Last week, you may have read about our penchant for multitasking makeup. Turns out- we don’t just like our beauty products to work double duty, but our clothes too! A basic tee (like this impossibly soft grey number by James Perse) goes above and beyond its call of duty, and will end up being your most worn item.

When it comes to basics, our instinct is to style it with a cozy sweater for a rainy day. However, a cotton tee is the actually ideal building block for a fancier look. Paired with your favorite pattern, you’re able to amp up the accessories and not feel overdressed (or over the top). Though, we’ll warn you- this tee is so comfortable… you may want to sleep in it, too!
