How to Style a Graphic Tee in Six Ways

Today I am collaborating with one of my favourite bloggers in Chicago, Love Zahra! We've been blogger + social media friends since I started this blog (in fact, I was reading one of my first posts and saw her comment on it), and I'm excited that we finally got to work on something together.

We've provided you with six different ways of styling a graphic t-shirt! I'm sharing three looks here, and she has the other three on her blog. I really love how this turned out, especially because each outfit caters to a specific trend. I picked up my graphic tee from Garage, and to be honest, it was a pure coincidence that it matches my blog name!

Keep reading more for outfit details and what inspired me to create the looks.

Outfit Details: Blazer (Joe Fresh), Skirt (Whitney Eve), Ring (Minling Pan Studio), Pumps (Nine West)

It's simple to style a tee with a blazer and jeans, so I wanted to create something with a bit more of an edge. Not tucking in the graphic tee emphasizes the casualness, yet the blazer, skirt and black pumps keep it more professional. I decided to go the minimal route with accessories, as the pattern-mixing is already quite empowering.

By the way, the skirt is not supposed to be high-low, it's a simple bodycon skirt but the fabric sticks to the tights sometimes making it appear that way. I've also worn this skirt previously with a green cardigan, as well as a red wool sweater. I first styled this gorgeous coral blazer for an outfit during World MasterCard Fashioon Week.

Outfit Details: Leggings (Forever 21), Pearl Bracelet Set (Joe Fresh), Metallic Pumps (Aldo), Earrings + Ring (Butterfly Beads), Crossbody Bag (Poppie Jones)

I must have worn these floral leggings a million times already, but had yet to find the perfect graphic tee that would look flattering. This t-shirt works perfectly, as it covers my bum (it's a must, ladies!) and brings out the bright floral pattern.

Outfit Details: Red Pants + Ballet Flats (Forever 21), Belt (H&M), Necklace (thrifted), Clutch (gift)

Have you ever found a pair of pants that fit like a glove, and you never want to take them off? These are it for me. I have worn them at least once a week since I got them (no joke, ask my co-workers). Naturally I had to style this graphic tee with them! I think the white accent in the belt and ballet flats brings out the text.
