Blood is the New Black T-Shirts Menswear Guest Artist
Back in the '50s Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein were on to something, and T-shirt designers right now on the cusp of 2010 know it. There's nothing like exhibiting our own art museum on the streets with the help of a graphic tee. With contrast imaging and sometimes bright, vibrant colors, these T-shirts can be as eye catching as a print on your bedroom wall. As most T-shirts, they're great for weekend wear and after-work/school comfort, but also boast a "look at me!" mentality that you'd be silly not to flaunt out and about. Commercial stores like Urban Outfitters and Wet Seal have caught on the trend, but going the vintage boutique route could also score you some killer art-piece-like wear. While it may be impossible to get an original pop-art multi-colored Marilyn Monroe lithograph portrait, an eccentric collection of pop-art inspired clothing is a fun and approachable way to tune into your inner art-lover.

Okay, I, like most girls, love to dress up. I love zipping up a sexy dress, painting on some dramatic cat eyes, and slipping into some sky-high heels. But I also have those weekends when I am so burnt out, running from class to work to the gym, that I rather curl up in my pajamas and hide under the covers all weekend then spend an hour putting together an outfit. That's why I couldn't be more ecstatic that t-shirts are formal this fall. Whoever came up with this idea is a genius and my new favorite person. There are so many options (these tees are literally everywhere, which means you can find them in any price range), but my favorite is the Slub Cotton Crystal Necklace Tee from J Crew. It's ultra classy and chic, while still being unbelievably comfortable and wearable at the same time. Sure, the price tag is a little steep ($49.50 to be exact), but considering the amount of times I'm going to wear this thing (when I finally get my paws on it), it will be totally worth it. What makes it even better is that with this one addition to my wardrobe I have enough new outfit combos to get me through every weekend in fall. Click over to our friends at CollegeCandy for more!
