We all know a t-shirt is the ultimate wardrobe workhorse. Wear it with destroyed denim, or go professional under a blazer. Fact: cute t-shirts instantly makes it easier to get dressed each day.
As you’re looking to your fall wardrobe and filling in any style gaps, take time to also pull out anything that’s looking like it’s seen better days. For me, that’s typically tees. Sometimes you just need to refresh and update so check out these super cute, budget-friendly and comfortable tees you’ll instantly start wearing and loving.
The Madewell v-neck
My ultimate! I have this in three colors (including white… not sheer). They’re under $20, wear well, and are flattering. I love, love this blush color for fall; would look so good with black or grey denim, and of course, white denim, too. Wearing size small, and you can find more sizes and styles here.
Express cut-out tee
Seriously, Express’ tee game is SO good. I cannot get over how many styles they have with cool details often reserved for “designer” tees (which by the way, what is that?!). You can usually score them under $20 (just hold out for a 30-40% off sale). Wearing size small. Not quite as budget-friendly but this Free People front keyhole cutout tee is amazing.
J. Crew camo & gold splatter paint tee
Camo AND gold…. it’s like they made it for me (and you, obvs). It’s a bit of a thicker/stiffer cotton compared to the first two, which I really like… has a structure to it. J. Crew also has a fantastic t-shirt selection, and I’m appreciating they lowered the prices a bit too. Wearing a small here. Only a few sizes left so check out this Gap camo for a similar look.
The striped tee
Everyone needs a good striped tee (or five, lol). This is from Target’s new collection, A New Day, and it also has a bit of a thicker material that still feels cozy. The pocket & cuff details in a contrasting stripe add a cool detail, and a rounded hem provides a flattering silhouette. You’d never know this was this budget-friendly. Wearing an X-Small. (Currently on sale for under $12, and also love this for $8).
The BP knotted tee
You guys loved the cold-shoulder version of this tee so much last spring… so did I! I think it’s one of the top three most purchased items from The Modern Savvy, and with good reason. This non-color shoulder version is equally as good, and if you don’t have anything olive green, this is certainly a worthy first purchase. Comes in loads of colors and basically does the “half-tuck” look for you. Wearing a small. Long-sleeve version here.
The ultimate white tee (though available in 9 colors)
As you can tell by my iPhone snap, this was a recent purchase. 😉 I had been eyeing it forever so I finally pulled the trigger… I’m white tee/top and accessories obsessed. This grommet neck tee is so super cool, slightly sexy and yet not at all revealing. Can also dress it up with skinny jeans, heels & statement earrings, and comes in nine color options. For sizing, I’m wearing a small here but think an XS would be better. I plan on ordering to compare.
