Men’s t-shirts and women’s t-shirts are always popular items of clothing. As 2011 gets well under way it’s time we started looking at what we can expect from the fashion world this summer.
Manga t-shirts look set to rock summer 2011. Women’s and men’s t-shirts with Manga designs will be readily available this year throughout stores around the world and keen fashionistas will have to go Manga-crazy to keep up with the times. T-shirts may have Manga designs on the front or on the back and some may even just feature a small cartoon on the hoodies Portland sleeve. The designs can portray anything from famous Manga cartoons such as Shotaro Ishinomori , Gundam, Taiyo Matsumoto , Naruto, Golgo 13 and Ashita no Joe through to less famous cartoon pictures. The pictures are often bright colours printed onto plain coloured t-shirts and they suit anyone looking to add an edge to their style.
Women’s t-shirts with various printed slogans and pictures have been a popular choice for many years and are likely to remain so this year; the prints can include anything from funny slogans through to controversial and sexy pictures. Men’s t-shirts with printed words or pictures also look set to be a hit this summer; they are often plain with a centrally-printed message or image. However, some printed t-shirts have patterns all over with women’s t-shirts featuring repetitive imagery such as fun fruits or cute animals whilst men’s t-shirts may feature faces or humourous images.
Women’s and men’s t-shirts with illustrative images on can be found this year in all good fashion outlets. The images can be of anything funky from Koi carp fish designs through to dainty sparrows and quirky zombies. These brighten up any plain and otherwise somewhat boring t-shirts and are perfect for both men and women who enjoy playing with fashion. Usually the images are printed in the centre of the t-shirt, making it a wise choice to wash anything with a printed image on inside out – even the highest quality men’s and women’s t-shirts will deteriorate with extensive washes.
Long Sleeves vs. Short Sleeves
Summer 2011 is the year of the short sleeves although three-quarter length sleeves also look set to make a popular return. Long sleeves are kept for the winter months but as soon as summer hits short sleeve t-shirts will be readily available with all kinds of fun patterns, prints and images on. V-necks will be outdone by the more classical round-neck and collars will also be seen, although classical t-shirt shapes or short sleeves with rounded necks will be the most fashionable choice.
Funny t-shirts with edgy messages, along with t-shirts with images and humorous versions of famous brands can also be found. However, these are likely to be largely replaced with Manga t-shirts as summer 2011 looks to shake up the t-shirt world with some innovative creations.
2011 may be the year of the Rabbit, but according to the fashion houses this year is set to be the year of the t-shirt!
