As my life has evolved to include fewer social outings and more momming over the past year, I find myself reaching for an easy white tee most days. And for good reason.
You’d think it would be a foolproof purchase, but I’ve bought my fair share of tees over the years that just didn’t quite nail it. They always end up getting a wear or two, then getting skipped over for my favorite fit. For me, the perfect white t-shirt is boyish yet body skimming, slouchy not messy, not too tight or too boatneck, and somehow just effortlessly flattering.
From body hugging baby tees to comfy oversized ones, we separated the good from the great and found the white tees you’ll find yourself reaching for on the daily. Scroll on for our eight favorite tees, including a splurge and save (under $50!) in each category!
Best Overall Tee
SPLURGE: RE/DONE The Classic Tee
The tee is beyond comfortable and super soft while still holding its shape.
With a slightly shrunken fit and classic crewneck, it’s hard to beat this fit – especially at this price point!
Best Oversized Tee
SPLURGE: THE GREAT The Boxy Tee
Super lightweight with a slight worn in look, this tee is an easy everyday staple.
The length of this tee makes it perfect for layering over some bike shorts or doing a front tuck with some cutoffs for a slouchy look.
Best Baby Tee
SPLURGE: x karla The Baby Tee
This is the tee to take you from yoga to brunch and perfect for showing little skin.
Fitted, faded, worn-in and so so soft.
Best Organic Tee
SPLURGE: G. Label Ellian Organic Cotton Tee
With super lux fabric and a cut that fits close and skims the body.
With a roomier cut, this tee is cropped to sit right above the hip for a truly timeless shape.
