How to Style a Graphic Tee

5 Ways to Style a Graphic Tee

Timeless, versatile and affordable, graphic tees are a great staple to keep in your closet. Whether you dress them up or down, these comfy shirts are a fun way to express your personality to everyone you meet by showcasing your favorite brands, slogans or designs. Here are our five favorite ways to style your favorite graphic tee to suit (almost) any occasion.  

1. Under a blazer

Add a unique pop to your favorite professional duds by wearing a graphic tee under a blazer. Pair your graphic tee and blazer with the rest of a suit for an edgy business casual look for the workweek, or with your favorite pair of jeans or jean shorts for a laid back but polished vibe while shopping or catching up with friends.

2. With a skirt and heels

Wear your favorite graphic tee with a girly skirt and heels, platforms or your other favorite fancy shoes for a high/low fashion statement. Tuck the shirt into the waistband of your skirt, or tie it up for a more casual touch. You can choose a pencil skirt for a more structured outfit, a mini skirt for a night out, or a flowy a-line skirt for a feminine touch – the possibilities to make this classic outfit combo your own are endless. 

3. With your favorite leggings or biker shorts

Jump on the athleisure trend and wear a loose-fitting graphic tee over your comfiest bike shorts or stretchy leggings. Whether you’re hitting the gym, wandering through the grocery store or just curling up on the couch, you’ll be cozy and chic all day long. Wear this outfit with your favorite sporty sandals or sneakers for ultimate comfort, or slip on flats or boots for a girly twist.

4. Under a jumpsuit or overalls 

Cover up your graphic tee with a jumpsuit or overalls for an effortless statement outfit. Wear the straps on your overalls low, or keep one strap unsnapped to show off more of your tee. You can also roll up or tie up your graphic tee if you want to show a little skin in a playful way. If you’re feeling super retro, you can also add a fanny pack to complete a totally 90’s look.

5. Tucked into your favorite jeans or flared pants

Who says you can’t be comfy and polished? Tucking your favorite graphic tee into your favorite jeans or pants is an easy trick to add structure to a more casual outfit. Pair your tee with skinny jeans and a colorful belt for a timeless and flattering look, or tuck your tee into a pair of flared culottes or paper bag pants for a comfy outfit that is perfect for a casual friday or grabbing brunch with the girls. Don’t forget to add your favorite statement jewelry and a denim jacket or cardigan to complete your look.
