When you open your closet, what are the basic clothes that you see, shirts, jeans, formals, etc., for women, we can add few more clothes like, Kurtis, dresses, jumpsuits, etc., but the basic common cloth that we all will find in our closet is the t-shirts? Be it, men or women, when it comes to comfort, we find ourselves in t-shirts. The basic reason that t-shirts are always our go-to choice, is that it is easily accessible, affordable and flexible with respect to its buyers. But as simple, this outfit seems to be, sometimes it is the most difficult one to carry.
Don’t worry! we got your back, here is an ideal blueprint to enhance your t-shirts’ collection. Here we will tell you about what type of t-shirts you can buy and also where to find them. Before we start, I must tell you that the t-shirts have come a long way. The t-shirts that we wear today is not the same as before. Also, earlier we didn’t use to get such a huge variety of and options in t-shirts.
Since every individual is different from each others, it is obvious that their choices would be different too. But how does one choose what to buy and what not? The colour, fabric, or level of comfortability that the outfit will provide them are the basic parameters. Similarly, when we talk about t-shirts there are some aspect we look at before selecting one or we can say that, these are the basis on which the t-shirts differ from each other –
– Colour(of course)
Fabric is an important aspect to look at before buying a t-shirt because, comfort is what t-shirts represent, so if one is not comfortable using it, what’s the use. Moreover, there are people who are sometimes allergic to a particular type of fabric. Hence, it is very important to buy outfits (not just t-shirts) of a fabric that suits your body type.
Style is also a very important aspect because there are a whole lot of styles of t-shirts to choose from. What looks good on you is your choice to make. And you can be sure that there is a lot to choose from. So don’t worry!
The fit of the t-shirt is very important because that, as I said comfort is what we search in tees. So, if it is not nicely fitted then you would be uncomfortable the whole time you are wearing it. Also if it fits well, you would look good.
Lastly, the most and obvious exposure is the colour of the t-shirt. We buy tees mostly when we like their colour, that’s because colour is what we and others see. For girls, colour is the most important factor because it helps them to twin it with their best friends, of course! Hence colour is a very important feature before choosing any t-shirt.
If we talk about fabric, we all know there are different types of fabrics to choose from. Lenin, cotton, polyester, etc. But do you know when it comes to style there are two major basis that differs t-shirt from each other, namely:
Talking about the neckline we have:
b) V neck t-shirts
c) Y neck t-shirts

e) Scoop neck (t-shirts having neck hanging a few inches below the collarbone)
And when it comes to sleeves, we have:
a) Raglan or full sleeves t-shirts
b) Quarter sleeves t-shirts
