brittany Xavier and Yoyo Cao to celebs such as Rita Ora.

Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for high-street and fast-fashion brands to launch dupes, so if you’re looking for options (or if you've simply given up being on the Eva waitlist), we’ve found nine other labels you can shop yours from.

Easy does it. Padded muscle T-shirts are having a moment—here are 9 brands to shop yours from (фото 2)
