What is our number one go-to in the summer for a comfortable cool top? The t-shirt. It has always been a staple in any summer wardrobe. Especially in this heat! The great thing is that t-shirts have become such a fashion statement that there are thousands of choices now.
T-Shirts are more popular than ever. You can make up your own, wear your favorite team’s name, or display your favorite beverage. That concept has been around for a long time; now, it seems that t-shirt fashion has been expanded with more choices than we have ever seen before. They can be dressed up with skirts, vests, or a jacket for evening wear and are perfectly acceptable for a dressy occasion.
At Dallas Market, there were more styles and colors than I have ever seen. The vintage style is huge. Favorite causes, lifestyle, and individual preferences are also popularly incorporated into designs. Farm animals, flowers, and as always, the American flag and patriot tees are my favorite. We also love the quirky, humorous, and unique tees that certain designers have put out there. Pretty much all stores have t-shirts, so they are easy to find. Some of our favorites for the ladies are XOXO’s. They have great theme tees with animals, flowers, and flags. We love Cry Baby’s very vintage look. Rodeo Quincy has vintage looks and flowers with so many bold bright colors! American-made Liberty Wear adds a little fun bling or stones to many of their tees.
For the guys, we like the Dale Brisby Rodeo Time shirts and the patriotic Howitzer t-shirts. I don’t know about you, but I have more t-shirts in my wardrobe than ever before, and I love it.
