Do you ever have those days where you confront your closet and are at a total loss of inspiration? I know that some days I just need an out of the ordinary piece to spark my outfit decision. And especially on a college campus, when dressing casually is basically the accepted uniform, graphic T-shirts are the best way to go.

I like how this Fashionista used a simple black and white gingham button-down shirt to style her playful T-shirt. Paired with destroyed denim cut-offs, the shirt worn over her T-shirt gives the look a little rock ‘n’ roll feel to it. And not to mention that her graphic shirt is CollegeFashionista approved! Moment of truth: I was overly excited when I stopped her on the street because I just had to snap her photo based on her shirt alone. Having never heard of CollegeFashionista, she didn’t quite understand why I was so obsessed with those three little letters displayed across her shirt, but nonetheless, she agreed to the photos.

Her look is super playful with a floppy hat and edgy booties. This would be great for exploring a new city by foot or even just lounging around your dorm, sans hat, of course. For any occasion, opt for bold graphics that make a statement on their own.

How To: Go for a shirt or sweatshirt that really pops, like a black design on an all-white background or a similar design. This can make your top the main event, allowing the rest of your outfit a laid back, cool vibe that seems to be just the right amount of casual and bold.
