Yes, most people may see a t-shirt as a simple “shirt” but there is actually a science behind it. Little do people know that there are certain things that you need to consider before getting one yourself.
First, you need to consider who you really are as in individual. It’s just simple: be yourself and stay true to it. If you want to wear a shirt that has “Super Mario” printed on it then do it. What’s really going to make a difference is the way your t shirt is done and how you wear it. T- shirts are timeless, might as well get ones that you like the most.
Check the t- shirt’s neckline. Yes, that simple neckline can make a whole difference between looking hot and looking like a little too overweight. Wearing a v-neck shirt can create an illusion that you what you have inside that shirt are well- toned muscles instead of fat.
Choose the right color for your skin and body type. I may have a dark or warm skin tone but I always have one plain black shirt ready for emergency. It’s like LBD (Little Black Dress) for women. Black or any dark colored t- shirts can also create an illusion that you are slimmer than you really are. But make sure that you pair it with the right pair of pants to make your look much more cohesive.
Use the power of stripes. This can be very beneficial for women since lines can accentuate the women’s assets. Horizontal lines can accentuate their curves while vertical lines can make them look taller. The same thing goes with men. Men on the heavier side should consider wearing vertical lines instead of horizontal lines to make their body look taller and leaner.
Make sure that it fits perfectly. Make sure that the distance between the sleeves and the collar meets the end point of your shoulder. If its a little to over your shoulders, then that means that the t-shirt might look a little too big for you.
These are some of the things that I usually consider when picking a t-shirt. It may look simple but it’s really complicated (just kidding). Just have fun with it and don’t make things that much complicated. After all, it’s just a t-shirt.
