STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Good Vibes And Graphic Tees

June 11th, 2015 at 2:00am

Graphic T-shirts, the unsung hero of the fashion world. We all wear them, but do we really appreciate them for the fashion staple they are? Graphic T-shirts have been around for decades. During WWII they were used to identify the military branch and platoon their wearer belonged to, during the ’70s graphic T-shirts showed messages of protest or support and in the ’80s and ’90s they depicted images of bands like The Rolling Stones, ZZ Top and Nirvana. Today, they can be seen everywhere and on everyone from Harry Styles to Sarah Jessica Parker.

Even Beyonce rocks a graphic T-shirt every now and then and why wouldn’t she? Think about how versatile a graphic T-shirt is. It can be paired with almost anything; a blazer and jeans, a leather pencil skit and Chuck Taylor’s or even over a sleeveless dress. They’re the easiest thing in the world to wear. Honestly, everyone looks good in the right graphic T-shirt.

Speaking of the right graphic T-shirt, the one our Fashionista is wearing is beyond amazing. Her T-shirt is simple, stylish, and has an awesome message. “Good Vibes Only” is written in white, blocked lettering on an all black, slightly cropped T-shirt. Our Fashionista paired her graphic T-shirt with high-wasted jean shirts, a blue button-down collared shirt, a woven fedora and black lace-up boots. This relaxed, yet stylish look shows us just how adaptable a graphic T-shirt can be.

Break out and stock up on the graphic T-shirts, kids because they’re going to be around for a very long time. Whether you’re rocking a graphic T-shirt with a political message, your favorite superhero or a very cool message like “Good Vibes Only,” you can’t go wrong.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “A graphic T-shirt can be dressed up or played down. For an easy day look, thrown on a pair of ripped skinny jeans with your favorite graphic T-shirt. If you’re feeling edgy that day add a pair of Vans and a leather motorcycle jacket. For a night look pair your graphic T-shirt with a tulle skirt, your favorite pair of stilettos and some chunky jewelry. Voila, day and night graphic T-shirt looks.”
