I have nothing to wear!

We’ve all been there but luckily a cool graphic top can solve any case of that dreaded scenario.

This closet staple serves as a great base for any ensemble because it’s versatile and understated. Therefore you can have fun and pair it with (almost) anything and still look super chic.

Graphic T-shirts are right on trend at the moment. And with good reason!

They are super FUN, super AFFORDABLE and you can speak your MIND at the same time.

And as an added bonus you can wear your graphic T-shirt in a million different ways!

Scroll down to see how I’ve styled my FAVOURITE graphic T-shirt in 3 different ways.

***My BEA -UTI-FUL graphic T-shirt is available from @Foschini for only R180 (bargain!)

1. THE CLASSIC COMBO

There is nothing more stylish than the classic jeans and T-shirt combo.

You can easily change the day-vibe of this look by adding cool heels.

I opt for gold flats – the gold accessories make this shirt pop even more and of course I can run around after my little munch kin.

Update this look by loosely tucking in your t-shirt into your favourite jeans.

Although this look seem simple you will be surprise how many second glances you will receive on the street – effortless style at its best!

Remember a simple outfit (like the one I’m wearing) will make your shirt design shine.

Keep your hair simple with a loose bun to complement the simplicity of the outfit.

2. SHORT AND SWEET

If you have an old pair of floral or printed shorts lying around – now is the time to dust them off!

Here I’m wearing my graphic T with printed soft shorts.

I love the colour and pleats of the shorts but it can easily look dated – but just throw on your graphic shirt – it will immediately take years of any “mumish” looking short.

These soft shorts are the ultimate in comfort and paired with your graphic T you will be super comfortable but oh-so-chic.

Again tuck in your shirt for an even more modern look and to show off your belt. Add cool sunglasses for that extra oh-so-stylish touch.

3. FUN AND FLARE

This is by far my favourite combo.

The flare skirt immediately adds a feminine touch to any outfit especially when paired with the more boyish graphic T-shirt.

Tuck in your T, to show off that waist and pair with flats or heels – depending on the occasion.

Here I paired a black and white flare skirt with my graphic T. It’s perfect for a relaxed date night: a girly yet chic dinner outfit.

Keep your hair loose and wavey to complement the feminine skirt.

And in a supporting role…

No, I’m not talking about your capable nanny or even a lovely granny…

I’ m talking about the simple wonder that is the T-shirt bra:

No T-shirt look is complete without the right underwear.

There’s a reason it’s called the t-shirt bra it works perfectly with t-shirts!

It lifts (breastfeeding anyone?) and creates a smooth look at the same time.

I’m wearing Woolworth’s classic T-shirt bra.

I love the grey colour (it’s just so much prettier than the flesh color ones, don’t you think?)

No more lounging around on the couch in your trusted T’s.

With some creativity and clever high-low styling you can now take your favourite T out for a (well deserved) outing.

Stay Stylish!
XOXO
