5 Days, 5 Ways: The V-Neck Tee

a v important tee to have

By Gabi Meyers | Jun 26 2017

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.
