The 2019/2020 school year, like every school year before it, is starting off with new trends than the last year ended with. Kind of. There is a sense of fashion and style that has morphed and evolved, but the kids these days are still heavily focused on comfort functionality, and this is a trend that everyone can enjoy! Join us in today’s post as we offer some insight into four back to school trends for the 2019 school year.

Graphic T-Shirts and Hoodies

Graphic tees, that have been on trend since the 1970s, are still going strong and allow kids, teens, and adults alike, to express their interests and personalities. From your favorite sporting brand to a vintage band tee and everything in between, t-shirts and hoodies are front-page insights into who the wearer is. Custom screen printing affords the option of individuality and personalized style while also following the “in” trends.


Glitter, foil prints, and everything shiny are in this year. Make a bold statement and add shine to your style with shimmer accents. Glitter and sequins are popular accents on graphic tees and on shoes, backpacks, and hats. Especially reversible sequins with clever sayings or designs. At Shirt Shack, your custom t-shirt company, we can create all the custom shimmer and shine on your apparel. We can add glitter, foil metallic heat transfer vinyl, or rhinestones.


Comfy t-shirts, joggers, or full tracksuits are all the comfortable rage this season. Movement, freedom, and comfort are the hallmark of today’s fashion. Pair our leisurewear with a pair of hightop sneakers and a messy bun or hat to portray the ultimate illusion of “chill.” dress up the look with a button-down or a manicured hair cut sans the hat. At Shirt Shack, we can customize your tracksuit and your ballcap with your personal logo or your name or initials. You’ll love what some custom embroidery can do for your fashion.


We aren’t quite sure that the layered look has ever “left” the trending world, but, if it did, it’s back! Layers, lots of layers. This trend is both functional and comfortable. Too hot, drop a layer, cool fall breeze starts blowing, add a layer. Get creative. Button downs under t-shirts, plaid under graphic tees, pattern mix, style mix, just don’t overthink it. At Shirt Shack, we’ve got all the layers you need — tanks, tees, hoodies, polos, track jackets, and everything else you need to start the new school year off on the right foot.
