The perfect white tee is a closet staple for a woman. There is something so chic and refined about a simple white tee paired with your favorite denim – basically my everyday uniform. Simply put, the white tee is iconic. Over the years I’ve taken note of my favorite white tees in regards to quality, fit, and look. I’ve rounded up the best white tees for every occasion to make your search for this closet staple as easy as possible.
The Best White Tees For Every Occasion
The Classic Everday Tee // If there’s a perfect classic white tee, it’s this one. This is my go-to, so much so that I have 8 of them – one for every day of the week. It’s a classic cotton crewneck that’s not tight and not too loose. I’m 5’2,” and it is the perfect length to leave untucked or even tuck in without feeling uncomfortable. This tee is such a great price. I recommend going up one size. PS. you can even have it personalized – I have a few embroidered with the word “lovely”.
The Refined Short Sleeve Tee // As with everything from Everlane, this is an elevated and refined take on a classic piece. The major difference between this tee and the first one I mentioned is that this tee is slightly more fitted and the sleeves are slightly longer. This one looks and feels more refined than the classic everyday day tee.
The V-Neck Tee // I’ve never been a big fan of v-neck tees. The cut just doesn’t flatter me. I bought this tee because I noticed the “v” cut wasn’t as sharp as a traditional v-neck tee. The dropped shoulder makes just enough of a difference that it looks really cute. In true Paige fashion, the material is so soft and drapey. It has a subtle texture that adds just a bit of California cool to its vibe. There’s a washed black color that’s also really nice.
The Fresh Take Tee // This has been my favorite purchase of the year! Every time I wear it, I get so many compliments. It looks so chic with a pair of light-wash denim and so refined with a pair of dark-wash denim. The material is thick, and it feels so well made. This has become a closet staple for me.
The Perfect Crop Tee // I’m very particular when it comes to crop tees. The perfect crop tee is one that isn’t too high and not too low, just enough of a crop for the occasional peek of skin. Tight crop tees are a hard ‘no’ from me. I like anything cropped to have a relaxed vibe. This is my ideal crop tee, it’s simple, casual, and has a feminine feel to it. I sized-up to a small.
The Boxy Tee //Another favorite of mine! I have a couple of these just in case Madewell ever stops selling it. Everyone needs a boxy white tee that is causal enough for coffee with your best friend and nice enough to dress up for a glass of wine. The wide neckline is really flattering for an understated, yet elevated look. I recommend staying true-to-size.
The Ribbed Long Sleeve Tee // I’m embarrassed to tell you how many of these are hanging in my closet. This is the best long sleeve ribbed tee. I love it on its own or as a layering piece. During the fall and spring, I wear these non-stop. They are so well made and have held up well through washes! The one I bought two years ago is still wearable. I wish they made a short sleeve version. I haven’t yet found that perfect short sleeve ribbed tee, but when I do, you’ll be the first to know.
The Boyfriend Tee // Is there anything more comfortable and cozy than wearing your boyfriend’s white tee? There’s just something about the feel, the look, the whole vibe. These are two of my favorite white tees for that front tuck and laid-back look – one, two.
