I’m just back from my holidays and even in the north of Scotland it was definitely t-shirt weather. If your wardrobe needs a refresh for summer, here’s some cute tees and tops to keep you looking and feeling cool.
We’ve featured Ukrainian needlefelt artists MANOONI a few times on the blog and you can help support them during the war by shopping from this special t-shirt collection in collaboration with two string jane (US). They’re handmade to order and available in loads of sizes for adults and kids.
JapanLA (US) have teamed up with Sanrio and Spirit Jersey for a super kawaii collection of crop tops featuring Hello Kitty & Friends. They all have puff printing on the front and back, and come in sizes XS – 2XL. If you’re not a fan of the cropped look, they have longer styles with Sanrio and Pokemon characters too.
The new Pusheen Sips collection at The Pusheen Shop (US) is so cute for summertime with a whole fridge full of Pusheen-shaped drinks. I love the fresh colours in this t-shirt and there’s a pink one too, both with sizes XS-2XL.
tokidoki (US) have a lot of really cute new apparel items to choose from but this Good Vibes Tee gets my vote for putting you in a summer holiday mood. Most come in sizes XS-3XL. For those of us in the UK, ARTBOX (UK) have a big selection of tokidoki clothing.
Did you know that Momiji (UK) also make t-shirts? There’s so many happy and positive illustrations to choose from, with a few colour variations and in sizes S-3XL.
Dreamy Bows (UK) added so many new J-Fashion tops from ACDC Rag and Listen Flavor lately and there’s something for all fashion styles (though usually only in one size). This KONEKO PRINCESS t-shirt is too adorable.
Print-on-demand site TeePublic (worldwide) recently added eco t-shirts to their range, in sizes S – 5XL, and they’re partly made from recycled RPET bottles! The base colours are quite muted but there’s plenty of colourful designs from kawaii artists to cheer them up.
And finally, a Froggo hoodie from Yoyo the Ricecorpse (UK) for when there’s a chance of rain. The frog head pockets are so kawaii and there’s frog eyes and cheeks on the hood too! Sizes X-2XL.
