Graphic tees are among some of the most statement-worthy wardrobe staples that a girl can invest in. They’re effortless, a tad edgy, and are sure to get you out of any style rut! If the thought of wearing a graphic tee to work intimidates you, then fear not! Haley Titus of Colour Me Classic – and winner of 9 coast to coast challenges! – is here to lend her expertise on dressing the ever-stylish graphic tee up or down! Here’s what Haley has to say:

“While graphic t-shirts may seem like they can only be worn in casual settings, I would argue that they’re appropriate for the office, too. When styled with some tact, a graphic tee will allow you to stand out from the crowd in the best way possible. I’ve prepared some easy styling tips and outfits below that show just how versatile the graphic tee really is!”


“Throw on a blazer, a pencil skirt, and a statement necklace to complete your look. I chose a pointed heel to help me look more savvy. These simple items can take your casual look and make it instantly office appropriate. Just by tucking your graphic tee in, you’re sure to look more polished and put-together. It works every time!”


“Chances are, 20 of your co-workers will be wearing the same white button-up while you’re rocking something a bit edgier. If your workplace is more conservative, you could try layering a button-up under your graphic tee, so that you don’t lose that professional feel.”


“As we’re heading into summer, don’t hesitate to switch out your leather jacket for a graphic tee – now, there’s a look that pushes the boundaries!”


“As for the casual graphic tee look, you really have free reign to do anything. Pair it with denim cutoffs, scalloped shorts, or your favorite midi skirts. For shoes, I tried an animal print slip-on, but a strappy sandal or wedge would be equally cute. Graphic tees are very versatile and add that special twist you need when an outfit feels bland.”


“Lastly, don’t be afraid to bust out your old favorite band tee and pair it with a more polished piece like this embellished clutch. The result will be a rad, unexpected look!”
