An Ultimate Collection Of White T-Shirts

There are certain must-have pieces in your closet that you must find the top-notch versions of: your preferred denims, a pair of heels that are actually comfortable, a little black dress that instantly boosts your confidence, and a fantastic white tee. However, the quest for these items—especially the finest white tees that are both flattering and durable over time—is no walk in the park.

While white tees are a closet essential all year round, they truly shine during the warmer months. Pair a white T-shirt with your go-to comfy shorts, a chic pair of linen trousers, or classic denim for an effortless mom-chic ensemble.

These are white T-shirts that have undergone thorough testing, evaluation, and approval by our team of writers and editors. Save yourself the time and effort of sifting through countless reviews of the myriad options available and explore our proven top picks for the best white T-Shirts below.

Everlane Organic Cotton Box-Cut Tee

I sport some form of a white tee every week—be it a tank, a long-sleeve, or a short-sleeve tee. After coming across this Everlane tee in curated wardrobes on The Everymom and The Everygirl, I eventually decided to make the purchase. And now, it has solidified its place as my ultimate closet staple.

The organic cotton fabric boasts a weightiness unlike your average tee, offering a more structured silhouette. This tee is my go-to whenever I aim to exude a polished look—think channeling the timeless elegance of Jennifer Aniston in a white tee and jeans.

This tee has a substantial feel, ensuring opacity and maintaining its appeal wash after wash, even the neckline (unlike my cheaper tees from Target, which tend to curl and lose their shape). While I might consider buying more, this $30 tee has proven its durability so well that I see no immediate need for another. Unless I want to try out the pocket version or explore one of Everlane’s other 15+ shades.

A New Day Slim Fit Ribbed T-Shirt

After seeing this tee adorning all my friends for months—and hearing their glowing testimonials—I eventually decided to treat myself to a couple. I got them in white and gray. I can confidently say that I wear them both in repeat rotation even before they hit the laundry pile.

What I value most about this T-shirt is its elevated neckline. In my quest for the perfect white tees, I’ve encountered many with necklines that were just not high enough for my liking. The heightened neckline lends a more sophisticated, “fashion-forward” vibe. Plus, it pairs beautifully peeking out from under sweaters in the colder seasons.

While I won’t claim it to be the pinnacle of quality, considering its $8 price tag (I believe I scored mine during a two for $12 promo), it has held up remarkably well through numerous washes. The only signs of wear are in the armpit area (as expected with white tees). With some extra TLC in the laundry room, I am confident I can restore its pristine appearance.

CUTS Tomboy Tee

I recently succumbed to the influence of fashion stylist Kenzie Welch’s Instagram posts and invested in the CUTS Tomboy Tee. I had been on the lookout for capsule-wardrobe-worthy white tees that wouldn’t look out of place under a blazer. Impressed by Welch’s corporate-chic expertise and overall aesthetic, I took the plunge and ordered this top, despite the staple white color being sold out. I opted for the off-white “birch” shade. Let me tell you, this tee exceeded my expectations upon its arrival.

The fabric is incredibly soft, offering a blend of opacity and breathability, while hugging the body in the most flattering manner possible. If you’re a fan of effortless, cool, and refined dressing, then this tee is a must-have. I’ve=[]Adding flair to this t-shirt by pairing it with both denim and slacks, and layering it beneath blazers and V-neck jumpers. Given its remarkable durability after numerous washes (still looking brand new), I anticipate getting plenty of wear out of this tee for years to come.

Old Navy Bestee Crop T-Shirt

Calculating the amount of money I’ve spent on plain white tees over the years in my quest for the perfect fit is impossible. I detest overly tight shirts, yet I don’t want to feel like I’m draped in a grocery bag. Being someone with a short torso, I lean towards a slightly cropped style. However, most crops tend to be too short, barely covering the ribs. My quest rivaled Goldilocks’, but I eventually struck gold with a white tee from Old Navy that hits the sweet spot.

The Bestee Crop T-Shirt from Old Navy is the type of white tee you adore so much that you’d stock up on ten just to be safe. It’s what I would describe as a “sophisticated crop” as it falls below the waist, eliminating the need for constant adjustments to keep things covered. With its slim fit, it accentuates all the right curves. Yet, it still provides ample room to prevent constant tummy readjustments. The airy jersey fabric is breathable enough to withstand scorching 110-degree Texas summers, a noteworthy achievement.

I style it with a variety of ensembles, from shorts to skirts, and even layer it under vests or cardigans. When I say I wear this top at least once a week, it’s no exaggeration—it pairs well with everything. In fact, I’ve convinced myself to order two more as backups.

The Drop Courtney T-Shirt

As a person with a short torso, I’m perpetually on the lookout for a cropped tee that’s just long enough to tuck into jeans or shorts. This The Drop offering from Amazon fits the bill perfectly. Priced under $20, this T-shirt is a budget-friendly option that boasts surprisingly good quality. Crafted from 100 percent cotton, it feels incredibly soft and has stood the test of time admirably. I wear (and wash) these white tees regularly, and they still look as good as new. The classic crewneck cut of this tee adds a timeless element, perfect for standalone wear or as a layering piece under sweaters or blazers.

In terms of sizing, I own this tee in two sizes and alternate between them based on my outfit. Both sizes are slightly larger than my usual fit, so bear in mind that, at least for me, this top runs a bit small. One option in my wardrobe is two sizes bigger than my standard size, providing a relaxed fit for pairing with leggings, shorts, and tucked into jeans. For a more tailored look, ideal for layering under sweaters or blazers, I opt for a size up from my regular size. If you’re in search of a simple tee at an affordable price, I highly recommend this one.
