When you are choosing what clothes to wear or print on, what do you consider? If you are like most people, you probably consider style, fit, cost, and comfort. These are all extremely important, but there is one thing you can’t forget about. What is that? COLOR!

The color of your clothing plays an important role in the look and feel you are going for. We know that choosing the right color of clothing can be a little tricky, so let’s go over the most popular colors to help you make your choice a little easier.


Timeless Colors

There are a few different colors that have stood the test of time. Black, white, and grey, as well as variations of these shades, have always been a popular choice in the garment world. Why? Because they are a way to play it safe while still looking stylish and on trend. Additionally, black, white, and grey t-shirts are easy to pair with most other clothing items, taking the guesswork out of it and making your life a little bit easier.

When it comes to screen printing, these staples are also a popular choice because they are easy colors to pair screen printing inks with. You can get almost any color ink to look good on tees of these colors.

Along the same lines of popularity are navy and red. While these shades are not quite as easy to pair as black, white, and grey, they have been around for so long that they are an obvious choice. People stick with what they know and these two colors are definitely strong contenders.


Bright and Vibrant

Bright and vibrant colors are definitely making their way up the ranks in popularity, especially among the younger crowd. These hues are an excellent way to stand out and are an especially popular choice for those who are looking to make a statement. Featured in influencers feeds all over social media and a trendy, go-to choice, the fashion industry has taken notice and these colors are popping up everywhere.

Decorators have also taken notice and bright and vibrant colors are becoming increasingly popular in the screen printing, HTV, DTG, and embroidery worlds. While these colors are a bit trickier to pair with a variety of ink colors, when paired correctly, you can end up with a standout tee. With that in mind, if you are choosing to print or decorate on bright and vibrant tees, choose ink colors that will complement the tee and don’t be afraid to get creative!


Pastel tees are also currently in trend. They make a statement but are not quite as loud as their bright and vibrant counterparts.  Lilacs, mauves, peaches, and mints are the current most popular choices for this color sector. Pastels are becoming a regular color option for graphic tees, especially for kiddos. They are often paired with white or black ink, but the options are endless when it comes to these versatile hues.
