Fashionista Spotlight

This Fashionista’s shirt cracked me up! It’s hard to pass up a Fashionista who can bring a bit of humor into her style and even harder to pass up a fellow Mean Girls fan. A graphic T-shirt like this can take a casual outfit from bland to bam. This T-shirt definitely makes a statement and pairing it with simple pieces lets that statement speak loud and clear. It’s a good idea to style your graphic T-shirt with simple pieces, like jeans and a cardigan, so it doesn’t distract from the focal point of the outfit.
