A Guide to Sustainable T-Shirts and Tanks That Empower
When it comes to changing style, defying fast fashion, and creating a design philosophy that prioritizes you and your closet, Marcella believes that t-shirts and tanks don’t have to be boring. They are closet staples for a reason, so it’s good to choose elevated t-shirts made with high-quality materials, designed to blend beautifully with the rest of your wardrobe, and to last a long time. That’s what happens when you shop with a brand with our sustainable pledge you can find responsible, luxury basics clothing that truly offers luxury, at a reasonable price.
Finding the Perfect Quality Tank Top
A tank top is an elevated basic for good reason. The best tank tops are easy to style and show off just enough skin so you can feel comfortable while soaking up the sunHaving a go-to minimalist tank top (or two) is also an important part of building a reliable wardrobe because they’re perfect for layering year-round. Size-inclusive tanks are available for everyone, in a variety of essential colors, so you can enjoy your tanks for seasons to come.
Our Maxine Tank is the perfect choice for anybody looking for a women’s fitted tank top for summer (or really any season!). This size-inclusive tank is one of our best tank tops for women, made from soft, high-stretch, and sustainable European jersey in classic NYC black,, or timeless light beige. Wear the tank of your choice a pair of vertical pleat trousers, like the Archie Pants, and some low-maintenance go-to heels like the Celeste Mules, and you are ready to take the world by storm.
Another great staple that should be in everyone’s capsule wardrobe alongside a sustainable t-shirt is the Leonie Tee. This foundational staple is an elevated basic top, and with plus sizes, this is the quality tee shirt for everyone. It comes in two colors: off-white and black, and red, so there will always be an outfit to match this top., Harper looks great layered with a white or black button-down, like our Raphaela Boyfriend Shirt.
Back to Basics with a Plain White T-Shirt
White tees are a classic look for so many reasons, but especially because regardless of what you pair them with, you’re always going to look classically cool. It could be the elevated basic (but never boring!) white Soleil Tee, or its edgier counterpart, the off-white Bowen Top, but either way, you will get a timeless look. Sophisticated with a bit of edge is the Marcella way, and our elevated tee shirts are no exception. Here are just a few things you can pair with a plain white t-shirt.
You can’t get more timeless than a white tee and blue jeans, but choosing an elevated t-shirt really seals the deal. If you’re not sure what to wear you can’t go wrong with an elevated basic top and your favorite jeans for an iconic everyday look—a light blue pair of blue jeans will never disappoint.
Pairing the clean look of a plain white t-shirt (or try black for a more elevated tee) with an unbuttoned overcoat is a great way to be fashionable while still being cozy once temperatures drop. Choose a coat with edgier detailing like the asymmetrical bottom hem and diagonal two-way zipper on our Maren Wool Jacket, and you have an outfit that is both fashionable and comfortable.
If you really want to rock an outfit featuring luxury basic clothing ( think edgy, but not extra), get the look of leather pants with our stretchy black vegan leather Vinci Pants and select a pair of classic sneakers to pair with your quality fitted t-shirt. Regardless of how unexpected your night gets, this fit will have you feeling ready for anything.
For another classic combo, grab a denim jacket—like the Rio Denim Jacket, featuring an oversized silhouette—and throw it over an elevated t-shirt. Perfect for a stroll outside or running errands, the denim jacket and plain white t-shirt combo never fails.
