The white T-shirt might just be the hardest style to get 100 percent right. True, there isn’t all that much to the boring basic, but that’s why the tiniest details can suddenly become huge pain points, especially if it's not machine-washable, durable and easy to dress up and down.

That's why we polled PureWow staffers and combed through reviews to find 11 of the best white T-shirts for women to help you score your best basic ever.

The Best White T-Shirts at a Glance

1. Madewell Northside Tee

Best Overall

Modeled after super-comfy vintage tees (but without the actual wear, tear and, um, sweat that they usually come with), this is one of Madewell’s best-selling products…ever. Quite a few reviewers admit that they own this tee in a variety of colors and rave about the fact that it hits right at the hip rather than draping too low or requiring a high-waisted bottom. Our senior food editor, Katherine Gillen, tells us she loves that the fabric never gets clingy.

Size range: XXS to 3X

2. FP Movement Inspire Tee

Best Fit

Several PureWow editors have been eyeing this fan-favorite white tee for many reasons. For one, it manages to strike the perfect balance between being slightly oversize and boxy without swallowing your frame whole. It's also made of cotton (aka it's machine-washable), and since the sleeves are longer than most options, you can roll them up (shown above) or down. "Literally RUN to get this," one happy customer advises.

Size range: XS to XL

3. Uniqlo U Crew T-Shirt

Most Durable

This tee is thicker and sturdier than others on this list, meaning it will likely last longer, too. Think of this staple as having the same classic, neat look as your typical three-pack undershirt but with a much softer feel. Many reviewers are also fans of the budget-friendly price tag, with one telling us, “Uniqlo has frequent sales, so I can buy multiples without breaking my budget."

Size range: XXS to XXL

4. lululemon All Yours T-Shirt

Most Relaxed

The slouchy fit of this lululemon tee is great for any (casual) occasion, plus it layers easily, making it a great option to wear year-round. Talk about the ultimate white T-shirt. Fashion editor Abby Hepworth notes, “As the sweatiest person I know, I’m particularly impressed that eight months into wearing this shirt, there are still no pit or collar stains to be seen.”

Size range: 0 to 20

5. Everlane The Cotton Tee

Best Cotton White T-Shirt

With more than 800 reviews and a 4.61-star (out of 5) rating, this Everlane staple has earned quite the cult following. Shoppers rave about the slightly cropped length and flattering boxy cut. Several people also mentioned that they purchased this shirt multiple times in many colors. Plus, the combed cotton fabric is designed to get softer with each wash. “Honestly, this shirt’s practically a revelation," writes one reviewer. "And, speaking of honesty, I own three of these in white, so I’m never without one while the others are in the hamper."

Size range: XXS to XXXL

6. & Other Stories Fitted T-Shirt

Best for the Office

Most T-shirts tend to blend into the background, but that’s not the case for associate manager of influencer marketing Samantha Glowacki’s top pick. “Every time I wear this top, someone asks me where I bought it,” she explains. Designed and made in Paris, this no-fuss basic is about as classic as it gets. The stark white of this style maintains its fresh appearance, even after a few washes. And the fabric? It's crisper than cozy, so you can totally get away with wearing it to work any day of the week.

Size range: XS to XL

7. Leset The Margo

Most Splurge-Worthy

Made in L.A. from 100 percent cotton, this is a celeb-approved version of a wonderfully classic little white tee (Selena Gomez, Kylie Jenner and Kacey Musgraves have all been spotted wearing pieces from the brand). Yes it's pricey, but if you're in the market to splurge, it's worth it. The brand’s mantra is “Why sacrifice comfort for style when you can have both?” And this is true for even the most basic staples in its collection.

Size range: XS to XL

8. Aerie Basic T-Shirt

Best Bargain

This Aerie style is not entirely opaque, giving it a lived-in look, but the super-soft cotton fabric is the major draw. And we seriously cannot stress enough how incredibly soft this T-shirt feels. As one devoted wearer tells us, "It’s like being hugged by a kitten all day long.” Better yet, it has a delicate seam down the back, which helps to elongate your torso and slim your silhouette.

Size range: XXS to XXL

9. Amazon Essentials T-Shirt Pack

Best White T-Shirt on Amazon

These easy-fit tees have more than 39,000 reviews and a 4.4-star (out of 5) rating, which is pretty impressive for a two-pack that costs only $21. According to buyers, the cotton, modal and spandex blend is buttery soft, and that extra touch of stretch flatters and fits curves of all shapes and sizes.

Size range: XS to XXL

10. J.Crew Slim Perfect T-Shirt

Best Sleeve Length

The opaque cotton fabric guarantees your bra won’t be visible, and the slight stretch means you'll end up with a snatched waist. But we really love this tee because the sleeves are longer than usual without veering into elbow-length territory. Many reviewers mentioned this as the top reason they keep coming back to pick up additional colors. Oh, and speaking of colors, it comes in 16 shades.

Size range: XXS to 3X

11. Vince Essential Tee

Most Flattering

Yes, $80 is a lot to spend on something as basic as a white T-shirt, but Vince’s crewneck is made from incredibly soft Pima cotton (basically high-end cotton that's softer and more durable) that hugs your curves in all the right ways.

Size range: XXS to XL
