Pastel vibes & muscle graphic tees! We actually cut the sleeves off to revive these old tees!
Graphic tees we’re loving:
If we’re on a quest to find something, we know we can’t be the only ones! Lately we’ve been on the search for the perfect graphic tee–we love the cool, relaxed vibe of mixing a casual tee with something dressy like a feminine midi skirt or a polished blazer. But any old graphic tee won’t do! We wondered why so many of the available graphic tees weren’t grabbing us. What is it that makes a perfect graphic tee? Keep scrolling to find out what we discovered, plus our tips on how to pick the perfect graphic tee!
choose a graphic tee with versatile colors A graphic tee with several colors is fun and gives lots of styling options! Floral graphics are typically colorful and are often the perfect thing to pair with something more edgy, like a moto jacket or leather pants. This Mtv tee has a retro vibe, along with bright, spring colors that definitely coordinate with many of my outfits! I had this pink blazer in mind when I bought this tee, but it will also look cool under a denim jacket, bomber jacket, moto jacket…. on and on! choose a graphic tee with cool style details A graphic tee that’s too fitted or boxy can feel boyish. Not a flattering look for us! What I loved about this tee was the soft, drapey cotton material, the dropped shoulder seam, and the cool raw, rolled hem at the sleeve. This Grazie tee is pretty basic, but I was looking for a graphic tee that was long enough to do this cute side knot. The knot is a fun alternative to tucking the tee in, and it creates a creative style detail! choose a graphic tee with a statement you can get behind Everything you wear communicates something about you, and a graphic tee can make that statement loud and clear! If the words on the tee aren’t something I would say in real life, or if the graphic is super rocker chick or not my lifestyle, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing it, no matter how cool the graphic is. I think the popular graphic of huge Rolling Stones lips with a tongue sticking out is fine on other people, but it’s just not me. Recently, I was tempted to buy a tee with a cool graphic, but it was a band that I wasn’t into at all, so I kept looking. Conversely, I might love the band, but not like the graphic. See how tricky this can be? It has to have ALL the elements to make me open my pocketbook lol! I think that a lot of graphic tees have funny or ironic messages, but when I think of actually wearing them, I chicken out! I prefer a subtle message that doesn’t attract too much attention. With this tee I can represent a city that I love! This particular tee can be customized with whatever city you want! So cool!
