T-shirts are back in a big way this summer. Shop the hottest cropped-sleeve offerings for the new season and make a statement with your top...
T-shirts are no longer just a layering option; this summer’s styles are all about making a statement. Yes, 2014’s favourite stand-alone separate can be both casual and dressy – and we couldn’t be more excited.
The designers are championing slogan prints for SS14, with a romantic theme running throughout. Classic white T-shirts and boldly printed black fashion proverbs are this season’s must-have. Team these simple designs with floaty separates, or layer over spring maxis for super-cool styling.
Flirty florals are the perfect motif for a traditionally tomboy shirt style, with designers like Christopher Kane and Preen giving T-shirts a soft, feminine edge. Meanwhile, with Être Cécile and DKNY favouring high performance fabrics, perforated panels and racer stripes, T-shirts maintain some of their classic sporty styling for SS14.
