In August, I wrote about my top 10 wardrobe staples every woman needs in her closet. And every month I am highlighting one of those staples, and telling you WHY you need it. This month’s staple is a great white t-shirt.
A great white t-shirt can really take you places. You can wear it just about anywhere, with just about anything and it is always a good choice. Don’t believe me? Pair it with a blazer for a polished look appropriate for the office or meetings. Try it with a skirt for a date. Go with shorts for a weekend look. The possibilities are endless.
But finding the perfect white tee can be a challenge. My personal go to brand is Everlane. I’ve been buying their white tees (as well as other things) for several years now, and I highly recommend them. They are good quality, well made, come in several cuts and are a great price. They’ve got long sleeve, short sleeve, v necks, crew necks, box cut, linen, tanks … you name it, they have it. They also come in a wide variety of colors. But today we are focusing on the white tee.
I personally really love their cotton crew, cotton v-neck and their boxcut tees. It is my personal opinion that you should have both a crew neck and a v-neck in your closet. Sometimes a crew neck is more appropriate, and sometimes you just need a v-neck. And at $16 a shirt, you can totally afford to stock up.
Today I am choosing the v-neck, but you could absolutely do a crew neck for these looks as well.
This is a great summer work look if your office isn’t extremely dressy. If it is, you could easily do a pencil skirt and pumps. White tees also look really good under blazers for the office.
For the Weekend
Of course a white tee is perfect for the weekend. Pair it with shorts and tennis shoes are you are ready for a day of errands or fun. This is also a great vacation look!
For a Date
For an easy date night look, pair a your white tee with a cute skirt and wedges.
And I love the crisp pairing of a white tee with a denim jacket! It would work for just about any look.
