I love simple white shirts and they have been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember.  While I do enjoy wearing fun florals and pops of color, I typically save those for dresses and keep my tops more timeless and basic.  My day to day outfits typically consist of simple pieces like jeans, solid colored tops, and white shirts.  White shirts are always timeless and they’re easy to wear under sweaters, sweater blazers, and jackets, so they really do add great versatility to a closet.  Today I wanted to share 3 of my favorite long sleeve white tops- two are t-shirts and one is a button down.  More details and a better look can be found in a reel today on Instagram.

The Best White Shirts

1.  J.Crew Factory Long-Sleeve Crewneck Girlfriend Tee

This t-shirt from J.Crew Factory is a great casual option.  It has a more relaxed fit and I wear it with jeans, shorts, and athleisure outfits.  It has a slub texture to it, which adds some visual interest.  It’s not too sheer and is very comfortable with an easy to wear crewneck.  It has a vertical seem running down the back, which adds to the casual look.  Also comes in other colors.  It runs true to size for a relaxed fit.  (I wear my normal size small).

2.  J.Crew Factory Artist Tee

I have loved this style of top from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory for over a decade.  (It used to be called the painter’s tee and had little buttons on the sides of the neck opening.  They seem to be discontinuing this again but I’ll be on the lookout for when it comes back, because I’m sure it will.)  The boatneck cut is timeless and it’s a little more elevated than a basic white t-shirt.  Boatneck means that the neck is straight and high in the front and then it’s a bit wider on the shoulders.  This one is not too wide though, so you don’t have to worry about bra straps showing.  I love a boatneck for tucking into high rise wide leg pants because it helps create a streamlined upper half to balance out the fuller lower half.  I have this shirt (and the older version) in many colors but my most worn are white, black, navy, and striped.  This current version runs a bit fitted so if you do find it in store I’d recommend sizing up one size.  (I sized up to a medium.)

3.  J.Crew Gauze Button Down

This has been one of my most-worn tops since I bought it in 2021.  I love this shirt so much for many reasons.  It’s incredibly soft and is a great option to dress up or down.  I tend to prefer a more casual button down and this one is especially perfect to wear with jeans or shorts.  The gauze fabric is reminiscent of a muslin blanket, but thicker and it is not sheer.  It washes nicely and then you can just throw it in the dryer and you don’t every have to worry about ironing it.  It runs true to size.  (I wear my normal size 4.)
