Choosing the Art Print for Long Sleeve T-Shirts to Suit Your Personality

When it comes to choosing the perfect art print for your long sleeve t-shirt, it's important to consider your personality and personal style. The artwork on your t-shirt can be a reflection of your interests, hobbies, or even a statement piece that sparks conversations. With doodlewear's "Autumn Artistry" collection, you'll find a wide variety of art prints to suit any personality. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice:
  1. Consider your interests: Are you a nature lover? A fan of abstract art? A positivity enthusiast? Look for art prints that align with your passions and interests. For example, if you love nature, choose a t-shirt with stunning bird or floral artwork. If you're big on positivity, opt for a design that will help raise your vibration.
  1. Think about the occasion: Are you looking for a t-shirt to wear casually or for a special event? Consider the tone and theme of the art print to match the occasion. For a casual day out, a playful and vibrant art print can add a pop of colour to your outfit. On the other hand, for a more formal event, choose a more sophisticated and elegant design.
  1. Experiment with colors and patterns: Long sleeve t-shirts offer a canvas for creative expression, so don't be afraid to experiment with different colours and patterns. If you prefer a bold and eye-catching look, go for vibrant prints with contrasting colours. If you prefer a more subtle and understated style, opt for monochromatic or minimalist designs.

Remember, the key is to choose an art print that resonates with you and makes you feel confident and comfortable. Now that you have an idea of how to choose the perfect art print, let's explore the different styles and materials of long sleeve t-shirts offered by doodlewear.

Choosing the Right Fit and Size for Your Long Sleeve T-Shirts in NZ

By taking accurate measurements, you'll ensure your chosen tee fits just right, offering both comfort and style.
  • Fit and Size Matters: When it comes to long sleeve t-shirts, fit and size play a crucial role.

Care and Maintenance of Long Sleeve T-Shirts

When it comes to caring for your long sleeve t-shirts, it's important to follow some simple guidelines to ensure they maintain their quality and longevity. Firstly, always check the care instructions on the garment's label before washing. Most long sleeve t-shirts can be machine washed, but it's best to wash them inside out using a gentle cycle and cold water to prevent abrasion, shrinking or colour fading. Avoid using harsh detergents or bleach, as they can damage the fabric and artwork. Instead, opt for a mild detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics.

After washing, it's essential to air dry your long sleeve t-shirts to avoid shrinkage away from direct sunlight. Avoid using a dryer, as the high heat can cause the fabric to shrink and the artwork to crack or fade. If needed, you can iron your long sleeve t-shirt on a low heat setting, ensuring that you don't directly iron over the artwork. Following these care and maintenance tips will help your long sleeve t-shirts stay in great condition for years to come. You can learn about doodlewear's care instructions HERE
