Let’s Get Graphic

I used to associate graphic tees with my late-middle school, early-high school days. That’s when graphic tees consisted of band shirts, screen-printed movie posters, and adolescent quotes and sayings.

As with most trends, I’m glad that graphic tees went away for a bit, and now they are back more stylish and chic as ever. And, with the endless possibilities of how to style them – under a blazer, with a maxi skirt, etc. – graphic tees can be versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

Graphic tee: Old Navy
Leopard belt: Old Navy
 Two-tone flats: Apt. 9, Kohl’s
Graphic tee: Old Navy
Faux leather skirt: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s
Navy quilted purse: Forever 21
Burgundy tights: Forever 21

I picked up both these graphics from Old Navy during their Labor Day sale, and while I anxiously await their arrival, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought as to how I might style them. Both these outfits scream fall to me, with the combination of red and leopard to faux leather details and a mix of burgundy and navy accessories. Both looks have the versatility to be worn day or night, and I look forward to recreating both in the coming months.

Are you a fan of graphic tees? How do you style them?

    We have some really cute graphic t-shirts where I work and I love putting different outfits together with them. I love the "street chic" outfit that you put together, definitely something that I would wear. 🙂 I hope that you are having a great day so far too!

    Old Navy has such great graphic tee's lately- I would have never thought to look there for them, but I love the different ways you styled them here!

    I have to admit – I solely got the J'Adore tee because Ryan always impersonates Charlize Theron in the J'Adore Dior commercials. Lol!

    Thanks, girl! Can't wait to see how you style yours, too.

  12. 9.9.14

    I agree, they've really stepped up their game!

    I bet that is so fun to style the tees – I know I enjoyed that when I worked in retail. Hope you had a great day!

    I'll have to check out Zara – thanks for the tip!

    Right?! I think a red blazer is a staple during the fall months. Hope you had a good day!

    I am also loving the chic resurgence of graphic tees! I just picked up 3 new ones at Old Navy! I couldn't help myself during their sale either! Love that the outfits are all screaming fall, so perfect!
