When it comes to versatility, nothing quite matches the white T-shirt. About as simple as garments come, the enduring presence of this staple comes down to its ease of wear and the multitude of styling opportunities it affords, looking as comfortable with tailored trousers as it does with a pair of running shorts.

Of course, a crisp white tee is appropriate in all seasons, but particularly well suited to the bright light of spring and summer. And now that we're entering white-tee season, whether you’re settling in for a lazy day around the house or prepping for a full day out and about, we've picked out some of the best ones, from luxury brands and beyond.

Thanks to the white tee's timeless nature, adaptability, and therefore cost per wear, you may be willing to invest a little more in a quality option. Including completely stripped-back versions of the style from adidas to Vetements, this roundup is testament to the length and breadth of the white T-shirt.
