14 Super-soft T-shirts That Are Perfect for Travel
The perfect T-shirt will not constrict, rub, itch, stretch, or cause any sort of general discomfort when shuffling through security or settling into your seat. What it will do: roll easily for packing, allow for light layers, double as airplane jammies, and pair well with pretty much anything.
Throw one on over some boyfriend jeans with white sneakers, layer it under a slip dress and step into strappy sandals, pair it with trendy sweats and head from the airport to the gym. The outfit possibilities are endless — and endlessly comfy.
A self-proclaimed T-shirt connoisseur, I pretty much refuse to leave the house for the airport without a tee on my body, an extra one in my carry-on, and a few rolled up in my suitcase. It might sound like overkill, but it’s my tried and true wardrobe staple. Below, a handful of favorite styles that will keep you comfy and cute while getting from house to airport, through the air, and to your final destination without sacrificing style along the way.
Constructed from soft materials like cotton, linen, and rayon, these shirts range both in style and price, so there’s something for every budget. Whether you prefer a sophisticated, simplistic look (hey there, solids and stripes) or one that leans toward edgy (think dark colors, distressed materials), we’ve got your torso covered on your next flight.
