Why Vintage Graphic Tees Are a Wardrobe Staple

Testing: 1, 2. Vintage graphic tees definitely pass the vibe check. Show your appreciation for the classics with these rockin’ vintage graphic tees. What’s so great about graphic tees (aside from wearing your fav band on your shirt) is that they can be styled in so many fun and different ways. So, let’s spill the tee. Here’s a few fun graphic T-shirt looks we love to give you some inspo.

The Classic Vintage Grunge Tee

For a style that is never worn out, rock your vintage graphic tee with a pair of jeans. Get the classic grunge look with our Def Leppard Graphic Tee or Pink Floyd Graphic Tee styled with blue or black cropped mom jeans, black boots and a felt fedora hat. We love this Geo-Trim Wide-Brim Fedora for completing the aesthetic. Put on a pair of big sunglasses to add to the avoid-the-paparazzi mood we all admire from our fav celebs.

For that just-rolled-out-of-bed look, throw a flannel over your graphic tee and add a beanie into the mix. Whether you’re out camping in the mountains or grabbing an iced latte from your local coffee shop, this is the perfect casual cool-girl ensemble and so comfy!

Layer Your Vintage Graphic Tees

To all you boss babes out there, this one’s for you! Wear your favorite vintage graphic tee under a blazer for the ultimate office-casual vibe. Who says that graphic T-shirts have to be worn with a grunge style? Let’s take them out of their notorious dive bar setting and into the office. We love our Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da Graphic Tee slipped under our Drop-Sleeve Blazer. Choose from baby blue or taupe, both look great for getting things done.

Step it up a notch and tuck our Tupac Graphic Tee into your cream or black power suit and keep it rockin’ – a way to let everyone know you’re the CEO of business and fashion. Don’t forget your handbag. We love our Translucent Square Satchel paired with this ‘fit.

Fem it Up with Flowy Skirts and Vintage Graphic Tees

Pair your women’s vintage graphic tees with a flowy skirt and live out a Californian summer fantasy. We love the clash of these graphic tee-shirt styles – ultra-feminine meets grunge – worn with some strappy sandals, a leather backpack, and a pair of gold or silver hoops. Get the look with our David Bowie Graphic Tee or Janis Joplin Graphic Tee tucked into our Cow Print Tulip-Hem Skirt. Throw on a pair of sneakers to keep it casual or dress it up with wedges and a clutch for brunch with the squad.
