Refined Knits: The Basics We Know You’ll Love

The summer item everyone needs in their closet- a great knit! Whether it’s for layering or wearing alone, a go-to tee is essential for every wardrobe and every season. Here are our stylists’ favorite knits!

The Perfect White Tee

We love the blondie tank. Available at Truluck Boutique. It’s thicker and the perfect length. This is one you don’t need to tuck in.


The entire Women’s collection of this Los Angeles-based knit company is amazing! We love this v-neck shown above. So chic.

Frame Le Mid Rise V-Neck

A perfect top for the woman who wants a bit of “substance” to her knit, but doesn’t want to sacrifice trend. This should be a staple in your wardrobe!

The Great 

A nice weight that isn’t tissue, but an upgrade from your classic tee! The v-neck is available at Rowe Boutique.

Majestic Filatures

What’s great about this shirt is that it comes in a couple of different necklines as well as different sleeve lengths. So you can really find an option that works for you. If you don’t like this blend of materials, Majestic makes a whole lineup of white tees that would be perfect for any personal style preference and they are great for layering!

J Crew

The Perfect Tee lives up to its name! It’s slim-fitting in the best way, great for a dressier t-shirt under a blazer or cardigan. Also perfect for the gal who wants a bit more of her upper arms covered without the bulk of extra fabric!

We also love The Vintage Tee from Jcrew as well. A roomier fit, classic worn with denim or a pair of tailored shorts! And the organic blend honors sustainability, which we love.

If you’re looking for easy casual T-shirt vibes, this linen option from Vince is perfect for you. Comes with a slightly longer sleeve as well as a V-neck and crewneck option. This is perfect for easy summer living.

For the gents, doesn’t The Broken-in Tee sound like a dream t-shirt?! Designed to look and feel like your well-loved t-shirt, but with a quality that lasts. It’s also garment dyed twice and washed for ultra-softness. He (YOU) will love it!!

Robert Barakett

This is a go-to t-shirt for that luxe elevated casual feel for men.  These are great to wear under a sportcoat because of the clean neckline and the variety of basic and seasonal colors.  They are 100% prima cotton and wash up really well.

Banana Republic 

This is a v-neck option by Banana Republic.  A great price point for such a great quality t-shirt.  We like to style these under a denim or bomber jacket for a night out!
