The Most Fashion-Forward Ways To Wear A Tee

T-shirts seem like such an obvious type of wear – we are so used to the simple shape of a tee that it feels so difficult to come up with an innovative way of wearing it. But when you think about it – a skirt or a pair of jeans are equally popular and worn in all possible combinations, and yet every season we are welcoming new trends, which are based on the well known pieces and cuts, but reinvented in a way that makes us go wow! It is all about being creative in the way you match things together and explore the ways you can wear your T-shirts. Let’s take a look at the most fashionable ways to wear a T-shirt this season.

1. Cropped or tied up

Looking at the runways and the resort collections of the major fashion houses one thing is apparent: in the upcoming season you can expect to see a lot of cropped T-shirts. There is of course one “minor” problem with that trend – you really need to have that flat stomach to pull it off. Cropped oversize tees might not be for everyone, but to stay on trend you can use the oversize T-shirt and tie it up in a way that shortens the length of the tee, but does not show off your belly. Tie the t-shirt low on the waist and match it with a high rise pants to cover the parts you do not want to expose too much.

2. Paired with leggings

If you have no idea how to wear an oversize T-shirt here is a great example to follow – match it with a pair of leggings. All the flaws of an oversize tee suddenly become its main advantages: long t-shirt helps you cover your hips and butt, which usually seem larger when you put on a pair of tight leggings. Loose shirt as a top helps you balance the fitted shape of tight leggings, creating a nice shape for your body and accentuating your long legs. Oversize t-shirt with an oversize blouse and leggings is the hottest trend in street fashion this cold season.

3. Tucked in or belted

By simply tucking your oversize t-shirt in pants or skirt you can completely change its shape, highlighting your beautiful shapes. To add more sophistication to your outfit tuck it unevenly: leave a portion of the T-shirt hanging in the back or tuck only small part in the front. In a similar way you can use a belt to add more shape to your oversize tee – use the belt to accentuate the waist or keep it low and loose to allow more relaxed shape of the T-shirt.

4. Worn off the shoulder

If your outfits are often inspired by the 80s here is a simple trick you can use: choose an oversize T-shirt with a low neckline and a slogan or a print in the front and wear it off the shoulder. You can also cut out the neckline to adjust it, so it is easier to wear it off one shoulder.

5. Paired with a vest

Vest seems to be such an underrated garment, while there are so many ways to use it in your outfits and make them so much more unique. Denim vest paired with a tee makes the whole outfit look young and fresh. Leather vest adds sophistication and creates unexpected, rock music inspired look.

6. Styled like menswear

This season androgynous style is totally in vogue, so why not follow the trend and complete your outfit with elements of menswear? You can even try a men’s T-shirt, paired with a jacket and a pair of jeans. Boyfriend shoes so popular this season provide the perfect finish to your androgynous look.

7. Used to style down the outfit

Plain T-shirt is like white canvas. It brings back balance to the most over the top glamour outfits. If you are planning to wear a glitzy jacket or pants paired with statement jewelry you need that one piece, which will create a harmonious look and enhance the quality of your clothes without too much exaggeration. Try a white tee to see how great it looks in such a refined company.

These seven tips for styling do not embrace all options you have and sometimes it is all about the accessories you use to finish the outfit that suddenly make your T-shirt look so much more interesting. If you are looking for a designer T-shirt with unique prints check a designer online store. You can also choose few from the myriads of accessories offered by the stores to find the ones, which go well with your tee. Experiment and innovate, after all you can’t go wrong with something so simple as a T-shirt!

You may not stop to think too much about it, but almost every T-shirt design that has been popular over the past few decades is either born from popular culture or inspires a generation to take up a cause. For example the yellow smiley face design may seem ingrained into our subconscious, but did you know that it was designed in about 10 minutes in the early 1960’s by Harvey Ball for the State Mutual Life Assurance company of Worcester, Massachusetts? Although originally meant to cheer up employees, years later the face was slapped on products everywhere and turned into a fad that made $50 million in sales in a year and a half. Nowadays, we see versions of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” slogan on T-shirts as people adjust the words to fit a certain message. However, by using the same design, layout and fonts these shirts instantly remind us of the original.

Funky Ways To Recycle T Shirts

angela-johnson-recycled-t-shirt-7

T shirts are quite popular amongst both men and women of all ages. They too can get old and outdated like other garments but there are always some tricks and tips to make them new and used again. Here are a few of them.

Cutting the Sleeves Off

Sleeves can be cut off from shoulders length or from the middle of the sleeves to make them new again, furthermore, in case summers have arrived, this cutting of sleeves can make them suitable summer wear.

