The way you dress says a lot about your personality, so why wouldn’t you want a more personalized wardrobe? There’s nothing stranger than walking past someone in the street who has the same jacket on as you – and even worse if they have matching sneakers.
So, here’s a guide on how to find the perfect t-shirt that will make the morning clothes choice routine a moment to look forward to.
Browse print shops
First and foremost, your best bet is to browse shops dedicated to unique prints. US-based Dzeetee, for example, currently has 361 high-quality animal design shirts and jumpers. Bear in mind that these are mostly customizable in terms of color, too.
Animal lovers can have a field day browsing the great illustrations and catchy captions. Of course, this is just one example – yoga lovers will find the same opportunity to pick out something that speaks to them. The idea is to find something that makes you feels as though it was made especially for you.
This is one of the cheaper options for printed t-shirts that still maintain high quality. If you’re looking to spend a little extra on something even more personal, then consider custom print stores. Here you can submit your own designs, images, and text, producing bespoke shirts for reasonable prices. Just be careful around the quality – many custom print shops will print your designs on very cheap material and the prints may wear off quickly.
Thrift stores are a great resource because they often have a large range of styles in a very small space. You can find high-quality shirts for extremely cheap, which may be your only option if money is tight – it’s also great for the environment. Even if money is no issue, you can find some retro, older styles here that you otherwise cannot see in shops, with greater scope for finding that perfect t-shirt.
It’s important that before you purchase anything, you consider which colors will fit with the rest of your wardrobe. It’s not good to have every piece of clothing items a random, starkly different color, as it will be difficult to match it with other stuff.
For example, if you enjoy muted color tones then make sure to plan your next purchase as part of the bigger picture – even if your current wardrobe isn’t coordinated. Begin to slowly replace the items that don’t fit the style on a one-in, one-out basis.
Finally, having the perfect t-shirt absolutely requires the perfect fitting. This is often something overlooked with many of us not having stringent enough standards for fitting. To start with, you will want to measure your torso and neck and compare your size to the model’s size that’s showcasing the t-shirt.
If you get a chance to try on the shirt, it shouldn’t be too loose around your chest, the shoulders should tuck perfectly into the shoulder seams, and it should fall just an inch or two below the belt. Different brands have different interpretations when it comes to size. Particularly if you are a unique body shape, you can find brands that cater for a muscular build if this is something that you struggle with in regular off the rack t-shirts. But most brands cater for a all just make sure you get your measurements right!
