5 T-Shirt Design Trends for 2020

Our favorite annual traditions: recapping the year’s t-shirt design fashion trends!

1. Bright Colors

Something we’ve noticed a lot in 2019, is an uptick in bright, vibrant t-shirt designs. This applies to the prints themselves, and the actual color of the shirt as well. A prime example is our Cali Stamp T-shirt we have made available in bright popping colors.

2. Nostalgia-Inspired Designs

We’re not sure if it’s Stranger Things related or what, but there seems to be a huge demand for nostalgia. Look at the top-grossing films this Summer and you’ll see titles like:

  • Spiderman
  • Toy Story 4
  • Lion King
  • Men in Black

It seems pretty clear that everything from fashion to entertainment is heading back to the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.

3. Mineral Wash Apparel

This next trend is one of the apparel industry’s best-kept secrets that looks like it’s finally been let out, and that is mineral wash apparel. Evoking grunge feelings of the 80s and 90s, mineral wash t-shirts are an awesome option for faded, worn-in looks.

4. Front Chest, Back Middle

Now this trend isn’t exactly unique to this year by any means, but it’s worth noting simply for it’s staying power in the t-shirt design world: t-shirts with a small, left chest print on the front and a larger, center-aligned print on the back are favorites time and time again. One of our best selling designs this year Bowery Cali Palms has proven how costumers are willing to pay even a fraction more for a back print tee.

5. Just Text Designs

This trend is also a holdover from our list last year, but it deserves to be on the list again because it hasn’t gone anywhere. T-shirts have a unique ability to convey a message, and type-centric designs tend to convey them best. Whether a company mantra, bit of humor, words to live by, or even just a plane Nasa Worm logo text, a clever saying laid out in a way that’s aesthetically pleasing will always resonate with people.

Make Your Own Trend

Whether you’re designing a t-shirt, print, or, well, anything really, we hope these 5 t-shirt design trends give you some inspiration. Have you noticed any design trends that we didn’t list? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you about what’s going to be hot in the coming months.

Mini Skirts = Porn in Uganda

187a5870-7a06-4742-aebb-95457bc0c82a“Today pornography in Uganda transcends publication of explicit materials and includes any indecent communication, speech, entertainment, stage play, broadcast music, dance, art, fashion, motion picture and audio recording. It also outlaws anything that “shows sexual parts of a person such as breasts, thighs, buttocks or any erotic behavior intended to cause sexual excitement or any indecent act or behavior tending to corrupt morals”.”
