Of course you have a favorite white tee, but have you guys considered investing in a sleek black counterpart? While white is the perfect color to throw on with anything at anytime, black provides all the same ease of wear, but with a little bit more finesse. The best part? It hides stains just a little bit better.

While you may run though a Hanes 3 pack of white tees in no time, I suggest investing in and – and properly caring for – your black tee. Look for a fabric that is thick enough to not be see through, and has a bit of drape in it, like this cotton jersey style below.
