A graphic tee is something that most people have in their closet. But it’s also something that can be difficult to style. Graphic tees can border on cheesy and even tacky, depending on what the design is and especially how it is styled. 

If you’re a big fan of the graphic tee, but are worried about making a fashion faux pas, don’t be. All you need are some style tips to guide you in the right direction. Read on to learn how to be able to wear a tee in confidence, no matter what’s emblazoned on the front.

  1. Pair It With a Blazer

There are few combinations better than a blazer and a graphic tee. The structure of the blazer offers a nice juxtaposition to the casual nature of the graphic tee.

There are a few different ways you can complete this look. Pair with a high-waisted skirt, boyfriend jeans, chinos, or even a pair of dressy shorts.

  1. Distressed Denim Shorts

For a more casual and laid-back look, it’s hard to go wrong with a distressed pair of denim shorts. If your graphic tee is darker or more grungy in nature, black or grey shorts with a plaid shirt thrown over the top is a great combination.

If it’s a more girly or light and bright t-shirt style, you may want to opt for lighter denim or even white shorts. No matter what style your tee is, you’ll be able to find a pair of denim shorts to suit it.

  1. Dress Down a Two-Piece Suit

Bright-colored two-piece suits for women are all the rage lately. If you’ve been wanting to try this trend but were worried about seeming too formal or stuffy, then a graphic tee is the perfect way to dress it down. Pair your outfit with a pair of sneakers for extra fashion brownie points.

  1. Oversized With Bicycle Shorts

The slouchy and oversized look is another big trend this year. It’s all about being casual and comfortable, and a larger-sized graphic tee is a perfect way to pull off this look.

Pair with bicycle shorts in whatever color you like. If you can’t find an oversized graphic tee you’re into, you can even create your own shirt design!

  1. With a Girly Skirt

Another great juxtaposition to a graphic tee can be a more feminine and floaty skirt. You can choose floral, retro, or even block color designs.

This outfit would work best with the graphic tee tucked in. Pair the outfit with a chunky chain and some casual sneakers to complete this effortless look.
