Throwing on a t-shirt as we rush to a lecture we had to be five minutes ago is something we all relate to, our parents relate to and maybe their parents as well. The question is how come the t-shirt, this loved garment has managed to be trendy all these years. The answer is simplicity. The popular saying “simplicity never goes out of style” is said in text messages all over India and is seen as the caption of millions of social media posts. Inspired by the simplicity of their late role models like Mahatma Gandhi and Abdul Kalam Azaad.
The t-shirt dates centuries back, but is still seen worn by mannequins in displays and models on large billboards. Why? The t-shirt is a simple fashion trend, easy and basic. White t shirts especially appear to be timeless. T-shirts whether plain white or graphic tees are becoming the new thing everyone wants to be seen in.
The reason for this timeless trend attributes to its affordability, for the price of one Alvaro Castagnino tie and a pair of pleated dress pants you can buy a lot of awesome t-shirts. The youth especially the male population rather spend their money on video games or save up for a car than splurge on expensive clothing .This is where t-shirts come in. They are cheap and still trendy.
Moreover t-shirts are nice to our bank accounts after we purchase them, unlike suits that need expensive monthly dry cleaning and special garment bags to store them in, you can throw your t-shirt in the wash and it will come out good as new. T-shirts make a statement, or they don’t.
The t-shirt is not just a piece of garment; they are a way of expressing ones attitude or likes or dislikes in ways both literally and figuratively. If you see your friend walk in wearing a canary yellow t-shirt displaying slogans of peace and love, it says they woke up on the right side of the bed that day, but right behind them is your other friend weary eyed, dressed in a crumpled black t-shirt it conveys the opposite.
Thus, the t-shirt can be artistic and vibrant, plain or boring, branded or vintage, funny or dull the possibilities are endless which is precisely what the youth of today wants, an equalizer that oozes individualism.
After wearing your itchy stiff uniform or coat and tie all day, the first act of relaxation is throwing on a comfy t-shirt, another major indication of why t-shirts are going to be trendy long after we are all gone, they are unbelievably comfortable! I mean seriously nothing can compare to the feeling of settling into a supple soft t-shirt after a long day with your Netflix account logged in. The comfort is what draws in most of the youth, the children as well as the adults in this fashion choice.
T-shirts are not always casual, coupled with a chic floral scarf or traditional earrings they make a new fashion statement of their own, while still being comfortable and cozy. If you see someone wearing a fan merchandise t-shirt of the band you love, let’s say one republic or a hilarious graphic t-shirt from Bewakoof saying “chal chai peetay hain” you would automatically want to start up a conversation with them. Therefore, wearing a specific t-shirt may win you a friend! T-shirts can be conversation starters further proving how t-shirts are not just clothes but much more which basically explains why they are a timeless fashion trend.
Brands play a big role in the sale of these t-shirts. They have a big influence on the style and fashion. Their job is to provide the people with comfortable yet stylish t-shirts that help people express themselves. T-shirts with quotes have a large sale and are liked and purchased buy most of the youth.
