how to style a casual graphic tee

I am such a huge fan of the perfect graphic tee.  Sometimes I want to make a huge statement and other times, I just want to add a little interest to a basic outfit.  I think everyone should have at least one great graphic tee, but in reality, once you start buying them, I don't think you'll be able to stop.  Good thing, because there are so many screen prints, designs & sayings these days and so many ways to wear t-shirts.  Read on for 3 of my favorite ways to style graphic t-shirts...

CLASSIC - Of course the most obvious way to wear a graphic tee shirt is with a pair of jeans.  This is a classic look that is perfect for weekends and is so comfortable.  I added a structured pair of loafer flats and clutch bag for daytime to dress this look up a bit.

EDGY - For an edgier gal, a graphic tee looks great paired with leather.  Add a leather jacket, as a beginner, or a leather skirt or pair of pants, if you really want to dive in.  Even the girliest graphic tee will look super cool when paired with leather.

GIRLY - If you're looking to dress up a graphic tee, try pairing it with a full midi skirt!  The A-line, twirly shape of a midi skirt is the perfect juxtaposition for a casual t-shirt, but they look great paired together! Add a bright lip and a pair of heels to finish off this look!
