Book Lovers Unite! 20 Cool Tees and Accessories from Out of Print Clothing

I am a passionate, lifelong reader, as well as a dedicated style blogger. As a result, literary-inspired clothing totally does it for me. It’s a perfect marriage of my two favorite things! Out of Print Clothing is my go-to stop for literary-inspired clothes and accessories. (Apparently Emma Watson agrees. Further proof that we should be best friends.)

A few years ago, as I was finishing up nursing my son, I realized I had almost NO T-shirts. I owned button-ups galore (a nursing essential), but somehow over the course of pregnancy and nursing, any and all tees had disappeared from my closet into the ether. I never wanted to see my button-ups again, so I went on a crazy T-shirt buying rampage. I stumbled upon Out of Print Clothing and promptly snapped up several tees for myself. And thus a fabulous long-term relationship was born.

I’ve gathered some of my favorite tees and accessories from Out of Print for this post. Because I am a crazy person, I feel like I need to apologize to the books that didn’t get chosen. I’m sorry, Other Books! I still love you!

  • Great Gatsby Tee 2 of 21
    Great Gatsby Tee

    I recently reread The Great Gatsby (my copy even has this cover!). I had forgotten what a fantastic book it is. I have never forgotten, however, that Daisy's voice is full of money. That F. Scott, man. His words sure stick.

    Banned Books Week was only a few weeks ago, so I have banned books on the brain! This tote makes a great statement with the blacked out titles.

    I can think of 8 people off the top of my head to whom I could give this one as a gift. It's one of those books that resonates.

    Wuthering Heights Tee

    I have such conflicted feelings about this book (they're both so unlikeable) but I think this shirt is gorgeous.

    I haven't seen a library card in YEARS, which makes this pouch all the more wonderfully nostalgic.

  • Sherlock Tee 12 of 21
    Sherlock Tee

    For Christmas last year I got my brother The Complete Sherlock Holmes. A couple weeks later, I saw it laying on the table and started reading it. I never gave it back. Sherlock is fantastic on both the screen and the page. Well played, A. Conan Doyle.

    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn Tee

    Did anyone else take a look at this book and just think, "Oh heavens, this is going to take a while." And then 13 hours later you're like, "Noooo why is it over?!?"

    Another one that has found its way to my closet. How fantastic is that lion?

  • Slaughterhouse Five eBook Cover 16 of 21
    Slaughterhouse Five eBook Cover

    If I had an eReader, I would absolutely get one of these fantastic covers. They're made by an old bookbindery, so they look and feel like a real book but they've got great cushioning inside to protect your device. Awesome.

  • Friday Night Lights Tee 17 of 21
    Friday Night Lights

    I'll have to admit to never having read this one (it's on my list!) but I AM an ardent Tim Riggins fan. Plus, 10% of your purchase of this tee goes to helping aspiring writers.

  • Jane Eyre Long Sleeve 18 of 21
    Jane Eyre Sweatshirt

    Did you know that Jane Eyre was originally published as an "autobiography?" You have to imagine that most readers would get to the part about the crazy wife locked in the attic and think, "OK, SOMEONE is embellishing a bit here..."

  • Alice in Wonderland Phone Case 19 of 21
    Alice in Wonderland Phone Case

    The Mad Hatter: "Have I gone Mad?"

  • Hamlet Sweatshirt 20 of 21
    Hamlet Sweatshirt

    If I were to wear this, I wonder how many "clever" people I'd get coming up to me reciting "To be, or not to be..."

  • Pigeon Onesie 21 of 21
    Pigeon Onesie

    If we have another kid, we are totally getting this onesie. My boys are huge Mo Willems fans and they'd get such a kick out of it! Check out all the other darling onesies right here.
