It is probably the most simple item of clothing you own and yet it’s also one of the most versatile—it’s the white tee. You can pair it with everything from a ball skirt to your favorite denim cutoffs and a mind-boggling number of things in between (if only your boyfriend was this amenable). In honor of the fashion girl’s most valuable sidekick, we’ve rounded up the best styles on the market—in case you have space for just. one. more.
Favorite white tee lost its luster? Simply add a gentle whitening bleach to your all-white laundry load.
