T-shirts with messages like 'I was born intelligent, but education ruined me', 'If you think I'm cute then you should see my papa' and 'Single does not always mean available', are cool, quirky and are sure to make an effective style statement.
With Ranbir Kapoor sporting the Simpson and Sponge Bob T-shirt in the movie Wake Up Sid, cartoon tees have also become exceedingly popular with youngsters. So, flaunt your favourite cartoon character and do it in style. After all cartoons are not restricted to kids any more.
Colour of the season
The one liner and cartoon T-shirts look good when worn in blue, green, yellow, black, red, purple, pink or magenta. You could also go for unusual colours like orange, dark green, sky blue and turquoise blue.
What to pair it with?
T-shirts are casual, but how do you make your own style statement? Well, Ravneet Gurudatta, owner, One Hundred Degrees boutique shares, "Quirky T-shirts and the cartoon ones are suited for every occasion. Just team it up with skinny jeans, harems, capris, dhoti pants and you are perfectly ready."
Tips for girls
These tees look best when paired with jeans or pajamas. You can also pair them up with denim shorts or a skirt. Go for a black khaki or white colour cotton shorts. You can accessorise by wearing funky earring of the same colour as your tee. Dangling earrings don't go well with these T-shirts. Headgears are always head turners, so wear a nice plain head band. Carry a smart handbag.
Tips for boys
Boys dress casual most of the times. A T-shirt saying Superman can be teamed with a pair of blue denims or three-fourths. For those who love to experiment, you can sport a cartoon T-shirt with a jacket or suit and team it up with a pair of jeans.
