Summers are the perfect season to wear those graphic t-shirts you have saved in your closet. T-shirts are one of the popular clothing pieces thanks to their simplicity, comfort, affordability, and how breezy they tend to be during summer. They are also easier to pull off, and you can layer them with other outfits and make a serious statement, whether attending an event or strolling around. If you wish to upgrade your summer wardrobe, here are some tips to keep in mind when shopping for t-shirts.
Solid colors for the win
Although many people prefer to stick with plain colors when buying t-shirts, it doesn’t hurt to get out of the box. Putting on a solid-colored simply southern short sleeve personifies the saying that less is more. Additionally, solid colors give you unlimited options for layering the shirt to create a stunning fashion style. If you stock your closet with solid-colored shirts, you have everything you need to create different casual looks.
Choose premium fabrics
You cannot afford to ignore the fabric when shopping for T-shirts. After all, you don’t want something that fades or wrinkles up after the first wash. Cotton T-shirts are the best as they are comfortable, breathable, durable, and soft. You can simply tell the fabric by the feel or look at the tag or description if buying online. The easiest way to source great T-shirts is to find a retailer you trust and stick with them. If shopping online, read reviews so that you know what to expect.
The fit matters
One of the ways to get a well-fitting tee is to have it customized to your size. But that may not be the most affordable option. The most important thing is to know your body physique. It is advisable to wear a loose-fitting shirt if you have a skinny body. So, you should check the size to ensure it will not be tight on your body. Opting for a tight-fitting shirt will help accentuate your muscles if you have an athletic body. Most importantly, don’t forget about the fit when buying a T-shirt.
Consider the neckline
Different types of T-shirts have different necklines. While V-necks flatter elongated chests, crew necks accentuate tiny busts. A scoop neck elongates the neck suitable if you have a thinner neck. Some necklines look better on females, while others look better on males. But most importantly, consider your physique when choosing the neckline.
Stick to your budget
Have a budget when shopping for your summer T-shirts. However, do not compromise the quality and comfort. If you have a tight budget, buying a few quality pieces and stocking up more with time is best. Luckily, shirts are affordable, and you can compare prices online before purchasing.
Look at the bigger picture.
Last but not least, consider the bigger picture. Besides wearing your shirts during summer, there are many ways of styling them with different outfits for a fashionista look. Consider the clothes and accessories you will be rocking your tees with to make the best choices.
