Lately, I have been living in graphic tees. I only let myself stay in pajamas or lounge clothes one day a week, and the other days I force myself to do my hair and get dressed (makeup optional). Graphic tees are an essential part of my wardrobe, they are so comfortable but can be worn a lot of different ways. Here are 5 ways to style a graphic t-shirt from super casual to dressed up for date night.
5 Ways To Style A Graphic T-Shirt
Even when we aren’t stuck inside I wear graphic t-shirts all the time. For these looks, I am wearing a cocktail graphic tee, but it can be anything! Here are some of my favorite graphic t-shirts.
Let’s start super casual and work our way up to dressy.
1. Joggers + Denim Jacket
This look is definitely quarantine approved. It’s super casual and definitely comfy but you still look put together. Just simply add a front tuck into your favorite joggers, throw on a well loved-denim jacket and a hat and you are good to go. You can run to the grocery store or watch Netflix
2. Skinny Jeans + Sneakers
A slightly more dressed up look, but still very casual. This is a very classic graphic tee look. I front tucked the tee again and added some sneakers and skinny jeans. The big callout here is don’t be afraid to mix patterns. The cheetah print headband adds more flair and complements the shirt nicely.
3. High Waisted Jeans + Statement Earrings
Another denim look but I would totally wear this look to work or to lunch with friends. Just by tucking in the tee to a set of high-waisted jeans and it makes a big difference. It instantly feels more styled and pair that with a loafer and a statement earring and you are good to go.
4. White Jeans
An all-white outfit is one of my favorite Spring/Summer looks. I know it’s scary but it looks so chic. This would be the perfect look for a patio brunch in the warmer months. I also opted for a low heel sandal in a fun color to really add some contrast to the look.
And, of course, a front tuck!
5. Bold Skirt
Going back to print mixing, this is a great example of mixing to prints. Since the stripes on the skirt are so large the smaller pattern of the graphic tee isn’t too overwhelming. And even though the colors don’t match they complement each other nicely and pair well together.
Because the look is so bold, I wanted to keep it simple with gold hoops and nude heels.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to styling a graphic tee. If you had an oversized graphic tee you could knot it on the side with high waisted jeans or leggings. Which of these five looks is your fave? Let me know in the comments below!
