Warning: This post contains graphic content – graphic tees, that is!
I have a major love of graphic tees. Vintage or new, I always have a huge collection of graphics. My first love is a good vintage band tee, not only because of the aesthetic but the history behind them, thinking about the story of who originally bought it or the memories that are attached.
Even when I find a new graphic, I tend to DIY it to make it look more vintage – adding rips and holes to give it character, like I did to this Harley-Davidson tee.
But how do you wear a distressed T-shirt and look stylish, not sloppy? Let me break it down for you.
1. Give the look some structure
In the outfit above, I paired my graphic with a wool, structured skirt. This gives a great juxtaposition of both casual and dressy to create a unique outfit.
2. Add layers
Throw on a jacket to create a layer and dimension to the look.
3. Create a shape
T-shirts can be boxy and not give much shape. I like to tie them if paired with a high-waisted bottom – or add a belt bag/belt over the tee to create shape.
