I Wear This Simple Shirt Every Day—Here Are Some of the Best Styles to Buy

There are a few closet standbys I couldn’t live without because they more or less act as the anchors to my daily looks. And yep, a black top—whether that’s a tee, a knit, or a sweatshirt—is one of those go-tos. What can I say? The versatility factor is just where it’s at. Basically, anything can pair flawlessly with a simple black top. And one site where I routinely pick up my affordable favorites is Amazon. I’m partial to the variety from the Amazon Essentials line that I’m wearing here.

On that note, I thought I’d cruise through the site to uncover some of the best black shirts from a style perspective and also based on positive customer reviews. With that in mind, keep scrolling to shop a range of A+ shirts if you’re interested in adding something new to your arsenal. I also included an actual customer review for each.

"I love these shell tops. Great fit and easy to wear for travel. Doesn't wrinkle. My favorite shell." — Amazon customer

"Super soft and there is a nice stretch to the fabric. Fits as expected. My new favorite tank!" — RachelGoss

"Fits perfectly, just what I expected." — Queenny

"Got this shoulder pad t-shirt yesterday and I wore immediately all day." — linsey

"Great shell or stand alone tank. Very well made, double layered." — A.Barton


"These shirts are awesome for lounging around the house or working out in. They are super soft and seem very well made. I will probably end up buying more because they are so comfy. I generally wear a medium (I’m small busted) and bought a medium. They are loose fitting but that’s perfect for me. I could probably even do a small, so size down if you want them tighter fitting." — T

"Just got this T-shirt, since I stuck at home with quarantine I had to buy some more comfortable clothes. This T-shirts are great, soft and its 100% cotton. I love it. Easy to wash, no need to iron. Bought two different colors,and I think I am gonna buy more. Highly recommend for home, sport or just for leisure time." — NT

"Fits perfect and goes with everything! Would definitely buy again." — Katie

"Ordered a few of these. So soft. Comfortable. Highly recommended. True to size!" — Mary

"Ordered my usual medium. Nice long length, but not too long. Looser flattering fit. Almost sweater material but not too thick and heavy. Really soft shirt. Perfect for work either on its own or with a cardigan over it. I bought in black then ordered another in gray." — Erin

"Loved it. This is my second one and I am already going to buy more colors of it. The material is soft and the fit is perfect. The length is just right and perfect for summers or layering. Surely recommend it!" — SP

"Comfy and fabric is soft. Loving it." — Pamela


"This is my new favorite shirt. It's true to size. The sleeves are really cute—and not tight around my arms. The material is light and great for summer. It is a bit thinner than I expected—I wear a black cami under it. Great for ballpark days or pair it with cute pants or a skirt for work. If you're tired of the plain old black T-shirt, buy this. It's classic and classy." — Amanda

"I love this shirt!! Purchased it in four different colors, each one equally beautiful. The tencel is luxurious, washes like a dream, Amazon, where have these shirts been???" — DahliaAliciaSteensen

"It's a little short, like some other reviewers mentioned, but very well made and cute. I love the neckline as it gives it a sort of sweetness. The puffy sleeves are very fun." — MinnaYi


"I really like them and you can't beat the price. They fit a little closer to my body than my last Hanes sweatshirts but not constricting. They are very comfortable." — Jayme

"I have needed to replace my old worn out short sleeved sweatshirt for a long time. This is perfect! Comfy, roomy & just right for those times when I need a relaxing day at home. Can’t beat the price either!! Strongly considering getting a second in another color." — D.Yager

"One of my favorite pullovers. Love it so much." —Dani

"I like this hoodie a lot. It fits me perfectly and is very comfortable and warm. It did not shrink when I washed it and just got softer and more comfortable. It works wearing it with or without a T-shirt underneath. I highly recommend it!" — JamieandHeather

"Super comfy. Slightly large. I usually wear XL and bought a Large and it's just right for me." — Amazon customer

"Great quality and super cute. The sweater is very comfortable and holds up great in the wash." — HappyGirl

"This top is so soft and fits true to size! Love it!" — Amazon customer
