This season, the white T‑shirt has become a hit in fashion collections: it has appeared in Prada, Loewe, The Row and other brands. The case when the catwalk reflects life, because basic tops have been popular for the past few years.
How to choose a basic shirt
The base almost always implies the absence of decor, but this does not mean that things turn out the same or faceless. Tops without a pattern are made very different: the length of the thing itself, the width and type of straps, the texture and composition of the fabric, the greater or lesser proximity to the sports or lingerie style are different.
The most convenient thing is to choose a tank top or top with features that best suit your lifestyle.
Short basic top
This thing will decorate an informal summer look: a crop top can be worn in an office with a non-strict dress code, complemented by shorts and a jacket, or at a meeting with friends, choosing a bright skirt and “fisherman’s” sandals as an addition.
In autumn and winter, a short top will perfectly cope with the role of linen under closed clothes: cotton allows the skin to “breathe”, and 8% elastane provides a snug fit and durability.
In addition, the crop top can be worn for yoga, stretching or Pilates: a double layer of fabric provides light support for the chest, and thanks to wide straps, you can wear a sports bra under the top.
Short top with thin straps
This thing is closest to the linen style, and therefore will perfectly cope with the role of a bra in the cold season.
But you can wear this top both as regular clothes and for yoga, especially in hot summer: thoughtful design and the absence of obvious underwear details are on your side here.
The most versatile (and most fashionable this season) piece of clothing is a long tank top with wide straps. A black or white t‑shirt can be worn as a top with office items, and the combination of a white t‑shirt with jeans is a fashion classic. A long basic top will help you out even in cold winters, as an additional layer under your clothes.
What is good about a basic T‑shirt without a pattern? This modest “invisible” thing can be combined with a variety of wardrobe items, including bright ones, fit into different styles and be appropriate in almost any situation. It does not overshadow you, but delicately illuminates the face, that is, it works — as part of your fashionable look — just perfectly.
What else is important to remember when choosing a basic top? When there is little decor, the look of the product takes on special importance, especially if you wash it often. Give preference to natural cotton with the addition of elastane: 8% Lycra will not only make the item beautiful and comfortable, but will also keep its shape after washing.
