We all know the difficulty of combining a graphic tee without looking like a 13-year old. Why does my reprinted ACDC T-Shirt from H&M never look as cool as Rihanna’s or Candice Swanepoel’s (probably) original one? Here’s the problem: although these celebs seem to randomly combine their tees, they don’t. Their stylists and personal shoppers plan very carefully on how to combine THE tee and so do you have to. Because, although it is a very good piece of cloth, if not to say a classic, it’s not the easiest thing to wear. A lady gotta know how to combine it properly!
“A graphic tee can easily be the focus of a chic ensemble,” says Vogue.com Market Editor Kelly Connor. “Just consider its own personality and attitude. For example, a vintage band tee with an A-line skirt and Mary Janes is a bit too ironic, while a charming French heritage tee with a Le Smoking suit feels just right.”
There’s two good ways to combine the classic:
- La version élégante: wear it with classic, elegant trousers, high heels and a chic jacket: it makes a look that is classy with an amusing accent.
- L’option street style: overdo the childish look. Combine it with a dungaree, sneakers, a colorful bag and maybe a cap. An outfit that looks fun and chic at the very same moment!
