Style Tips: Dressing Up Your Basic Graphic Tee
Graphic tees are making a bit of a comeback, so you should expect to see them more than you already do. Whatever graphic you like, make sure you’re styling the shirt with more than just jeans and a pair of sneakers. I mean, do that if you want, it works, but try to have some more fun with them. It’s a casual piece that is so versatile and can be a lot more fun than it seems. Here are a few style tips on how to wear graphic tees in a way that is definitely not boring.
Graphic tees and heels are a match made in heaven. Make the look more interesting by adding cool heels and a leather jacket. It’s a little bit more dressed up without being too over the top.
Another way to make a tee and jeans combo more fun: add a long trench and cuff the jeans to show off sneakers. With a glam bag and some pretty jewelry, this easy look is perfect for so many different occasions.
Add one super luxe clothing item to your graphic tee and jeans to look a little bit more ~chic. A velvet jacket/blazer like this one is a great option.
Stay comfortable in a cute outfit by pairing your graphic tee with a fun cardigan, like something with oversized polka dots. Interesting accessories, like bright sunglasses, add to the look.
Ankle boots can take a jeans and tee combo and make it instantly a little more dressed up. Pick ankle length jeans or cuff yours to really show off the boots.
Ripped, loose jeans are also having a moment, so why not wear them with a graphic tee? To keep this from being too casual, front tuck the shirt and add a pair of heels.
Cold? Layer your graphic tee over a turtleneck to stay cozy and look seriously adorable. Bonus points if you have a cute hat to put on too.
Get in on the fishnet trend with your graphic tee. Pull the fishnets high, then knot your tee into almost a crop top to show off the waistband of the tights. Very Tumblr chic.
Get your denim shorts ready for warmer weather by wearing them over tights. A graphic tee and colorful cardigan keep the look easy and comfortable, while knit socks and boots keep you warm.
Do something a little bit more daring – wear a graphic tee that’s long/big enough to be basically a dress with a pair of thigh-high boots.
Accessories can change your whole look – knee-high boots and a Panama hat keep jeans and a t-shirt looking more on the chic side. Dress up your tee a bit by tucking it into a midi skirt. A long jacket or cardigan with ankle boots keeps this appropriate for winter weather.
Keep things interesting and layer your graphic tee under a thin-straped dress, whether it’s velvet, a slip dress, or just something basic.
Add an unexpected piece, like a leopard jacket, to make your look stand out. Red lipstick and a nice bag make this look chic.
Tuck your tee into high-waist fit flare jeans with ankle boots or heels. So many trends, but this still manages to look extremely cool.
