What’s so Great About Graphic Tees?
Graphic tees are the best of both worlds for comfort and style all in one. They add a cool factor to any outfit, even a basic one. We can express ourselves through our clothing and graphics are a great way to do this. It shows your personality through your outfits. You can wear different designs that you’re drawn to and that represent you and your style. They are also super versatile and can be worn with jeans and sneakers or dressed up with boots and dress pants.
Where did Graphic Tees Come From?
The history behind graphic tees is super interesting and something we don’t tend to think about since they are so heavily incorporated into modern style.
Beginning in the 1950s, an ink used for screen printing called Plastisol became mainstream, which gave designers freedom to create graphics on clothing. With this newfound ink, designers were able to market their brands, characters, etc. onto T-shirts, which became a very popular market.
Following in the 1960s, bands found that they were able to put their logos on t-shirts and this became very popular amongst their fans. This was found to be very profitable for these bands, so many other artists followed in creating their own line of t-shirts. In turn, this made graphic t-shirts very well liked and brought them mainstream. This kind of tee became the traditional graphic tee we know today.
After this initial reaction, many companies began putting their brand logos on shirts in a similar fashion to the bands’ graphics. Eventually, all sorts of graphics were put onto t-shirts, including:
There was a brief decline in the popularity of graphic tees in the early 2000s, but over the last few years, graphic t-shirts have been making a huge comeback for their cool factor and versatility.
How to Style Your Graphic Tee
Graphic tees are much like a basic top where they can be styled a number of different ways. They are stretchy, comfortable, have a breathable neckline, and are made out of soft materials, so even if you’re dressing it up, you will still get a high level of comfort in your outfit. They can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your plans for the day. In addition, they can contribute to your outfit as a pop of color or showcase an edgy graphic.
If you’re running late or don’t want to put much thought into your outfit for the day, graphic tees are convenient and essential to have in your closet. They are super versatile and can speak for themselves when putting together an outfit.
Graphic Tees for a Casual Look
For a casual day look while running out for errands or lunch, you can pair your graphic tee with basic joggers, sweatpants, or denim. The bottoms can be a neutral color or even printed if you’re feeling bold such as a camo pant or jogger.
On the top, as the weather cools down, you can throw on a denim jacket or a zip up sweater over your tee for extra warmth. The great thing about these tees is that they can be layered over or under your other fall pieces. You can wear them over a neutral long sleeve for a more skater look or under your favorite fall coat. The graphic will give you that extra level of style even if all of your other pieces are basics. You don’t even have to think about it!
For shoes, the options are really endless. A casual pair of neutral sneakers, dressier leather sneakers, or boots will go perfectly with this look.
Trend tip! If you want to go for a bolder look with your tee, denim on denim is in for this fall. A graphic tee to separate the denim pieces is a perfect addition and spin on this upcoming trend.
Graphic Tees for an Upscale Look
To dress up a graphic tee for a night out or an upscale look, you can pair it with dark wash denim, chinos, or even dress pants on the bottom.
Over top you can wear your tee under a nice cardigan, sweater, blazer, or button up jacket. For shoes, dressy leather sneakers, boots, or loafers would elevate your look. Finally, for accessories, a simple scarf could tie the look together while also keeping you warm.
