5 Days, 5 Ways: The V-Neck Tee
a v important tee to have
How often do you wear tees? Whatever number you think that is, I’m sure it’s double in the summer. So now that we agree you are a tee person, how do you choose *which* tee to wear?
While I may typically be team crewneck, a v-neck definitely feels right when the summer weather hits. A v-neck has a more relaxed fit, yet feels more refined than the standard crewneck. The collar shape is visually elongating, which can (visually) give you a hotter physique to match the rising temperatures. To make your v-neck tee feel like it’s own layer and not an undershirt, choose one with a slim yet boxy fit, and a neckline on the higher side – no deep v’s here.

Wear it well: A v-neck tee is the perfect choice to dress it down your summer suiting.
Wear it well: Your v-neck tee has a little more breathability than your standard crewneck, so it’s definitely worth wearing on your next outdoor adventure.
Wear it well: Use basic pieces, like the v-neck tee, to test more eye-catching styles, like these windowpane trousers.
Wear it well: Wearing a v-neck tee under your work shirt lets you unbutton a bit without everyone seeing what’s underneath (unlike a pesky crewneck…)
Wear it well: Leave your short sleeve button up open with a v-neck underneath, then roll up the sleeves for a look that says casual, but not sloppy. And don’t forget to cuff those jeans, so you can show off your shoes, too.
