I know all of you have notice that everyone in the tshirt business has been doing the oversize prints and have been killing it for the past year and a half. Affliction and  Ed Hardy I can say made this look popular.Now you have different brands knocking it off. WHY? Cus it sells so why not do what the big boys do, right?

Well Im here to tell you, that working in the fashion industry, alot of buyers and stores have been tired of this look and are looking for something new. The new upcoming look is now plain and simple. You will start seeing a lot of type based shirts this year and probably for the up coming seasons. Also to keep an eye on is the pixelated/digital look. Almost a mix between 80s video game effect mixed with fancy fonts. You will still have some type of image in the design but not as big.

Also what will play a big role is the color combination. I’m seeing a lot of yellow coming into play. Purples, but not the Royal purple thats been killed last year but a lighter purple. As usual your cool greys, and pastels will still be hot.

A great brand to keep an eye on and that is always on the ball with trends is Ralph Lauren & Hugo Boss.

If you are a designer like me, I always go through the pages of certain sites for design ideas (ideas, as in inspiration, never knock off another brands look. that will just make you a fake artist)

And for colors, here’s my secret: SNEAKER FREAKER MAG.

I would look at the up and coming shoes and see what colors they use and try to create a shirt that would match it.

Enjoy
