5 Ways To Style A Graphic Tee
I'm going to let you all in on a little shopping secret of mine; I shop with strategy. When I'm in a dressing room I ask myself "how would I style this?" and if I can't come up with multiple ways to style a piece I'll pass on the item. I also think the more ways you can style an item can help justify paying a little more for quality pieces. That's exactly what happened with this favorite graphic tee of mine, I was willing to pay a little more because it hit 3 major boxes for me: it was a quality tee, I love the subject matter, and I knew I could style it several ways! I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to style a graphic tee in case you are needing some inspo or have been hesitant to buy a graphic tee of your own!
If you are fortunate to work in a more casual setting, this look is for you!! I've paired my favorite graphic tee with a great pair of black jeans and a black blazer to help balance the fun of the tee. I also paired a more sophisticated slide sandal to pair back to the blazer to bring the whole look together. Grab your most loved tote bag and you're out the door in a way that puts out into the world that you're professional but also you have some personality!
Y'all I wore this look to work today and was so stinking comfortable. When I put this look together I wanted a versatile outfit that could take a gal from the grocery store, to the beach, to the park with the kiddos, to happy hour on the patio with girlfriends without skipping a beat! It's an easy look that takes no time to throw on but makes you feel totally put together and ready to take on whatever your weekend throws your way!!
I love getting to dress up for girls night but if I'm being completely honest, I'm not very good at it! I always seem to miss the mark when my girlfriends pull out their cute little bodysuits, bodycon dresses, and perfectly distressed denim...I own none of these things. My personal style is more fun, feminine, and shows a little less skin than your average girls night look BUT that doesn't mean it has to be matronly or boring! Pair the graphic tee that makes you feel like a bad ass babe with a gorgeous suede jacket, your favorite pair of denim, and a fun pump for the perfect girls night look that can go wherever the night does!
Coffee Shop Sippin:
I don't know about you guys but there are times when I just want to put in minimal effort and go relax at a coffee shop or even go for a walk to grab a coffee and lazily meander on the weekends. This is the look for that a la the graphic tee! You might notice that the base here can easily go from a morning at the farmers market to a fun impromptu date night or girls night with a switch of a few accessories. Pair your graphic tee with a great pairs of mules (I love a pop of color) and your favorite cardigan as we creep closer to fall. Top it off with your hat of choice to give a fun little flair or rock that second day hair girl!!
Fun & Flirty:
I truly love and would wear all of these looks (if I haven't already) BUT this one by far is the one that speaks best to my personality! Paired here with a flirty animal print silk skirt, a white sneaker, and your favorite denim jacket, this outfit makes me feel like I can take on anything life throws at me and feel great doing it!! I love the idea of mixing something as casual as a graphic tee with something as sexy as a animal print midi for a fun and vivacious look!
