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 staples of your closet for a reason, so it’s good to buy clothes that are made with high-quality materials and designed to blend beautifully with the rest of your wardrobe and will last a long time. That’s what happens when you have a sustainable pledge behind your clothing.
Finding the Perfect Tank Top
Besides slim-fit t-shirts, a tank top is a classic for good reason. Easy to pair and shows off just enough skin that you can feel comfortable while soaking up the sun, having a go-to tank top (or two) is an important part of building a reliable wardrobe. Size-inclusive tanks are available for everyone, in a variety of colors.
The Maxine Tank is the perfect choice for anybody looking for a tank top this summer (or really any season!). This size-inclusive tank is made from soft, high-stretch, and sustainable European jersey and comes in three colors: black, lilac purple, and light beige. Regardless of what color or size you choose, you can complete a look by throwing on a pair of vertical pleat pants like the Archie Trouser and some low-maintenance go-to heels like the Parker Sandals and you are ready to take the world by storm.
Another great choice that should be in everyone’s capsule wardrobe alongside a sustainable t-shirt is the Harper Tank. This foundational staple is a versatile gem, and with plus sizes, this is the tank top for everyone. It comes in four colors: light beige, off white, black, and red, so there will always be an outfit to match this tank top. If you want a top to cover this tank, why not pick a white or black button-down like the Raphaela Boyfriend Shirt?
Back to Basics with a Plain White T-Shirt
White tees are a classic look for so many reasons because regardless of what you pair them with, you’re always going to look iconic. It could be the basic but never boring white Reign Top or its edgier counterpart, the off white Bowen Top, but either way, you will get a timeless look. Sophisticated with a bit of edge, that’s the Marcella way. Here are just a few things you can pair with a plain white t-shirt.
You can’t get more timeless than this combo. If you’re ever feeling a little indecisive, and just don’t know what to put on, a white tee shirt and jeans are the perfect combo. A light blue pair of blue jeans will never disappoint.
Pairing the clean look of a plain white t-shirt (or a black t-shirt) with an unbuttoned overcoat is a great way to be fashionable while still being cozy if it's a little colder outside. Make sure your coat has edgier features like an asymmetrical bottom hem and diagonal two-way zipper like on the Maren Wool Jacket, and you have an outfit that is both fashionable and comfortable.
If you really want to rock an outfit that is edgy but not extra, grab a pair of leather pants like the black vegan leather Vinci Pants and throw on a pair of old white sneakers and you are ready for the night ahead of you. Regardless of how unexpected your night gets, this fitted t-shirt is ready for anything.
Another classic combo of edgy but not extra, grab a denim jacket like the Rio Denim Jacket, featuring an oversized silhouette. Perfect for a stroll outside or if you’re going out to grab groceries, the denim jacket and plain white t-shirt combo can’t be overlooked.
