The Essentials | In My White T-Shirt

white t-shirt style tips

There is nothing more essential to your wardrobe than a well-made, white tee. Tucking the soft cotton carelessly into a pair of jeans or an A-line skirt, is the easiest way to look chicer than a mug without putting forth much effort or money. Even the girls at Vogue know, an inexpensive white shirt can be elevated to the level of couture with a few simple rolls of the sleeve.

When it comes to buying t-shirts, no matter the color, I always buy in bulk. Not Costco bulk, but always in multiples. Even if I’m strapped for cash and need to pick up a shirt because I spilled an entire cup of coffee on the one I’m wearing–true story–I can always opt for a pack of men’s Hanes shirts and keep it moving. In fact, my cheap white shirts wear better than the ones I spent more money on. Instead of ending up with those little pin sized holes my T by Alex Wang shirts get, the ones I have from Target, The GAP, and American Apparel, only get softer and more buttery with age.

While the girls at Vogue are gushing over endless appeal of the “ungendered” and “unfussy” white tee and how it serves as the perfect blank slate for Chanel couture suits, I’ll be watching Netflix in mine and then put on a pair of heels with my sweat pants to get brunch. (Yes, I wear sweats and PJ’s with heels in these streets but that’s another story.) And that ladies, is why the white t-shirt is the ultimate wardrobe staple.

FYI, I’m getting better at taking these photos myself, all I need now is my Photoshop back so I can clean them up a bit. It’s a process and I’m glad you all are here for it.

    Love the jeans by AG. I have a pair similar from Paige Denim. There is actually an AG shop close to where I work and you inspired me to check out their selection.

      Awesome! AG is one of the few brands I wear because they are soft and have a ton of stretch which is perfect for curvier girls.

      Exactly! And they are the easiest to replace if they get stained or worn out.

    What’s your favorite brand for a basic white tee?
    I absolutely agree with you when it comes to the trendy tees. The ones I bought from Express got holes after a couple washes. Such a waste of money!

      I usually wear American Apparel or Hanes men’s tees, honestly. They wear well and are affordable so I don’t care if they get holes or stains after a few washes. lol

    You’re so right, you can never go wrong with a white tee! Especially when you find that perfect fit and you never want to stop wearing it. Confession time, some of the best white tee’s I’ve bought are from the boys section:) Sadly they fit me better!

      Who are you telling! I don’t own many white tees that aren’t from the men’s/boy’s section or aren’t unisex.
