5 Days, 5 Ways

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Aug 9 2020

How often do you wear t-shirts? Whatever number you might estimate, it’s probably not an exaggeration to double it in the summer.

So now that we agree you are, indeed, a “t-shirt person,” how do you choose which t-shirt to wear?

While I may typically be Team Crewneck, a v-neck t-shirt just feels right when summer weather hits.

Why? Well, a v-neck offers a more relaxed fit, and gives you more breathing room at the neck.

But don’t worry, this tee looks just as appropriate as a crewneck, so long as you go with a style that’s not meant to be an undershirt. Ahem, this holds true for crewneck tees, too.

Moreover, the collar shape is visually elongating, which is always a good thing! (Well, almost. If you have a suuuuuper long neck, stick with a crewneck!)

How should a v-neck t-shirt fit?

To make your v-neck tee feel like its own layer and not an undershirt, choose one with a slim fit (but not TOO tight!), and a neckline on the higher side.

Sorry not sorry. No deep v’s here.

The more relaxed fit of a v-neck tee is just right when you want to look good without sacrificing comfort.

Below, check out 5 v-neck t-shirt outfits for guys:

MONDAY

loafers: G. H. Bass | pomade: Blind Barber

Wear it well: When it comes to stylish v-neck t-shirt outfits for guys in the summer, why not kick things off with a suit?

When you want to dress down a summer suit, like this seersucker style, a v-neck tee is the perfect choice.

TUESDAY

shorts: Outerknown | water bottle: bkr

Wear it well: Your v-neck tee has a little more breathability than your standard crewneck. Meaning, it’s definitely worth pulling on for your next outdoor adventure.

WEDNESDAY

jacket: sold out (similar) | glasses: Warby Parker

Wear it well: A v-neck t-shirt serves as the perfect neutral backdrop when trying out more eye-catching styles, like these windowpane trousers.

THURSDAY

boots: Clarks | socks: Pair of Thieves | bag: Filson

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…).

FRIDAY

jeans: Buck Mason | button-up shirt: United by Blue (similar)

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.
