What are some of the top t-shirt trends for 2013? Men’s t-shirts are particularly benefiting from some stylish variations on traditional looks this year, from printed and graphic tees through to classic plain white t-shirts and more. At the same time, it’s worth looking at some of the benefits of floral and polo t-shirts when putting together your wardrobe for the summer and autumn. Why, then, are particular styles of t-shirts worth exploring, and what are some of the top brands to check out?
A lot of variation can be achieved with printed men’s t-shirts, which can come with different branded graphics and brushed prints. Some of the more popular looks at the moment include beach and tropical scenes, as well as city graphics, and prints on white backgrounds. Montages and collages of images are also popular, as are dark grey and light silver colours. Look out for brands like Tokyo Laundry, Officers Club, and BC London or printed t-shirts this summer.
It’s hard to go wrong with a classic plain white t-shirt, which can be easily matched up to different styles and looks. White t-shirts can be worn with blue jeans and chinos, as well as with athletic jackets and other combinations. You can also wear white t-shirts with shorts, while using discreet logos to make otherwise plain shirts stand out. Remember to go for fitted, easy to wash plain white t-shirts if you want to get the most out of them.
The advantage of wearing striped t-shirts is that they give you a lot of opportunities to experiment with shapes and colours. For example, you can use striped shirts with Aztec styles to make the most of current trends, while going for narrow, multi coloured or monochrome stripes, as well as blocked stripes. Denim strikes and block prints can also be used, as can shoulder stripes in contrasting colours from the main part of a t-shirt.
Different floral prints can be worn with t-shirts to make the most of the summer and opportunities for colour mixing. Minimalist florals can be contrasted with more psychedelic colours, while floral t-shirts can work well with Hawaiian shorts and board shorts. Some of the best looks involving floral shirts involve using them discreetly through graphics and prints, rather than going for all over designs.
The polo t-shirt can be a good option if you want something a bit more formal, but still want to retain the versatility of a t-shirt. For a smart casual look, polo t-shirt without buttons, or with an open V-neck, can be an excellent way to play around with colour without being too casual. Aztec panels can also be worn with polo t-shirts, while varsity style t-shirts and shirts that use grey marl can be excellent ideas if you want to experiment with materials and cuts for your t-shirts.
