Hey you! This week is about tips for styling graphic tees! There is a reason why the graphic tee trend is so popular and it is never going anywhere. You can wear a graphic tee every day of the year and it can look different every time! There are so many ways you can dress it up or down. Graphic tees are not really an essential for my closet but I picked up a few recently that I really love and wanted to play around with styling them for the spring season. If you really like these looks and the tips that I give please don’t forget to subscribe to the Style Firm! I will be doing a lot more style tips for spring and you don’t want to miss the looks I have planned 🙂
I don’t have a cool name for any of these looks but when I paired this outfit together I immediately thought of wearing it to brunch or a casual dinner out on the patio. I love dressing up ripped shorts or jeans with a blazer so this was a good way to elevate the graphic tee and what better way to elevate it even further by wearing nude block heels? This is a great way to take a basic t-shirt and shorts and make it sophisticated for a date or hanging out with your girlfriends. Or maybe you just want to walk into a bar by yourself like a boss and grab a drink. If you want to look casual, edgy and chic at the same time then you can’t go wrong with this look. The look can also be achieved with a statement jacket or cardigan.
What I love the most about this look (aside from MJ RIP lol) are these pants! I see these pants in every store for around $30 but I’m so glad I was able to find them at my favorite consignment shop for under $10! Cropped pants are great for styling with graphic tees in spring and summer whenever you get bored with denim. I wanted to be a little playful and not so matchy so I decided to pair these with some floral gucci lookalikes that I ordered from Nasty Gal last year. If you are looking for a laid back casual but not boring way to incorporate a graphic tee then this is the way to go but don’t be afraid to take it further by wearing bright colored printed pants or bicycle shorts (thanks to Kanye).
I think out of the 3 looks this one is my favorite. Maybe it’s because of the Stranger Things tee (if you have watched both seasons then you get it and for that I thank you lol). With this look I wanted to take a tee and jeans and elevate it by using accessories. The cat eye sunnies are from Asos (unfortunately that pair is sold out but any pair of cat eye sunnies will work with this combo). I paired this outfit with a taupe colored mini bag from Rebecca Minkoff which is one of my favorite bags to carry in the spring and summer because I can carry it crossbody with the strap or just use the handles. I thought it would be fun to pull out my big straw hat for this look to give it a different vibe. The block heels give it some sophistication and I believe there is something about pairing a men’s tee with some heels, it really is the perfect balance. If you are looking to emulate this outfit feel free to use whatever accessories you like and truly make it your own. There is no right or wrong answer 🙂
