There’s nothing plain about this white tee

By far, one of the best wardrobe investments I’ve ever made is this simple white t-shirt. I call it an investment because that’s exactly what it is. It’s one of those staple wardrobe pieces that no woman should be without.

In a previous post, I shared that the mark of any good wardrobe staple is it’s function as well as it’s versatility. I think the simple white tee meets both of those standards beautifully.

I’ve heard lots of people describe the white t-shirt as plain, but there’s nothing further from the truth as far as I’m concerned.

When I think of the white tee, words like crisp, simple, and comfortable come to mind. But, plain? Never!

And, did I mention affordable?

Depending on taste, white t-shirts can be had for a variety of price points ranging from the very low to the moderately high. I picked up this 14th and Union v-neck for around $13 at Nordstrom Rack.

Overall quality is something I definitely value, so when necessary, I will spend a little more to make sure that what I’m buying will stand the test of time. This shirt that I bought about a year ago turned out to be a great buy because it was extremely affordable and it has held up surprisingly well.

On a recent “date night” with the hubby, I decided to pair this v-neck tee with my favorite pair of khaki cargo capris. In the end, it turned out to be the perfect outfit for a casual night out.

What’s your “go-to” piece when you’re out on the town? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Quin, I think you are reverse aging. You never dress too young for your chrono age, just always up to date and trendy. It is so refreshing to see a real woman with a real figure who dresses in such a lovely age appropriate way and keeps up with current trends.
    I very much enjoy the fashion tips, sources for all the items, and your take on current trends and styles.
    You are beautiful in every sense of the word.

    • Kaaren, thanks so much for your kind words! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support and I’m glad you’re enjoying what you’re reading. Be sure to stick with me. There’s lots more to come! 🙂
