4 Ways to Wear Vintage-Style Tees

I love a good vintage style tee! They speak to my already vintage-loving soul. Whether it be a favorite movie, vintage brand or music, vintage-style tees make me happy. I love that you can really wear them any way that you want and for any event. I’m so excited to share four ways that I style mine! If you’re looking to find some, here are some of my favorite places to snag them.

Naturally, the easiest way to style a good tee is with jeans and some sneakers. I prefer my chucks because they have their own little vintage vibe, but any type will do. Occasionally I’ll throw on my Airwalks for a full 90s effect! Throw on a zip-up hoodie, military jacket or a cardigan and your casual look is complete.

Slip-On Chucks – Journeys

Burgandy Cardigan – Old Navy

For a little dressier look you can style your tee in two different ways. If I’m going to be on my feet a lot and it’s not a super dressy I’ll throw on a pencil skirt. I love black because it goes with anything, but pattern mixing can be fun here or using a bright color depending on what is going on with your shirt. You can wear your cardigan, or a jean jacket here if you want to lean into that vintage look. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but I kinda want to own a jean jacket again. Another option for this look is to ditch the sneakers and wear some heels with this look. Dresses it up again, but still keeps it casual.

Drressing up that Vintage-Inspired band tee is probably one of my favorite ways to style it. And leopard print skirts are a trend that I am all about right now! They can be dressed up or worn casually, giving a little rocker chic look for you. love this one because of its faux- wrap around style with that nice slit. I threw on a cardigan because I love a good cardigan with just about anything, but this look doesn’t need one and you could easily leave that off and cuff up the sleeves on the shirt. As a side note, these shoes from Target are some of my new favorites. They have a bigger block heel which makes them a tad more comfortable and easier to walk around in then if it were a slimmer heel.

Skirt – Forever 21+

Lastly, for this look, I did sort of an in-between type style – a little casual, a little dressy and a lot rocker chic! I threw this look together for a concert I recently went to. I wanted to dress up my look but it wasn’t really the place for heels. I paired my band tee (because we went to see Beginnings which is an amazing Chicago cover band) and paired it with a simple black skirt, my burgundy chucks, and my military jacket. Perfect outfit and totally comfortable. You can’t go wrong with a stretchy black pencil skirt. Its a staple item to have in your closet.

90s Feels and Vintage Tees

I’m a child of the 80s, but the 90s were my jam! Give me a good t-shirt and jeans and I’m a happy girl. I’ve sort of gotten my tshirt addiction under control, but who am I kidding I have a lot! Some of my favorites are my vintage tees, my band shirts and the vintage-inspired t-shirts. Honestly, they just make me wanna crank up some Bush and sing at the top of my lungs! So where do I find my tshirts?

Best Places to Find Vintage T-Shirts?

Well, whenever I’m in the mood for a vintage tshirt there are a couple of places that I know I can walk right into and find something. Most importantly I can find something in my size!

  1. Old Navy – They usually have something on their shelves that can satisfy my old soul – but if they don’t they’ve probably got a good sassy saying somewhere that will make me just as happy. Not my go-to, but keep your eyes open! What you can find there is this awesome retro, military-inspired jacket! It’s my favorite and I probably wear it too much!
  2. Torrid – For all my curvy ladies you KNOW Torrid has you covered! Whether you need a Disney shirt for you next trip, a sarcastic saying or a retro t-shirt they’ve got it. I snagged my Back to the Future shirt there. Their tshirts are always so soft and I can count on their sizing. I’m a size 16/18 and I order a size 2 for that perfect tshirt-type fit. I can’t find it in stock, but I’m also here for this Bowie shirt!!!
  3. WalMart – WalMart is another hit and miss, but I can usually find something in the men’s section. I snagged the zip up hoodie I’m wearing below at WalMart though. It complements my 90s vibe. I’m all about the jacket with the hooded sweatshirt under it. You can snag this in stores!
  4. Target – 100% of the time I know I can count on Target for a fun vintage-inspired tee. I can snag these in the men’s section and grab an XL and have it fit perfectly! Their shirts are also always so comfortable and not too tight around the neck, which is a huge nightmare for a girl wearing a dude’s shirt. I recently grabbed a Fender shirt and this awesome Sandlot shirt (which is one of my favorite Baseball movies ever!).
  5. Etsy – Etsy will always come through for you because creatives be creating! And you can also find some real vintage stuff!
  6. Ebay – Always a good bet for vintage shirts, band and concert tees and vintage-inspired shirts that are hard to find. Bidding stresses me out, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
  7. 6DollarTees – Random find when I was searching for stuff on the internet. Glad I ran across this place because they have some of the coolest tshirts!
  8. UPDATE AND NEW ADDITION TO LIST BoxLunch – I discovered this store while in Cleveland visiting some friends. I had never heard of it before and I was totally smitten by the time I left. I was so excited when I discovered a Gilmore Girls (which I know isn’t technically vintage) in plus size! Score! They have so many awesome tees for popculure and music that you should definitely check them out.
  9. Last but not least, if you’re looking for REAL band and concert tees, that can be a real struggle. There are a few sites that will deliver for you though. Check out Tyranny and Mutation and Collectors Weekly.
