There are a handful of buy-now-wear-forever pieces: A leather jacket, a closet staple that certainly withstands time and trends and frankly, only seems to get better with age, ranks in at the top. A pair of jeans in a classic wash and cut is next because nothing makes an outfit look more effortlessly-cool than perfectly worn-in denim. A sleek, refined blazer is another forever find. And we, of course, can’t forget to include the always-classic LBD, a piece you can lean on every time, without fail—sort of like your BFF. Last, but certainly not least, is an effortless tee—whether in crisp white, stark black, or any and every color in between—because that, dear readers, is one basic that can serve as the base for any outfit.
Because we know the power of the perfect tee (and the fact that they aren’t exactly the easiest basic to find, though there are bountiful available online), we’ve decided to search far and wide to find the top styles you’ll wear forever. Specifically, we’ve rounded up the best V-neck T-shirts we think are worthy of your attention. Factors we considered in our quest? Quality, fit, design, and price.
From a classic white tee that has been “specially dyed and softened for a worn-in look,” per the product description to another with that perfectly oversize, relaxed fit, below, meet the V-neck T-shirts that are bound to become your new favorite basics.
