Styling Your T-Shirts for Summer

Posted by

As the days have become longer and the sun stronger, T-shirts have made their way back to the forefront of our wardrobe. Mind you, they probably never left, but they’ve been hidden away, layered underneath hoodies and jumpers.

The classic T-shirt is a staple in everyone’s wardrobe.

As you look over your T-shirt wardrobe (who doesn’t have a collection of t-shirts?), make sure you have good quality material and the right fit. If you don’t know the right fit for your T-shirts, here are some pointers to use.

Finding the right fit for your T-shirt

Keep these points in mind when you are shopping for t-shirts (or assessing your current t-shirts).

1. The shape of the T-shirt should have a nice line following the shape of your body. No boxy t-shirts that hang.

2. Keep the hem at the level of your hip bone. No higher, no lower.

3. The fit of the sleeves should be slightly tight around your arms and the hem end at the middle of your bicep.

4. The shoulder seam should sit on the edge of your shoulder. It shouldn’t dip below the shoulder nor be closer to your neck.

When considering if a T-shirt passes the test to be a good fit, these pointer can help you show up looking like you made an effort to look good for your friend’s party or meeting someone for a date.

Save those boxy and very loose fitting t-shirts for running or working out at the gym.

Casual

T-shirts are the essence of casual. When you get to know some brands that fit you well, you can feel confident that you look your best. The selections from Billionaire Boys Club and Armani offer lots of options. Pair your favourite t-shirt with shorts or jeans for a timeless combo.

Street

For a modern street look, it is all about the classic white v-neck t-shirt, a pair of black jeans and white trainers. Keep a clean contrast with the black and white instead of a monotone look of all black. Add a pair of sunglasses and a black motorcycle jacket for extra style and warmth.

Smart

T-shirts were designed to be casual. As with many designs, the casual is being designed to be a tad more formal. Paul & Shark , Ma.Strum and Lacoste offer solid neutral t-shirts that can be paired with a blazer to create that smart formal look.

T-shirts are one of the most classic items in fashion. It is a casual piece that has crossed over to embody a more formal but still relaxed look. Ensuring your T-shirts fit correctly will keep you in style for as long as the t-shirt is around.
