Best Plain Tshirt | Back to the Basics

An outfit can make it or break it with basics. Sharing my all time FAVORITE tshirts today: why I love them and their price points. The first of a little series to come featuring basics for your wardrobe.


There is something to be said for a GOOD affordable plain tshirt. I mean, it doesn’t get much better than a tee and jeans for a casual look. Now, finding that good plain tshirt is a whole different story. I have been on a search for years to find the right one. Now, I have quite a few that are amazing for different reasons. The best part is that they are all affordable!

ONE: This lush tee is one I scored from the Nordstrom Sale, don’t worry though, you can still buy it! I have it in three colors and need it in black! The v is at the perfect height where it doesn’t show cleavage, something that isn’t important for all but for me, I try and keep that at an absolute minimum. It’s a thick enough material that you wear a nude bra with it and you’re good! Long enough to front tuck or side tuck too.

TWO: I have worn this one from Old Navy for about 3 years now. The first one I bought was an XL from the sale section for about $3 because it looked like a great lounge shirt. I now buy them in a Medium and it’s the perfect relaxed fit tee ever! They are a marbled texture so it’s not your typical look. They layer great! The material is on the thicker side so it’s a great option for all year long.

THREE: This Caslon tee from Nordstrom is another 2-year long favorite. The scoop neck is great for something a little different. The texture is SUPER soft. You have to be careful not to machine dry this one in the dryer because it will shrink and it’s super sad when it does. I wear a Small in these and it’s the perfect size for a long relaxed look. The white is a little see through so I will typically wear THIS cami under it. I have it in 4 colors!

FOUR: A BP go-to. THIS  one is great, I have it in black and it’s so soft! It’s a little lower of scoop neck then the Caslon one so I will wear this one when I am not with my niece and nephew as to stay a little more modest. It does just depend on your chest height and comfortability! This one comes in a million colors and is an unbeatable price!

FIVE: Frilly Statement tee. This one is only $11 from Shein and is so worth it! I have worn it so much. It’s a thicker material so you don’t have to wear a cami under it! I have worn it tucked and untucked. I wore it in THIS outfit.
