District Through the Decades: V-Neck T Shirt

We learned in history class that it’s important to look back in time to learn from the people and events that came before us. This is also true in the world of fashion! It’s no wonder that vintage styles seem to constantly present themselves in modern pieces. We thought we would take a look back at some iconic styles from past decades, and offer tips on how to recreate them today with our basic District® Tri-Blend V-Neck T Shirts!

There were so many iconic looks from the ‘50s, ranging from poodle skirts to bobby socks. We thought we’d take the greaser route, however, as they were among the first to sport t shirts, jeans, and other basic looks as fashion statements!

The ‘60s were a time of change all over the world. This change was also reflected in the fashion of the decade. Individual styles really came out, from polished looks inspired by Jackie and John F. Kennedy, to bohemian hippie culture. We opted for the mod look, consisting of dark, bold colors and structured shapes.

By this decade, V-neck t shirts and jeans were no longer reserved for beatnik youths. They were now mainstays of everyday life, and were commonly worn throughout the school day and even during a night out on the town! The ‘70s really marked the dawn of casual wear!

The ‘80s were a time filled with fun fashion and bright accessories. You can’t talk about this decade without mentioning Madonna and her influence on fashion and music. Pinks and blacks and whites, and of course, that signature ‘80s hairstyle, all defined this feel-good era! Colorful V-neck t shirts were often paired with circle skirts and pointed pumps to make a bold statement.

Just about all of the previous decades have made a fashion comeback over the past few years, and now it’s the ‘90s turn. It was a time characterized by true individuality. While bands like Nirvana impacted youth culture, shows like Saved By the Bell captured the hearts of teens all across the country. We opted for the classic grunge look to represent the ‘90s:

  • Tri-Blend V-Neck Tee in Eggplant Heather
  • High-waisted denim cutoff shorts
  • Flannel plaid shirt
  • Black Doc Marten boots


Ok, we know the early 2000s weren’t that long ago, and to some, it doesn’t even feel like we’re in a different decade! Nevertheless, a quick look at some of the trends in the new millenium might change your mind. You might even still have some of your own clothes from this era!
