The t-shirt. It’s classic and super versatile, with endless variations and possibilities, a staple in all closets. Yesterday Kirsty and I styled some of our favorite t-shirts 4 different ways. Today we are compiling our hot list of must-have tees.
The basic classic: This one is a great price. It wears well, and has a great slim fit that is perfect for maxi skirts, flare leg jeans, tailored skirts. Kirsty also owns it in white, which is not see-through, but still soft and wearable like your “favorite old t-shirt” should be.
Best In-Class (aka. own multiples): This was in yesterday’s post, but it’s a favorite so we had to share it again. Both of us have this one in multiple colors. Kirsty even has it in multiple sizes, which she wears (depending on her mood) more fitted or flowy. This is the softest tee and is universally flattering; the slight flutter of the sleeves and the slouchy pocket make it unique, yet it’s styling stands the test of time.
Below are a few more favorites…we thought you should know.
Best Long Length: For those taller gals, or long-torso’ed goddesses, this is my ultimate favorite t-shirt. I love the scoop neck, mirrored in the shirt-tail hemline, and with just the right amount of drape. Also, the perfect thickness – not too bulky yet not totally sheer, and it washes well. An all-around fantastic tee (I have several colors). And…did I mention it comes in sizes ranging from xxs to xl (it runs true to size)?!
Splurge-Worthy: This classic t-shirt is definitely worth its price tag. A great all-around fit with awesome slub-texture that adds interest while keeping it from being too sheer. It also holds its shape and washes well…everything you would expect from Rag & Bone.
Clever Message: This tee says it all – Audrey had it right, Paris is always is a good idea. This tee is chic regardless of how you style it. Classicly simple when paired with dark denim and a pump, or whimsical tucked into a pleated skirt and worn with ballet flats. Either way, channel your inner French girl.
Best under $20: Great fit, 100% cotton, and a fun selection of colors; it’s hard to beat Madewell’s tee (especially for the price). I have several of these tees, wash and run them through the dryer – so easy!
Best Stripe: While the blue and white stripe is classic, I’m loving the side knot design, which creates a great, shape effortlessly. A stripe tee is a wardrobe staple, easy worn alone yet so fashionable when paired under a blazer or worn with a patterned or colorful pant.
That’s our t-shirt round-up. What’s your fave? How are you wearing you’re classic t-shirt?
Happy Shopping and thanks for reading! ~Jenn & Kirsty
