If you’re like us, you know that nailing the perfect casual-and-not-trying-too-hard outfit can be a task. A satin top and jeans seems too dressy. And a tank and blazer seems too stuffy. But pairing jeans with a tee takes all the worry out of our days. Here’s where to find six of the best shirts in the city, all of which are worthy of a spot in your closet.
BEST CLASSIC TEE: HIGH-GAUGE DEEP-V TEE AT JAMES PERSE
Everyone needs a great basic cotton tee like this one ($85) from James Perse in Highland Park Village. Dress it up with multiple layers of drop necklaces or dress it down with boyfriend jeans and wedges.
BEST DRESSY TEE: LINEN METALLIC BOYFRIEND TEE AT J.CREW
Think loose yet chic with this one from J.Crew ($45). Pair it with denim or layer it under work attire for a bit of shine.
BEST TEE WITH A FUNNY PHRASE: PRIVATE PARTY AT PLANET BLUE
With sayings such as ?Models + Bottles? and ?Locals Only,? Planet Blue has the best selection of Private Party tees (from $52) to suit our every mood.
BEST SOUVENIR TEE: DALLAS SKYLINE AT OUTLINE THE SKY
It’s apparent that Dallas has a stunning skyline (we’re partial to it), so what better way to send a little love from the Big D than with an Outline the Sky tee ($32)? It’s the perfect gift for a homesick native or the hard-to-shop-for person in your life.
BEST TEE FOR A GOOD CAUSE: GOOD HYOUMAN TEES AT BEKA LANE
Generous in size, Good hYOUman tees motivate us to soften our souls on a daily basis. And purchasing this tee ($38) from Dallas-based Beka Lane provides gifts and donations to women battling cancer.
