T shirt types you’ll never tire of!
Every girl has a zillion of these in her closet! She’s probably bought one because it was on sale, or maybe she liked the colour or better still, she wanted to twin with her BFF. Yes, we’re talking about t shirts. You know, all those different types of t shirts which are just sitting in a huuuge pile in your cupboard. The same pile where you have all the t shirt colors possible. Here’s the thing – when you think about dressing up, a t-shirt is probably the last thing that comes to your mind. And when you end up going out, you see some girl wearing a basic tee with jeans and you think about how great she looks. Well, we’re here to tell you all about the different occasions where you can rock a Funky T-shirt. And not just pull it off, but rock it enough to post a picture on Instagram!
Structure of a t-shirt isn’t going to change, however, there are 6 types of necklines which differentiate t-shirts from each other.
- The most common neckline is the crew neck, you know the most basic t-shirt that exists.
- Then we have the V-necks (which makes every girl’s collar bones look flawless), which are divided into the basic V neck and the deep V-necks.
- Then comes the bateau neckline, which is basically a boat neckline – you know the kind that runs from shoulder to shoulder without showing too much skin.
Now that we have the basics covered, let’s really break down the different types of necklines and collars.
- Apart from the basic work collar ie the straight collar,
- there is a really cute and girly collar known as the Peter Pan collar.
- Then there is the mandarin collar, Chinese inspired collars, which looks great at formal, semi-formal and even casual occasions.
- Even the Jabot collars, which are basically collars which have a lot of ruffles and/or bows, can make quite a statement look for work and pleasure alike. You’ve got the point, so let’s end this collar list at that.
- Lastly, we have the most worn during winter t-shirt style ie the high neck!
Different types of shirts you could wear for every occasion
Classic round neck t shirt for casual wear
The round neck t-shirt is probably every girl’s go –to outfit when she needs to look casual! With all the pretty pastel t shirt colors for summer hitting the stores, these are the best things to ‘invest in’. Why? You can pair these types of t shirts with jeans, shorts, skirts, palazzo’s, jeggings and so much more. And, if something so versatile isn’t an investment, then what it? Or you can even wear a really funky slogan t-shirt, something like ‘Fight like a girl’ or ‘I’d rather be sleeping’ – whatever suits your personality.
Our pick: The hottest t shirt colour combination: A black t-shirt paired with denim shorts or jeans.
Plunge neck for dates
Plunge neck t-shirts make a great look for a date because they scream casual yet sexy. It’s like giving out a ‘I woke up like this vibe’, and boy oh boy do boys love that! Choose something like a grey or black t shirt color design which you can team up with jeggings or a skirt, depending on where your date is. You could pair your plunging t-shirt with a pencil skirt and heels if you’re going somewhere fancy. If it’s just a casual date you could wear the t-shirt with ripped jeans. “My eyes are up here boy”.. we just hope you don’t need to say that too often.
Our pick: A plunging V neck tucked into a fitted skirt.
V neck for a day out
Show off your collar bones with a cute V neck t-shirt when you’re out during the day. Considering that the temperatures are going to rise really quickly, white v neck t shirt outfits look easy breezy and very summery! If you’re a clumsy kind of girl who might spill something on her white t-shirt or this white t-shirt style just isn’t you, choose a pastel colour such as baby pink, a light sea blue or 2018’s favorite t shirt colour olive green. If you’ve been blessed with a flat tummy, you can even tie the t-shirt up on the side and show off that waist!
Our pick: A v neck with a pair of floral shorts or striped palazzo’s to look chic and casual.
Cold shoulder for brunch
Cold shoulders were the biggest trend in 2017, and this new t shirt style is here to stay. Fashion has gone from what is sleeve (reads that in an Italian accent) to keep the sleeves and lose the shoulders! Cold shoulders look great with skirts, jeans or palazzos. If you’re showing off some skin on top, it’s always classier to keep your legs covered. And since it’s brunch, don’t forget your sunnies!
Our pick: A cold shoulder t-shirt paired with palazzos or ripped white jeans – depending on your style statement.
Collared t shirt for athletic wear
It’s always good to be covered while you workout because you want to let all that sweat out. Also, you don’t want your breasts jiggling! Forget most popular t shirt colors at the gym, the mandarin collar styled gym t-shirts are what most women are wearing these days. If that's not your style, you could even wear a simple polo collar t-shirt with track pants for your workout.
Our pick: The zip up semi collared gym t-shirt with joggers.
High neck for a stroll in the park
A high neck t-shirt looks great on every body type because it has a sort of slimming effect on the waist. Earlier high necks were only limited to the basic half and full sleeves, but now you can experiment with sleeve types. A high neck t-shirt looks great for a walk in the park, a stroll in your neighborhood or even for a grocery run. Pair it with joggers or jeggings, to give it an edgy vibe.
Our pick: One of our favourite high-neck, color t shirts paired with joggers..
Basic white tee for college
The most casually chic outfit – the white t shirt style. Looking good in college is important, but so is catching up on sleep! You can opt for a plain white tee or a slogan white tee depending on your mood, and pair it with plazzos or striped pants for a chic look. If you want to go for a classic look, then pair with jeans and white sneakers – don’t forget your aviators.
Our pick: A basic white t-shirt with skinny jeans.
