Wait, you will not imagine the most effective t-shirt I personal is simply $ 12


When it comes to great clothes basics, I’m always on the lookout for the perfect garments. Whether it’s a pair of jeans that go with everything, a jumpsuit that can be worn smartly or casually, or a jacket that accompanies me through every season, the shopper in me never sleeps. Over the past few years, I’ve spent $ 90 (yes, $ 90) on what I consider to be the “perfect” basic t-shirt. I thought I had found the holy grail of t-shirts, so I kept buying them year after year despite my wallet screaming in protest. I recently decided to look for a better, more affordable option and came across an absolute gem: the Short-Sleeve UltraLite Cropped All-Day Rib-Knit T-Shirt from Old Navy ($ 12).

When I first received it in the mail, my expectations were definitely low. I’ve bought a ton of basics in the past few months and nothing compares to my beloved high-priced t-shirt. But as soon as I opened my package, I knew this top was going to become one of the most worn items in my closet. The material is extremely soft and stretchy and feels a lot more expensive than it actually is. But the first time I tried it on was when I knew I had to buy it in more colors right away.

This shirt has a ribbed crew neck with short sleeves and a cropped, curved shirt-lap hem. The curved hem immediately became one of my favorite features as it gives the shirt that certain something. The cropped length of the t-shirt went perfectly with the leggings I was wearing at the time, and when I tried it on with my high-waisted jeans, I knew I had found the perfect outfit.

I styled these shirts with practically everything I own, but my favorite thing to do is wear the gray color with jeans and sneakers. I styled the black t-shirt with pants and a cropped leather jacket and my outfit looks so chic and put together.

When it comes to keeping these t-shirts in tip-top shape, I wash them cold and toss them in the dryer. I noticed that they are extremely durable: I didn’t have any issues with pilling, holes, or shrinkage. They honestly look just as great as the day I got them. I really can’t believe how affordable they were – I am fully prepared to pull my expensive t-shirts back in favor of these amazing ones from Old Navy.

As for size, I bought mine in my usual XS and it fits perfectly so I’d say it’s the size. They are available in sizes XS-4X as well as in sizes normal, large and petite.

If you’ve been looking for the perfect basic tee that looks great and won’t break the bank, do your closet a favor and grab one of each color before I buy them all.
