White T-shirts are undoubtedly one of the most crucial pieces a person's wardrobe can contain. You can wear them with pretty much anything, and they suit all style types—but not all white T-shirts are created equal. Aside from a perfect fit, the number one thing we editors look for in a white tee is a fabric that's thick and tightly woven enough to not be see-through. Sure, a little sheerness might be okay for a fun night out, but if it's maximum wearability you're after, you probably want a T-shirt you can also feel comfortable wearing to the office or brunch with your parents. With that in mind, we're collectively divulging what our favourite non-see-though white T-shirts are, starting at just £6. Keep reading to find out what they are and why we're so loyal to them.

Who What Wear News Editor Erin Fitzpatrick

"I love the Hanes x Karla Crew T-shirt from celeb stylist Karla Welch. It's the perfect white tee as far as I'm concerned, and the £22 price tag definitely helps."

Who What Wear Associate Editor Kristen Nichols

"The perfect everyday tee. I wear this with everything from jeans to high-waisted trousers."

Who What Wear Editor in Chief Kat Collings

"These are just thick enough to be completely opaque but thin enough to make for easy tucking."

Who What Wear Associate Editor Lauren Eggertsen

"These white tees from Double Trouble Gang are definitely my favorites. They are just the right thickness and come with an adorable little embroidery, which is always a great conversation starter."

Who What Wear Senior News Editor Gina Marinelli

"The nice, thick fabric of this boxy tee is the key to its opacity, meaning I never stress about what I wear underneath it. Just pair with high-waisted jeans and go."

Who What Wear Editor Aemilia Madden

"I'm an Everlane loyalist. Comfy, great fit, and affordable, too."

Who What Wear Managing Editor Michelle Scanga

"I scored the below white shirt from Lululemon on clearance a few years back, and since then, it's become my go-to tee. From the perfectly relaxed fit to the slightly stretchy material, this, to me, is the best white tee out there."

Who What Wear Editor Allyson Payer

"They're a bit of a splurge, but based on how much I wear my white Re/Done tees (I'll admit I have a few), they're worth every single penny. They're flattering, soft, and not sheer in the least."

Who What Wear Assistant Editor Anna LaPlaca

"I've found most women's T-shirts to be thinner and therefore see-through, so instead I started shopping in the men's department of Uniqlo to find the perfect standard crewneck tee. I recommend sizing two sizes down for a fitted shape and one size down for a boxier fit."
