Vintage tees are not only rad, but they are timeless. Custom tees made vintage don’t just tie any outfit together, but they make a statement. Decade-themed t-shirts are everything you need to rep your favorite decade with pride and express your personality with style. Here are some ideas to get you inspired to start designing your own customized decade-themed apparel:
Gatsby would be proud to have you rocking his vision of extravagance and the American Dream with a tee that represents the Roarin’ Twenties. Perhaps champagne bottles, top hats, and flapper feather-ed headbands spark a design interest? This was the era of Prohibition so pay homage to underground drinking and dance clubs or design a tribute to the beauty that is jazz.
We love Rock and Roll baby! Show your love for the birth of rock n’ roll with an Elvis Presley tee. The 1950s was a revolutionary time in the music world- influenced by the Blues but it stood out as its own. The music was more rebellious- louder and dirtier and attracted a tribe of its own support which you can be apart of with your own design.
Peace and Love ladies and gents. We are leading with good vibes and bringing back Woodstock. The sixties stood out as a time for both inspiration and aspiration in scholarship and popular culture. The 60s were an era of counterculture and the Civil Rights Movement. This decade is also known as the Swinging Sixties because of the laxed attitude surrounding social taboos and the emergence of a variety of music ranging from folk music to the revolution of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon. It’s time to be your own modern hippie with a customized tee!
You are all that a bag of chips peeps! The 90s were a magical time filled with glitter, neon everything especially spandex leotards with matching scrunchies, oversized home phones, beeping pagers, and blow-up furniture. Growing up in the 90s meant that MTV cribs and TRL were a standard must-watch during those teen glory years and this generation is the last to know a time before the internet, social media and texting. Crazy right?! D.A.R.E to show your pride for being a 90s baby with a neon-colored t-shirt to match a pair of platform shoes.
The 2000s were a simpler time, indeed. Sure, many of us had Blackberries attached to our hips but the 2000s were relatively more peaceful without the insane influx of app notifications distracting us and giving us neck aches from looking down onto a digital screen. The 2000s were also a time where the selfie didn’t exist. I know, how did millennials express their innermost thoughts without the absence of their face gazing out into the distance with a beach sunset in the background. The 2000s were the golden age of Nickelodeon shows so maybe a customized tee with a boy band getting green-slime-bombed is the perfect design for you!
These are just a few suggestions to get the ball rolling to inspire you on your favorite decade! Have fun and if you get stuck, our design department and friendly customer service team are here to help.
