A plain white t-shirt is, in my opinion, something everyone should own. It’s a timeless classic and a staple in my own wardrobe. It goes with everything and you can style it however you want. Up or down, night in or out. Nothing is off-limits with a white tee and it’s because of that, that it’s recently become my go-to for figuring out what I’m wearing for the day. It’s been the most consistent thing I’ve thrown on in the mornings recently and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. It’s just so easy!
However, when looking for t-shirts I’ve found it can be quite an annoying process if you don’t know what you’re looking for. That’s why I made a list of some helpful tips about what to look for, that has personally helped me through shopping for the perfect white tee.
This has become a serious pet peeve of mine over the years. The sleeve length on women’s tees has always been obnoxiously short. It’s so incredibly annoying!
Every time I go into a store and find a t-shirt I like, the length of the sleeves is the first thing I look for because I’ve always thought a proper t-shirt has sleeves that go down to around the middle of your upper arm, maybe even a little longer than that. So if the sleeves are shorter than that, I automatically put it back.
Another things that’s important to check for is the fabric the t-shirt is made out of and more importantly, how thin it is. Women’s tee’s always tend to be incredibly thin and almost see-through. Look for a good sturdy fabric. It might be a little pricier but it will last you longer and it saves you a bunch of trouble in the long run.
Most importantly is the fit of the t-shirt. I personally like my t-shirts to be quite loose and oversized so I always tend buy a size up. That’s also why I don’t mind going searching for a good tee in the men’s section. Usually they’ll have less see-through shirts as well so if you are having trouble finding what you need in the women’s section, I wholeheartedly recommend checking the men’s section before you move on!
