When most of us think of graphic tees, we think of an old stand by for our blue jeans or a cozy fashion forward addition to our leggings. While those are great ways to wear your tees, I want you to think beyond jeans. I want to show you how to flaunt your favorite image or slogan covered tee with fashion and flare. In fact – my favorite way to wear my graphic tees, is with my skirts and dresses. Sounds a bit odd, I know. But once you see how easy it is to create this look with your own personal touch – I think you will be hooked too!
Go Glam or Go Home
Wear your fav tee for a girls night out or cocktails at that posh new wine bar? YES! Pair your graphic tee with your flowy and feminine skirts and a clutch or small shoulder bag you are good to go. The key here is keeping everything a neutral shade with hints of black or tonal in similar shades, to let the graphic tee be the stand out item.

Casual with a Kick
Love the idea of upping your style level with your graphic tees, but not quite ready to go ‘glam’? How about a compromise. Choose a more casual or refined skirt and a pair it with a tee that has a softer toned graphic tee. This look works especially well with vintage feeling tees. Add some heels and a fab bag and you have just taken your look up a notch.

Prepster Prints Rock Too
Do you row more to the stroke of a sporty canoe? I love, love, love preppy printed graphic tees with my skirts and dresses. I especially enjoy mixing textures, prints, and stripes with this category of tee. Last night I added this anchor tee over a blue striped dress and I personally thought it was super cute! Also try with a solid eyelet skirt or dress or over a small repeat print. I say just have fun with it. Keep your accessories minimal to not make the look too busy and for sure the compliments will come flowing in!
