The Best White T-Shirts For Your Wardrobe

The holy grail of wardrobe essentials - the basic white tee

Let us introduce the holy grail of wardrobe essentials - the basic white tee. Finding the best white t-shirt for you is all about your personal style.This may be a humble closet staple, but tracking down that perfect white t-shirt that ticks all the boxes is quite a mission. From fit to quality to comfort, the white t-shirt is something we may reach for every day. Owning the perfect basic white tee is better than owning 12 that don't fit quite right. So, before blindly shopping for your staple plain white T-shirt that is perfect for you, you need to know what you're looking for. We recommend looking at what style you constantly reach for. Is it the classic crew neck, or do you prefer a V-neck? Do you prefer a little more coverage in the arms, or do you like a cropped length?

We know that the best white T-shirt needs to be timeless, crisp, soft and lightweight. It needs to be great for layering, lounging and everyday wear while having the versatility to pair back with almost anything in our wardrobe. The best white t-shirt is one that works all year round - as a base layer under sweaters during the winter and to pair on its own with shorts and skirts in the warmer months. Cut from silky soft bamboo, our bamboo white t-shirts fit the bill when it comes to ease, versatility and comfort.

The Best Crew Neck T-Shirt

A crew neck tee is the ultimate closet staple, and may be the best white t-shirt for you. With a high, round neckline; this classic neckline will accentuate your face and shoulders. It is one of our most universally flattering styles, however it is absolutely perfect for those with longer necks and wider shoulders. These crew neck tees will go with absolutely everything in your wardrobe! It is the perfect accessory for layering, and can be styled with anything from overalls to a structured dress. This simple crew neck will also look great under a blazer and with a pair of jeans for a polished look.

We have 2 crew neck styles that will fit all your needs.

Classic Crew Neck Tee

The Classic Crew Neck Tee is part of our Australian made collection and is made of a blend of bamboo viscose and organic cotton. With its boyfriend style fit, it also has an overall relaxed fit with slight structure around the waist. The relaxed fit will drape beautifully on athletic and tall frames while the structured waist flatters pear, hourglass, and rectangle body shapes. It has a standard short sleeve that falls off the shoulder into a straight sleeve. It is short in length with a straight hem that finishes at the hip.

Shorter Tee

The Shorter Tee is a cropped, semi-boxy style which is slightly fitted at the bust and then falls into a relaxed shape. It is made of 93% Bamboo Viscose, 7% Spandex and has a UPF rating of 50+, just like all our bamboo styles. This tee is perfect for those wanting full coverage across the chest and shoulders as it features a slightly higher neckline than your average crew neck tee. This tee works well with anything high-waisted. Pair it with our Lana Skirt or Luxe Wide Leg Pants or wear over the Ruched Tank Dress. If you're pairing it with a flowy dress, try tying a knot in the centre to sculpt the waist and balance out proportions. If you're opting for a fitted dress, leave as is or play around with tieing too! As the name suggests, this is a shorter tee but isn't a midriff. If you are petite or prefer a shorter length tee that doesn't need tucking in, then this is the tee for you! If your torso is on the shorter side, it'll fit like a regular top. We recommend choosing a size up if you prefer a slightly looser fit around the bust, neck and shoulders.

The Best Scoop Neck T-Shirt

Scoop necks are so stylish and work for a large range of body shapes and sizes. Scoop necks are great for all bust types and those with shorter necks or decolletages. It is also best suited to athletic, pear, hourglass and petite shapes. The deeper neckline shows off your collarbone and reveals a bit of cleavage, making the scoop-neck the perfect piece for visually lengthening a shorter torso. If you've got broad shoulders a scoop neckline takes the attention away from that area and brings it to the neckline. Add a point of interest to the neckline with a choker necklace or pendant.

