$11 for a pack of 4? You can’t beat that when stocking up on this simple closet staple: the basic T! Borrow from the boys for a slightly oversized top that drapes beautifully and whose solid simplicity makes any look effortlessly CHIC. When I am having trouble deciding what to wear,I like to go back to the basics and start layering coats, blazers, jewelry, and other accessories with my plain T.
The beauty of buying these shirts in bulk from the boys is that they are comfortable, easy to wash, and only get softer (making them drape more nicely) with time and wear! Hanes does offer a fitted women’s T, but I prefer the way that the men’s fit hangs on me, so this is something that you will want to check out for your specific body type. Once you decide which fit fits you best, start experimenting and layering your own simply chic looks! Add a sweet cardigan when going out to the grocery store, a blazer when going into the office, or cinch it at the waist with a bold brooch for a one-of-a-kind look out with the girls!

And for such an affordable price, why not get creative with one or two of your Ts on a lazy Sunday afternoon?
