Some of my favorite t-shirts
What about making that black t-shirt work for you rather than against you? Just because you're _______ (insert subculture label here) doesn't mean you need to look like an angsty teenager who bought that black t-shirt with their allowance at Hot Topic. Think outside the t-shirt/jeans/hoodie box and make that t-shirt look chic! I'm not telling you to grow up (I'm not throwing out my Cure t-shirts any time soon), I'm just suggesting to look at t-shirts differently.
Just a few suggestions on styling
Some other things to consider when wearing a t-shirt:
-If the graphic on the shirt gets stretch out and distorted in the breast area, it's not only too small, it's umm, distracting. It's also doing a disservice to your figure and drawing attention to your boob's rather than your pretty face. On the opposite side, wearing over-sized t-shirt's will in fact make you look larger than what you really are!
-Think about what the t-shirt means and says about YOU. If there are band lyrics with lots of expletives and you're going grocery shopping, maybe you should save that one for a concert or a club.
-Materials with stretch are comfy, but they can also be extremely clingy and unflattering. If you want to hide your imperfections in the stomach and hips area, tight baby doll t-shirts are not your friend.
Now I'm not on a crusade to say "down with black t-shirts", I just think as a whole we are way too relaxed with fashion and thus become lazy and reach for our t-shirts. In fact, I often do not wear graphic t-shirts because I think they make my 'taco tummy' look more pronounced with my skinny jeans. I don't want to make my flaws more apparent for all to see, thank-you-very much, so I use clothing to my advantage and camouflage it! Make clothing work for you, not against you.
What are your opinion's on my black t-shirt debate?