We have 4 scoop neck styles that we love and think you will love too;

The Eadie Top

The Eadie Top has an all-round oversized, relaxed fit and looks great on all shapes and sizes. Due to its oversized nature, the sleeve seamline should hang off the shoulder. The longer bodice length allows you to experiment with different ways of styling. Tie it up in a simple knot one the side of the waist or simply half tuck the tee into your bottoms. With its blend of bamboo and spandex, the tee has that perfect amount of stretch which makes it one of our most favourite casual tees.

Classic Scoop Neck Top

The Classic Scoop Neck Top is also part of our Australian Made collection, meaning it has that perfect blend of bamboo and organic cotton. Its neck has a deep scoop neckline; the deeper, wider neckline draws the eye downward, lengthening your neck and accentuating your collarbone. It is a boyfriend styled fit with slight structure around the waist. The sleeves on this style are relaxed and slightly flare out. This tee is a great option if you don't like sleeves that are tight or restrictive. It has a classic mid length style and its relaxed, slightly scooped front hemline allows room for the hips and tummy to make sure you feel confident and comfortable all day long. The back length features a scooped hemline that is slightly longer than the front and covers the buttocks. Dress it up for the office or dinner by tucking it into wide leg pants or a flowy maxi skirt. For a more casual look, pair it with our Pocket or Peggy Pants.

Essential Scoop Tee

We named this the Essential Tee as it's the basic tee everyone can benefit from. It is a classic style that can be worn layered under tops/sweaters, or on its own during the warmer months. This tee is a figure hugging style that can act as a base layer under tops, sweaters or cardigans. This tee is perfect for petites or hourglass and pear frames. It has a short, semi-fitted cap sleeve. It is short in length and finishes just below the hip which is great for someone with a shorter torso. It is made of a blend of bamboo, organic cotton and spandex. It is thicker cotton than your average tee, perfect opacity and still super soft!

Ruched Tee

The Ruched Tee is a fitted, true to size style with flattering ruching at the sides of the waist. Our Ruched Tee is best suited to hourglass and pear shaped bodies who want to show off their slim waist. It is also great for rectangle figures who are looking to create some shape, and will do wonders for apple shapes as the side ruching will help disguise any lumps or bumps around the tummy and hips. This wardrobe essential also doubles as a maternity tee as the stretchy side ruching will comfortably cover your growing bump. This tee is longer in length with a slightly scooped hem. The ruching at the sides of the waist allows for the length to be adjusted, perfect for a long or short torso or for those who are pregnant or want extra coverage. Pair this top with a pair of jeans or elasticated pants or wear it over bottoms with a fabric waistband, like our Essential Pants or Ruched Skirt. This style is made of 70% Bamboo Viscose, 25% Organic Cotton and 5% Spandex with a UPF rating of 50+.

The Best White V-Neck T-Shirt

The V-neckline shape is incredibly flattering to all bust sizes. The key to wearing a classic, versatile neckline is to choose the depth of the V that best fits your bust size. Smaller busts should choose a less dramatic plunge as the high V neckline will visually make smaller busts appear larger. If you have a rather long neck, you may want to add a cami underneath for a balancing effect. This neckline is also perfect for people with an inverted triangle body shape as it draws the eye to the upward and makes shoulders appear narrower.

Here are some of our favourite V-neckline styles on our classic white t-shirts;

V Neck Tee

The V Neck Tee is a classic and timeless staple made of bamboo and spandex for extra stretch. It has a high v-neckline and a slightly relaxed bust and bodice silhouette. In a true to size fit, this tee skims past the bust to slightly emphasise that area and then falls into a relaxed shape. The straight, column-like fit is perfect for wider hips and tummies as it brings attention to the bodice while also creating the illusion of a longer torso length. This t-shirt is long in length with a relaxed scooped hem that finishes just below the hip; perfect to cover the bottom, disguise a tummy and helps flatter wider hips. The scooped hem is cut shorter on either side, which helps create the illusion of a longer torso. To style, all this tee needs is a simple half tuck as the v-neckline does all the talking. Pair this tee with our Pocket Pants to work the tuck or wear loosely over the Essential Pants.

