Pair them with high-waste pants
High waist trousers are definitely in. Somehow these pants are one of the hottest fashion picks for every woman. Trousers are elegant, graceful and sleek and a perfect ensemble for your work and you can give them a playful spin by pairing them with a graphic tee. There are so many ways to experiment with a graphic tee and high waist pants, you can either wear a plain white or pastel graphic tee with floral high-waist pants or beige-colored pants with a dark graphic tee and a sharp blazer and heels. This look alone will look great for your office. To enhance your office look you can go for patterns and stripes rather than floral. Go for bold, dark colors for office. The same attire with some stack rings and bracelets will give a chic look to your evening outings.
Why ignore the skirts?
This is a fun pair. Pick your favorite flowy skirt and a graphic tee for an alluring look. For a more feminine look, a simple white graphic tee with a pink floral flowing skirt would look fabulous on any sunny day, to add a little fun to it, tie a knot on your t-shirt, pair them with your kitten heels and you are good to go! You are highly mistaken if you think you can’t pull it off in your office.
Unless you have code, wear your graphic tee with a neutral-toned pencil skirt to give it a formal, sleek look. Tuck your t-shirt in and wear a string belt with a coat that complements the color of your skirt. This look is bold and interesting. According to your mood and choice, you can go for a leopard print skirt or a leather skirt, either way, the look is going to be a total head-turner.
Buit up with Graphic tees
Graphic tees are no longer the plain childish t-shirts you wear to look cool. These t-shirts also have high-end standards and if you accessorize them right, they can be a part of any given event or meeting. So why not pair them with a suit? Swap your boring white blouse or a button-up shirt with a bright graphic tee and pair it with your formal dark pantsuit. Blend bold with funky and give your chic spin to the power suit. Flatter the look with your platform pumps and carry your standard structured bag for a modern take on it.
Pair it with the classic denim
This is probably the coolest of all the looks. Anything paired with denim jeans is bound to look great. A cropped graphic tee with jeans and sneakers is perfect for a day-outing look. There is absolutely no stress about color coordination as everything looks good with a pair of jeans. Let your hair down by donning a denim jacket and a neon graphic tee with cropped jeans and ankle boots. If you are wearing a denim jacket with your graphic tee, you can even experiment with black leggings or leather pants, if this does not speak volumes about being stylish, what else will?
Make way for layers
Jackets, coats, blazers, and shrugs, give you a dapper look. The apparels can no way go wrong. Make sure to pair your graphic tees with leather black jackets for your parties, bold blazers while for your office and maybe even with a trench-coat for your inner diva to shine bright.
