Graphic tees are a basic item in any wardrobe. They’re versatile, easy to pair with other pieces of clothing, and they go with everything. But while they’re great for layering and wearing under blazers or cardigans, their best quality is that they can also be worn as the main piece of your outfit—and look good doing so! Here are a few simple ways you can style graphic tees into different outfits for different occasions:
The Classic Jeans and a T-shirt
The classic jeans and a T-shirt outfit is not just the go-to outfit of every hipster. It’s also a great way to look casual but put together. The key is to find the right pair of jeans that fits you well and looks good on you. In terms of t-shirts, there are so many different options out there that you can definitely find one in your favourite colour or style that will work with your wardrobe. While this outfit could be dressed up with some heels or dressy shoes, it’s best worn as an everyday look because it’s so easy to style!
Wear your graphic tee paired with a structured blazer or jacket
A graphic tee can be a little slouchy, so if you want to keep your look pulled together and polished, pair it with a structured blazer. This combination gives the tee some structure, while still maintaining its casual feel. It’s a great look for women who are trying to add some fun into their business attire without losing their edge.
To pull off this style:
- Wear either a fitted or oversized blazer in any color that contrasts with the graphic tee.
- Make sure both pieces are clean and fitted properly; otherwise they’ll look too sloppy!
Wear your graphic tee with a pencil skirt
When looking to pair your graphic tee with other pieces of clothing, you want to keep in mind that it’s a little out there and might be better off paired with something that’s more subdued. A classic pencil skirt is a great choice for this; it’s an office-friendly look that can be dressed up or down depending on what else you wear with it.
Alternatively, try pairing your graphic tee with over the knee boots for a more dressed up look—it’ll take away some of the casual edge while still being fun! For those who want to go even further, throw on your favourite sneakers for an even more casual vibe.
For those who are looking for a preppy look, pairing your graphic tee with pleated mini skirts and cardigans will do just fine—it’ll give off vibes of being fashionable while still keeping things simple. If lace tops aren’t really your thing, then simply wear whatever top makes you feel comfortable so long as it goes well with what else is going on around here (and don’t forget about accessories!).
Wear your graphic tee with faux leather leggings
If you’re looking for a way to wear a graphic tee but want to look slightly more put together, go with faux leather leggings. They’re super trendy right now and you can find them in all different colors, patterns, and fabrics (faux leather being one of them). You can pair these with any shoe in your closet and they will instantly elevate even the most casual outfit.
Faux leather leggings are perfect for wearing on nights out with friends or an important meeting at work because they give off just enough edge without going over-the-top formal. Pairing them with an oversized graphic tee gives off an effortless vibe that says “I just threw this on without giving it much thought because I like how it looks!” This is my favorite combination when I have somewhere to be after work because it looks pulled together but still casual enough that no one will think twice about what time we arrived there
Coupled with distressed shorts
Distressed shorts are a great way to show off your graphic tee, and they can be worn in many different ways. They can be paired with sneakers, heels or sandals and look good either way. You could also opt for a belt or leave it out entirely: either way will work! If you want a more casual look, pair distressed shorts with denim jackets—or just throw on some chunky jewelry for an extra dose of personality.
As with any trend-related fashion statement, these ideas are just suggestions based on what’s been popular lately. If your style is more classic or contemporary, feel free to mix up how you wear distressed denim shorts—the sky’s the limit!
Oversized graphic tee worn as a dress
Oversized t-shirt dresses are a great way to make a graphic tee your go-to outfit. If you want to go for something more polished, pair the dress with heels and jewelry.
You can also try other ways of styling your oversized t-shirt dress:
- Wear shorts (or leggings) under the dress to give yourself more coverage in the back area.
- Put on sneakers instead of heels if you want something more casual and comfortable.
Wear a jacket or cardigan over the dress if you want to keep warm. You can also try wearing your t-shirt dress with another layer on top or underneath it. For example, try pairing it with a crop top or high neckline shirt for a totally different look.
