Is it just us or is the graphic tee one of the most underrated outfit staples out there? We’re crazy about this option because it piles on the personality without compromising comfort or figure flattery. Also, we’re obsessed with anything and everything that pairs perfectly with our cutest pair of plus size jeans. If you’ve got a huge stash of graphic tees you want to showcase, reference this guide for some fun and unique ways to style them.
Under a Cozy Plaid Cardigan—We are all heart eyes over this autumn-ready outfit featuring the Towards the Cabin Cardigan and the My Fall Favorites Tee! What we love the most about it is the fact that it perfectly honors the season without going over the top. And this cozy buffalo plaid cardigan is definitely one of those worth-the-investment top layers that will get tons of wear when it’s cold out. Pair it with a pumpkin spice latte and some faux suede booties to tie it all together.
Mixing Patterns with Solids—This chic ensemble showcases two of our favorite pieces–the Who You Are Cardigan in solid black and the Caught Day Dreaming Tee in pink. Together, they represent one of our very favorite ways to wear bold graphic elements: beneath a solid layer. Though we aren’t against the idea of mixing and matching graphics and patterns, we love the subtlety of this ensemble and how it packs a punch without being too busy. It’s also neutral enough to wear to work on casual Fridays.
To Celebrate the Season—Say hello to Halloween with the Spooky Time Top and Stand in the Spotlight Jeans! There’s no better way to rock your graphic tee than the seasonal way, we think. And this is the perfect look for all your Halloween activities, whether you’re binging a scary movie marathon, carving pumpkins with your besties or shopping for your trophy-winning Halloween costume. Keep a few season and holiday-themed tees in your wardrobe for year-round spirit.
Under a Utility-Inspired Jacket—Your collection of trendy plus size jackets is really going to come in handy when styling your favorite graphic tees. Just take a look at how we’ve paired the super-versatile Born to Explore Jacket in camel with a chic worded tee. This look is totally ideal for all your winter and autumn affairs, from game day tailgates to hayrides, holiday shopping and trick-or-treating. It pairs perfectly with distressed denim and booties or sneakers, too.
Under a Statement Cardigan Sweater—Much like your jackets, your plus size cardigan sweaters serve as amazing top layers over anything and everything graphic, especially when it’s cooler out. And you don’t have to layer only with solids, especially if you pick the right print or pattern! Take our Nights in Soho Cardigan in leopard, for example. Despite the fact that it’s got an all-over pattern, it’s still remarkably neutral so it looks great overtop any chic tee.
With Some Fun Jewelry—Why do we so often reserve our graphic tees for those stripped-down days when we’re going for effortlessly understated? We’re also big fans of using the T-shirt as a subtle foundation for bold accessories. Don’t be afraid to style it with some fun jewelry that stands out and adds a layer of chic polish to your ensemble. Our Won’t Faze Me Earrings make a fun accent with your favorite solid and graphic tops, but any bold necklaces and bracelets will do the trick.
Wear Your Personality on Your Tee
What we love the most about graphic tees is their unique ability to send a message. Whether seasonal, clever or downright hilarious, graphic T-shirts help you add some fun, lighthearted messaging to your outfit. And, whether you style them with denim shorts and sandals in the summer or beneath a chunky cardie in the winter, these tops get tons of love throughout the year. We hope you’ll keep them in the rotation with these awesome styling tips courtesy of the curvy style pros at Chic Soul!
