A guide to styling Black T-shirts for men!
Probably one of the most underrated basics a man can ever have in his wardrobe is the black t-shirt. They can add a sleek aesthetic to your look if you play your cards right. T-shirts for men play the most essential role in their wardrobe. Black T-shirts, like white ones, are especially handy to have a collection of. They’re the epitome of ‘wardrobe staple’: the perfect base layer, an essential part of a flattering monochrome look, and one of the simplest ways to show your style.
It’s a simple piece, in essence, one that rides the constant wave of seasonal trends and always appears with its reputation intact. Because of its timeless attraction and simple design, we’re often guilty of taking it for granted and not using it to its full extent. Here’s how to make this wardrobe 101 item work as hard as any of your investment items. But first, a crash course in the classic black tee.
Types Of T-Shirts for men
The defining factor to any t-shirt, not just black t-shirts, is their neckline design. Crew necks are the most popular ones, which features a rounded neckline. The second most common type of t-shirt is the v-neck - a bit open form of the round neck. V-neck tees pair better with blazers. The most advanced pattern of t-shirts for men is the grandad neck with the button placket, best fitted to layering with denim jackets and cardigans.
Choosing The Right Black T-Shirt
Mostly black t-shirts are used as a foundation layer under cardigans and blazers as much as they are on their own for casual tasks. There’s an art to choosing the right black tee, though, if you want to spice things up.
Black Monochrome Look
There’s nothing quite as sleek as an all-black outfit. This is an amazingly easy look to pull together. Take your plain black tee, and anything else you have that’s black in your closet—joggers, jeans, jackets, shoes, a messenger bag—and match them together. There’s really no way to go wrong!
Black T-shirt with flannel on top
Especially during the winters, flannel shirts become a staple in our wardrobes. Rather than buttoning them up, let it fly open and flaunt your plain black tee underneath. This look is so effortlessly cool, and an incredibly easy and quick one to put together in a pinch!
Black T-Shirt With Suit
T-shirts these days play an essential role in the smart-casual space for men. Black t-shirts, specifically, add to this dress code but with a sleeker aesthetic. For blazer and denim combos, we recommend pairing a v-neck tee as this attracts attention to the center of the body. Those going the full suit way with blazer and trousers can opt for the rounded neck t-shirts as this gives off a real summer vibe without losing your fashionista points.
Black T-Shirt With Jacket
A black t-shirt looks best under a smart jacket. As one of the most stylish and finished looks, the black T-shirt and jacket combo can take a man from smart casual duties through to night parties. As you can see, there’s no boundary to the style of jackets or blazers as well. A denim jacket is a no brainer with black T-shirts. Just make sure the denim jacket color is different from the jeans; otherwise, you’ll pull off a double denim overkill. A suede jacket is also a more elegant way to wear the black t-shirt, but you can’t go past the bomber jacket for multi-purpose casual cool. Given the neutral tone of a black tee, you can let the jacket color, texture, and details do all the talking, super simple stuff.
Black T-Shirt With Jeans
Jeans belong in every man’s closet, and their matching with black t-shirts is anything but dull. Fitment is key to flaunting this look with skinny jeans in any color, often working the best with black t-shirts. Those who aren’t fans of form-fitting pants can choose a more regular fit with rolled cuffs matched to leather boots. This casual look is more representative of “bikers” or motorcycle styling and will give you a masculine frame. White jeans or lighter colored pants matched to black t-shirts are more for fashion lovers. It’s a look that works best during the summers.
Black T-Shirt With Shorts
Did we say summers? When the heat is really on, black t-shirts for men make the classic pairing with all types of shorts, from denim shorts to gym shorts and fitted dress shorts. Gym shorts are naturally comfortable fit to serve functionality, but if you want to add a bit more ‘fashion’ to it, wear a pair of compression pants underneath the shorts. It’s important to highlight that this look is only for gym sessions rather than a dedicated outfit to a bar. For denim shorts, regular fit or slim fit black t-shirts will work fine. As with most clothes, if you’ve got the build, don’t be afraid to show it off with a slimmer tee. Dress shorts take the whole black tee and shorts game to more fashionable heights (obviously). It’s a more elegant way to wear a black t-shirt, and we do recommend you go with a slimmer fit to make it look a little less casual.
Black T-Shirt With Joggers
Whether you like them or not, joggers have become one of the trendiest wardrobe pieces for men recently. Their tapered and fitted design means they can balance the fine line between gym wear and athleisure without looking daggy. And given their sports aesthetic and slim-cut design, it’s always best to pair it with a slim-fit black t-shirt. It’s a cleaner look, but people have championed the oversized black tee and jogger combo. The latter comes across as more street luxe fashion than athleisure, so it all depends on your preference.
