No matter your lifestyle, tees are the mainstay of your wardrobe. Tees bring versatility to a capsule wardrobe by acting as the building blocks for different seasons and occasions. From office to off-duty looks, a basic tee can transform any outfit. It’s all down to the cut of the sleeve, the neckline and the fit. Curating the perfect set of tees is essential for a functioning capsule wardrobe built to mix and match.
We’ve got you covered for all your t-shirt needs ranging from slim, relaxed, boyfriend and boxy fits. Our edit of tees from Lacausa, Kowtow and Worn Store each bring something new to an ensemble.
The Ribbed Tee.
BY WORN STORE
A ribbed tee is wardrobe classic for pairing with denim or elevating with tailored separates. The Ribbed Tee by Worn Store is our favourite for tucking seamlessly into bottoms. Crafted from luxe organic cotton with a thin rib knit for a comfortable yet refined finish. Designed with a classic round neck and slim fit for a flattering silhouette, this tee is sure to be on high rotation in your closet. Available in black and grey, you’ll be set for any occasion.
For office wear, we pair our ribbed tees with the Olivia Trousers by Jillian Boustred and the Heather Skirt by Van Der Kooij. Equally suited to casual wear, we team our grey ribbed tee with the Wide Leg Pant by Kowtow.
