2018 has been a big year in the world of t-shirt design and I’m sure there’s more to come! I’m here to take you on a design journey as we look at some of the big t-shirt trends of 2018 so far.
Animal print has made a huge impact in fashion this year, with wild patterns covering every garment imaginable. To be honest the high street could be mistaken for a zoo at times. Leopard print has taken centre stage as whole t-shirts have been covered with this popular print. The tiger has also made an appearance making bold and fierce prints. I think it’s safe to say cats are the theme. The deep orange, browns and blacks have given the printed tee a moody makeover in 2018.
Creative typography is an unmissable trend this year. Tee’s have been plastered with loud, brave messages in all shapes and colours. I love that a plain old t-shirt has become a canvas to speak your mind. Now we can show off our personality, style and voice without saying a word! Tee’s most definitely have a voice of their own this year and we love it!
With the rise of the unicorn trend, came the holographic craze. Colourful, glittery, iridescent designs have added a pop to our wardrobes in 2018. You can find text, logos, images… you name it, combined with holographic vinyl and print. Personally, I think it looks fab! But if you look too long your eyes do go a bit funny.
Finally, geometric tees have added some structure to the high street this year. Detailed objects have been simplified into just a few lines to create some of the most effective designs. We’ve seen clean lines, sharp edges and symmetry flying off the rails all year. I definitely think geometry is here to stay!
