Wearing my #1 white t-shirt of the summer so far, from Madewell.

It’s that time- ya know, the early days of summer when we try to eek one last season out of our most beloved white t-shirts from last year, only to realize that they are pilled/sweat-stained/stretched out/generally not as throw-and-go perfect as they used to be…

Fear not- these 5 styles are tried, tested and SO easy to wear- each one filling a niche in all of our wardrobes that together create the perfect white t-shirt capsule collection to make summer dressing SO DAMN EASY.


Madewell Flutter-Sleeve Tee: I love this so much- I mean, I am always a major Madewell t-shirt junkie but this one is just, well, EVERYTHING. The drapey sleeves are on the dramatic side, but anchored by a relaxed fit and just slubby-enough (I made that term up but you know what I mean I think) jersey cotton.

ATM Schoolboy Crew: One of the top rated white t-shirts on Shopbop, the cut, the wash, the sleeves- flawless.

Chaser V-Neck Ruffle Tee- A v-neck version of THIS tee, which I loved SO MUCH- and you guys did too, I still get emails every so often from readers who clicked the link only to hit a dead end- since said style has been discontinued…But to be honest, I think the new V-neck cut is even better.

Everlane Cotton Crew: This is the ultimate white t-shirt featured in this BETTER BASICS segment- chosen based on the fact that it is a fitted style which happens to be cut in such a way it works really well on all sizes and doesn’t become see-through, even if you have big boobs.

AMO Babe Tee: Perfect boxy crop for high-waist denim. The crop tee is the new, trendy style this season, and I have to say, while at first I wasn’t sure, now, I am all in.
