The modern graphic tee is cut generously, drapes seductively, and features illustrations chic enough to hang on your walls. Wear them tucked into structured skirts or loose over baggy trousers; the new graphic tee will make you look like a cover girl, not a mall rat. Scroll through for three sophisticated ways to wear them.
Casual Friday — On the one day of the week when you can get away with fun heels and (tailored) shorts, don’t be scared to go casual with a T-shirt. Layer a structured vest on top that hits you mid-derriere, and you’ll look good for HR and some R&R later.
Friend of Mine Leather Vest, $398, available at The Grand Social; Jimmy Choo Sandals, $1,050. available at Net-a-Porter; Uniqlo E.M.Happy Project T-Shirt, $9.90, available at Uniqlo; Reiss Clara Jay Shorts, $126, available at Reiss; Juicy Couture Perforated Shopper, $139.99, available at Juicy Couture.
City Slicker — For a long day of walking, sightseeing, and general errand running, a T-shirt is a no-brainer. But, if you choose your other pieces carefully (a walkable flat sandal, a cropped pair of slouchy trousers, a backpack that’ll turn heads…), your tee will look sharp, not schlubby.
Topshop Photo Dove Tee, $32, available at Topshop; Cole Haan Baily Sandal, $84.95, available at Cole Haan; Alexander Wang Pleated Trouser, $550, available at La Garconne; C Wonder Bold Cat Eye Sunglasses, $78, available at C Wonder; Black Town Backpack, $495, available at Boticca.
Date Night — There are few things as sexy as a T-shirt (worn right, of course). Tuck in a paper-thin tee into an equally graphic skirt, and keep your leg line long with a strappy heel in a natural hue.
