Best New Apparel For Spring 2019

Highlighting the best new spring garments for your custom t-shirt and apparel projects.

After what felt like an endless Winter, Spring has officially arrived. With the change in season comes new life in nature, but it also means loads of new t-shirts and other garments from our favorite apparel companies.

So that you don’t have to do all of the research to find the coolest new pieces of apparel, we did it for you. Here’s a summary of t-shirt trends we’re seeing, as well as a round-up of the best new t-shirts and apparel to print on from Spring ‘19.

Spring ’19 Trends

Spring is an exciting time in fashion and apparel. Sick of Winter, most people have spent the past couple of months dreaming of warmer weather and the clothes they’ll be wearing with it.

After browsing through countless new garment styles, there are a couple of major trends we noticed in each manufacturer’s Spring lines.


The first major t-shirt and apparel trend we noticed was a lot of new crop top garments available for printing. Whether they’re t-shirts, sweaters, or hoodies, it seems like almost every apparel manufacturer is creating a crop-top version of their classic garments.

For clothing brands, or anyone looking for an edgier, more fashion-forward custom garment, it’s worth checking out some of the crop-top options we’ll link to below.

Garment-Dyed Tees

Another t-shirt trend we’ve seen a lot of this year is the garment-washed look for t-shirts. Made popular by brands like Comfort Colors, the garment-wash t-shirt look is everywhere now. 

Apparel manufacturers are weaving this new fabric style into all of their classic t-shirts, so be on the lookout for these lighter color options when ordering your next round of custom t-shirts.

Our Favorite Garments From Spring ‘19

Next Level 7415 | Inspired Dye Pocket Crew

Next Level Apparel makes some of the most popular basic t-shirts that we print on, so the look, feel, and quality of the brand are familiar.

This new garment will keep the same feel and fit of your favorite Next Level tees, but the garment dye gives it a soft, lived-in look that lends your t-shirt some unique character.

Available in 10 different color options, this t-shirt is definitely worth taking a look for some light, fun, warmer weather vibes.

Alternative Apparel 5114 | Headliner Vintage Jersey Cropped T-Shirt

Among all of the new cropped apparel pieces, this cropped crewneck from Alternative Apparel is easily one of our favorites.

Stitched together with their signature cotton/polyester blend, this cropped t-shirt is crazy soft. The set-in ribbed neckband also adds to the uniqueness of this t-shirt’s look.

This shirt is available in three neutral, earthy color options.

Alternative Apparel 3499 | Origin Cotton Modal T-Shirt

Scoop-neck t-shirts have had a very popular year, and it doesn’t look like that trend is going anywhere. This soft, flowy scoop-neck from Alternative Apparel is one of the best.

Featuring a relaxed fit, wide neck, dropped shoulders, and a shirttail hemline, this t-shirt is the perfect mix of loose and flowy but still flattering.

Independent Trading Co. AFX64CRP | Women’s Lightweight Crop Hooded Pullover

Independent Trading Co. produces some of our favorite fleece products, so naturally, we were thrilled when they came out with a cropped hoodie.

The women’s lightweight crop is soft, slim-fitting, and features a unique raw edge waist hem, making it a really appealing option for streetwear and other fashion-forward brands.

p.s. right now it’s only available in a handful of solid colors, but be on the lookout for a black camo color option in a couple of months.

Bella+Canvas 6501 | Women’s Cropped Long Sleeve

This cropped long sleeve from Bella+Canvas is the perfect piece for transitioning from Winter to Spring. 

Made out of Bella+Canvas’ light, Airlume cotton, this t-shirt works well on its own for warmer spring days, or as a perfect layering piece when temperatures drop a bit.

Bella+Canvas 3301 | Unisex Sueded Tee

This t-shirt from Bella-Canvas is a new twist on a classic t-shirt. Through a special finishing process, they give this t-shirt –– a polyester/cotton blend –– a suede look and feel, something very unique to the custom t-shirt world.

Available in 25 different color options, this t-shirt is definitely worth checking out for your next project.

Lane Seven LST002 | Vintage Crewneck Tee

This 100% ringspun cotton t-shirt from Lane Seven Apparel definitely caught our eye. Through a special dye and mineral wash process, they’re able to achieve this natural, washed, vintage look.

With a soft feel, retail fit, and double stitching, you’ll certainly be wearing this t-shirt for a long time to come.
