Dedicated Style Tips: Band Tees

A few months ago, my sister emailed me from Australia with a fashion question. She wanted some advice on where she could find band t-shirts. Specifically, she wanted band tees by the old-school, rock & roll masters: Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin. Fast forward a few months, I finally have the answer she was looking for in 2BHipTshirts.

A few months ago, my sister emailed me from Australia with a fashion question. She wanted some advice on where she could find band t-shirts. Specifically, she wanted band tees by the old-school, rock & roll masters: Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin. Fast forward a few months, I finally have the answer she was looking for in 2BHipTshirts.

There is something to be said about paying homage to your favorite band by wearing their logo emblazoned across your chest. Over the years, plenty of celebrities have been seen out and about in rock & roll tees, from Kristen Stewart to Kate Moss. British model Agyness Deyn is a longtime fan of the look and has even worn them on the red carpet. Perhaps she inspired up-and-coming Australian model Jess Hart; Jess recently shared pictures on her blog of a trip to Thailand, where she was seen in an edgy Guns & Roses t-shirt.

Given the popularity of the rock & roll tee, we thought it would be fun to see how it is being styled around the world. We have picked some famous fashionistas and some street-style stars to show you how to work the rock & roll tee.

#1. Mary Kate Olsen has always loved experimenting with fashion and no look is outside her realm of possibilities. Here, she tries an edgy, rocker look by pairing her band tee with lace-up boots and a fur-lined leather motorcycle jacket. To us, Mary Kate seems more likely to pick an obscure band over a well-known one, so we think that the Cinderella 80s Metal Night Songs 1986 Tour T-Shirt is a perfect choice for a MK-inspired look! Grab your best leather and you are good to go!

#2. Agyness Deyn’s love of music has always been obvious, none more so than when she wears one of her many, many band tshirts. Here, she works her usual pared-down, punky look by mixing her band tee with shredded skinny jeans and Converse sneakers. For an Agyness-inspired look, you should definitely go for the Ramones Presidential Seal T-Shirt and pay homage to the group long-cited as the first punk rock group. Get your best pair of distressed jeans out and tousle that hair!

#3. Lindsay Lohan’s fashion aesthetic is as unpredictable as the girl herself and she is always willing to surprise her fans. Here, she adds edge to an otherwise simple outfit by rocking a Def Leppard tee with a pair of plain black leggings and ballet flats. To get Lindsay’s look, try a tee like the Led Zeppelin US Tour 1977 T-Shirt Swan Song. For that tough-yet-chic look, keep the rest of your outfit simple; add skinny jeans or plain leggings, then throw on a pair of flats.

#4. Like any fashion-lover, Mischa Barton loves to experiment and quite often, she’ll try mixing one print with another pattern. Here, she lets her band tee fly under the radar by layering it underneath a leopard print scarf. The overall effect is subtle but totally cool. To get Mischa’s look, pick a tshirt by a band that is super-edgy, like the Guns N’ Roses Appetite for Destruction T-Shirt. Then, tone it down with your accessories and you’re all set!

    I think this is the first and last time I will say I like Mischa’s outfit over Mary-Kate’s. I’m a big fan of band tees, and I think I just like that Mischa paired the tee with a box blazer. It’s the strange paradox of posh and grunge. That is more likely how I’d wear a band tee.

    I used to live in band tees! Not so much anymore, it’s hard TOO much with them outfit wise (aside from pairing them with jeans in the semi-grunge look)…
