5 Ways to Wear a White T-Shirt

The white T-shirt is one of the most enduring wardrobe staples. In fact, it’s so iconic that New York City’s Museum of Modern Art recently included the tee in a fashion exhibition. This humble garment’s history traces back to the early 1900s, when it was worn as an undershirt by sailors in the U.S. Navy, later gaining fame thanks to stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean. But it’s come a long way, baby, as you’ll witness at The Shops at Columbus Circle, where the white T-shirt has been reimagined yet again. Check out these five ways to rock one this summer.

LK-Bennett

 

Ladies Who Lunch

The beauty of the white T-shirt: It’s seasonless and can be worn with just about anything. At L.K.Bennett, the Chloee white linen top ($85) has sweet bows on the sleeves. Soft and figure-hugging, it goes flawlessly with a skirt, making for a very ladylike look.

 

J.Crew

 

Business Casual

J.Crew knows that the key to office cool is to layer the brand’s signature Slim Perfect T-shirt ($29.50) under a blazer and transform it into a workplace head turner. Here, it’s shown with the Dover Blazer in Glen Plaid ($178).

Hugo Boss

 

All Dressed Up

Sleek and chic is the name of the game at Hugo Boss, where fluttering ruffles add a touch of sass and class to the Ipapilia Top ($275), which transitions easily from day to night. A pair of slim black pants and white heels complete the look.

Diesel

 

Hipster Chic

Step into Diesel, and you’ll find many ways to wear a white tee — ripped and shredded, covered with logos. We’re still dreaming about the T-Sily-Z ($58), which has a relaxed silhouette and a colorful geometric print.

Michael Kors

 

Weekend Ready

Michael Kors is the king of classic-yet-sexy style, so it’s no surprise that in his hands, the white T-shirt gets stripped down in the form of a strappy, curvy tank ($68). Worn with a pair of cropped jeans, it’s perfect for a stroll along the High Line or a beach bonfire in the Hamptons.
