It is no secret that I am graphic tee crazy. Something about the ease of being able to throw on a comfy t-shirt and still look cute and put together with little to no effort, really gets me going. I am a fairly minimalistic type gal when it comes to style on a daily basis, so a graphic tee is a go to for me. You will notice that we carry some higher end graphic tee and tank lines, for example Bandit Brand and Brokedown Clothing. Both of these lines are 100% made in the USA, which I love, but the quality of these tee's and tanks are what seals the deal for me. Brokedown's tanks are so soft, and are prewashed so they don't shrink, while bandit brand has a distressed fitted tee line that is so comfortable and flattering in all the right places, along with a high low tank that looks good on EVERYONE. Both of these brands stand behind quality and their tee's hold up so well. For me the "splurge" on one of these tees, is well worth it because I get years, literally years, of wear out of the items.
So, today, I am going to tell you about three different ways that I like to style my favorite graphic tees.
Style #1- Casual
And when I say casual I mean it. Throw on your graphic tee with your favorite pair of jeans, your comfy sneakers, throw your hair in a messy bun and hit the road.
My go to jeans and sneakers for this look are my favorite distressed boyfriend jeans, and my converse. This look is great for brunch with friends and a day of shopping, running errands, or watching your kids soccer game. You are sure to be comfortable and cute in this style, without looking over dressed.
Style #2- Dressed up
Now, normally when someone says graphic tee, you don't think "dressed up". But, there is no reason just because a shirt has words or pictures on it that it can not be part of a dressed up look.
Pair a graphic tee or tank with booties, colored skinnies, and a cardigan for you workday. Or pair it with your favorite leather jacket, denim skirt, and black heels for a night on the town.
The best thing about wearing a graphic tee to date night- plenty of room for activities. And by activities I mean food and drink. Surely I am not the only one who plans date night around what we are going to eat?
Style #3- Funky
This is a look you will see a lot at Hippie Alice. I love to take a graphic tee as the focal piece for my outfit and transform it in a fun way. Whether that be adding a duster and cowboy boots, or tying up over a body con dress with my favorite strappy heels. A graphic tee is a versatile piece that is a great way to showcase your "style". Some of my favorite ways to see a graphic tees styled are with a pair of printed bell bottoms, with a bandana tied around the neck, or with a denim jacket and heavy jewelry. You can't go wrong with any of these options!
Bottom line- Don't be afraid to mix styles, and patterns. Matchy-matchy is a thing of the past, and I for one hope it stays there. Remember- fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.
