Want an easy way to dress up without thinking too much about what to wear? Graphic tees to the rescue.
Don’t get me wrong, fashion is fun. But there are just some days when your style energy may be lower than usual. During these (hopefully once-in-a-blue-moon) occasions, I believe in relying on the power of a graphic print shirt.
A printed tee can truly carry a simple going-out ensemble. Pair one with shorts, jeans, or a skirt, and you’re good to go.
If you pick an oversized one, you can even get away with wearing nothing else — except maybe some fun shoes. That’s exactly what Lizzo did when she wore a graphic shirt with a print of her portrait (yes, a double Lizzo moment).
Other celebrities seem to be fans of printed tees too. Aside from Lizzo, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Gigi Hadid have also been spotted wearing one.
They’re not the only ones on board the trend, though. Searches for celebrity-approved graphic tees are on the rise, according to Lyst, with a 25% hike month-on-month.
What are people looking for? Oversized graphic shirts! But that’s not all, band t-shirts are becoming popular again with an increase of 13%.
Brands are just as eager to deliver. Have you seen the Ganni tees going around on Instagram recently? There’s a selection of cheerful graphic tees from the Scandi label available right now.
I’ve also found more graphic tees from Zara, H&M, Nasty Gal, and more — there’s a Purple Rain band shirt and a hippie ‘70s printed tee — that we can all wear for those lazy, can’t-seem-to-style days.
