2. Western Style

Closely related to the vintage trend, the Western style incorporates southwestern vibes, cowboy themes, and simple, laid-back designs. This style is a hit on Etsy and is often used for brands, bachelorette parties, and song lyrics. You’ll find these designs on neutral or earth-tone colorways, often with a boxy fit.

4. Bootleg Tees & Oversized Prints

Inspired by vintage mixtapes and streetwear, bootleg tees feature collage-heavy designs with multiple images and simple text. This style often incorporates sports, pop culture, and motorsport themes. Oversized prints are key, maximizing the space on the front or back of the shirt.
