How to wear a t-shirt
One would not immediately think that this is a topic on which you’d need instruction. Seems pretty straightforward, right? Arm through arm-holes, head through neck-hole, proceed accordingly.
As it turns out, some of us could use a little advice on the topic. Do I go form fitting? Do I wear it cropped? Is neon yellow a good color for me? Ed Hardy; is he still cool?
In regards to the last questions, that’s a giant “NO”. The others? Not so clear-cut.
Show a little buff
Gentleman, it is absolutely the case that you should be proud of the work you’ve done in the gym. The grueling, tiresome, pain-inducing hours you’ve spent there should not be for naught. Some strategically chosen tees can assist you in the exhibition of your assets. Having said that, it needn’t be painted on. Take our fine fellow Hugh, if you will:
If anyone could lay claim to the inability to find a shirt which could amply house ones biceps, it would be the Wolverine himself. You’ll notice here though that Hugh has found the perfect amount of cotton to both show and not suffocate his fitness efforts. A nice, white, clean tee. Well done.
A little belly is still, a belly
With the re-emergence of the Crop Top(one never know how long exactly these things will stay) I feel it somewhat necessary to cover some brief yet valuable ground rules. The Crop Top continues to be everywhere this spring/summer and while you should absolutely consider this look for your wardrobe, remember that just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should.
You can tastefully show off a little midsection without going all exhibitionist with some of these great tops. Do you have the naval for it? We’ll leave that up to you, but remember that less is more. You can also pair these tops with some leggings, a skirt, or some great high-rise jeans. Get the cropped look without the exposed belly.
What do you think of these looks?
Graphic Tees; did they die out yet?
Au contraire, mon frère. Graphic tees are in fact now bigger and better (and sometimes badder) than ever. There is literally a graphic t-shirt out there with every celeb, athlete, train-wreck reality show star and hip-h0p mogul you can think of on it. Want a tee professing your love of large women? It’s out there. Want one advertising the new hoops sensation Jeremy Lin? Done. How about one with your own picture on it? I know a guy who can get that by tomorrow.
Again, we’re back to the “because I can, should I?” dilemma. Here is what I’ll say; consider your age, your place of work, the day of the week, and your significant other. These all come into play. A graphic tee does indeed add a nice little bit of edge to an outfit. A little bit of attitude.
These and others are just a few bits of advice to take into consideration when styling a new, fashionable tee into your outfit.
Or of course as some seem to do, you could take all of this advice, do the opposite, and who knows…maybe start a worldwide trend.
I doubt it though.
