The essential of essentials. The basics of basics – but in a good way, of course. See how the street stylers are doing it, then begin your journey by finding THE one.
Everyone is always going on and on about how a white t-shirt is essential. The most important of the basics. The basics of basics. Well, the good kind of basic. When every other top seems to fail, the white t-shirt prevails. It is quite literally a blank canvas, taking your look down the casual route whilst letting everything else stand out, from tailored blazers to gold necklaces. It is also incredibly easy to work with. Find me something that doesn’t go with a white t-shirt, I dare you!
The trick to wearing a white t-shirt like a street style pro is this: see it as more than something you put on for an errand run. Wear it with intention and not because you had no other options. Then, think about modifying it to go beyond. Knot it, layer it under dresses and bralets when you don’t feel like showing too much skin, layer it over dresses when you want to get more wear out of the latter.
Of course, to begin your death-do-us-part journey with a t-shirt, you need the t-shirt. Our ultimate place to get the most wallet-friendly and surprisingly durable white t-shirt is Uniqlo, but if you prefer a little bit of luxe in yours, Acne Studios, Rag & Bone and Saint Laurent have our votes.
