The 10 Best T-Shirt Brands for Everyday Wear, Going Braless, and More


Tyler Joe

A good t-shirt is a closet staple that can go a long way, but that means you have to replace them often. Comb through your closet and finally throw away the stained, stretched, and worn-out you can’t bear to wear in public, and move on to the next. Finding the right fit and style is a struggle, but we narrowed it down to the top ten brands that make the best tees for every need. From the perfect slouchy fit to a style so thick you can actually go braless, invest in our roundup ahead, buy them in multiples, and never look back.

Our #1 Favorite

The Cotton Crew



The Everlane crewneck is the perfect not-too-loose but not-too-tight shirt that looks good with everything. It’s thin, lightweight, and comes in a range of colors and stripes. If you’re looking for an easy-to-move-in, breathable tee, stock up in this style.

Best for Layering

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 conveniently offered in both stripes and solids.

For High-Waisted Jeans

The Cropped Crew

Hanes x Karla


Finally, a cropped t-shirt for those with broad shoulders. The Hanes x Karla cropped tee is wider and boxier with a heavy cotton weave that feels sturdy. This added comfort is necessary for a t-shirt that bares your stomach. 

The Heavyweight

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 Tie-Dye

Northside Vintage Tie Dye



The tie dye trend continues to go strong, and I am not upset about it. Madewell’s is hand-dyed, meaning each one is completely unique and will stand out among your basics.

Best Athletic T-Shirt

Jersey Tee

Outdoor Voices


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 tee. 

The Boyfriend Look

The Oversized Tee


Cotton Citizen’s Sydney Tee is what you always want your boyfriend’s shirts to look like, but with better tailoring. The cotton is so soft, you’ll want to live in it. 

Our Favoirte V-Neck

Essential Pima Cotton T-Shirt



This longline v-neck doesn’t dip too far down. It falls just low enough in a flattering cut, and works well with layering necklaces.

The Non-Vintage Vintage Tee

The Graphic Tee



Re/Done’s cheeky crews have an old-school vibe without being a ”vintage” rock-tee. It’s thrift store shopping without the hassle. 

For an Evening Look

U Neck Tee

Rag & Bone


The Scoop neck tee is notorious for being difficult. The collar has to fall just right, the fit should be slim, but it can’t be too baggy where it looses its U-shape. The Rag & Bone tee checks all of the above boxes, and looks great with skinny jeans for a night on the town.
