T-shirts are the classic go-to pieces of clothing. They are great layered under a button-down shirt or standing alone with a cool graphic print. T-shirts are a timeless article of clothing, but even classic pieces need to be refreshed once in awhile. Enter the patterned, colored pocket T-shirt. It gives your solid colored T-shirts a twist, and a simple tweak can change an outfit.
This Fashionisto wears his patterned pocket T-shirt (here’s a similar one) with basic black jeans, leather and canvas sneakers and a watch. The orange color on the pocket complements the T-shirt color incorporating the blue within the pocket to bring it together. The striped pattern gives it that pizzazz without being too overwhelming. The pocket instantly gives this Fashionisto’s outfit new life with its subtle detail. While jeans and T-shirts go together like peanut butter and jelly, leather sneakers and a nice watch make the outfit more polished.
This outfit is comfortable and practical without sacrificing your sense of style. It is transitional for all seasons and is easy to throw on before you head to class. Add some accessories to personalize your patterned, colored T-shirt for a unique look.
Hint: While we all are college students and not willing to spend money on expensive T-shirts, you can easily make your own patterned, colored pocket T-shirt. Head to your local fabric store and find a pattern you like, then sew a small piece onto any T-shirt you own. Don’t be afraid to experiment with crazy colors and patterns. You’ll never know until you try it.
