You’ve gotta love the all over print look on tees. All over shirts are to basic tees as Superman ice cream is to vanilla bean – a colorful twist on a classic. And if you style an all over print right, you not only have a great outfit on your hands; you’ve also boosted your street style game into Instagram-worthy territory. From pairing with neutral pants and backdrops to dressing the look up, there are a few lifehacks to use when it comes to styling sublimated tees and tanks. Here are a few tips on how to style your all over tops into fresh looks.
. . .
Pair with neutrals and accessorize with basics
When it comes to accessorizing all over prints, basics are anything but basic. All over tees and tanks stand out – why take away from them visually? When you’re choosing the rest of your outfit (or when you’re choosing a prime background to snap a pic in front of), pair your all over shirt with neutral colors to really make it pop.
Pair an all over black and white print with a grey or black pant. Or, if it’s a more colorful shirt, mix it up with a neutral denim. The same goes for accessories. If you’re wearing a black and white all over print, pairing with a boldly colored plain accessory like a beanie, snapback, or dad hat makes for a solid combo.
Oversize your tees
No need to conform to form-fitting tees. Instead, try buying your tees a little oversized and styling them that way. Ladies, try sizing up or, even better, buying a men’s tee size. The longer tee sleeves are perfect for rolling up. This remix on a classic look is a great way to mix up your street style. Then snap a pic and voila: you’ve set a new fashion standard for all of your followers.
Match it up
Maybe you’re not a pair-with-neutrals kinda person. You’ve got a colorful personality that simply cannot be contained in one part of an outfit. If you’ve got a super colorful design to rock, try finding a backdrop that ties into a few of the colors you’re sporting in your threads!
The same goes for shoes! Check out how this Instagrammer snapped a pic of their Bucketfeet against a colorful mural filled with colors that tie into the shoe design. This is a great way to add visual interest to an image.
Dress it up
We may be a little biased here at Threadless because, spoiler alert, we like tees. We love tees, in fact. And we say it’s time to bury the idea that a tee or tank can’t be turned into a professional look. Bury it, I say! Try pairing your all over top with a neutral, casual blazer or a nice pant (and ladies, try tucking it in) for a fun-yet-professional look.
