Everyone is obsessed with the simplicity, class, and sass a plain white tee can provide. It can be worn to dress down a tulle midi, with denim shorts on a hot day, or with a blazer for a laid-back office look; we can go on and on with probably a hundred more ways to style the closet staple and that is exactly where the problem comes in. It’s addicting to wear this blank canvas, which means there is no way you can have just one. Don’t fret though, because today we show you how you can mix-up your collection. Just because they’re all plain and white doesn’t mean they are identical. See our chart below.
Apart from the v-neck, round neck, crew neck, and scoop neck shirts that we already know and love, do know that there are more. Ever heard of the boyfriend tee? Yup, the cool boyfriend jeans have a corresponding top. Its neckline can vary, it is oversized with sleeves up to your elbows and as long as it looks like it's borrowed from the boys, they’re considered to be boyfriend tees.
The cousin of the turtle neck, the high neck, is also a nice variation that will look great with a midi or cigarette pants–think Audrey Hepburn but in a white version of her iconic all-black ensemble. Finally, there's the pocket, which is pretty much self-explanatory. That small detail no matter how basic it looks (or how there's really nothing you can put in it), can make a huge difference to your clean ensemble.
