Let’s face it; we usually think of T-shirts as the most basic thing we own, style-wise. Everyone has at least two or three T-shirts in their closet, probably more, and you don’t have to think too hard about throwing one on.
But common doesn’t have to mean basic, especially when you’re rocking streetwear, and our tricks for taking your T-shirt style to the next level are the proof.
Go Bold With Graphics
One of the reasons people think T-shirts are so boring is because their idea of wearing a T-shirt is a faded old tee they’ve owned since high school. Taking your T-shirt style game to the next level starts with taking your tee to the next level, and that starts with graphics.
You can up your color game or rep your favorite artist, show, or brand. Our men’s streetwear tees will give you a couple of ideas if you’re looking for inspo.
Layer It Up
You can dial back your T-shirt’s design without dialing back your ‘fit by going harder on the layers you put over your shirt. Throw an open jacket or a vest over your shirt to make your look more eye-catching. Or use your shirt to complete your favorite tracksuit look.
Elevate Your Kicks
When people see you in a T-shirt, they expect you to be sleeping on your whole look. But if you put a little more effort into your shoes, it tells the world your outfit means business.
Don’t wear the old sneakers you throw on to work out. Break out your black and gold Jordan 1 Retro High OGs with one of our Tecca Printed tees, or pull out your favorite pair of pumps.
Accessories are another way to shout to everyone, “Yeah, I’m wearing a T-shirt, and I look dope AF doing it.” This is the time to pull out a little more bling—gold chains, your good watch, or your favorite stud. Even throwing on a pair of shades will help elevate your look to straight badassery.
Mod Your Shirt
Ladies, don’t think for one second that wearing a T-shirt means you have to bury your beautiful body. Taking an oversized shirt and tying it will help capture your curves. Or, if you’re really ambitious, get out the scissors and turn your tee into a crop top.
If T-shirts are basic, they’re the kind of basic like a beat is basic to a song. And if you’re looking to create a look you can rock out to, Rockstar Original’s got you covered.
