How to Style Band Tees

Let’s talk about band tees. While the basic T-shirt can be traced back to the early 1900s, graphic tees, including band tees, didn’t become popular until the 1960s. They were first introduced by a Mill Valley, California-based company called Monster Company, which started screen-printing tees featuring Grateful Dead art and pro-marijuana counterculture designs.

Today, you can find T-shirts for any band. One of the reasons we love band tees is because they are so easy to style. Here are some of our favorite band tee looks!

The Casual Look

We’re starting strong with a casual look that can be altered for any season. For summer, try French-tucking this colorful Janis Joplin Psychedelic Navy Heather T-Shirt ($25.95, shop here) into destructed boyfriend jeans, then slip on some all-white Vans ($50, shop here). Add a few dainty gold chains, and you’re ready to face the day.

To warm this outfit up for the cooler months, simply throw on your favorite chunky cardigan.

The Stylish Look

A worn-in band tee with a dainty, feminine skirt is the kind of juxtaposition we live for. For warmer months, try pairing this Forest In Utero Nirvana T-Shirt ($24.99, shop here) with an above-the-knee floral-print wrap skirt and some Club C 85 Model Vintage Reeboks ($75, shop here).

For fall and winter, pair this tee with a floral maxi skirt, Dr. Martens ($150, shop here), and an oversized destructed denim jacket.

The “Dressier” Look

If you want to style a band tee for a dressier occasion, try pairing it with a blazer!

This Washed Led Zeppelin Tee ($34, shop here) would look fantastic with an oversized black blazer with a delicate pattern such as houndstooth or plaid. If you like the monochrome look, pair it with black trousers or jeans.
