On Trend: Five Perfect Tees

We’ve picked out five perfect tees that work with anything from jeans to dressy skirts.

The T-shirt is one of our most beloved closet staples. You can wear it year-round, and it works as well with jeans as it does with a dressy skirt, so investing in a really good tee is something we all should make a point of doing. Why have ten T-shirts that you kind of like when you can have one you absolutely love? Paring it down by making smart choices is one of the pillars of sustainable style. To help you along, we’ve picked out five consciously created tees we adore.

The Perfect V-Neck Tee by PACT
Aptly named, this T-shirt by organic underwear brand PACT is made from a proprietary blend of premium organic cotton and super-soft modal. It features raw-edge hem detailing and is perfect for everyday wear.
$30, PACT

Essential Lyocell V-Neck by Covet
Basic, but definitely not boring, this tee by Covet has a v-neck and buttoned pocket on one side of the chest. It’s made from lyocell, a sustainable fabric made from wood pulp. Like all Covet’s pieces, it’s made in a socially and environmentally conscious factory.

Easy Scoop by Topo Ranch
Made from a luxe blend of 50% organic supima cotton and 50% organic modal, this tee by Venice, California-based Topo Ranch comes in a light shade of blue that is a great alternative to white. A pocket and sleeve detail give this tee a more polished look, perfect for pairing with tailored pants or a patterned pencil skirt.
$44, Topo Ranch

Urban Tee by Groceries
If you like a slouchier fit, this tee by LA-based Groceries is a perfect option. Made from a blend of 60% hemp and 40% Organic cotton it’s also easy on the environment. Pair it with more fitted bottoms to avoid looking shapeless.
$26, Future:Standard

Lyle Tee by Koch
If you’re more of a minimalist and like your pants and skirts to be dark in color and simple in style, try a tee with a few simple details that add visual interest and personality. This graphite stripe tee in a light gray color, from Dallas-based label Koch is a great alternative, featuring rounded side-slits and a flattering scoop neck.
