A good crew neck t-shirt is one of those basics that you can constantly wear. In summer, it’s one of the easiest pieces to style but, making sure you look a little more put together requires a bit of thought.
First, make sure your t-shirt is a good quality. These tops get so much use that you really need to make sure they will stand the test of time. Lycra is your friend! A little bit of lycra in the fabric will help the t-shirt hold its shape and stay looking fresh.
Sleeve length is another important factor that you need to consider. Make sure it’s flattering on your arm. From sleeveless to a cap sleeve and even elbow length sleeve, make sure you find a length that works on your body type. If you hate the length, try a new one and make sure you like it before you buy it!
Finally, how is the length? A good t-shirt will be long enough for you to tuck in and short enough for you to leave untucked. Having this flexibility will also ensure that your t-shirt will be one you reach for day after day. Fabric comes into play here too because if the shirt is too thick, it can create extra lumps and bumps when you tuck it in a skirt or pants. I’ve paired it here with a skirt! See how easy it is to create a more elevated look.
I’ve styled this tee shirt with a pair of flat front cuffed pants. My platform sandals are comfortable and really give the entire look a very summer vibe. Do you need to replace a t-shirt? Here are some options for you!
