Perfect White Tee

A plain white tee is essential to your wardrobe…
But with so many options out there, it’s hard to know which one to choose.

I asked my intern, Kaitlyn, to put together the perfect white tee post to help!!
(You can learn more about the 21-year old, stunning and smart, recent UT grad here.)
We love Kaitlyn, and her parents, who came to Telluride for a visit this summer…as you’ll see below.

Erin’s Perfect White Tee Picks

Perfect White Tee

Things to ask yourself when picking out your perfect white tee:
1) Slightly sheer (vintage-y), or thick enough cotton so you don’t see through the shirt.
3) Fitted or Loose?
4) Petite, Tall or Regular Size?

My Tee

This white tee (above) is super lightweight, and a little on the see-through side.
I’m not wearing an undershirt with it only a nude bra… but if you want more coverage, you can always add a nice white camisole or tank.
For more on the best undergarments check out this post.

I love that you can pair a white tee with jeans, throw on a stylish necklace or earrings, and a pair of sandals and be out the door in a few minutes.
It’s even perfect for winter with a leather jacket and some booties!

When you’re deciding what kind of white tee you want, think about how you want it to fit.
If you want something that’s a little more relaxed, choose a tee that’s less fitted.
For example, this white tee is great for an easy front tuck because it’s less fitted and a little longer in the back (covering your bum).

  1. I have had the hardest time finding a white t-shirt that is not see thru. I’m so tired of having my bra show even in nude colors and I’m not interested in wearing an under shirt. Is there a white shirt you recommed, for purchase online, that is not see thru. Just frustrated…thanks, love your site and your helpful information.

  2. Hi Erin,
