Fishing is an interesting activity that can either be a hobby or a profession. Hobbyists indulge in it for pleasure while professionals do to earn a living.
What to wear is not an issue for professionals because, over time, they have learned what works in different circumstances. But hobbyists or first-timers may have issues knowing the appropriate gear/apparel to equip themselves with. This shouldn’t stop anyone however because there are brands such as Fathom Offshore that stock all that you would need for any type of fishing expedition.
When Did T-Shirts Become A Fashion Statement?
Fishing Tees are T-shirts that have graphics of all things fish/fishing. There are fishing enthusiasts whose wardrobe and in fact living quarters show their greatest ‘obsession’ at first glance. They love to wear shirts with different graphics of fish, fishing gears, ocean, or related pictorials.
When we hear that someone’s wardrobe is full of Tees we at once assume that the wardrobe must be boring. But the truth of the matter is that celebs have shown that this piece of clothing can be a fashion statement. You can rock them in different ways and with different accessories.
In this article, we would give you reasons why you need to have a good number of Tees in your wardrobe. And if you are a fishing enthusiast, fishing T-shirts and shirts are also essential (especially for those fishing cruises). Additionally, we would give you tips on how to rock this clothing item.
Reasons Why Should Own A Good Number Of T-Shirts
T-shirts are very versatile clothing items that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Whether you want to look casual or semi-formal, you can always rock them in different ways.
Below are detailed reasons why you should own some Tees:
They Are Pocket- Friendly/Affordable
These clothing items are within reach for everyone unlike a full suite of clothing. Imagine having to buy a shirt, tie, and pants as against buying a pair of jeans and a T-shirt? There is no basis for comparison! The cost of a pair of pants, shirt, and tie would buy at least 4 Tees (unless you’re gunning for the high-end designer stuff).
They Make Everyone Look Equal
In recent times, T-shirts have become a standard work cloth for many offices. This is because it has been discovered to be a great equalizer; reducing the pressure of assembling a corporate wardrobe. To find out more about the effect of casual dressing in the workplace, check out this article.
Similarly, event planners and organizers who want people to feel relaxed in their events make Tees the dress code for the events. The reason for this is not farfetched. Imagine having an event in which you want people from different social strata to participate. Having everyone wear a T-shirt would eliminate the possibility of anyone showing up others with their dressing.
This in turn would make everyone feel comfortable and you can achieve your aim for your events.
They Are Versatile
Although this piece of clothing is a great equalizer, it can also be individualized. If you have a brand event, the shirts can bear the logo of the brand and other messaging about it. On the other hand, it can be tees of different styles for another occasion.
You can have a plain T-shirt or one with different graphics; some people like tight-fitting tops while others like loose-fitting ones. Similarly, they can be worn with different accessories.
They Are Comfortable
This should have actually been the first point because who is ever stressed out by wearing a Tee? But can we say the same about a shirt and tie? Every one of us has seen whether in real life or in the movies, a stressed-out executive tearing off their tie in exasperation. Or similarly, loosening the tie to feel more relaxed?
Have you ever seen anyone wearing a T-shirt pulling it off because they were stressed or tired? Of course not! And that’s because they are so comfy (especially when you buy the ones made with top -quality breathable material).
They Create Bonds
Imagine walking into a gathering wearing a fishing T-shirt and you spot another person wearing a similar top. That breaks the ice and creates a bond between both of you; this is especially if you didn’t know anyone in that gathering.
Different Ways Of Styling A T-Shirt
There are many ways styling your Tees and they include the following:-
Pair It With Jeans
This is one of the most common and popular ways that people rock their tees. But the truth of the matter is that you can still add some pizzazz to this mode with accessories. You can also tie the hemline to one end and fold up the sleeves.
Conversely, you can dress up the Tee and Jeans by adding a jeans jacket and a lovely pair of heels.
Go For The Casual Look
This is apt for fishing trips or summer hangouts with friends and family. The most common pairing for casuals is with a cut-off or shorts. But you can still look cute and classy even in your casualness. Check out this video for some inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaiLxBDYJAk
Pair With A Skirt
While this may sound boring, there are actually many ways you can make a tee look good with a skirt. You can pair it with a midi skirt with leopard patterns. This gives you a neutral base on which you can place any color of the top. Then you accessorize with an eye-catching shoe and a belt bag.
Whether you love plain T-shirts or the ones that depict your hobbies, they are great additions to any wardrobe. They are versatile, affordable, and very comfortable.
One rule of thumb about wearing Tees is making sure that you are comfortable in them and knowing that they depict your individuality.
