Finding the right basic white shirt is like trying to find the right pair of mom jeans – it’s HARD. Well, it’s hard for me because I am incredibly indecisive. It took me – I shit you not – two years to commit to a pair of boots. So if that sounds like you then join me as I peruse the internet for a slew of white tees.
I’ve also included some pricier options for when you’re drunk in bed on a Friday night and dream-scroll.
1. Cotton On
Where else are we going to start?
Cotton on is such a go-to for basics, it has everything you need for your day-to-day antics. It’s also the only place where the cashier will ask me if I want a cute pack of tissues for an extra $2 and I’ll say yes.
There are honestly so many types of tees at Cotton On. Ones for summer, ones that can be paired with a jacket for winter – the whole lot.
2. Atmos & Here
If you’re not familiar with this brand, Atmos & Here have really great staples if you’re after some work attire for the office, or something smart-casual.
That relaxed fit is all I want in a basic white tee, that and a classic crew neck.
This baby’s made from 100% organic cotton, and I am very, very tempted to *add to bag*.
4. Nude Lucy
Is it just me or does Nude Lucy always come up on your Facebook feed too? Anyway, the ads win. They win, goddamn it.
Tiddahood describes itself as “a network of First Nations women linked by culture and community.” It’s about celebrating Blak women and honouring the Matriarchy.
This tee comes in both black and white, although the black option is currently out of stock.
6. Cools Club
Cools Club is extremely ~ aesthetic ~, tell ya what. The brand also has the cutest range of sweaters that I will admire from afar (until they go on sale, hehe).
7. Assembly Label
When one says white tees, one thinks Assembly Label. I don’t make the rules.
I’m just a big fan of loose-fitting shirts, they’re so damn comfortable. I also love a good logo, if you can’t tell already.
This is a vibe – tucked into high waisted jeans, y’know?
Afends has a great range of hemp clothing available, which is considered to be one of the more environmentally friendly fabrics.
Just FYI, I’ve found that some of Afends’ clothing tend to run a size smaller than what it says on the label.
We all know someone with this shirt, or something similar from Patagonia.
This 100% recycled tee is Fair Trade Certified, by the way. It’s made from 4.8 plastic bottles and 0.26 pounds of fabric scrap.
OKAY, this is a shirt I’ll only ever just *like* on Instagram. You’ll see why in precisely one second.
Re/Done focuses on restoring luxury fashion items, like vintage denim to essentially breathe some new life into it.
This 100% modern cotton shirt was knitted and sewn entirely in the USA. It is pricey, it is very, very pricey.
If you excuse me, I’m going to scroll back to the top now.
