June 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

Graphic T-shirts have been a trend for the past few years and it seems like they’re here to stay again for the summer. Graphic shirts are so versatile and can easily be used when throwing together an outfit. Are you going for grunge, hipster or preppy with a twist? Graphic T-shirts can do it all.

When you think graphic T-shirts, you think edgy. Graphic T-shirts are usually paired with ripped jeans, trendsetting shoes, maybe a flannel button-down and accessories. Are you going to a concert, downtown or just hanging out with friends? A graphic T-shirt is a suitable choice for anything. You can dress them up, dress them down or just let them speak for themselves. Graphic T-shirts allow you to say something without using your voice. It can just be a graphic, a Beyoncé lyric or a way to send a message you’re passionate about. Celebrities have been known to wear graphic tees to make a statement without having to open their mouth.

This Fashionista is rockin’ her graphic T-shirt while representing the South. The Aztec prints in the actual graphic helps draw your eye in, making the T-shirt the main element. Jean shorts create a casual feel, while the tears help keep it edgy. The brass gold accessories go perfectly with this outfit and help tie in the brown graphic T-shirt and black gladiator sandals. The sandals are simple but complete the look of the outfit. The great thing about this graphic tee is the fact that this Fashionista could easily throw on a pair of cowgirl boots and would be ready for a country concert. In the wise words of Tim Riggins, “Texas Forever.”
