Best of Basics: Tees

I am crazy about a good basic! A basic is an essential piece that you can wear over and over. Something cute, comfortable, versatile AND affordable. It also has to be multi-purposeful: Does it make a good layering piece? Can you easily dress it up? These are all important things to think about before purchasing.

Savings Tip: Thinking ahead of the many & creative ways you can wear an item can help save you money. You’ll be inclined to wear the item more often.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite basic tees that you can wear year round.

Target has a current line called Universal Threads. It’s a casual line with a vintage touch. Such a great worn in feel. There are several colors to choose from and they’re $8 each or 3 for $20!

Another great line at Target is A New Day. There are 2 styles that I like from this line. One is fitted with a cotton blend and the other is soft, stretchy and sleek. These are also $8 each or 3 for $20.

Old Navy has a “Luxe” tee line. I am obsessed! It’s a super soft line that has a sleek look. These are the best dress up tees and great for the office with a kimono, cardigan or blazer. These are not your average boxy tee, they have a curved hem. Less than $20.




Relaxed crew neck

Walmart has blown me away with their new line, Time and Tru. Great quality at an awesome price. These tees linked below are all less than $8!

  1. I completely agree about the Time and Tru line! They’re currently my favorite, and their denim line is pretty spectacular, too! Have you tried any of their skirts or dresses yet?

  2. I’m addicted to buying basic tees! I always have to sit and think about what colors I have. I especially love the ones that are soft and just long enough that I can wear them with leggings.
