There are a few wardrobe essentials in life - a trusty pair of jeans, a good set of high heels, and a cosy jumper that's become your go-to for cold, rainy days.

And for many of us women, a t-shirt features highly on that list of must-haves.

A t-shirt is the perfect, versatile piece of clothing, pairing equally as well with jeans as it does with a midi skirt, or even under a dress.

But often, finding a t-shirt with the right cut and fit on the high street can be tricky. So luckily, Marks & Spencer are here to help.

The high-street store announced on their Instagram yesterday that they had improved the fit of four of their t-shirts from their basics collection; The Relaxed, The Fitted, The Straight, and The Regular.

The Relaxed t-shirt is a slouchy fit, meaning it'll work well for any chilled-out summer outfits you have planned. At £6.50, it's available in 12 different colours, so you're bound to find one you like too.

The Fitted t-shirt does what is says on the tin, and costs just £4.50, the most affordable of the lot. You can buy it HERE (opens in new tab).

Next up, The Straight t-shirt is a classic, sophisticated cut. It also costs £4.50, and you can buy it HERE (opens in new tab).

And finally, the Regular fit, with a boat-neck (Meghan Markle's favourite) and mid-length sleeves, is one of M&S's best-selling, and ensures a slimming shape that fits to the contours of your body. Like the Relaxed, it's also on sale for £6.50, and comes in six different colours.

Giving tips on how to style the Regular fit, M&S said, 'We love the style paired with these striped straight leg trousers and a colour pop bag.'

Each of the t-shirts are available in sizes 6 - 24 too.

M&S customers seemed keen to get their hands on the newly updated tees, with one saying on Instagram, 'Love your basics tee range! My favourite! ❤️

While another commented, 'Just ordered 3! Lovely colours and has a really nice drape.', and a fourth said, 'Really pleased with the relaxed it’s a great fit 👍😊'.
