The t-shirt has become our security blanket during social isolation. It’s is a closet staple that can go a long way, but that means you have to replace them often once they become worn out and stained. Use this time at home to comb through your closet and throw away any gross, stretched, and worn-out tees can’t bear to wear in public, even if you’re not going anywhere (although we suggest repurposing them as cleaning clothes!). We narrowed it down to the seventeen styles we love the most. From the best basic crewneck to a style so thick you can actually go braless, invest in our roundup ahead.

Our #1 Favorite
The Cotton Crew
The Everlane crewneck is the Goldilocks fit: not-too-loose but not-too-tight shirt and it looks good with everything. It’s thin yet opaque, breathable, and comes in a range of colors and prints. If you’re looking for a tee that is basic in the best way possible, this is your gold standard.
The Slub Style
Whisper Cotton Rib-Crewneck Tee
Like the name suggests, the fabric of Madewell’s tee is as soft as a whisper. These lightweight shirts are a best-seller for its daily wearability with a slouchy, comfortable fit.
The $6 Icon
ComfortSoft® Crewneck T-Shirt
You can’t talk about t-shirts without throwing it back to Hanes. We’ll always associate the iconic white tee with this affordable brand (specifically one from the men’s or boys’ section), but we’re extra fond of this new update in summery lime.
Viral Muscle Tee
Eva Padded Shoulder Muscle T-Shirt
If this statement shirt looks familiar, it’s probably because every Instagram influencer has been spotted wearing it. With a padded shoulder and boxy shape, it’s a modern update to the classic white tee.
The Tee That Gives Back
Stand Together Chartitable T-Shirt
Like many brands, Sandro is doing its part in COVID-19 support. All proceeds from the sale of this tee will go directly to the American Red Cross. Look good and feel good by doing your part in this 100% organic cotton shirt.
The Tie Dye
Reconstructed Tie Dye Crop T-Shirt
The tie dye trend continues to go strong. It’s an easy at-home activity to repurpose old tees, but this John Elliot style is a great alternative if you’re not into a DIY moment. His shirts are individually, cut, sewn, and hand-dyed, so each one is completely unique.
Best Bodysuit T-Shirt
Essex Tee Bodysuit
Here’s a t-shirt for the person who always keeps it tucked in. Alix’ bodysuits are soft and give you that perfectly seamless fit.
The Workout Tee
This is the shirt you can wear whether you worked out or not. The best part about this Outdoor Voices tee is that it wicks away sweat like your favorite performance gear, but it looks and feels like a normal shirt.
U Crew Neck
If you like a little weight to your basic tee, look no further. This Uniqlo shirt is fully opaque, so you can wear it with colored bras, bralettes or no bra at all. The cut is tailored without being form-fitting, and its wallet-friendly price can’t be beat.
The Vintage Inspired Concert T-shirt
Britney Concert Tee
MadeWorn band tees give you that vintage look without the hunt. Each tee is meticulously constructed, distressed, and hand-sanded to replicate authentic thrift store finds, featuring your favorite bands and artists. For IG Live concerts or dancing at Club Quarantine, slip into one of these.
For an Evening Look
Le Scoop Mid Rise Tee
The scoop neckline is notorious for being difficult. The collar has to fall just right, the fit should be slim, but it can’t be so baggy that it loses its U-shape. Frame’s Le Scoop checks all of the above boxes.
The Ethical Pick
Kotn is a brand that should be on your radar for their ethical practices. Their materials and production lines are all traceable, so you can know how your tee was made from the ground up.
The Office Tee
Slip Perfect T-Shirt
J.Crew makes a bulk-free tee that fits great under a sharp blazer and tucks seamlessly into your favorite jeans. It’s ideal for layering and it is conveniently offered in both stripes and solids.
The Fashion Graphic Tee
Las Vegas Tee
We all need one tee that feels more elevated than the rest. Paco Rabanne’s cool graphic tees add that designer touch without feeling trite.
The Boyfriend Look
The Oversized Tee
Cotton Citizen’s tee is what you always want your boyfriend’s t-shirts to look like, but better. The cotton is so soft, you’ll want to live in it.
For High-Waisted Jeans
The Cropped Crew
Finally, a cropped t-shirt for those with broad shoulders. The Hanes x Karla cropped tee is a wide, boxy fit in a heavy cotton weave that feels sturdy. These details are necessary for a t-shirt that bares your stomach.
Our Favoirte V-Neck
Essential Pima Cotton T-Shirt
This longline v-neck doesn’t dip too far down: It falls just low enough to be universally flattering, and works well with layering necklaces.
