Turn the graphic tees stocking your shelves to full advantage by creating unexpected, feminine pairings that showcase both your distinctive style and your knowledge on what's on trend. If you've got a tight clothing budget, learning how to work those graphic tees in stylish ways stretches your wardrobe. Tees cover any look from stylish to studious, sexy to super-playful, so what are you waiting for?
Keep it retro. Pair a graphic tee with slim-cut jeans and simple sneaks for a retro-classic look. Add a denim jacket for a collegiate casual effect. This is the simple, basic way to rock a graphic tee.
Cover up the graphic tee with another layer of clothing that complements both the tee and your good fashion sense. Try a denim, leather or cloth vest and button it up just enough to show the tee. If you're looking for a less casual look, showcase your fave cardigan over the tee.
Bling out your shirt with beaucoup de jewelry. Layer on chains, long necklaces and even wrist bangles to add some pizzazz to your graphic tee look, especially when you're playing it simple in a graphic tee and jeans.
Femme up your day by pairing a graphic tee shirt and a flouncy skirt. Look for a skirt that flares out to create movement, and preferably one that's solid, so you don't have competing patterns. If you've got a boxy graphic tee that's unflattering, try wearing it tucked into a high-waisted skirt. Puff the tee out a bit; the skirt will show your girly figure and you'll look super fashion-forward.
Work in cute accessories to boost your style. From shoes to headbands, earrings and scarves, lots of decorative items can add flair to your tee.
