As fashion increasingly skews in favor of comfort, the basic T-shirt has become one of the top women’s trends of summer 2020. But just because it’s one of fashion’s simplest items doesn’t mean it’s boring.

Cropped styles, oversized statement pieces and graphic tees can all produce a unique look. And when paired with the right layers and accessories, a T-shirt can suit virtually any summer activity, from lake outings to barbecues to Netflixing in the air conditioning. Rivet rounded up some of the best T-shirts to fill your closet this summer.