Classic V Neck

This Classic V Neck Top from our Australian Made Collection has a deep v-neckline with a slight scoop to elegantly draw attention to the décolletage and shoulders. While everybody can look great in a v-neck, a deep v-neckline is best suited to larger busts to elongate and balance their silhouette while helping make a larger bust seem smaller. This tee has a boyfriend styled, relaxed fit with slight structure around the waist. The fabric combination of organic cotton and bamboo viscose will elegantly fall off the body and won't cling to the body whilst the relaxed shape is designed for ease and versatility. Wear this style tucked into a flowy Midi Skirt. The longer length allows you to pair with simple leggings and makes the perfect outfit if you're getting active.

Belle Tee

The Belle Tee is best suited to a petite, hourglass or rectangle figure as it helps accentuate/create a waist due to its slight structure at the bodice. This tee has a relaxed fit with a higher v neckline then the rest of the v-neck tees. This tee is shorter in length with a slightly longer scooped hem at the back. This tee slightly flares out from the waist and finishes at the hip, a great option for a pear shape and a short torso. Show off the hemline of this tee by leaving it untucked!

The High Neckline White T-Shirt

We love a high neckline in a basic white t-shirt as it is a timeless and sophisticated silhouette. A higher neckline is amazing if you prefer more chest coverage and/or sun protection. Luckily our Bamboo clothing is all certified UPF50+ for optimal sun protection!

Here are 2 of our favourite high neckline basic white tees;

Pia Top

The Pia Top is great for a small to medium bust and those with slender shoulders because of its boat neckline. The wider neckline passes just below the collarbone and helps balance out a fuller midsection by drawing the eye out towards the shoulders. The bodice tightens below the bust before slightly flaring out to a subtle swing hemline, giving definition to the waist. This is great for a rectangle or column figure to create the illusion of a waist. This tee is true to size, so choose your normal size! If you have a narrow shoulder span, this top may be perfect for you as the cap sleeve widens the area to help expand the shoulders. Also, if your hips are wider than your shoulders you can wear a cap sleeve to draw the eye up and away from the hip area. This style is also a little longer in length than most, which is great for tall women or those who want more length in a tee. To style, add a 3/4 pant or skirt to balance out the long length. Pair it with our Bamboo Culottes or Nina Side Split Skirt.

Spade Tee

The Spade Tee has a shell shaped neckline and scooped back. It is semi fitted at the bust, falling gently into a relaxed fit through the bodice, with the help of a back pleat. This tee has a boxy fit that isn't too oversized and doesn't overwhelm the body. This little tee works well on most body shapes but is best suited for petite frames or women with short torsos. We recommend choosing a size up if you prefer a looser fit. This muscle tee has capped sleeves, and is a great choice if you want to show off your arms or love a tank but prefer to cover the shoulders. This tee is short in length with a curved hemline that finishes just below the waist. It is the ideal tee for women who are petite or have a shorter length torso. This style works best with high-waisted pants or skirts. For casual dressing, pair it with our super high-waisted Essential Pants or Bamboo Culottes. For a more professional look, wear it with our Luxe Wide Leg Pants or Lana Long Skirt.

Add a little length

If you want a little more sun protection across your arms, or prefer a more modest look, then this white t-shirt is going to be perfect for you!

The Sophie Top

The Sophie Top features a rounded neckline and relaxed silhouette in luxurious bamboo fabric. The sleeves fall at above elbow length, which is great for those women wanting to cover their arms. This tee subtly skims the bust, and gradually falls into a relaxed fit around the waist and gently skims over the hips. This tee is a true fit so choose your normal size. The Sophie is mid length and features a curved bottom hem with slight splits on either side to help you move with ease but also giving that little bit of edge to a simple white tee. Show off the hemline features and wear this tee untucked and over the waistband of your bottoms. This tee looks amazing styled over a tube skirt and denim jacket or longline cardi.
