Crew neck t-shirts and when to wear one

We've all seen the "crew" neck t-shirt—you know, the traditional round neckline that you see on all t-shirts. You might already own a couple in your wardrobe, and you might not even be able to remember what those shirts are made of—cotton? Linen? Synthetic material that was designed to wick sweat away from your body?

There's a reason we take these shirts for granted: they're comfortable, they're versatile and they're easy to wear. In this article, we'll show you how to incorporate them into your wardrobe with ease.
