Help me find plain black tops

I'm looking for plain black tops to wear with coloured jeans.
I've been wearing hideous patterned tops for years due to being overweight with no confidence. I've lost some weight and am starting to take care of how i dress. I find pain black very flattering.

Elbow or 3/4 length sleeves preferably and not lycra-tastic (I have a way to go yet! )

I can't find any anywhere. Please help!

Uniqlo great quality, lovely soft cotton and last forever. Can't fault them at all.

Am sure some actual stylish people will be along but in the meantime, Sainsburys had some in a fortnight ago. Very simple.

I've always found basic black long sleeved tees at primark and h&m

H&M are great and Primark do long length strappy black vests, I think they're classed as short dresses or something but I wear them under tshirts. Only £4 and I have loads smile

And well done on the weight loss!

Primark will have every type of basic top in various colours, including black.

Thanks I think I'll try Primark first.
