But these days, with every label staking claim to the “perfect white tee,” it’s never been more complicated to be so wonderfully basic.
So in the interest of all of humanity, we put on racks on racks of white T-shirts to find the ones that best fit the widest range of body types, look equally stylish beneath layers as they do worn on their own, and, of course, feel soft and comfortable, even after a few washes.
And yes, we know: Style is subjective! Plus, there’s everything from personal taste to body shape to local climate to take into account. But to us, the best white T-shirt is the ultimate style chameleon. In our search for the “perfect” white tee, we kept it simple, focusing on classically cut crewneck designs with minimal branding. And even though we tested some unisex options, we learned that T-shirts cut specifically for women provided a more flattering fit overall. Without further ado, below you’ll find two of the best white T-shirts for women.
