Everyday Dressing Elevated // My Favorite White Tees

The white tee. Perfect for those days when you just don’t care… don’t have time… or just want to look casual and chic. Yet, I argue that in order to do it with style, the hubs or boyfriend’s Hanes v-neck undershirt might not be the way to go (trust me, I tried it in college, and I would prefer to just burn those photos please…oh, and I actually bought those on my own…. they weren’t actually borrowed….)…. So, today, I’ve rounded up my favorite white tees for looking fab in a pinch and pulled together on the daily in one of the most basic wardrobe staples that exists…..

DOLMAN SLEEVES

I love this option as an alternative to the basic v/crew necklines. The arms add a little femininity…. and in this particular tee, it’s oversized enough to slouch ever so slightly off the shoulder (kind of like a two for one….). This option can be dressed up or down, and is versatile enough for pretty much any occasion (even lounging around the house….). It’s easy to move in, hangs nicely, and is figure flattering. In the summer months, wear it with your favorite denim shorts, straw fedora, and blush slides.

TIE FRONT TEE 

Huge fan of the tie front look over here… do it to my oversized tunics all the time…. so it only seemed natural to add this white tee to my collection. It’s pre knotted (saves me a few seconds…. and I’ll take whatever I can get….), which gives off an effortless look…. and also makes it a little more fitted than the other options here. I like it solo with my favorite pair of high waisted jeans…. or layered underneath my utility jacket…. since you can still see the tie, it adds a dimension of texture……

HENLEY TANK 

One of my favs…. love the slouchy nature of the tank, the button front option, and how it layers perfectly under pretty much any pieces. Pair it with a lace bralette for an added touch of femininity…. and layer it under your favorite chunky knit for a casual day…. or dress it up with a motto/suede jacket. Really, the options are limitless with this choice…. oh, and you can also knot the front of this one too…..

Oh the basic v-neck. Every gal needs it in her closet. I recommend picking one that is slightly oversized to give you that slouchy, effortless look (which was only achieved by trying on several different options…..). I was drawn to the rolled sleeves of this one, and it’s made of the softest fabric….. In my opinion, the best tees are a blend of cotton, rayon, and polyester… it seems to be the magic trifecta in creating the perfect v-neck….. Another tee that I own, but in black, is this option (it’s a similar fit to the first tee I featured).

Some of my other favorites also include this ruffle sleeve option and peplum version. I own both, and they are the perfect compliment to any outfit!
