Reader Request: Styling Your Graphic Tees

how to wear graphic tees

Reader Kim e-mailed me this query:

I was wondering if you could do a post with suggestions on how to work graphic t-shirts into a wardrobe with a little style. I must confess that I have a total threadless.com obsession. As a result, I have a ridiculous number of crew neck graphic print shirts, that while they tend to be pretty fitted (a left-over from their former patronage of American Apparel base shirts), are really obviously nerd-a-licious t-shirts. I have pretty good success incorporating t-shirts with other stylish details (various necklines like boat, v’s, scoops, yoke details, sequins, beading, etc) into outfits that look more thought-out. But lately the graphic t-shirts are throwing me for a loop. I usually just default to my t-shirt, boot cut jeans and running shoes (maybe a track jacket for extra layering). All of this is feeling very tired and uninspired. Can you please suggest some ways to make my nerd shirts feel a little more sartorially inspired? READ MORE

I avoided the “stars and stripes” cliche and went right for the weather-focused one instead. Couldn’t even help it.

It was a balmy 75 degrees yesterday, but late last week we had this: Sleet, ice, and about 8 inches of snow. And that’s spring in the Midwest for ya. I have grand plans to pile all of my remaining snow-on-the-ground outfits into a marathon Saturday post, but fear that doing so will bring a blizzard upon us. I’ll probably do it anyway. I’m happy to be the scapegoat for this fickle weather. READ MORE
