Fashion Tip: V neck t-shirt:

Lil Wayne rocking a v neck t-shirt.

Versatile, timeless and just stylish, that is a simple way to describe the fitted V neck T- shirt. If you are a style buff, you were sold at versatile.

TThere is no end to the number of getups you can create with this T-tshirt: It can be worn alone, with a blazer or jacket, load it with jewellery, wear it inside a cardigan, with a hat or without, and the V-neck is still a winner.

Even if you do not give a hoot about versatility and the ever changing trends, the V neck is still leading the shirt pack, being the perfect foil for jeans, oh and the best excuse to show off those muscles you have been working so hard on. For the dude who takes forever to update his wardrobe, you won’t be out dated with your stock of V necks as long as you keep your figure. This brings me to my next point.

Your favourite celeb or star may look good in that V neck and skinnies, but it is not a guarantee that you will. Notice, we haven’t said the V neck is for everyone because it isn’t and if you dispute, wait for the next guy with a belly attempting to pull off a fitted V neck and you will get my point. Skinnier silhouettes rock this look better. For dudes a little on the portlyside (with a little meaning exactly that) who still want to wear the fitted V neck, try the oldest trick in the book, layering, with a cardigan, or blazer, provided they do not wear skinnies too. Wear a wider leg to even out the body, taking away the focus from the waistline. If you know for a fact that you are more than a little portly, then you and I say this with the utmost sensitivity have no business wearing the coloured fitted tee.

Assuming you have the build for the fitted tee. Now, just which is the best to buy? I would suggest one with solid colours. You can wear it with jeans for a casual look or dress it up. For day to day wear, stripped and neutral colours are perfect. Still want variety? Try a long sleeve V neck.
