The Best Bookish T-shirtsNext Chapter t-shirt
1. Mr Darcy T-shirt
I am a big fan of Caffeine and Curses on Etsy, so you will find multiple t-shirts from them on this list.
This mr Darcy t-shirt is gorgeous, simple but eyecatching. The design is clearly related to pride and prejudice while still being stylish and wearable.
It’s available in several different colours, but I love this black colour. Guaranteed to go with various outfits in your wardrobe, the white outline stands out beautifully against the dark black.
2. Witcher T-shirt
Toss a coin to your Witcher. This t-shirt is so epic! I am absolutely obsessed with the intricate design on the front. It’s a black cotton t-shirt with the design printed in silver metallic ink.
The seller is a star seller with a ton of 5 star reviews. The black colour means it would look good with lots of different outfits. Plus it’s such a cool design – I guarantee any friends will be super jealous.
3. The Hobbit T-shirt
This t-shirt features the Hobbit mountain design on the front with the ‘There and back again’ quote. It’s also available on both black and white.
The t-shirt is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a simple but easily recognisable design. The basic colours and design mean you could wear this with lots of different outfits.
If you’re looking for a comfy tshirt to wear around the house – this would also be a great pick.
4. Morally Grey t-shirt
Dark romance fan? Romantasy lover? Then you need to check out this morally grey t-shirt. The design is absolutely stunning. The detail and the skull is beautiful.
Again, this is available in multiple colours, but black is my favourite. If you have an alternative or gothic style, this t-shirt is perfect. Plus as it’s a neutral colour, you can style it in lots of different ways.
5. Pancake Billys t-shirt
One Last Stop fan? You need to check out this bookish t-shirt! You beat a subtle reference to a book. Something that other One Last Stop fans will recognise.
This Pancake Billys t-shirt is so fun. The artwork is very similar to what I pictured when I read the book. It is also available in white. But I love the soft pink – very Casey Mcquiston.
6. Library Card t-shirt
I swear I have never added an item to my basket so quickly! I loved the cartoon Arthur growing up and this song was a tune!
Bibliofox is another Etsy Shop with tons of adorable bookish t-shirts. I love the fun expression, colours and white background. It would pair perrfectly with colourful skirts or jeans and trainers.
7. If Villain Bad t-shirt
Another Bibliofox t-shirt. I first saw this on Booktok when the amazing XX wore a version in black.
I love the bookish t-shirt. The design is simple and would still look stylish with multiple different outfits. I love this dark forest green but it’s also available in black, white and mauve
8. Sucker for smut t-shirt
For every booktok video, at least 10 comments are asking if it contains spice. If you enjoy romance or books with smut, then check out this t-shirt.
The design is stunning – eyecatching but also cool at the same time. This looks amazing oversizes and layered with shirts either underneath or on top. It’s also available in a gorgeous white or dark grey.
9.Mentally at the bookstore t-shirt
I am always mentally at the bookstore. The design of this t-shirt really stood out to me. The cute pastel colours and girly designs definitely pop.
This t-shrit comes in a bunch of stunning pastel colours and it was hard to choose my favourite. I am obsessed with this pale blue colour.
10. TBR pile t-shirt
This design is from the same Etsy seller as the previous t-shirt – Core Collective. I adore their feminine bookish t-shirts.
This design is beautiful. The pink colours stand out perfectly against the blue. And honestly this statement is so true for me most of the time.
11. Haunting of Hill House t-shirt
I really love this Haunting of Hill House t-shirt and I think many other readers will too. The Haunting of Hill house is a classic. But you don’t often see t-shirts for this classic novel.
The artwork is beautiful and completed by the Etsy shop seller. Again, black is a great colour because it’s easy to wear with many different items. Something about the t-shirt just screams cool to me.
12. Fairytales t-shirt
This made me smile as soon as I saw it. If you’re a fantasy lover, then you need to check out this t-shirt.
The long length would look great layered. And it would also make an adorable pj top to chill in at home. It’s available in a range of colours such as blue, grey and black.
13. Dark Romance t-shirt
Dark romance fan? I’m obsessed with the design of this dark romance book club t-shirt. The long length and slight oversized fit look stylish when layered with a long sleeve top underneath.
It has a vintage, lived in feel that make it perfect for everyday wear. It’s available in a selection of colours.
14. Dragontails t-shirt
Fourth Wing exploded in popularity. And consequently, Etsy has tons of stunning Fourth Wing merch.
This Dragontails t-shirt stood out to me. While there are tons of Basgaith War College t-shirts, this was a bit different. The design of the dragons looks stylish. And this would look amazing paired with simple jeans.
15. Mood Reader t-shirt
This t-shirt made me smile when I saw it. This describes my reading style perfectly.
This t-shirt is available in black, white and mauve. But I adore the lettering on the white t-shirt. It makes the t-shirt pop, but the neutral white is still easy to pair with a variety of outfits.
