Best White T-Shirts For Women’s
How do you find the best white T-shirt? This sounds like a simple question, but tracking one down that checks all of the boxes from fit to comfort, is quite a feat. However, the smaller the item of clothing, the more obvious its flaws become. No one likes the feeling of slipping on a boxy, dirty white tea that is as hard as cardboard against our skin. However, in the end, the search is over.
Throughout the history of pop culture, from Marlon Brando to Kendall Jenner, white T-shirts have been embedded in both our lives and our wardrobes. “Everyone needs it. Every culture and subculture has used white T-shirts. “That’s where the genius is,” said Karla Welch to Vogue. For us at Vogue, the white T-shirt has become the centerpiece of a uniform wardrobe, perhaps even more so when we find ourselves comfort at home in these uncertain times.
Although we may be practicing self-isolation and social distancing, something is liberating about wearing a crisp, classic white T-shirt in the morning. This is a fresh, dewy-face, which can give us extra mood lift with just only a touch of jewelry. Needed, whether it’s a pair of gold hoops or at least a chain necklace that helps us feel some sign of Symbolic symbolism. What is more iconic and representative of our daily life than a classic pair of white T-shirts and jeans? Yes, jeans can be comfortable at home, too.

Spending a lot on a white t-shirt is a lot, but I found that owning the perfect one is better than owning a 12 that doesn’t fit perfectly. I wear this t-shirt all year round like a base layer under sweaters in winter, and I pair it with skirts and shorts in the warmer months.

My favorite White Tee Heinz X Carla crew is because I like my tees to have weight, especially if they are white. I have it in both crop and tank versions because I love it so much! A white tee can be unflattering, but this one retains a good structure.

The Petit Bateau Iconic T-Shirts are just that. It is simple, elegant, and looks just as good with a long evening skirt as it does a loose pair of worn-in denim. Bonus points: they make them for kids too.

I like Kule’s cotton tees for its classic unisex shape and soft lightweight feel, with sleeves that are just long enough and never too tight. They tuck in my favorite jeans perfectly (a French tuck preferably, so as not to hide the brand’s trademark stripe at the bottom hem – my favorite part!)

To me, the perfect white t-shirt has high, almost a mock neck collar, loose sleeves that don’t hug my arms, and is crisp with some structure, yet still relaxed.

For some reason, they are called “holy grail” white tee. The best white tees are perfect opacity and uber soft. Also, they are upcycled from vintage white tees, so they are a durable choice.

Cotton Citizen makes great basics, T-shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, work. I like their plane white Sydney tee because it fits in all the right places and feels big without being baggy, either as there are too many fabrics to tuck or have hanging out. Great for layering, lounging, and everyday wear. I have a black one too!

I’m going to work from home for three weeks, so it’s no surprise that T-shirts have been on rotation for me. I love this top from See by Chloe as it’s the perfect twist on the classic white T-shirt but you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for the style.

I like Leset’s classic Margo Tee. It only hits the right length and is comfortable without being too boxy.

I wear Filippa K’S ribbed tank almost every day (luckily I have two!). It’s perfect to layer under a sweater, or wearing it yourself with a pair of jeans or a skirt. My focus is on the short-sleeved version of the Swedish label, which is made from the same super-soft stretch cotton.

The wardrobe weak spot is the shirts that are comfy enough to lay on the couch but are also acceptable to wear during work zoom meetings. Did I ever realize that I needed it? No, but here we are!
Enter A.P.C. Marina’s short-sleeved shirt. It is made of 100% cotton, which makes it perfect for lazy lounging. The included collar makes me feel like I’ve acted with myself. What I don’t do, by the way.

It’s under the best white t-shirt on the market. Trust me, because I’ve tried them all. Not too tight, not too loose. What could be better?
The Cotton Crew Price $18

I like the softness of this classic Vince Tee which is perfect for layering down under a light sweater or wearing it yourself on warm spring days. While we are all at home, I am arriving at this comfortable tee time and time again. It strikes the right balance between comfort and style for my new job from home life.
