Nothing is more classic than a classic white crew neck tee, but the hassle is about trying to style it: keeping it simple is too much of a dud, but going too far your tee will be drowned out by colours and patterns. So here are some tricks to dress it up and down.
For a summer look, grab a pair of shorts and tuck your tee into it. The simple yet colourful tiger graphic by KENZO helps achieve a summery vibe to your classic, while the big “A EAGLE” tee by American Eagle is bold enough to make a statement. Don’t forget the accessories that can pull everything together—some light-weight sunglasses, for example.
For a more sophisticated look, we love pairing this classic staple with a blazer. This season, we see more creative designs playing with logo twists, from the up-side-down “The Kooples” to the embroidery- and print-enriched Phillip Plein logo, lending a contemporary touch to the timeless silhouette. For the opposite side of the style spectrum, your white tee just goes perfectly well with fancy sport suit and a pair of statement sneakers.
One might think picking a white tee is as simple as ABC, but when it comes to the reality, there’s always something wrong: huge neck, too short, bad quality. From Brooks Brothers, Dunhill, Jack Wills to Loewe, we see meticulously measurements behind the minimal design, and that’s what made them a true classic. Cheap tees won’t last long, so invest a little more for quality and durability.
