T-shirts might sound generic, but for men, they are a wardrobe staple. As such, wearing them in the proper way is essential.
But what does it mean to wear a t-shirt? Let’s take a look.
Long-Sleeve T-Shirt Classic
When the season gets colder, long-sleeved t-shirts seem to make more of an appearance. These attractive garments tend to hug the waist and extend down the forearms to the wrist.
You can wear these t-shirts in several different ways. If it’s seriously cold weather but you don’t want to put on a sweater, you can roll the sleeves all the way down. For a slightly more formal look, roll them up to the elbow and wear with smart shoes or sneakers. If you’re using a crew or wide v-neck, you can also add a necklace to the mix.
Linen T-Shirts In Style
Linen t-shirts are another option that’s in vogue right now. These add character to any look, thanks to their crumpled and unique texture. You can wear them with chinos, matching jackets, sunglasses, or whatever else you want to style yourself.
Linen t-shirts are supposed to be the centerpiece of your outfit, so don’t be afraid to show them off. Make them the main event and use everything else to draw attention to them. Don’t be afraid to let them flutter and ruffle in the wind, or hang a little more loosely around the neck and shoulders.
Cotton T-Shirts For Winter Warming
Cotton t-shirts are another great option for those who like to keep roughly the same style year-round. These funky numbers are durable and versatile, and pair with accessories from brands like Nautica.
Cotton tends to go well with various types of denim, ranging from bright white to jet black. Simply find the right color.
You can pair cotton t-shirts with pants of the same color and use shoes to add interest to your outfit and break up the monotone. You can also contrast colors, but be careful as this approach can make you look shabby.
Henley T-Shirts For The Celeb Look
If you’re into celebrity men like Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling and others, then you might want to go for a henley t-shirt. These have an open collar to make them feel more masculine.
Traditionally, the style was popular on the motoring scene. Bikers would don this type of tee for long hot days in the saddle to keep them cool and refreshed. However, their style has caught on and now practically all famous male celebrities are wearing them.
Ideally, henley t-shirts pair with gray, white, black, blue or brown denim. However, you’ll need to match the color of the tee to get the best results. As you might imagine, red and gray go well together, as do brown and black.
Striped Tees For Casual Summer Vibes
Lastly, striped tees call for careful pants selection. Always choose plain, block-colored trousers. Anything else will be too visually confusing. Don’t choose striped pants under any circumstances, unless you’re wearing a fancy dress costume.
