How to Style Graphic Tees

There’s something undoubtedly cool about a graphic tee. Whether you’re representing your favorite band, TV show, or retro movie, a graphic tee adds a carefree air to any ensemble. But the best part? There are about a million ways to wear one. Today, we’ll break down our five favorite ways to style a graphic tee that’ll work for any occasion.

Graphic Tee and Blue Jeans

You can never go wrong with a classic! The most popular way to wear a graphic tee is with your favorite pair of denim. Whether they’re ripped, skinny, flared, or mom jeans, they’ll be sure to complement your shirt beautifully. Since jeans are a bulkier material, tucking your shirt at the waistline will give your silhouette more dimension.

Though it may seem strange to pair such a casual top with sophisticated bottoms, the result is an outfit that screams “model off-duty.” Wearing a graphic tee with a great pair of trousers (we prefer high-waisted) looks complex and deeply thought out, when, in reality, it didn’t take long to put together at all! If this look is a little too dressed-up for your occasion, you can finish it off with a pair of sneakers and a heavy denim jacket.

Graphic Tee Over a Maxi

Balancing femininity and masculinity is as simple as pairing your favorite bodycon maxi dress with an oversized graphic tee! The pieces emit a cool juxtaposition that, depending on your accessories, can be worn day or night. If you want to add some dimension, tie a string or thin belt around your waist (over the shirt) and pull on the top of the tee to replicate a “tucked-in” look.

Graphic Tee Over a Turtleneck

A graphic tee can be rocked year-round when worn over a turtleneck! To do this look justice, match your turtleneck and tee combo with a pair of distressed jeans and casual shoes. Though the look gives off skater vibes on its own, you can make it a little edgier by tucking in the tee at the waistline and cinching it off with a chunky leather belt. Swap out the sneakers for a pair of combat boots, and you’re ready for the mosh pit!

Graphic Tee and Linen Pants

Now, this is farmer’s market chic! Nothing beats the earthy feel of a pair of cotton or linen pants: They’re easy to slip on, breathable, and go with every style of top, including a graphic tee! Linen pants add a breezy aura to your T-shirt that a pair of jeans just can’t do! Since this outfit may look a bit heavy (especially if both pieces are on the larger side), accessorize with delicate touches like dainty jewelry, strappy sandals, or a mini handbag.
