As somewhat of a T-shirt junkie, I take my basics very seriously. You sort of have to when your daily uniform consists of jeans, a T-shirt, and a revolving door of accessories. So what exactly constitutes a perfect tee? If you ask me, it’s one that looks and feels like you’ve had it for years (yet is miraculously clean), fits like you’re borrowing it from your boyfriend, is affordable, and seems just nondescript enough that no one will you where you snagged it—until now. Today, I’m introducing you to Project Social T: The Los Angeles–based brand that makes the best lived-in basics, all of which are always under $100 but often available for well below $50. From basic tees to cross-front crop tops and lace-up tanks, it’s got you covered no matter what you’re looking for. Plus, Project Social T is available on some of our favorite shopping sites, including Urban Outfitters, Topshop, and Revolve Clothing in addition to its own site.
Does it really get better than that? Didn’t think so—so shop our top picks from Project Social T below!
