I Wear White Tops More Than Anything Else In My Closet—Here Are My 30 Favorites

If you were to take a peek into my color-coordinated closet you may notice something striking stick out at you. My section of white tops is staggeringly large. I never actually noticed how many white tops I own until my husband remarked upon it one day. What can I say? They’re a great investment—from basic white tees to button-downs and knits, they’re so incredibly versatile. As someone who lives in L.A., they feel lighter, brighter, more casual, and fresher than my black tops. They pair wonderfully with jeans and skirts alike. They look crisp and polished and can easily be worn from day-to-night. In fact, I wear white tops more than anything else in my closet.

So today I wanted to share some of my favorite white tops I own in every category. From bodysuits to button-downs if you’re looking to invest in a chic and versatile white top, take a peek at these below. There’s a little something for every budget.

A WWW best-seller, this is hands down one of my favorite white tees. I love the relaxed fit and the fact my bra doesn’t show through—not bad for $8!

Madewell is another favorite place I go to for everyday tees. I own a handful of these whisper cotton V-neck tees along with their crew neck white tees.
