Graphic tees are a closet must-have and they are making a comeback in the fashion world. They are perfect for days when you want to look effortlessly chic without putting too much thought into your outfit. With a graphic tee, you never have to compromise on comfort and you’ll never run out of ways to style them.
Like the little black dress or LBD, they are highly versatile. You can dress them up with formal clothing like a blazer or tailored pants, or just pair them with some fitted jeans for a casual look on a night out.
There are a hundred ways you can style a simple graphic tee to achieve the casual vintage style, and here are some ideas to get you started. Spend some time playing around with your accessories too, and you’ll be sure to find a go-to look that includes your favorite graphic tee.
If you’re not ready to stray too far from your comfort zone, you can never go wrong with a graphic tee and a pair of denim jeans. Get a fitting pair of jeans that looks good on you, whether it’s straight cut, flared, skinny jeans or high-waisted, and throw on a graphic tee – you’re set to go. You can even pair your outfit with black boots and ripped jeans to give your outfit a little more edge.
Is there a more appropriate style if you have a vintage punk or rock band graphic shirt? Opt for plaid and checkered bottoms, whether it’s a skirt or pants. Then go all out with some ripped fish nets and some high-cut boots like a pair of Doctor Martens. For a more rugged look, you could even cut the sleeves off or alter the length of the shirt with a pair of scissors for a raw hem.
Pretty in Prep
Who says a graphic tee doesn’t go with a blazer? If you want a preppy look, dress up your graphic tee with a tailored outer piece and a pleated skirt and match it with a cute clutch and a pair of oxfords. You’ll be channeling Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf or Cher Horowitz from Clueless in no time.
Cozy and Casual
Pair your old and comfy graphic tee with your favorite jeans and you’ve got an outfit that’s in style and will keep you feeling great all day. When the weather is a little cooler, match it with a slouchy cardigan or tie a sweater around your waist to keep you feeling warm and cozy. For added comfort, ditch the fancy heels and wear a pair of sneakers instead. If you have a long day ahead of you, your feet will thank you for it.
Channel Maximalism in Your Outfits
In the last few years, minimalism has swept over the world and became a sustainable way of living for many. But if minimalism isn’t for you, then why not go for the maximalism look? Wear your graphic tee with a colorful patterned bottom and add a contrasting bag to complete your look. Some people might find it hard to pull it off but we guarantee that your outfit will definitely make a great fashion statement.
