Some things in life can be easily fixed, like a classic white tee and jeans combo for when you’re having a “I have nothing to wear” kind of day. This entire outfit is Zara, and the t-shirt is so soft, the jeans so comfy, I could live in them.
I once read that Chip Bergh, Levi’s CEO and president, believes you should never wash a pair of jeans because it damages the material, so you should do it very very rarely. But what about that feeling you get when your jeans come fresh out of the dryer, so soft and warm, suddenly being again the perfect-fitting pair they once were? It’s like wearing them for the very first time! And falling in love with them all over again. So what about that Mr Chip Bergh? Should we just ignore that?
Okay enough with that unnecessary rant. I think the best tip I can give anyone who’s about to purchase a simple white shirt – a staple in any human wardrobe – is to simply get as close to 100% cotton as you possibly can. Does that mean it’s going to be a bit more expensive? Yes, probably. But cotton is a very breathable material, which basically means: gold standards, an abundance of softness and it just feels like a hug. The majority of T-shirts are made of 100% cotton, polyester, or a cotton/polyester blend. And from my experience, you want to stay away from polyester as much as you can (I know this is not very realistic for every piece of clothing you get but hey, we can try and have some standards, right?).
What is your favourite thing to wear when you “have nothing to wear”? Mine would be a very classic white shirt, jeans and converse combo. Some things just never go out of style.
