Loose T-shirts are a must-have in every lazy or chill girl’s wardrobe. They provide a comfortable go-to for casual outfits that let your food baby breathe. Plus, if you know how to choose, they can also look effortlessly stylish and put-together. Despite their seemingly no-fuss appeal, T-shirts can prove a challenge to choose, especially when it comes to women’s bodies. The variety of shapes, curves, heights, proportions, and so on can leave certain tees looking overly boxy or baggy when worn. Much like jeans, finding the right basic shirt can do you a lot of favors, making even your most plainest outfits flatter you in all the right ways. Below, we list 10 reliable tees to shop now. Each piece features a loose, comfortable fit, but won’t make you look like a sack of potatoes.
Look effortlessly put-together with these stylish loose T-shirts:
Slub Jersey Stitch Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt (P595) from MUJI
You can’t go wrong with a classic crew neck T-shirt and MUJI’s take on the timeless cut is a piece you’ll want to stock up on. The piece is made of light but sturdy cotton that will sit loosely against the skin, holding its shape without appearing boxy. Plus, the pocket on the left side of the chest gives the top a more distinctive look, so it stands out amongst your many white tees. You can get it in a variety of neutral tones like black, navy, gray, olive, and more.
Flounce Sleeve Tee (P598) from ForMe
ForMe gives the classic white tee an elegant update with a flowy silhouette and flounced sleeves. While most T-shirts are limited to use for casual outfits, this piece offers more versatility—you can pair it with your old blue jeans or with a dressy skirt or trousers. No one will be able to tell it’s just a basic white shirt. You’ll want to get it in black and gray, too.
AIRism Seamless V-Neck Long T-Shirt (P790) from Uniqlo
Uniqlo’s AIRism line has become a closet staple for many thanks to its moisture-wicking, sweat-absorbing, and heat-releasing fabric—and this lightweight top is no different. It features a soft V-shaped neckline, loose fit, and flexible fabric. The delicate, feminine silhouette can draw attention to your shape without having to hug your body.
Short Sleeve T-Shirt (P695) from Zara
When it comes to wardrobe basics, it’s the little details that can make all the difference. Fittingly, this Zara tee gets our approval thanks to the finishing touches along the arm holes and neckline. The seams along the neck and sleeve gives the shirt more shape and dimension, resulting in a more distinctive look.
V-Neck Lace T-Shirt (P1,250) from Springfield
Dainty details like this Springfield shirt’s lace trimming can quickly make a basic tee more flattering as they can subtly draw attention to your curves and bone structure. The top also has a light, flimsy construction that molds to your every bend and movement, giving the piece a delicate aesthetic.
Roll Sleeve Crewneck T-Shirt (P1,450) from Gap
This Gap T-shirt keeps its silhouette soft and effortless from top to bottom with a rounded neckline, hem, and sleeve shape that would complement most body types. The straight cut gently sits on just the hips, subtly emphasizing your curves despite the relaxed fit.
Viscose V-neck T-shirt (P499) from H&M
A quick way to choose a form-flattering loose tee is by finding a piece that shows off your collarbone—this shirt from H&M would be a great pick thanks to its V-neck. It also features flowy sleeves slightly longer than the average tee, extending close to the elbows and giving the piece a casual sophistication. White is a must-have, but you can also get the top in cream, black, and gray.
Basic Short Sleeve Crop Top (P495) from Stradivarius
A basic cropped T-shirt like this Stradivarius top can be just as much a go-to as its full-length counterpart. Don’t worry, you won’t actually have to show off your midsection—just pair the piece with your fave high-waisted bottoms. The hem falls just below the waist, allowing the smallest part of your torso to be the star of the show.
Boat Neckline Tee (P595) from Regatta
In line with its nautical aesthetic, Regatta offers plain, short-sleeved T-shirts that sport boat necklines. The wide cut runs horizontally from shoulder to shoulder, resulting in an elegant silhouette that emphasizes the shape of the upper part of the torso—perfect for bottom-heavy body types.
Knitted T-Shirt (P1,998) from Esprit
This loose knitted T-shirt from Esprit features a cinched detail on one side of the waist, allowing the straight-cut tee to just slightly sit on the curves while keeping the fit comfy and relaxed overall. Plus, we love the neckline, which is rounded, but wider than a crew neck, so the collarbone can show up top.
