T-shirts have been a fashion staple for decades and summer 2013 will be no exception. T-shirts are popular with men, women, children and adults largely due to their simplicity. A classic tee can be worn with virtually anything, dressed up or down, worn to the office or to the beach. Throwing on a great t-shirt can make an outfit stand out in a crowd while still allowing you to feel comfortable and relaxed. In the heat of the summer, few clothing choices make more sense than a traditional tee.
Fashion styles for this summer are shiny, bold and colorful. A great metallic sheen, as seen on the runway in the seasonal collections of Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, and Diane von Furstenberg, can easily be adapted into a relaxed tee for parties or a night out this summer. Pairing a metallic tee in a delicate fabric with leggings, denim shorts, or a classic pencil skirt can easily be transitioned from day to night with some enhanced makeup and a simple updo. Fluorescent colors, like deep purple, bright red, sunny yellow and shocking pink, also made a runway appearance. Finding metallic tees in these attractive hues will be a great way to mix summer trends.
Delicate, feminine floral prints are also hot this summer, with looks inspired by Roland Mouret and Erdem. Mixing floral prints with a great mini skirt and big shades could be a trendy way to incorporate your personal flair into summer days at the beach or summer nights at the club. 1960s-inspired fashions also made an appearance during runway shows for the coming months. To mix the two, consider ’60s-themed floral shirts by incorporating big, bold hippie flowers. You could even consider using the floral patches so widely used in the ’60s to make your own custom t-shirt. Stripes also prove to be hot this summer, as seen in Marc Jacob’s fashion show and on Oscar de la Renta’s runway. Try pairing big, bold stripes with a light-colored pant or metallic leggings for a mod look suited for a day at the mall or an evening at the club.
T-shirts of all sizes are fashionable for summer 2013. For a slimming, feminine look, wear a form-fitting t-shirt with a scoop neck to show off your figure. For an easygoing look, wear an over-sized t-shirt with a pair of leggings. For an easy custom t-shirt that enhances the overall look of over-sized styles, cut the neckline so it can be worn off the shoulder. Subtle flashes of skin are very trendy this year.
No matter the year, t-shirts will always be a fashion staple perfect for almost any occasion. To make a statement while staying comfortable, incorporate current fashion trends into your look to stay modern. There’s no fashion rule that states you can’t be cute and comfortable this summer and t-shirts are a great way to establish the perfect balance.
