Do you love crewneck tees? Who doesn’t! As classic as it gets, this wardrobe staple is versatile, comfortable, and looks really good on almost anyone when styled properly.
While there are no strict rules for wearing a crewneck (what are rules anyway!), there are some great suggestions that can make your life easier, especially if you’re a newbie in this whole fashion world.
From leisurely weekend looks to smart-casual styles for work, here’s how to style a crewneck properly.
For an active weekend: a crewneck tee and tailored sweats
If you’re used to wearing your old sweats and baggy t-shirt for your weekend hikes, bicycle rides, or any other activities, it’s time to change it.
The fact that you want to be comfortable doesn’t mean you should look sloppy! With one little switch – swapping your oversized tees and sweats to tailored versions, you’ll be both comfortable and stylish! You’re welcome!
For running errands: a neutral crewneck tee and classic denim
Need to get groceries, go pay bills, or visit pick up the dry cleaning? Noting beats a neutral crewneck in white, olive, grey, or brown and classic jeans.
If it gets chilly, just throw on a leather jacket or a tailored hoodie, and you’re good to go!
For game night or drinks at the pub: a crewneck t-shirt and a plaid shirt
Layering a flannel over a T-shirt is a good casual look, and we love it for wearing to a pub, game night with friends, or hanging out in your out-of-town cabin. Game night getting rowdy? You can always tie your shirt around your waist if it gets too warm!
If you want to build a rougher look, add some heavy boots and a leather belt; if you want to keep it simple, white leather sneakers will work great!
For every day at the office: a crewneck t-shirt, chinos, and a blazer
Dress shirts can get tight and uncomfortable, especially if you’re spending your whole day at the office. Luckily, we can swap them with a nice, tight crewneck tee that looks just as good (if not better) with your favorite chinos and blazer.
Opt for classic colors like grey, navy, white, olive, or burgundy to keep things serious, and don’t forget quality footwear like Chelsea boots or Derby shoes.
For a night out: a crewneck tee and a leather jacket
Who doesn’t love a good leather jacket? It makes any outfit look so much better and gives you at least a few extra “cool” points.
It’s also super easy to style with your favorite crewneck t-shirt, skinny black jeans, posh loafers, Oxfords, or white leather sneakers!
Keep your night-out outfit strong by adding accessories such as leather bracelets, necklaces, or silk neckerchiefs.
The key to looking stylish is always opting for the best quality items.
Make sure you always choose high-quality crewneck t-shirts, like the crew necks from Fresh Clean Tees, to nail the “casual yet super stylish” look.
For a semi-formal look: a crewneck t-shirt and slacks
What are slacks, you ask? Usually, slacks are pants made of a smooth, wool knit or a blended fabric that looks more formal than your other pant styles. Slacks are actually an old term for dress pants that still somehow stayed in our daily vocabulary.
And while you may think you need a dress shirt to pair with the slacks, a relatively tight, classic, high-quality crewneck looks incredible too!
This style works on its own, but you can always add a blazer for a complete dressed-up look.
We also recommend experimenting with colors. We love olive, grey, and beige combinations!
Lastly, how about skipping socks to keep things exciting? Trust us on this one.
