Here’s your personal guide to carry your favourite tees stylishly.
- Rules for wearing solid colours: Plain tees are easiest to pull off. Since these are solid colours, pairing right is never an issue. Wear your plain tees with the simple washed out denim in shades of blue or black, in order to look dapper.
During the winter you can pair these with a bomber jacket, jerseys or cardigans to maintain a classy yet cool look. Footwear can also be easily matched- From leather shoes to casual sneakers, everything works out pretty well here.
- Rocking a printed tee look: We have moved way ahead from the louder prints of 2000. Your tee could be carrying a message, a brand name or some graphic design but the rule here is to underplay and stay subtle.
The focus is on your look enhancement rather than the print of the t-shirt. You can pair them with your regular jeans in similar combinations like that of black – blue or white – blue to pull off a contrasting look.
- Play around with some stripes: Stripes also come under printed category only but its the geometric patterns which set them apart. As a general rule, always pair your tee shirt with a solid lower to avoid looking like an escaped con.
Also, avoid vertical stripes unless you carry a frame of a bodybuilder.
- Flatter your looks with the good old cotton tees: Best for the summer months, easy to carry and style with almost anything out there- that’s the popular cotton tee for you.
Blue jeans or black trousers, they go equally well with both.
