Something I love about other fashion blogs is finding inspiration. Something I hate? How rarely it seems that the same piece ever is styled again in a new way. Have you noticed that? To be fair, I know I’m guilty of this too. With a sometimes overwhelming closet, a higher budget than what is average, and the fact that I don’t post a new outfit every day, I could probably go awhile before actually repeating a major piece in an outfit. When Legit Tees offered to send me a few tanks to style a few months ago (last seen here), I thought it would be a fun challenge to share how to wear graphic tees in different outfits.
What I’m Wearing
Jacket: Rubbish (similar)
Tank: c/o Legit Tees
Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad Jeggings
Shoes: Sole Society (similar)
Bag: Dailylook Sinatra Fringe Bucket Bag
Something I’ve been trying to consciously do is restyling and sharing my favorite pieces in new ways to prove that you don’t have to have a crazy high budget or expensive pieces to get a ton of wear out them. While this graphic tee is slightly different than the last one I posted, the idea remains the same and is easily applicable to any graphic tee you have in your closet. I liked this one with a military jacket (yes, I know it may not be weather friendly yet, but this would be a great outfit for fall!) and loved how the burgundy booties made the red accents pop. My new fringe bucket bag from my recent Dailylook Elite box added a little bohemian vibe which I love.
To be fair, I have the luxury of working in a very casual office. So casual that wearing a graphic tee to work is not weird in the slightest. I think one of my biggest worries about getting a “grown up” job was having to not wear more than half of my closet. I’m admittedly a casual dresser on the regular, on the prospect of having to get buttoned up every day really doesn’t appeal to me. So this outfit is something that I wore to work, however this could easily be weekend wear instead. And even if you don’t have all of these pieces (i.e. no military jacket? Maybe try denim instead!) the idea remains the same: try styling
Can you get away with a graphic tee at work? How do you like to style your graphic tees? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments!
I love the color of those shoes! So great for fall.
Thanks Chelsea! So do I! :)
Love the edgy look! I agree I always try to style my looks a couple of ways to get the most mileage
Thanks Brittany! You’re the master when it comes to styling one thing multiple ways! ;)
Jen, this is a great outfit to wear into Summer to Fall transition. Between the black jeans, suede, fringe and cranberry booties it is perfect for Fall. =)
Hope all is well. Take Care. Ada. =)
Thanks so much Ada! Hope you’re doing well too!
Love everything in this outfit, most especially the booties! That color suits you well!
totally agree about restyling things – i love to see how people rewear things because that’s more relatable. and i love a good graphic tee!
Me too! I’m definitely going to try to make an effort to restyle and rewear more of my favorites here :)
I love your face in the last picture. As for graphic tees, jeans and a leather jacket is pretty much my go-to. Dress it up with makeup and heels. Boom. Outfit. /lazy
Thanks Lix! That sounds like a great outfit, and while I’ve been tempted to bust out the leather jacket, it’s still a bit too warm for it here!
I’d style it pretty much the same way, or I would use a blazer instead of the military jacket! The booties are awesome!
Thanks Julie! I love styling graphic tees with blazers too. :)
I really appreciate it when fashion bloggers restyle pieces! Even if I had a bigger clothing budget, I’m trying to live a simpler, more streamlined life, so it’s really inspiring when bloggers show different ways to wear items, particularly pieces (like t-shirts) that most of us are likely to have in our closets already. Good stuff!
Thanks so much Jane, and so glad you like that! I’m definitely trying to make a conscious effort to slim down my wardrobe to my favorites and thus restyling and rewearing more pieces in real life and here!
