We all know that fashion is more than just fabric on skin but more-so a statement and self-expression that doesn’t need words. This week’s Fashionisto captured my attention because of his stunning Bodega graphic tee. For those of you unfamiliar with Bodega, they are based out of Boston and their apparel complements their urban blog. Before even speaking to him, I already knew he was a hip-hop enthusiast with a trendy style. He cleaned up the graphic tee with a pair of navy blue slim pants, which helped bring out his polka-dotted hat.
I love his casual yet clean look, and this “No Sleep ‘Til” tee from Brooklyn Industries can serve as your statement piece. You can take a hint from today’s Fashionisto and pair it with these Levi Brand Jeans and this 5-panel hat from HUF. To complete the look add a pair of Vans or Converse.
Fashionistas can also engage in the statement graphic tee trend with this Dove T-shirt from Topshop via Nordstrom. Add these black high-rise skinny jeans from American Eagle Outfitters and the tee can be either untucked or half tucked with one of these belts from Target. You can either go for the black monochrome look, and pair it with a black belt or break up the dark colors with the brown belt. No matter which you choose, you should add these leather Jeffrey Campbell booties from Urban Outfitters, which come in both black and brown.
Hint: Fashionistas and Fashionistos, simply treat the graphic tee like a nice top and do not be afraid to dress it up. Be weary of color clashes and when in doubt, go monochrome. Fashion is about statements. What do you want your style to say?
