The Beauty of the Graphic Tee

Why yes, you can dress up a graphic tee.

Don’t get confused: graphic tees are casual by nature. However, there’s an abundance of ways to style them. Casual is just one of the options, but I love dressing up a good ol’ graphic tee. This bad boy costs less than $11 and is comfy as can be. The material is soft and flexible, not that harsh t-shirt fabric that is often associated with classic tees.

I used to assume that going into my 20’s meant I had to say goodbye to graphic tees and crop tops. Not so. I’ve just adjusted the style of graphic tees and crop tops as I’ve gotten older. Since this top is a Gucci dupe, I felt as though it was “stylish” enough to wear with my high-waisted palazzo pants I’ve literally been living in lately. Keep reading to see more of why I love graphic tees.

Band tees were my absolute jam in middle and high school, and even into my adult years I find myself reaching over and over for my worn t-shirts with Demi Lovato and MAX on the front. However, for a day of shopping or a date night with my fiancé, I tend to gravitate towards a more fitted and fashionable option. There’s something so simplistic and simple about graphic tees, yet they’re endlessly versatile. I can wear this top just as well with my “fancy pants” as I can with cutoff shorts and sneakers. You could even pair it with a cute skirt for weekend brunch or a nicer event.

Since I adore graphic tees with such a passion, I decided to round up some of my favorites for you!

    Seriously, NOTHING beats a good graphic tee! I absolutely adore how you paired it with the dressier pants and the yellow purse to bring out the colors in the shirt. It also looks like your shooting location is identical to the flower on the shirt! Absolutely stunning.

    I still totally adore graphic tees, but I’ve stayed away from them lately and now I need to go back! The way you styled this one with the palazzo pants is amaaazing and so cute! I love finding the fine line between dressy and casual and this is perfect!

    I practically LIVE in graphic tees when I’m just at home, or running errands, but I’ve never looked this good in any of them before! 😍 Thank you for sharing ways to dress up this clothing staple of mine, as I do have so many that I love, and would like to wear more than just my jeans with them 😂

    This is a cute look! I have a ton of nerdy and nostalgic tees and love to wear a bandanna scarf, jeans, and cuff bracelets to give it a rockabilly vibe! I like all of your coffee picks!
