There are so many fun and unique things you can put on a t-shirt. From unique art, to vintage designs and posters – you can go crazy with creativity and make something truly unique and fresh. 

Optical illusions are the new trend in t-shirt designs, with loads of major t-shirt brands hopping on the wagon and join the fun. Optical illusions are fun to look at and fun to wear, and you’ll have fun watching people’s puzzled glances towards you as they try to make sense of the design on your t-shirt. 

Here are some optical illusion t-shirt designs we love: 

Zebra shirt: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/490985141/zebra-t-shirt-organic-organic-ink-made?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=optical+illusion+tee&ref=sr_gallery-1-15

Can you find the zebra? The nice thing about this shirt is how simple and effective it is. It’s not over the top, but it’s a stylish way of playing with optical illusions. 

3D Beatle: 


This 3D beatle shirt is one you want to stare at for ages, until everything comes together. If you’re friends have some 3D glasses you might want to try out wearing them and looking at your t-shirt for the best effect! This design is edgy and cool, and fascinating too! 

Impossible Cube: 


The impossible cube is a classic optical illusion and it’s a favourite amongst people who like figuring these optical illusions out. There is no solution for this, which is half of the fun, the illusion just goes round and round in circles (or squares!).

Graphic illusion: 


This shirt might hurt your eyes a little to look at, but there’s no denying how interesting and mesmerising it is too! It’d be a great choice for a festival or concert, as it’s definitely a conversation starter that’s for sure! 

Skull illusion: 


What do you see… a lady looking in the mirror, or a haunting skull? This design is interesting because it sparks debate and makes people question what they can see. It’s all about interpretation and design! A classic choice, but an interesting one too. 

Rabbit or Duck: 


This is another famous optical illusion… Do you see a rabbit or do you see a duck? For most people, this t-shirt won’t seem like anything special, until you point it out to them – but then that’s half the fun! Watch their confusion as they realise the animal is in fact both!
