If there’s one style of clothing that never seems to go out of fashion, it’s tops with popstars on them – even if that particular popstar is no longer around or isn’t currently on the charts, popstar t-shirts always remain popular and countless different designs featuring their face, body or image have been created over the years and released by various labels, from top designers to high street brands and even amateurs or semi-professionals who are passionate about creating and selling their own clothing. Below is s a select few popstar t-shirts that we love that range in the popstars themselves, brands and prices:
Boy George was one of the biggest musicians in the 80s and one of the most daring when it came to fashion choices so what better way to honour his influence on the more exciting and quirky side of fashion than with this t-shirt designed by David Bailey? Though at £70 you may want to start saving for it!
Throughout the 70s and 80s, Debbie Harry became a staple in pop music culture, especially being one of very few big bands out at the time that had a female lead singer. This zebra-print vest from 8Ball (£18.99) is cute, yet very much something that the punk-inspired Debbie would probably wear herself.
Combining legendary pop music with modern children’s films, Big Blue have created a “Despicable Me” Michael Jackson minion t-shirt, which is available on Play.com for £12.99. It also comes in various different colours.
We really like this simple yet lovely Whitney Houston t-shirt with a detailed painted portrait of the beautiful singer’s face. £16.99 from T-Shirt Subway.
David Bowie is known to be a fan of designer Paul Smith so the brand created this t-shirt (£35) based on him. Not your usual Bowie top – most usually are a print of his face from the iconic album “Aladdin Sane” – but definitely something cool and different that fans of the label and the star will probably like.
This basic but bold Amy Winehouse t-shirt from Spicetag (£11.95) was inspired by 60s pop art.
Conchita Wurst, the winner of Eurovision 2014, has become one of the world’s most popular popstars of the year and Maxcrude have released this t-shirt bearing Conchita’s now world-famous face. The tee is €20 and is available for men and women.
Queen of Pop Madonna has had her face and image used plenty of times on labels’ clothing but this one from House Of The Gods for £39.99 is one of our favourites.
Hip hop star Pharrell Williams is among many celebrities whose face has been photoshopped with Hype Means Nothing’s signature “hand glasses” pose. However, at a hefty £65 from Selfridges, it’s probably not for those on a tight budget…
Designed and printed in Thailand, this oversized tank top with Christina Aguilera’s controversial yet sexy pose from her “Stripped” days can also work as a mini-dress. You can purchase it from eBay for £8.95.
