Where to buy a band t-shirt and how to style it

Band t-shirts are a slightly controversial fashion statement. Genuine fans wear them to express their love for an act but they’ve always been a popular choice among fashionistas also.

This old reliable is making waves right now so here’s a look at some of the best band t-shirts available at the moment.

Boohoo.com have a great selection this year from Nirvana to Guns N’ Roses to The Doors.

This black Nirvana t-shirt is quite baggy, ideal for a casual look.

Band tees don’t have to be just short sleeved round-necks, Boohoo also have cut-out shoulder and long sleeve styles.

This Guns N’ Roses style is perfect for a night out, while the long sleeved Rolling Stone one is great for layering coming into winter.

For a vintage or upcycled band t-shirt, check out Etsy and Asos Marketplace.

ShopKashmir on Etsy have the coolest oversize band-tshirts with lace up inserts. These are a great one of a kind look.

 

Fresh in Temple Bar is a great place to pick up customised clothing and I love their lace-up t-shirt dresses. They’re €30.

If you prefer your band t-shirt a bit more distressed, BleachdClothing on Etsy sell cool customised ones. Bear in mind, unique customised band t-shirts don’t come cheap, all of the Etsy ones I saw were €40+.

These band tees have been given a modern spin with a cut-out neckline and bleaching. This is pretty easy to do at home if you enjoy customising.

RoadkillVintage have some slightly cheaper styles such as this Kiss t-shirt with slashed sides for €25 on Etsy.

This Van Halen tour t-shirt from Shein.com is also a great choice, looks like a real vintage t-shirt complete with list of tour dates but is cheap as chips at €9.09.

Shein also sell some great crop tops, like this grey Guns N’ Roses one.

Naturally Nasty Gal have the coolest rock t-shirts known to man.

If you’re a true rock fan sick of wearing oversize men’s shirts, now is a great time to finally  get your favourite band tee in your own size.

If you just love the look, band t-shirts are perfect with black leather jacket, jeans and boots. Attitude optional.

I’ve styled my Missguided Guns n’Roses one with a vintage leather skirt and holographic heels for going out but it’s just a good under a denim shirt or with shorts for daytime.

I really like that it has a list of tour dates on the back, making it look more authentic. I bought this in a medium for a looser fit.

And you can also layer them under a bomber in colder weather.

While on holidays in San Sebastian, I picked up this Iron Maiden one which I think looks great with blue jeans or shorts and a bandana.

    I always feel bad wearing babd t-shirts of bands I don’t know. Until recently I refused to wear nirvana shirts until a friend of mine gave me a proper education on their music.

    You’ve also given me some epic diy ideas and now I’m super excited to go make recycled clothes 💕👌
