I actually prefer a linen tee: they just hang better than their cotton or cotton-blend counterparts, in my opinion, and I like that they’re usually a little bit sheer (sometimes the white ones can be more than a little sheer, so steer away from white if that isn’t your thing). And they’re cooler in the summer months, too. Linen tees often cost a little bit more, but I’ve managed to find some cheapish options, as well as a couple of more splurgy ones. This scoopneck number from Everlane is near the top of my list.
And I really dig the yellow micro-stripes here, and the slightly longer sleeves and drop shoulder too. It’s also the cheapest one I found.
J. Crew’s V-neck pocket tee comes in a multitude of colors, so if you’re a V-neck tee devotee, here’s where to stock up. Also, it is available in sizes up to 3X.
This crewneck is about as satisfyingly straightforward as it gets.
And this magenta tee has a nice, collarbone-revealing neckline, which is good for those of you who, like me, must always reveal their collarbones.
The roll-cuff sleeves here would be quite arm-flattering.
Meanwhile, I like that the flutter sleeve on this tee isn’t overly fluttery.
And finally: a cute and tomboyish option.
