Many people think that looking stylish and fashionable is an expensive endeavour. All that new clothing, trends and accessories surely can cost a lot!
But we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way and that even you can create some awesome and stylish looks with even the most modest budget.
One of the best ways to do that is to add a couple of pocket tees to your wardrobe.
Pockets on t-shirts
Clothing didn’t have pockets until around 500 years ago, and modern pockets became common only around mid 20th century.
Chest pockets were first adopted by sailors who needed a convenient place to keep cash and tobacco while travelling. Soon most men had at least a few shirts and t-shirts with pockets for holding miscellaneous items.
Because t-shirts were an undergarment for a long time, they didn’t have pockets, but thanks to the changes in fashion, designers started applying them to switch things up and make the humble tee more versatile.
Pocket t-shirt styles
While all pocket t-shirts may seem the same, they actually are not, and that’s why they are such a great and affordable way to spice up your style game.
The size of the pocket can vary from tiny to large and can have pointed or rounded corners. The pockets can also be made from entirely different fabrics and create a unique utilitarian look or come in a different colour and fabric and add quirkiness.
Spend some time at the mall and scouring the internet, and you’ll find all kinds of unique designs from simple, classic monochrome pockets to Hawaiian-inspired floral ones to complex applications with cute characters peeking from the pocket itself.
It’s incredible how such a small design element can change the whole look with minimum effort from your side!
How to wear a pocket tee?
Pocket tees are generally casual, so you should probably skip them if you’re wearing a suit or a classic sports jacket.
But they’re perfect for any outfit on the spectrum, from laid-back to semi-formal The best thing is that you can style it with pretty much anything you already have in your closet and save money on purchasing multiple new pieces.
