Fashion Advice: Where to Find White Cotton Shirts

Dear Budget Fashionista,

I have searched long and hard for a white t-shirt made of fabric that isn’t so sheer you can see skin through it.  I love the white-shirt-and-jeans look, but the white shirt part of the equation is always the problem.

Answer: For years I swore by
Old Navy’s Perfect Fit Tees
, which were made of thick cotton, until the powers that be decided to make the shirts out of a thinner cotton. Now, I’m a big fan of the Merona tees at Target and the Faded Glory Tees at Wal-Mart- both priced under $10 a pop. I also like the tees at H&M although they tend to not wash as well as the tees from the other two stores.
