The white printed t-shirt is a closet staple at this point, especially with the rise of casually dressy fashion, and if you don’t have at least one in your closet, you are missing out on a sea of outfit possibilities. Everyone remembers Rihanna stepping out in a $400+ Céline T-shirt, but not everyone can copy that effortlessly chic look on the same budget as the R&B and Pop superstar.
