The days of wearing a brand’s logo in large across the front of your t-shirts should be well behind us by now, after all, we’re not billboards. But this doesn’t mean that we can’t embrace the graphic tee.
These pieces really come into their own during summer, a time where clothing is minimal and it is important to still be comfortable whilst showing off your style. The graphic tee is the perfect way to do this; they come in so many styles that only little searching is needed to find out what print is best for you.
Brands from Adidas to Gucci are realising the universal appeal of this style, so there is no reason for you to go off-brand. Regardless of your style, there’s a top for you. I’ve gone to the one stop shop that is END and found some of the best graphic tees for summer 2022.
A.P.C. Simon Dolphin Logo Stripe Tee – £99
Who’s to say that a graphic tee has to be plain white? French brand A.P.C. bring out some of the best tees year after year, and 2022 is no exception. Who can resist this cute cartoon dolphin to brighten up a simple summer fit?
Burberry Letchford Logo Tee – £290
Contrary to what I said earlier, this loud, billboardesque tee is hitting the spot for me. Simple in its execution but loud enough to make a statement, who doesn’t love a bit of Burberry?
Gucci GRC Stripe Interlock Tee – £360
Understated Gucci, who’d have thought it. Such a versatile tee; worn alone, it will bring just enough attention but wearing it under a light summer jacket with the bold stripe poking through will really make it pop.
Maison Kitsune By Olympia Le-Tan Taxi Fox Classic Tee – £85
Maison Kitsune are known for their famous fox tees yet this time they’ve given him a little twist. Their collaboration with Olympia Le-Han sees him speeding around New York in a yellow cab, finished off with script branding embroidered across the chest for that luxe finish.
New Balance Essentials Celebrate Run Tee – £25
One for the runners out there, this essentials tee from New Balance is the perfect summer throw on. Cut into a relaxed fit for those balmy days and featuring a retro, colourful print showcasing the brand’s iconic sneakers.
