how to wear a graphic tee

it’s memorial day weekend, and what says summer more than the graphic tee.  they’re just fun, and let’s face it, we continue to need some fun in our lives.  what i love about the graphic tee is that they literally go with anything:  jeans, shorts, or pants.  dress them up, or dress them down—there are endless ways in which you can pull one off.  because  it’s Sunday, i raided the archives and pulled out four of my favorite outfits from the past year styling graphic tees.  in addition, i rounded up my 10 favorite graphic tees for this season.  so sit back and relax:  we’re talking how to wear a graphic tee on the blog today. 

with a sweater 

graphic tees go with anything, literally.  i’ve paired mine today with a pair of girlfriend jeans and an equally fun sweater.  it’s transition weather here, so layering is important.  but depending on where you are, you may go sans sweater and, say, a pair of ankle jeans.  or bootcut.  or shorts.  or whatever really.  in a moment when fun can be hard to come by, remember, it’s the little things in life.  and that’s what a good graphic tee is really.

with a blazer 

since it was a long day going from the theater to a soiree, i wanted to dress chic but comfortable. so i chose a pair of high-rise jeans and a graphic tee. as i mentioned yesterday, fall days can be warm and evenings cool.  that’s why it’s all about the layering.  check out this fun tweed blazer.

with linen pants 

what did i wear to Atlanta? something comfy and easy to pull off and back on again. cropped green linen pants should do the trick along with a graphic tee  with a pop of yellow. and we all know how departments stores blast the air conditioner during these hot summer months. so a ruffled denim jacket is a must. suede yellow sandals tie back to the tee and are easy to slip on and off. which leaves a bucket bag in a neutral shade and long strap that converts to a crossbody bag if i need to shop hands-free.

just for fun

today’s outfit is all about casual comfort. favorite outfits are like comfort food to me and y’all know i love a graphic tee! a few weeks ago, i wrote about how to style a graphic tee. this graphic tee (old similar here) sets the stage with its pink elephants. but i  like to elevate my look by pairing it with something like a blazer or cardigan.  so today i couldn’t resist pairing it with a navy sweater blazer (old similar here) with pink piping.

  1. I have to admit I haven’t worn graphic T-shirts since the 90s when we were franchisees with The Body Shop Canada. The Tee was our way of indirectly promoting ideas. I am in my 70s and 5 foot 1 inch tall. Can you suggest a Tee that wouldn’t overwhelm me? Talbots Petites fit me well. Gosh, I have missed shopping in a store with a door, during this COVID 19 isolation. Anyway, I love your blog and your videos. M

    I love it when you do a fun post like this. I live in a small town so we probably wear more graphic tees than you would in a city setting. People work on shrimp boats, the lumberyard, farming etc so dressing up is not something we do a lot of here.
    My favorite is the pink elephant tee. That jacket is so perfect with that tee.
    Thanks for being here and lifting our spirits at this time. Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
