Style Tip Tuesday: How to Wear Graphic Tees with Skirts

Graphic tees are my jam!  They allow you to be comfortable without being boring.   And they make a statement!  Since I have so many (can’t. stop. buying. them.), I wanted to innovate the way I wear them.  It’s so easy to just reach for my favorite jeans, so i wanted to step outside my comfort zone and pair the tees with skirts.  For Style Tip Tuesday, I’m showing you how to wear graphic tees with skirts.  I could have kept creating skirt + graphic tee outfits FOREVER if I had the time!

How to Wear Graphic Tees with Skirts: The Ruffled Mini

Let me start off by saying I literally just bought this graphic tee at Target two days ago.  They have some of the best tees ever!  When I saw this one, I immediately added it to my pile in the cart.  The price is always usually right at Target, so it was a no-brainer.

I have had this skirt in my closet for years!  It has such staying power.  You can’t go wrong with the length, the chambray, the ruffles, the buttons, the high-waist… Check it out over the famed LuLaRoe Carly Dress!  I swear, this skirt is so versatile.

So since I can wear this skirt so many different ways, I decided to do a blue-on-blue outfit with it.  (I feel like chambray + blue or denim + blue is a huge trend right now.)  And since the skirt is light and fun, this tee is the perfect companion for it!

Yea, I look like I am really hustling, don’t I??  Ha!  Here’s an extra style tip:  If you’ve already gone this far with quirkiness, you might as well go all out.  Hence, I added floral high-top Converse and a collar necklace.  Done and done!

How to Wear Graphic Tees with Skirts: The High-Waisted Pencil

This cropped “Très” tee goes perfectly with a slinky black skirt!  I found it at Marshall’s a year ago for $7.99.  No lie!!  Look at the beading on it!  The shininess of the letters totally compliments the sheen of the skirt.  And my pearls?  They are authentic Fenghui Pearls from Shanghai (a gift from hubby).

Isn’t this look sweet, fun, and flirty all at the same time?  And of course, it is perfect for Taco Tuesday! (P.S. I am wearing my JORD watch in the first and third looks.)  And here is another style tip: Tulle skirts really can go with ANY top (as long as it’s the right length). I feel like I should do a tulle skirt challenge…

    OMG CUTE! 🙂 I will have to try this with my many graphic cartoon-ish tees, maybe it won’t work out the same way but it’s worth a try! 🙂 And I love your tulle skirt, I wish I had one but I’m afraid I won’t know how to style it! 🙁
