Spring is around the corner, so you might want to start stocking up on V-neck -shirts. Oh, who are we kidding? Any season is a good season to hoard collect and wear V-neck t-shirts. They’re indispensable, as they can be dressed up with a cardigan or blazer, go sporty with a track jacket or hoodie, or worn alone. Doesn’t matter if you own thirty white V-neck t-shirts, you can always use one more.
While there’s nothing wrong with the classic crew neck t-shirt, there’s something a tad more sophisticated about V-neck t-shirts. And when you take that silhouette and change up the fabric a bit, use jersey or a fine pima cotton and possibly play around with the cut; make it a slim cut, or turn it into something oversized, that V-neck stops being a basic background player and becomes a leading character and can really shape what you’re wearing from something okay to something amazing. Texture not only creates visual interest and a nice contrast between materials, but it also makes what you’re wearing more approachable and touchable.
We’ve rounded up men’s V-neck tees for every budget and in a rainbow of colors. Scroll through and find a few that’ll take you from now until next summer and possibly beyond.
