Happy Wednesday, ladies!  I've received a lot of requests over the past few months for a post on graphic tees.  Well, here it is:  my 2022 Spring best graphic tees edition.

You can't get much more fun and expressive than graphic tees.  From bands to animals to words and phrases, there are just about as many graphic tees as there are personality types.  More, even.

I've done two things today:  First, I've gone through the archives and pulled 5 old outfits featuring a graphic tee.  I've used those outfits as a model to pull together outfits with currently available items.

Second, I"m trying something:  for each outfit, I've put together a budget alternative of similars.

Finally, at the very end of the post, I've rounded up my 10 favorite graphic tees this Spring presented in no particular order.  So, make sure to check them out!

The Summary

  Today's featured item is the graphic tee, styled 5 ways

  The outfits I've modeled are all old, but I've put together similars for each 

  For each outfit, I've put together budget alternatives, a new feature we're trying out

  My top 10 graphic tees for Spring 2022 are at the end of the post, so don't miss them!

The 2022 Spring Best Graphic Tees Edition

1. With a denim shirt

One of the easiest ways to wear a graphic tee is by pairing it with a denim/chambray jacket.  Any wash will work with just about any, if not every graphic tee.  Give it a try.

2. With Linen Pants

Linen pants are an essential Summer item for me and they work perfect with graphic tees.

Banana Republic generally has a great stock of linen pants in a variety of fits and colors, so I always start there when looking for a new pair.

3. With a Tweed Jacket

The not so secret secret about Tweed jackets is that they come in an assortment of beautiful and bright colors---often multi-colors.

And that's why they pair so perfectly with graphic tees---they easily highlight the graphics.

4. With a Denim Jacket

Because, well, there actually is no better pairing than a denim jacket and a graphic tee.

In fact, we just ran a whole post about it, which you can read here.

5. With a Cardigan

Last but not least, pair a graphic tee with a cardigan.

Just like tweed jackets, cardigans come in all varieties of colors and patterns, making them perfect to wear with your graphic tee.

(And I could not resist putting together a retro outfit today.)
