Music and fashion are two things that go hand in hand with one another, and what better way to support your favourite band than to rock their merchandise? Merchandise is one of the main ways bands get their source of income these days, but it’s also a way for fans to represent and bond with others who are also representing! These days, band merchandise no longer only consists of the stereotypical black T-shirt with the band’s name and logo stamped on it. In fact, some of the designs out there are pretty stylish! On that note, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite items from various bands. Check it out right here. The Maine / Yin Yang Crop – $24.99 (~£15)Credit: 8123 Store
We’re loving just how stylish this piece that The Maine had on their Acoustic Evening tour is. For those of us who were unable to attend the tour and grab a shirt, it’s now thankfully also available on their merch store. Crop tops are all the rage, and now that the weather’s slightly better it’s the perfect time to be rocking one of these. Sleeping With Sirens / Americana Tee – $20 (~£12)Credit: Sleeping With Sirens Merch Store
Tie-dye has been making a comeback in recent years, and it’s no longer just associated with hippies. There are so many different colours and patterns you can choose from. A handful of bands have resorted to multi-coloured shirts, but we really like Sleeping With Sirens‘ take on the tie-dye trend, as they’re also combining it with the flag print trend that’s been hanging around for a few years. Kids In Glass Houses / Varsity Jacket – £35Credit: KIGH Bigcartel
Varsity jackets are typically worn by team sports players who are representing their school/ college/ university. Now you don’t even have to play a team sport to wear one! These jackets are comfy and look great, and they’d be perfect for those chilly nights. We stumbled upon these jackets by Kids In Glass Houses, which are available in red and navy blue – but act quick they’re both very close to selling out! While She Sleeps / Pentagram Acid Wash – £20Credit: While She Sleeps Merch Store
Here’s another prime example of the tie-dye taking the world by storm! Here’s a slightly different take by While She Sleeps. It’s got a darker undertone compared to our previous example by Sleeping With Sirens. This acid wash design is hand dyed and limited to only 150 pieces – so grab them fast! Pierce The Veil / Sleeveless Denim Vest – $55 (~£33)Credit: Pierce The Veil Merch Store
We love vests, especially this sleeveless denim vest by Pierce The Veil. It’s got a small patch on the left breast and a massive one covering the back. There are so many different ways you could style this, and it would be the perfect way to complete a look as it brings in a stronger, more punk vibe to the outfit. The Summer Set / Custom Wrapped Wayfarer Sunglasses – $8 (~£5)Credit: The Summer Set MerchNow
Accessories have the ability to complete an outfit! Especially now that the sun’s out shining bright, it’s best to protect our eyes! We’ve discovered these ultra cool wayfarers by The Summer Set. These are white with stylish colourful triangle prints on the legs. The great thing about this pair is they look awesome, but they’re also super affordable; they’re only $8 a piece (that amounts up to only £5!) We Are The In Crowd / Friendship Bracelets – $7 (~£4)Credit: We Are The In Crowd MerchNow
Speaking of accessories, here’s another one we’ve come across. Friendship bracelets are cool, as they provide a special bond between you and your best friend. If one thing you and your BFF have in common is your love for We Are The In Crowd, then this would be perfect for you! These friendship bracelets read out “WEIRD” and “WATIC” and are only $7 (approx. £4) a pair, can you say bargain?! There you have it folks, seven of our favourites! Who said merch is boring? Do you know of any other bands with cool designs that you love rocking? Send your favourites our way, we’d love to know what you think!
