How to Match Your T-shirt and Pants

Trying to make sure you are properly in fashion can give many people headaches from the frustration. There are way too many rules to abide by and worry about. Well, stop worrying about it! Each person has his own sense of comfort and style. Finding your style may take a little trial and error, but when you do find the perfect look for you, it will be worth it.

One of the first things you need to think about when picking your clothing is what you like. If you love t-shirts there are many different styles to choose from. You can have t-shirts with sayings, graphics, political statements, sports, or bands. The options really are numerous. So pick the shirts you love the most and use them to choose your pants.

Very rarely will a t-shirt look good with a pair of dress pants. Occasionally, you can get away with wearing a t-shirt with dress pants, but you have to be careful. A simple pair of black slacks can look fine with a black t-shirt in a rock n’ roll style graphic or slogan. However, not too many people can pull off this look, so there are no guarantees this style will work for you.

Gray t-shirts with dark brown pants really do not look good together. The colors don’t blend well and can be quite off balance. If you wear a gray t-shirt your best bet is a pair of jeans. Darker blue jeans will be the ideal look. You can also do black since it looks fine but the blue looks the best. Really, jeans will look the great with any color t-shirt. Faded jeans are a nice touch to vintage looking t-shirts while tight wrangler style jeans are perfect for t-shirts with a cowboy saying.

Corduroys are not the best choice for t-shirts. Polo shirts and button down shirts look the best with corduroys. T-shirts tend to look awkward and out of proportion when worn with corduroy pants. If your pants are a color other than blue or black, you will need to match them with your t-shirt with more care.

To match a red t-shirt with pants, you can choose from several different colors for your pants. Yellow, white, tan, and purple match the best with red, other than blue or black. For a yellow shirt your best bets are dark green, deep red and deep brown. A pink shirt looks beautiful with a deep brown although other colors such as light green and a bright yellow may also work.

Matching your t-shirt with your pants takes a bit of experimentation. Put the colors together in bright sunlight to see if they appeal to you. If you can’t look at them because they don’t look right, you have your answer. You should also consider the graphics so that you don’t have a basketball shirt while wearing baseball pants. Take your time when you are matching your clothes, so you are comfortable when you step outside. Of course, when all else fails, ask someone else!