Turning Shirts Inside Out

Another bright idea to recycle T shirts is to turn them inside out and then cutting the stitched areas and collars and cuffs with scissors. While doing so, it has to be kept in mind that maximum part of a T shirt has to remain intact. Otherwise the whole shirt will tear apart.

Spraying

There are always some cool designs to be found that can be copied in order to make identical designs on T shirts. Colored sprays are not much expensive to find in the market, sprays that are specifically oriented to color T shirts are also available in the market. These sprays can be used to first make a desirable design and then to fill it with a desirable color.

Dyeing the T Shirts

Dyeing is another very good option when it comes to customizing or recycling T shirts for reuse. If one is bored wearing a same shirt over and over again and wished to try something new; but the fabric still holds its place, then there is an option to let the shirt have its color changed to something else. This way it gets recycled to become all new with very little expense.

Adding Accessories

Almost every house has old earnings and such accessories that are there but not being used. It will not be a good idea to make a better use of them than letting them rot in the corner of a shelf. Such earnings and other simpler jewelry items can be added to the T shirt by hanging them or stitching them on it. This gives them a whole new look and they barely look like the shirt they were before.

Cutting the Shoulders Off

Women can practice this thing with their older shirts by cutting their shoulders off. This makes them fit if the shoulders would have grown tighter and also adds a style to the existing short piece. By improvising a little and cutting the shirt from one shoulder all the way to the other horizontally, a long neck shirt can be made that is yet again a fashion. Similar designs are being made to sell some very cheap custom t-shirts to people who do not know how to do this themselves.

5 Ways To Wear A Blazer

blazer5

The blazer is probably the most versatile of all the items of clothing you will ever purchase and is a wonderful staple piece of clothing to have in your wardrobe. Of course, of all blazers the navy, two button kind is the most on-trend at the moment.

We would suggest trying on a number of blazers first as not all fits are the same, even if the size suggests otherwise. This is often even the case for designers and jackets can differ within a range.

The great thing about the blazer is that it can carry you through a whole host of occasions and just has to be teamed up with an item beneath to do so. So, let’s take a look at the ways you can wear a blazer.

V-Neck Cardigans

A crew neck t-shirt and a deep V-neck cardigan and you’re away. Add a blazer on top of this outfit and you’re looking classic and stylish. It’s also quite warm and also affordable and so there’s no excuse not to add it to your wardrobe.

Plaid Shirts

The plaid shirt has been round for season after season now and gives the blazer a modern look and a contemporary fit. Adding a little colour underneath is also good and looks great against the strong navy blazer. Of course, you can also use a white button down short for more formal occasions.

Thick Knits

The thick knit is such a practical and useful piece of clothing and also looks attractive. Retro shawl collars and cable knits are big at the moment and can really work well with the blazer. Use an interesting pattern to really make things more interesting, but not too out there. It’s ideal for colder climates or offices.

Printed T-Shirts

The classic mix and match, teaming a blazer with a printed t-shirt is quite a cool style trick that manages to wonderfully combine the formal with the casual. You can even manage to perform your own t-shirt printing quite easily.  It adds a sense of the cool and is also a practical accompaniment for when things get a little cooler at night. Team it up with some denim and you’re set for a night out.

V-Neck Jumper

A fine merino knit V-neck jumper works well with the blazer and an accompanying button down shirt. It’s ideal for the office and can also take you into those Friday evening drinks too, allowing you to take a chameleon like approach.

The blazer is a wonderful addition to any wardrobe, so invest in one and you’ve bought yourself half of a new wardrobe.

T-Shirt Sayings That Shouldn’t Exist

There comes a moment, everyday, for every person, where you have to decide exactly how you are going to be viewed when you walk out into public. It was the famous Ralph Waldo Emerson who stated, “Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.” Sadly, many of the clothes worn today by an alarming number of people lack any sense what so ever.

Some believe they are being witty and funny, while others are trying to make a statement or express themselves. These things in themselves are not bad. However, just as anything else, this can be used improperly.

It was William Shakespeare who mentioned, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” If you’d take a gander at the picture, her statement is certainly brief, so she nailed that bit. But the soul of her statement should scream disgrace, yet she appears to be quite happy. I suppose there is wit to the statement, but is it really worth being heard? A better question should be is it worth saying? 

A Short List of Absurd T-Shirt Sayings

-       I am the person your mom should have warned you about.

-       I’m not sure what it is that makes you dumb, but it’s working.

-       Smile, it is the second greatest thing your lips can do.

-       Never kick a man unless he is down.

-       I am not as dumb as you look.

-       I’m with stupid.

-       Your boyfriend thinks I’m hot.

-       Life’s too short to be with ugly women.

