Next to blue jeans and Chuck Taylors, there's nothing quite as all-American as the humble white T-shirt. It's versatile, it's cool, and it's a piece that's able to be worn any day of the year, in any season. That said, there's something about summer that makes the white tee especially necessary, as it can anchor statement pieces such as wildly-printed shorts or colored jeans, add a casual element to silky, beaded, or even sequin skirts, or simply just convey a sense of summer ease with a pair of blue denim cutoff shorts or a basic pair of overalls.

Whether you're partial to standard cotton crewnecks (hello, Hanes), the paper-thin slouchy styles made popular by designers such as Alexander Wang or Kimberly Ovitz, or whatever you're able to steal from your boyfriend's closet, we've highlighted 21 stylish ways to wear your plan white T-shirt this summer!
