Better than Basic: The Elevated White Tee

There’s nothing quite like a white tee.  Aside from the obvious notion that it is truly a wardrobe staple, the white tee is a sartorial unicorn.  It can literally pair with everything in your closet, it’s completely multi-functional (dressed up vs. dressed down) and it can be worn in every single season.  So, yeah, it’s one of those essentials that exists in everyone’s closet for a reason. A very very good reason.  This season the beloved tee received just the right upgrade.  Feminine details and trendy silhouettes have become the hallmark additions to our most worn item.  Think of-the-moment design elements like puff sleeves, ruffled embellishments, padded shoulders, oversized proportions and basically anything tied, twisted, cropped and cut-out.  With all this delightful dressing up of our favorite piece, there’s no doubt about it – this summer’s white tee will make your closet happy.
