I receive requests for t-shirt recommendations every so often, and as I’m constantly restocking my white tees each season, I thought I’d do a wardrobe post on this very deserving staple in my closet.
Everybody has their own version of what cut of white t-shirt works best for them, and I’ll share mine. It’s a short sleeve (never cap sleeve) cut, with a deep v-neck or scoop neck. I have wider shoulders, and often times I feel that cut off sleeves, or high crew necklines, only make me look broader. So I gravitate to this style, over and over. My current favorites are Splendid (pricier at $50), and J.Crew.
Here are some of my favorite white t-shirt outfit inspirations – and yup, they’re all in my favorite cut (of course!).
A super old (but still good) photo of Mary Kate Olsen.
Of course, Kate Moss, in all white.
Gwyneth. I’m actually usually lukewarm about Gwyneth’s style (excluding movies), but I loved this look enough to save it years back.
And finally, going back full circle to another oldie but goodie of the lovely Ashley Olsen. This is perfection and enough reason in my head to justify an Alaia belt, any day!
What are your favorite go to brands and styles for white tees (I know I’ve asked this before, but this time I’m asking for styles too!). And if you have any photos that you love for inspiration on how to wear a white tee, please share – I’m always looking for ways to wear this very comfortable staple.
