How to Choose Your Perfect T-Shirt

Whitney Striker shares smart tips on the art of choosing the perfect t-shirt for your coloring and style. My Tshirt prints.

It might not seem that complicated to pick out a great t-shirt, but there are some tips that you can follow to make sure your t-shirt is exactly the right color and style to fit your complexion and personal taste. Using the guidelines below, choose the color and style that will flatter your skin, make your eyes pop and flaunt your style.

Choose your colors

An artist and teacher at the Bauhaus School developed a system to show what colors go best with various skin tones. He based this system off of colors he found in the seasons of nature. Your coloring, he argues, can be divided into spring, autumn, summer or winter, and the colors that go in that season are those that work best for you.

Discover your season, and you can find the most flattering colors to wear:

Spring

If your coloring is like spring, you have golden tones in your skin and so you can tan. Your hair is often blonde, light brown or red. Your colors are those that belong with spring: light pastels, peaches, periwinkles and light yellows and greens. If you want to wear a neutral color, opt for ivory instead of white.

Summer

Summer skin is medium rose-beige and hair in this category can be anything from the lightest blond to dark brown. If your coloring is more akin to summer, your greens are darker than spring’s. Deep blues and greens work best for summers. Make sure to avoid oranges and gelds which are not complimentary. Choose a cream color instead of white.

Autumn

Autumn skin looks pale but it has warm undertones and hair is reddish and dark. If you fit in this category, wear rich colors such as dark reds, greens and oranges. Your white is a grey-brown white a little darker than cream.

Winter

Winter skin is pale and winter hair is dark. If you fit into this category, you look great in colors that are very light, even lighter than pastel. Also, blue undertones look the most striking on you. You are the only category that can wear stark white.

Choose Your Style:

Screen Printing

Screen Printing is not expensive and it’s super flexible. You can transfer any image right onto the shirt. Choose your friend’s artwork, your favorite band’s logo, or your own doodles to get a fresh look.

Embroidery

Embroidery is more expensive than screen printing because it takes more work. Embroidering your shirt can give the effect of a high-end touch.

Direct Garment Printing

Direct Garment Printing uses an inkjet printer to place a printed design directly on the t-shirt. It’s like screen printing, but the technology allow for more colors and options than screen printing.

You might not have realized that a couple of simple but informed decisions could make the difference in how complimentary your t-shirt is for you. Choose your color and style and find an inexpensive way to look and feel amazing.
