Doesn't matter how close to home you were but I like the shirt color defense. Take your shirt to the hearing.
I think if you are able to provide a picture that shows your argument and take it to the court, you may have a chance. Or better yet wear the shirt to the court if appropriate!
Sit in the car with the shirt and the seat belt on. Have someone photograph you. If it doesn't stand out in the photo, take the photo with you to court and use it as an exhibit. It isn't worth hiring a lawyer for this, because it will cost you a great deal more than a seat belt ticket (which is zero points on your driving record).
