T-Shirts: The Swiss Army Knife of Fashion
It’s official. T-shirts are appropriate for any occasion. With the right pieces, the basic tee can be the most versatile option in your wardrobe. Just ask Steven Yeun, who wore a basic white t-shirt to the premiere of “Crazy Rich Asians”, or fashion icon Jerry Lorenzo, founder of streetwear label Fear Of God, whose products can be seen on celebrities like Justin Bieber and David Beckham. Needless to say, there are many different styles and fits when it comes to T-shirts. Here are our recommendations:
Basics: You can never go wrong with a plain white tee. A timeless classic that never goes out of style, pair it with jeans for the rock star vibes, à la Adam Levine. Throw on a leather jacket or sports jacket to add a bit of pizzazz.
Graphic: Graphic t-shirts can add a whole new dimension to your look. From provocative designs by FR2 (Fxxking Rabbits) to the brainchild of Edison Chen, CLOT, the options are truly endless. Our pick would be the latest venture from streetwear fashion magnate Nigo with graphic designer Shinichiro Nakamura (Sk8thing), Human Made. If you are a fan of BAPE, you’ll be a fan of Human Made.
Going Vintage: There are many reasons why we still look to the past for inspiration. At least in recent years, going backwards has been the way forward for the fashion industry. There are many ways to rock the look, and your favourite vintage band tee will definitely up your cool factor.
Active Sportswear: Don’t be afraid to support your favourite baseball/football/NBA team. Just make sure you don’t overboard by wearing the matching bottoms with your jersey. And besides, sportswear will always be comfy and light for the sunny weather.
Striped Tees: Works exactly like your basic tee, with just a little bit more flavour. The striped tee is a basic essential piece that you need to have in your wardrobe. Comme des Garçons PLAY striped tees have the right amount of playfulness to make your ensemble more interesting.
