In Which The Slouchy White T-Shirt Makes The Outfit, Again

Photographed by Christian Vierig.
You've probably got a whole drawer of them. Freebies from teambuilding events. Pretty ones you bought and promptly forgot you had. Ones that you wore until they were threadbare and will continue to wear until they're rags. White T-shirts occupy a special place in our closet, and if we're hoarding them, it's because they're some of the most sentimental pieces we own. Find one that doesn't come with a compelling story, and it's a shirt you've probably been meaning to get rid of anyway.

And — bonus! — the slouchy white T-shirt is one of the easiest things to throw on to make a perfect outfit. Wear it with your work trousers, and suddenly you're Fashion Week-ready. Wear it under a dress or skirt, and your outfit suddenly feels more special. Click through to see five different ways a white tee can totally make a look.
