STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Graphic Tees

Style Advice of the Week

For some people being fashionable means staying away from basic items. Today’s Fashionisto proves this theory wrong by accessorizing a unique graphic T-shirt. This Fashionisto shows that with the right style, anything can be fashionable.

The graphic T-shirt is easily one of the most comfortable things a college student can wear around campus. Just because it’s comfortable, doesn’t mean it has to look sloppy. This Fashionisto pulls the vibrant colors from his graphic T-shirt together by wearing a unique multi-colored bottle cap belt, a fitted hat and high top sneakers. Some men tend to think that accessorizing is just for the ladies, but taking the time to pick out items to accentuate an article of clothing is always important. Not to mention today’s Fashionisto shows just how simple it can be done!

To take your favorite graphic T-shirt from day to night, add a suit coat or blazer similar to this KENZO sportcoat from Nordstrom. Trade out your high top sneakers for a pair of loafers or oxfords, and try rolling up your pants leg. Rolling up your pants leg creates a more modern and polished look. As the weather gets colder, consider adding a pair of complimentary colored socks.

Graphic T-shirts allow you to remain stylish while also staying true to your own expressive self. They allow you to easily state your opinions, interests, and even sense of humor. So the next time you’re getting ready to hang with a new group of people, don’t be afraid to wear your favorite graphic T-shirt. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when your outfit becomes the topic of conversation.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Graphic Tees

Uncategorized

The clothes we choose to wear say a lot about who we are and, to a degree, define us. They broadcast what we enjoy, appreciate and value. Every top, dress, jacket and ring says something about who you are. But no garment is more identity revealing then the graphic tee. They allow you to show your support, stance, allegiance and devotion to a person, society, group or character. They are a statement stamped across your chest for all to see.

I love this notion of revealing a little part of yourself to a passerby. This week’s Fashionisto, caught my eye with his Johnny Depp tee — half Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean and half Tom Hanson from 21 Jump Street. Before even talking to this fellow collegian, I knew we had something in common — we are both Johnny Depp appreciators. You see, this simple T-Bar tee isn’t just a T-shirt, but a conversation starter!

There are hundreds and thousands or graphic tees to search through. Check out sites like RedBubble and Threadless for fun, unique and controversial tees, hoodies and tanks. And be sure to swing by Deer Dana for a flick through their celebrity illustration tees — this Albert Elbaz tee from their portrait collection is a must-have for fashion lovers! Also take the time to check out this Kate Moss inspired tee by Simeon Farrar and this not so cheap Moschino Cheap and Chic jersey top.

But lets not get all labels and designer over this trend, its meant to be fun and unrestricted. Gimmick tees have invaded the web on sites like Gimmickwear, a marketplace dedicated to humorous and creative caricature and slogan tees!

So, explore the options. Slap a slogan, icon, face or gimmick on your chest and be brave with your choices. And, to my fellow Box Hillians, keep an eye out for me wearing this little baby.
