Remember when t-shirts were only for sleeping or lounging? Thank goodness that times have changed! The versatility of a tee makes it one of my favorite staple pieces in my closet!
I went ahead and styled 8 of our tees, 8 different ways in hopes that you might find a new way to style one of your own tees!
WIDE LEG PANTS--I know not everyone is comfortable in them, but if you are, I love pairing them with a graphic tee! Bonus--these wide leg pants feel like pajama pants ;)

Denim skirt, graphic tee and sneakers--I love this combo! A denim skirt is a great way to elevate a tee, but the sneakers keep it grounded.

CUTOFF DENIM-- This is like my Saturday summer uniform. A graphic tee and cutoffs with sneakers is a perfect outfit for just about anything that might be spontaneously thrown at you for your summer Saturday activities with friends!

A blazer with a graphic tee is one of my favorite combos. The blazer adds structure and sophistication to an otherwise simple look. I paired it with flats, but you could elevate it even more by adding heels!

This is one of my favorite looks. I love anything that's a little unexpected. This high-waisted skirt is a perfect addition to a graphic tee. I added a necklace and a pair of wedges to dress it up a little more!

OVERALLS--when it comes to graphic tees and overalls, I'm a little bit more picky. I felt like this tee in particular worked really well since the words are repeated, so there's no question as to what the tee says. I threw it on with a pair of Birkenstocks.

This is probably my favorite look and the most easy for me. High-waisted comfy dad jeans, a pair of my favorite flats and a bandana. I love how much a bandana can add to an outfit.

I love an oversized cardigan with a graphic tee. It's easy and a perfect all year round. Swap out the white denim for shorts on a warmer day!

TIPS & TRICKS
A few things to keep in mind while styling a graphic tee:
1. I like to always think about what's unexpected and "out there" a little bit. (ie. skirts with sneakers, earrings and jewelry with a graphic tee, etc.)
2. Use bandanas in your hair, around your neck, as a belt or on your bag!
3. Roll your sleeves on your shirt to make it more feminine.
4. Tuck your shirts-- whether it's all the way, or just a front tuck.
5. Don't forget that it's also TOTALLY acceptable to wear your tees with leggings, sweatshirts or cardigans, sneakers, no make up and hair up. That's the beauty of a graphic tee and it's versatility!
