Layering Tip: The White Tee

We are deep into layering season — mornings are downright chilly and by afternoon it’s in the upper 60° range. I’m always looking for clever ways to wear multiple layers and love the look of this tee under a blouse in April Vogue Italia.

  • I am as well. The t shirt neckline is always a question for me when under a button down shirt.

  • I was just having a conversation with my stylist friend about the perfect white tee. Any brands that you love?

  • I’ve been hunting for the perfect white tee since mine were discontinued. A crew neck, fitted not tight that is not made with whisper thin fabric. Any recommendations?

  • This is an interesting look, can’t decide if it’s for me or not. I know you’d posted about layering a turtleneck under a button down, did you end up doing that? I’ve found some great tees at (I hate to say it…) Primark. Excellent selection of colors/styles though I only buy black and white, and a good balance of cotton/stretch. The $5 price isn’t bad either.

  • Uniqlo.

  • I love my Majestic tees- they make tanks , SS, LS, and variety of other styles. Perfect underpinnings and material is soft and lightweight.

  • What a fresh look that is also practical. Thank you!

  • I like ATM and Rag & Bone tees. Also bought the ones you recommended from Uniqlo a while back that are a bit thicker.

  • When I spied a sales associate at Paris Hermes wearing a simple white tee shirt under her dark blue blazer with a twilly scarf tied nonchalantly at her neck, I confirmed it was Petite Bateau and made a bee line for the boutique. Between my daughter and I, we came home with six in our suitcases. I’ve worn them since about 1990, and although the style has not changed, it is now produced in Portugal or Peru. For me, a white t-shirt of any brand looks fresh for exactly one season.

  • I’ve worn Petit Bateau tees for years, amazing in black and grey, too. James Perse does a good V-neck to layer under sweaters and blouses.

  • Sigrid Olsen if you want it thicker and James Perse if you like it whisper thin.
