This shirt puts a twist on the classic crew neck tee. T-shirts are basics, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Retire your old plain white tee in favor of the universally flattering twist hem t-shirt. The knotted hem, which is usually on your right side or in the middle of the shirt, creates a focal point. It pulls the fabric into a knot right at your hip or in front of your hips. Regular tight t-shirts stretch across your midsection, which can create an unflattering horizontal line. That’s not what you want. In contrast, the crew neck’s more exciting sibling fits looser.
We rounded up the best women’s twist hem t-shirts for you. We found one for the office, one that uses a popular trend you’ve seen all over Insta and one for chill weekends. These t-shirts are made out of cotton and spandex blends, making them a little stretchy and super comfy. The purpose of a t-shirt is to be comfortable, after all.
You can dress these shirts up or down easily, making them work for whatever you’ve got going on in your day. They also come in a wide variety of colors, so you can add several into the basics section of your closet.
