Contrast Sleeves That Love Attention: High End, Low End, And From The Other End Of The Universe

Today I want to show you 11 t-shirts with contrast sleeves that are not afraid of stand out. One of these t-shirts was an inspiration for my new DIY. Can you guess which one? 😉 Tell me your guess in the comments; the answer (that is the DIY post) will be published next week 🙂

I love this trend, because it is not that trendy (hehe) and thus it helps to stand out from the crowd. When was the last time you saw a contrast sleeve t-shirt on the street? Exactly! And it’s the best thing for me when people turn their heads to look at my outfit.

So, let’s take a look how the sleeves can attract attention!

High End (Meaning Fancy) Contrast Sleeve T-Shirts

Some girls know how to creatively stain their clothes. I am not one of them. Every time when pieces of food drop out of my mouth, they create only ugly stains on my chest – nothing close to this creative creation.

DIY Alert: You can make one yourself! Use this technique from Spider-Man (you may want to put a fan in front of you to have more beer flowing to your chest):

Sparkly shoulders! This tee is a great garment to wear when you want to perform an intense shoulder shake dance (check out Beyonce`s moves below!)

Ok, I do agree this one looks a bit boring, but it`s the material that makes it special! It is made of leather, and from its look I can guess it is super soft. If I had a top like this I would be constantly petting it… again and again… even when I wear it…  I would look like a total weirdo!

Or maybe very Samus? You know Samus, right? A main character from a sci fi action-adventure game Metroid made by Nintendo. Samus has a real cult following. The cool thing about it is that while it looks like one of these super strong pumped-up robots…

…in fact it is a girl! Samus was the very first female character made for a playable male-dominated role in a mainstream video game: “[F]irst […] femme de force that didn’t rely on a man to save her” (Wikipedia).  Gamers just loved her.

And as you can see she wears big BIG round shoulders! I wonder if Junya Watanabe got inspired by her costume… hmmmm… quite possible!

      Jenny, I agree with you the most of these t-shirts are not close to being simple and humble hehe:)
      they are definitely not for everyone, and I guess that’s the reason they really never became a big trend.
