Somehow when I pull my stack of t-shirts out of the cupboard from last year they never have that pristine feel to them I’m looking for. And no matter how many white t-shirts you already own you can always do with a couple more – as summer’s essential staple they need to be wearable, packable, washable and come out looking like new, for as long as possible…..at least that’s the theory.
You can spend as much as you want on a white t-shirt and find many that are embellished and logoed and trimmed and ruffled. To my mind this is your absolutely best basic for summer. Keep it plain and you can wear it under anything, with or without layers, and the main choices are do you want a low neck, scoop neck, v neck or crew, and short or cap sleeves?
There are plenty to choose from, from designer brands and jeans brands. Two I particularly like are White Stuff, who always have a good collection and Uniqlo, who are extremely well priced. The choice is yours.
