Solid V-neck tees are necessary for building up a casual wardrobe. They can be the perfect shirt for lounging around at home. The more form-fitting ones can be simple looks worthy of a night spent bar hopping. And that’s what The Underwear Expert’s feature V-neck tees are all about: simplicity.
Model Edward Frame wears four V-neck tees in our exclusive photoshoot – one navy, one white, one grey, and one black. Each earns easy style points simply for their V-shaped necklines. And thanks to the different colors, we get varying degrees of casual and class.
The white shirt is obviously the most casual V-neck tee Edward models. It’s designed with a deeper V than most which pushes it into slightly less casual territory. The extra show of skin also makes this tee in particular a little sexier than others. That being said, white tees are easy enough to dress up – especially in fall. If you want to wear white after Labor Day, we suggest pairing your V-neck with a leather jacket and black denim. This will give the black and white contrast will have a little edge.
Solid navy and grey V-neck tees are even easier to work into your everyday looks. In terms of color, they’re a little more stylish than solid white. Navy can be paired with beige, black and grey to bring out the richness of the color. Grey can be paired with just about anything. It’s the most versatile neutral in fashion and can compliment any color imaginable.
Black V-neck tees, though, are still where it’s at. A nice black V-neck is just as essential to your wardrobe as a black brief. Throw a blazer over it and you have a 20-something’s business casual style. Pair it with denim and you’re good to go for a night on the town or a party at a friend’s place. The denim can be dark blue, grey, more black – hell, you could even opt for more seasonal pairs such as red or military green.
In other words, even when it comes to V-neck tees, you really can’t go wrong with black.
