Why you really need a graphic t-shirt

Tom Theakstone on Thu, May 23, 19

From statement-makers to wardrobe-shakers, everybody needs a graphic t-shirt.

Graphic t-shirts are back. Well, actually they never went away. But a host of the latest designs are changing the graphic t-shirt game, and they’ll change yours too.

A spring/summer favourite, they pair effortlessly with jeans, shorts and everything in-between, and are the ideal item for the months when you can finally ditch the jacket. But we’re not talking about cheesy slogans and logos of your favourite beer brands. We’re talking about high-style, premium pieces that get attention for all the right reasons.

Here’s why you need to add one to your collection.

Simple style

Simple goes a long way. So for those times when a plain white t-shirt just won’t do, add a little pinch of style to your outfit with a simple design. These designs won’t be in your face or attract unwanted attention, but work subtly to display the branding you desire.

These are also perfect for layering, as they won’t detract from the more important parts of your outfit.

The best ones move away from the block picture graphic that’s been tried and tested, and instead deliver clean, contemporary graphics and logos for a crisp finish. Because simple never goes out of style.


It doesn’t all have to be low-key though, and we have plenty of options for those of your looking to make more of a splash with your graphic tee.

Again, you want to look for designs that are fresh and modern and move. We love the Paul Smith 3D Logo T-Shirt, which pops right off the chest without being too overpowering.

We’ve also highlighted the Love Moschino Peace T-Shirt in white. This version of the incredibly popular item tones down the logo for a slightly softer aesthetic, while still packing the punch that you’d expect from the brand.

Bursts of colour

These are the ones that will really shake up your wardrobe, adding both injections of colour and logos to your t-shirt collection. They can be simple and understated, or high-impact. The beauty here is that they allow you to breathe colour into your outfit with minimal effort.

Try the Sevora Logo T-Shirt from Napapijri for plenty of all-over colour, or the Oversized Graphic T-Shirt from Calvin Klein for a more relaxed option.

Don't forget to shop our full range of t-shirts here to find more of the latest trends from your favourite brands.