-       I don’t need Edukashun

Why… Just Why

Why are these saying necessary? They only accomplish but a few goals, none of which are in the favor of the wearer. They scream for attention, insult random people, and generally do nothing but exhibit a person’s ignorance, indolence, and boastful nature. How is that a good idea in a persons mind when getting dressed? The first thought on my mind in the morning is precisely how I am going to upset the greatest amount of people. Otherwise my day simply wouldn’t be complete. 

I would argue that most people wear such shirts because they have things in themselves of which to not be proud of. Calling random people stupid only proves how obtuse you truly are. Making fun of others outward appearance only shows how ugly you are inside. Boasting how beautiful you are only proves how unattractive you believe yourself to be.

These sayings do not accomplish the wanted result in my mind. They lack humor, wit, and intelligence while casting upon the user nothing more than an image of simply being a terrible person. Though, this thought must be lost upon the users as these types of shirts are frequently worn. These shirts are almost a brand in itself. People who wear them must be a part of a certain club, and it was one I was happily not invited to.

Conclusion

In the end, I would call those that wear such shirts half-wits, but that would be half a compliment. It would also being playing into their game of indiscriminate slander and insult. Which, based on this piece, I obviously do not endorse.

The whole point here is that if you are going to make a statement, make it a worthwhile one. Your dress dictates how people view you, if you dress like a fool, well then you’ll be treated as such. When you travel around in your hometown, your reputation is based on their knowledge of you. But when in a foreign area, first impressions are the lasting ones. A person’s attire is the only indicator strangers have to go by, and considering most people we encounter have never been met before, you are going to be judged on how you look.

Now there will those that say they don’t care what other people think. My question then is why would they care what you think? Are they forcing their idiotic thoughts onto you such as you are to them? Why is it even worth telling someone something if their opinions didn’t matter. A good motto to go by is to dress as smart as you are. Not dress as dumb as you believe others to be.

Wear Your Taste in Music on Your Sleeve: Rock Shirts and Concert Shirts

 

Author: Jack Bandy

“You can’t arrest me – I’m a rock star.” “Punk is not dead.” These are just some of the witty statements depicted in rock shirts that you can buy online. Aside from the bold statements, you can also choose ones which are printed with the image of your favorite band. Such music or concert shirts are usually sold as souvenir items during musical events. If you are planning to attend a musical act or if you simply want to show support for your favorite band, why not wear these shirts and literally wear your taste in music on your sleeve?

Tips for Buying Rock Shirts & Concert Shirts

When updating your wardrobe, one of the most fun things to do is shop for your casual clothes. Unlike formal clothes which have a few rules otherwise you won’t fit into a particular event that you are attending, shopping for casual clothes is an anything-goes experience. Basically, you can wear anything that you want which reflects your personality.

If you work as the assistant to a chef in the kitchen and you’re wearing that all-white uniform eight hours a day – you might want to take a break from it by wearing rock shirts of concert shirts. These clothes will give people an idea about what your taste in music and what your personality is, so it’s really a fun experience that you should not miss out on.

Now, here are a few tips that you should keep in mind when buying rock shirts, concert shirts and other statement shirts:

Go online or visit shops which specialize in selling music-themed shirts.
When you attend a musical act, there would usually be a booth where you can buy concert shirts and rock shirts. These can serve as a souvenir item for the event, and can be worn during any casual outings. On the other hand, if there’s a particular musical genre which you cannot find shirts for, go online. There are many Internet shops which specialize in selling rocks shirts and concert shirts. Here, you can easily find the hard-to-look for shirts for bands who may not be globally known but still have a huge influence in your life. If you’re into punk rock, for instance, you can find band shirts for Bad Religion, The Boys, Sex Pistols, the Misfits, the Clash, Blondie, Ramones, Fugazi, Green Day, Bad Brains, etc.

• Check on the print and the material that the shirt is made of.
Aside from the image of the shirt, you should also check on the material that it is made of. Check whether the print can be ironed or not. Make sure that the material can withstand numerous washings so that you can wear the shirt repeatedly.

• Pair the shirts with the right accessories.
Finally, pair those rocks shirts and concert shirts with the right accessories. Wear them with attitude and you can have a blast telling people about your taste in music with just one glance at your fashion statement!

When going to a rock concert, there’s no better souvenir to bring home than rock shirts or concert shirts. You can wear these when going for a day about town, while showing your support for the band and the kind of music that you like as well.

Is Your Daughter Too Pretty To Do Homework?

If you said “Yes”, too late and shame on you! JC Penney pulled this shirt from their inventory because of consumer complaints that it was inappropriate and sexist. I definitely think it sends the wrong message to young girls. Lord knows too many of them already think their $h!t don’t stink, so the message this shirt send is definitely negative. Furthermore, when a young girl or woman is “pretty” she needs to be twice as smart to be taken seriously. Click the shirt for more details and national news coverage.
