V NECK

This neckline flatters every body type by drawing the eye down and elongating your top half.

Try: Pairing it with a slightly slouchy blazer and delicate chain necklace for the subtlest sparkle.

Who What Wear

CREWNECK

Sleek and simple, this classic look is the perfect match for jeans and canvas slip-ons, but you’ll get a lot more mileage out of the fitted variety. 

Try: Taking it up a notch by tucking a fitted, crewneck tee into a high-waisted midi skirt--a look that’s both office appropriate and cocktail-hour ready.

American Giant ($25)

TUNIC STYLE

It’s relaxed yet super-clean looking. But the big advantage of this longer tee is that it covers your bum.

Try: Wearing it over skinny jeans with a tailored jacket and tall heels for a put-together look that never goes out of style.

Gap ($25)

SLUB KNIT

Give your go-to silk blouse some breathing room by getting yourself a sheer, lightly textured cotton tee that’s both casual and elegant.

Try: Wearing it with denim shorts and a light cashmere scarf on a balmy San Francisco afternoon.

SCOOP NECK

This style works when a classic crewneck feels too stuffy. Show off your lovely neckline with a few delicate chains or cover up with a lightweight scarf.

Try: Pairing it with this season’s trendy culottes and a relaxed blazer or moto jacket.

Pact ($16)
