Graphic Tees 2.0: How to Level Up Your Shirts

We all have graphic t-shirts in our closets. In my case (and I’m sure a lot of you as well), I have a drawer full of them. And honestly, I rarely use them. The only time I wear graphic tees is when I’m just lazing around the house, or when all my pajamas are in the laundry. I also sometimes use them when I need to go on a quick trip to the nearest store.

Some of you might ask: Why do you have so many graphic t-shirts if you rarely use them? Well, some of them came from friends and relatives, while others I bought because they’re “kinda cute” at that time. Come on, we all have that time when we buy things impulsively, right? Or is it just me? Nah, I doubt it! Ha-ha!

Anyways, here I am, stuck with all these graphic tees I rarely use. What should I do with them? I just can’t dispose of them because, as I’ve said, they were given to me by good friends and loved ones—yup! I’m a sucker for things with sentimental value. That’s when I realize how I can incorporate these comfy tops with the more stylish pieces in my wardrobe. With the right combinations, I’m able to glam up my graphic tees. How? Read on:

Layer It Up

Yes, as simple as wearing a blazer or a jacket, you’ll definitely look more posh than when you’re just wearing a t-shirt. Just layer your graphic tee/jeans combo with a classy blazer or jacket, you will not only be snug on a cold weather, you’ll be a lot more stylish. Aside from blazers and jackets, you can also top your graphic tees with other stylish outerwear, including cardigans, leather jackets, denim jackets, trench coats, and a lot more.

Pair It With Skirts

Tuck it into a midi or mini skirt and—voila—instant glam! Moreover, if you pair graphic tees with girly skirts (floral etc.), you’ll have a combination of fun, no-nonsense  and feminine look. Add pumps or stilettos into the mix and you’ll have that “model off-duty” look going for you.
