Isn’t it great when staples become trends? When what regular people wear all.the.time. becomes ‘the look’ you know fashion’s either at a loss, OR finally onto something. From my mom to my dad, to the guy at the store, or the super sophisticated woman living on 5th Ave. or whatever… each and every one is wearing a t-shirt this summer. Like all the time. Sure… the latter is probably casually chilling in Alexander Wang basic white tee, while I or you or some random mortal is wearing a more affordable version.
Whatever the case, summer’s verdict is crystal clear: t-shirts are the new IT tops. From casual days, to office hours and even more polished events t-shirts can be the best look you’ll be rocking this season. And the most comfortable and affordable.
Which only brings me to my next question: can we wear tees all the time and everywhere? And if so… how?
I happen to think no t-shirt is bad t-shirt, and if you’re at a loss pick your fave jeans and your partner’s white tee and you’ll be fine. That’s my trick and it saved the day for me quite a lot recently.
OR we could also wear these 4 t-shirt styles all summer long. (all year long, why the hell not?)
1.The BASIC t-shirt.
Think white and black tees, although more recently red, blue, yellow and nudes are having such a big moment. Plain old t-shirts. No texts, extra frills just cotton basic tops in a size that fits but is never fitted.
They look absolutely amazing for office paired with black or white pants and a pair of low heel mules/slides.
For a more causal approach opt for jeans, shorts or skirts, and for evening styles just switch to heels, or some fancy shoes.
2. The VINTAGE t-shirt.
It’s your 80s and 90s fave band tee, only slightly reinvented, distressed, oversized, or as of more recently more polished and worn with smart pieces to create a more sophisticated look.
The hot style of 2018 summer though is oversized vintage tees worn as dresses or just over shorts.
3. The SLOGAN t-shirt.
What was once your dated ‘I love coffee’ coffee tee is now your trendy ‘coffee’ t-shirt. The tees have become more simple and the slogans either very serious, making a true point of something, OR very random and funny.
4. The LOGO t-shirt.
If you got it, flaunt it baby. Basically ever since that Gucci t-shirt became famous all big brands and fashion houses are following examples and taking it to the next sartorial tee level, hence the massive logo trend.
Logo t-shirts look fab either in oversize, or medium size worn with jeans or check pants, underneath blazers, or tucked in denim skirts.
I do’t know about you but t-shirts for me are probably that 1 fashion item I couldn’t live without. I’ve been living in them forever, and I somehow keep choosing the denim and t-shirt combo over and over again. More-so lately I’m stuck in t-shirts and whatever other type of bottoms, not necessarily jeans. To me, tees are the wining ticket to whatever fashion game you’re playing.
