Q: Dear Favorite Fashionista, my question is about T-shirts under dress shirts: mandatory, optional, or never? A: Optional – It depends on your personal preference and the fabric of the dress shirt. Some dress shirts have a tighter thread weave than others and provide more coverage, but if the fabric is very thin and you are not wearing a t-shirt underneath you can end up showing a bit more of yourself than you intended when you take off your jacket. The T-shirt also serves to absorb sweat which helps curtail underarm yellowing on the dress shirt.
