Ah, the basic white T-shirt. Unassuming as it can be, it is also the most highly-versatile piece of clothing that you can have in your closet. Trends may come and go, but you can wear the basic white tee any time of the year and dare we say this: to any event at all. You could even call it the little black dress (LBD) of T-shirts. Whether a casual outing or a fancy night out, your white tee will be able to work both ways. Think of it as a blank canvas that you can easily create multiple looks from.
Another reason why you should have one (or a couple) in your wardrobe? They fit anyone of any size and skin tone, so looking for that perfect white T-shirt is pretty much a piece of cake. However when picking, keep in mind what occasions you’ll be wearing them most often to. For example, if you’re an outdoorsy person, perhaps a polyester fabric T-shirt would be better for you than say, a cotton fabric. Meanwhile, cotton T-shirts are great for daily wear as they are light, breathable, and durable. Next comes the type of silhouette. Whether loose or fitted, anything will work — trust us.
