What is perhaps the most versatile piece of clothing in existence? A white T-shirt. But what makes a really good one? It all comes down to fit and feel. Here are five of the best white tees to stock up on for everyday wear.


Editors’ Pick: Splendid Women's Scoop Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt

The Facts:

  • Buttery-soft rayon fabric
  • A touch of spandex for added comfort
  • Scoop neck for a feminine fit

A white T-shirt is just a white T-shirt until you find one that you can’t get dressed without. And that’s exactly what this Splendid tee is to one PureWow editor. She raves, “My white T-shirts typically look good for about a month, and then start to look a bit worse for wear—maybe it’s because I don’t separate my laundry as well as my mom used to or maybe it’s the quality of tees I was buying. But then I found this super soft shirt. Something about it is unlike any other tee I own and now I can’t wear anything else.”

Best Value: Hanes Women's Nano T-Shirt

The Facts:

  • Pre-shrunk for a true fit
  • Features a classic ribbed crew neckline
  • 100 percent cotton

When it comes to T-shirts, one brand reigns supreme: Hanes. The classic label has been around since 1901, so it's had plenty of time to perfect its products. This 100 percent cotton, pre-shrunk tee is all the proof you need. Plus, with a price this good, you can afford to buy multiple to have on constant rotation.

Splurge-Worthy: Vince Women's Essential Crew Tee

The Facts:

  • 100 percent pima cotton
  • Waist-length style
  • Slim fitting for a body-skimming look

Sure, you can buy any old white tee and call it a day. But this luxe Vince version puts all others to shame. Made with pima cotton, it fits slim throughout the body and stops at the perfect spot on your waist to be worn tucked or untucked without any weird bunching. It’s the type of tee you bust out for special occasions.

Second, they’re made with a buttery-soft blend of cotton, modal and a hint of spandex for a flattering fit that enhances curves. One shopper puts it perfectly, “The material has some weight to it—doesn't feel cheap, thin or flimsy at all, and is soft to the touch… As soon as I got these and tried them I immediately ordered another set!”
