There are many things we can’t live without — food, water, and oxygen, just to name a few. But, when it comes to our sartorial side, there’s only one heavy-hitter we need: the white T-shirt. We'll even admit that if we had to, we’d give up every designer piece in our arsenal before the basic $10 Hanes tee. Sorry, Prada.
The thrifty, deceptively simple throw-on is endlessly diverse, offering unlimited styling possibilities. You can literally wear it anywhere. ANYWHERE. Don't believe us? Well, we're proving it ahead with five different outfits for five separate occasions. And, these looks wouldn't be anywhere near as good without this cheap, trusty tee. Top that.
