The ultimate basic piece of clothing, the T-shirt, has gone through several fashion evolutions. One of the ways that this is done is through cat shirts. No longer just reserved for feline lovers, more and more fashion-forward women are wearing their tees with jeans. They can even be paired with dressier skirts and even couture pieces.
Shirts can be the canvas for either a toned down statement outfit. In order to update the look, go for a shirt that deviates from the usual loose tee. Look for V-neck shirts for a sought-after style. One with a slightly loose silhouette oozes casual chic and feminine appeal. Another variation is to look for cat shirts that have loose necklines to allow for one side to drape over the shoulder.
Do not be constrained with male or female shirts. The ladies can slip on a cat shirt made for a male because the oversize style can be surprisingly sexy and chic. In fact, designers have caught on to this trend and now unisex and boyfriend-style shirts are readily available to women. The look can be interpreted by pairing it with soft and feminine scarf or a sleek, fitted pair of jeans. Depending on the accessories, the outfit can turn from lazy to polished, depending on the mood of the person.
Also, do not be turned off by shirts that have been around for a long time. The destroyed or distressed look is quite popular. Even worn out shirts that have been left at bottom drawers have a second lease at life. New styles and trends have made wearing these shirts acceptable, and more so, stylish. The subtly sheer materials can be quite refreshing and comfortable.
It is also a good idea to experiment with the lengths of the shirt. Ultra-long tees may be worn over leggings or skinny jeans. They may even be layered over shorter tees or cinched at the waist with a belt. The movement provided by the long tees is can be quite eye-catching. In contrast, short or baby tees can be worn with skirts or sailor pants for a classic look.
Finally, even cat shirts have not escaped the need to become more environmentally friendly. Look for shirts that are made out of organic cotton for a natural twist. Some shirts have incorporated recycled fibers or other materials in the shirt as a contribution to both style and the protection of the environment.
