What To Look For
Here is how we decide that the crewneck t-shirt is a good quality one you should wear.
This is the most important factor when you are picking a good white T shirt, its how thick the material of the t shirt is. If its thick, it won’t be as see through. Usually, cotton and lycole material will make the t shirt thicker. Check to see the material of the t shirt when buying online.
Fit is really important if you are looking for a comfortable white t shirt. A relaxed fit t shirt will always be the best choice. Some other ways to know if the T shirt is relaxed fit, if the fit states boxy or it says that the t-shirt is a boyfriend style, then its a comfortable fit. For someone with fuller chest, this is really important for me.
Yes we are looking for a crewneck white t shirt and that’s obvious. But even a crewneck t shirt can look casual. If the stitching and neckline is loose, it will feel casual. And if the neckline is fitted or the stitching is structured.
And if you are looking for an elevated crewneck style, then look for a thick neck band design which looks sophisticated and stylish.
The right length will help you feel comfortable and confident in the white T shirt. if its too short, then you can’t tuck it in. And if its too long, then there is a lot of extra fabric when you tuck in.
Best White Crewneck T Shirts For Women
Everlane Box-Cut Tee
I own the Everlane Box-Cut Tee T shirt in blue and a pocket version in white. Both of them have impeccable quality. If you are looking for a structured T shirt that will fit you well, then this is it. The arm seams sit at the right place. And the arms are not fitted, so they stay comfortable.
If you are like me who has rounder arms, you know what I am talking about. The crewneck style is true crewneck which makes it structured and elevated.
And this T shirt is made out of organic cotton and it’s thick, so no visible bra issues. I also love that the t shirt is not too long. It fall right below the hip. So there are no extra fabric squished in when you are trying to tuck this.
Usually the pocket T shirt ones feel casual, but for some reason the Everlane Box – Cut Tee looks relaxed and yet elevated with the pockets.
& Other Stories Relaxed T Shirt
The & Other Stories Relaxed T Shirt is the t-shirt of my dreams, if that is a thing. I do have fuller chest, so I have to make sure that T shirts don’t feel too tight around my chest area. And this T shirt is exactly what it says.
I wear a size small and it’s still relaxed and comfortable to wear. The sleeves are not that tight fitted, so my arms don’t look bigger than they are.
The crowned is close to my neckline which looks more sophisticated even if you pair it with just jeans. But the most important thing, the T shirt material is thick, so you don’t have to wear a camisole underneath this. All you need is a good nude bra.
The neckline also makes it easy to wear chain necklace to add a luxe touch to my neckline.
Athleta Outbound Tee
The Athleta Outbound Tee is perfect for everyday wear. It’s relaxed and really soft and it meant to be worn for a more casual look. But the neckline of the shirt makes it great to be worn with structured outerwear to create smart casual looks.
I also love the longer sleeves of the t-shirt, which makes it comfortable to wear. Usually casual T shirts have dropped shoulders but it’s not the case for this T shirt. The structured shoulder style makes it great to be worn with going out pieces and look elevated.
The T shirt is made out of Cotton, spandex and Polyester. This helps make this T shirt be not se through.
Hanes Classic fit T shirt
The Hanes Classic fit T shirt is the best cotton white crewneck t shirt on a budget. I have been re purchasing this T shirt because I just can’t get enough of it. The cotton is a little rigid for this t shirt, which actually makes it a great everyday pair.
This means you don’t shrink this after a wash and it does not get flimsy as well.
I went with a size medium since these t-shirts are more classic straight fit and I wanted a relaxed fit.
But because the shoulder seams are perfect, I had no issues with the fit. The length is just right, so you can leave it out or tuck it in.
M.M.Lafluer Leslie T-Shirt
M.M.Lafluer offers elevated casual pieces for the modern woman and is on the higher end side compared to Everlane. The M.M.Lafluer Leslie T shirt looks perfect though. The almost mock neck style of the crewneck makes it sophisticated and easy to pair with formal clothes and still pull off a great look.
I also love the relaxed sleeves that can easily be rolled in summer for a casual look.
This T shirt is made for fuller chested women which is just amazing. So, they run big. If you are on the petite side, then you should size down.
This T shirt does not come in the bright white color, but the ivory one could be a great alternative as well. This t shirt is perfect for those smart casual work wear where you want to be comfortable, but you also want to look polished.
Just pair it with trousers or straight leg jeans to create a structured yet power work outfit.
Madewell Drapey Crewneck Tee
The Madewell Drapey Crewneck Tee is an essential everyday white T shirt. It’s soft and really comfortable to wear. The sleeves are short but they are not fitted. So, you still feel comfortable in them.
And this t shirt also comes in plus size. The T shirt is made out of cotton and lycole which helps keep the T shirt looking new with the slight shine.
This is one of the best sellers from Madewell and for a good reason. The design is really flattering for all body types.

The Rag & Bone The Tee is on the luxe side, but it delivers what it promises. The relaxed fit t shirt is perfect for everyday wear. It’s soft and comfortable.
The crewneck style makes it look structured but the short relaxed sleeves add an effortless touch. You can easily pair them with blazers and jeans and create a smart casual look. Add a chain necklace to give this whole outfit a rich luxurious touch.
There is a reason this T shirt is expensive, this t shirt just fits right and is super soft as well. Usually when T shirts are super soft, I tend to just air dry them. It lasts longer.
Mother Lil Goodie Goodie Tee
The Mother Lil Goodie Goodie Tee looks casual and a great elevated everyday crewneck white t shirt. If you don’t like super closed crewneck because your neck feels suffocated, then this white crewneck t shirt is perfect for you.
The t shirt has a foxy fit but the short sleeves balance that. This makes the tshirt look feminine and relaxed.
This does not mean you cannot wear it with structured pieces and create a smart casual look. The length is perfect to tuck in as well.

Vince as a brand embibes the Californian luxe style and the Essential Crewneck Tee feels the part.
