How to Wear a Patterned T-Shirt
A patterned t-shirt can be a great addition to any wardrobe, however, over the years they’ve got a pretty bad rep. This was probably due to neon colours and prints (the ones we started to see in the mid 00’s). Some of those rascal t-shirts left a sour taste in our mouths and the patterned t-shirt is often written off as a result of this. The key to remember here is to opt for a t-shirt that is subtle with its pattern and not too overboard – the Converse baseball raglan is a good example and also a classic casual looking t shirt.
The Perfect Fit
T-shirts come in all different shapes and sizes and the most popular at the minute is a battle between regular and long-line. Both t-shirts can produce a good look and have their own different qualities. A long-line t-shirt is a longer sitting t-shirt that will cut around the mid-thigh. These t-shirts tend to make more of a statement and will provide a good contrast between lengths of clothes. The regular fit will sit where your belt does and will provide a more classic (and potentially more versatile) look.
