For pretty much any fashion girl, a white T-shirt is essential for most outfits. From pairing the staple with jeans to dressing it up with a blazer, I always find myself wearing white tees and giving them to my clients to wear. Recently I’ve been finding that for my A-list clients there are a few details in white T-shirts that I always look for, and my go-to brand for tees is ATM. The brand offers quality options and styles that are a great way to add a twist to the wardrobe staple.

After suggesting this classic white T-shirt style to many of my celeb clients, I’ve decided to share some of their favorite styles when it comes to this wardrobe essential. At the moment, I’ve noticed that some of the white T-shirts that are most highly recommended by my clients have a few important elements. The most popular ones tend to be a little boxy with a scoop neck and also a little longer. I find that these features tend to give my styling more flexibility and can be paired well with pretty much any look. Trying a new take on the classic white tee is sure to give you a style boost when it comes to styling the essential yourself.
