It should come as no surprise to any of you, that my go to closet staple is a graphic tee. It is always my first choice and the thing I reach for most in my closet. I love that they are so versatile. Whether it is dressed up with a skirt or comfy with jeans or joggers, you can’t go wrong! So since it is such a favorite of mine, I thought it would be fun to share my 5 favorite ways to style a graphic tee PLUS some of my “insider” tips to picking the right tee for you!

You can’t go wrong with this classic approach to styling a graphic tee. It’s simple + relaxed, just like a graphic tee should be. I love wearing them untucked with skinny jeans or a tighter pant to balance out the look.

One of the most common ways you’ll see a graphic tee styled is the half tuck. You still get that laid back feel with cleaner lines to show your figure a little better.

The tee shown in this look brings me to my first tip : GRAPHIC TEES CAN FIT ANY BUDGET! A great thing about graphic tees is that you can find them in any price range. Some of my very favorites like this one, this one , and this one are under $20. They are comfy and great to throw on and go and I love my affordable options. You can also jump up to the higher end graphic tee which I have too in styles like this one. If you would’ve asked me a few years ago if I would pay that much for a t-shirt I probably would’ve laughed, but the quality is there and I LOVE them! They are so dang comfy and the quality is amazing I know they will last for years and years.

Another classic way to style your graphic tee is just by simply doing a full tuck in. It gives your look a more polished feel than your typical graphic tee, but still gives you the comfort level!

Styling a graphic tee with a skirt is my new favorite! I love to be unique with my style, so this “dressed up” graphic tee is totally my jam.

Which brings me to my second tip : LET YOUR GRAPHIC TEE BE VERSATILE! One of the best things about these tees is that they are so versatile. You can dress it up with a skirt like you see here, or go straight cozy with joggers. They honestly go with so many different looks and are such a good basic to have in your closet.

Tying your graphic tee in a knot on the side is definitely one of my favorite ways to go. It gives your look such a fun pop. It is a great way to give you a more fitted look and add a little flare to your look too.

Which brings me to my final little tip : CHECK OUT THE MENS TEES! Some of my favorite tees (like this one) are from the mens department! Having that extra space and length makes them perfect for the knotted look, because it gives you more material to work with. Add the tie with a rolled up sleeve and it is such a cute look!

I hope these fun style ideas give you some inspiration for your next graphic tee look! You can’t go wrong with comfort and versatility! What is your go to closet staple?
