What to Wear With a Novelty Tee in the Spring

What to Wear With a Novelty Tee in the Spring

Novelty tees can be seen as a little kitschy, but I believe they were designed for ease of wear and ultimate cuteness – especially in the spring!

When The Home T reached out and offered one of their “insanely soft shirts,” I couldn’t pass up the opportunity – especially when I noticed this one with my home state on the front. I’ve been wanting a tee like this for quite some time, and the charcoal gray is perfect to pair with a plethora of outfits. I knew this piece would be ideal for my trip to Staunton, Virginia. Obviously, I’m pretty proud of my state, and I love showing that off! Even though I was road-tripping to a town I’d never visited, I didn’t feel like a tourist at all. I actually styled this top two ways in the same day, and loved that it was incredibly versatile. Since I only got photos in this particular outfit, would you all like for me to share the other way I wore it?

Why are novelty tees so great in the spring, you might ask? The answer is simple: layering!

I’m a massive fan of easy layering and lots of outfit options. The more use I can get out of one piece, the better. So when it comes to novelty tees, it’s a massive bonus if I can wear them numerous ways. I styled this particular VA shirt with a denim jacket, black pants, and a pair of sneakers – then transformed it halfway through the day by switching to a denim mini skirt and longline cardigan with the same sneakers. I can also see myself wearing the same tee knotted in the front with cutoff shorts and a blazer on a warmer day. There are so many options!

    I love novelty tees but always feel like I need to wear pants with them and I hate wearing pants, haha. A jean skirt is a good idea – I’d love to see more options too!

    The denim mini could not be cuter with the white converse! I am a sucker for a cute graphic tee as well, especially when they are so soft!

    I think you styled this novelty Home T perfectly. For some reason it goes so well with a pair of Converse sneakers. I would need this tee for California, Georgia and Florida.

    This look is GORGEOUS. I also love the T-Shirt you have one and would love it for PA/NY for myself! Pairing it with the denim shirt (P.S. I NEED this) and those comfy shoes is definitely a look you can wear for all the things. Thank you for sharing!

    You seriously have the best style. I have a few novelty tees and graphic tees that I haven’t worn because I don’t know how to style them in a way that’s not with jeans and sneakers. Thanks for the inspo!

    I’ve always been a sucker for novelty tees or even just a plain logo tee. They look so chic and perfect with a pair of skinny jeans or mom jeans!
