Building a Sustainable Wardrobe: The T-Shirt

We can’t discuss wardrobe staples without mentioning the T-shirt. I’m not talking about a vintage band tee or merch from your favorite coffee shop but rather a classic, neutral-colored, cotton T-shirt. 

Whether layered under a sweater in fall or tucked into your favorite denim cut-offs in summer, a well-constructed T-shirt is evergreen. And, when wanting to overhaul your relationship with fashion, stop getting sucked into the downward spiral of trends but rather piece together a timeless and elegant look, knowing what wardrobe essentials will help you get there is key. 

Might I remind you that this article is part of the series “Building a Sustainable Wardrobe”. Where I highlight key styles that can be included in a transeasonal, neutral, “capsule” style wardrobe. So far we’ve covered; cable knit sweaters, wool coats, tailored trousers, cardigans, blazers, and now t-shirts.
