The white tee is a classic summer staple. It’s like a blank canvas, so the accessory options are endless. Plus, white goes with everything, so you can make little quick changes throughout the day to take you from work to the beach to dinner without having to carry around an extra top! But sometimes you yearn for a more elevated look than a mere tee – a piece that’s less predictable. Here are my top white tops for those days when a little something extra is needed:
Alexander Wang Sheer-Stripe Tee: Summer always brings more skin baring outfits, but if you’re going to show off, try to make the cutouts unexpected. These two lines are seductively high, yet their thinness keeps the look classy. At Neiman Marcus for $425.
Donna Karan Cold-Shoulder Long-Sleeve Twisted Top: With just a little twist at the shoulder, the long-sleeve white tee is transformed. At Neiman Marcus for $595.
Markus Lupfer Sequin-Collar Cotton-Jersey Top: Embellished collars continue to be a dominating trend, and with shiny pink sequin scales, I bet they will be topping the charts for quite some time to come. On NET-A-PORTER for $205.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Studded Short-Sleeve Tee: Frugal Snobs can sharpen their edge with this tee’s spattering of gold studs. At Neiman Marcus for $53 (from $89.50).
Nina Ricci Cotton Dentelle Lace Top: This ornate Nina Ricci will go with anything from a skirt to a bikini! While it’s gorgeous, it’s also unlined, so pop on a cami before you flaunt your summery style. On Luisa via Roma for $592.
