We all need a black T shirt in our wardrobe. If only for the reason that if all else fails when getting ready in the morning, we know we can always fall back on that trusty, versatile purchase. Teamed with a pair of jeans, you can never go wrong.

But how about making your simple, black T your outfit’s statement item for a change? This Helmut Lang jersey number does just that, with its dye-effect metallic finish. Worn in place of your regular black top, this simple piece will give your ensemble that extra edge. $195 from Net-a-Porter
