I read somewhere that graphic tees are the longtime wardrobe staple of the openly cheeky and I couldn’t agree more. A bright colored one like the one I’m sporting today, not only upgrades a look but becomes the focus of a chic ensemble. 

Graphic pieces are very trendy and versatile. You can dress one up with a blazer and heels like I did or dress it down by donning a pair of jeans and sneakers for a great off duty effortless model look. 

This trend has been going strong for years now and is far from new.  The street style crowd have also been embracing it and I’m sure you’ve seen them everywhere. 

In fact my second son a college student had a very creative and original graphic tee design business for the past 2 years. He created his designs and sometimes my older daughter who is the artist in the house would bring them to life for him and we all modeled them for him. His site is currently down but will be back up soon as he’s done with school and I’ll be sure to share. 

I wanted my tee to stay the star of my look so I paired it with wide leg black pants that didn’t take away from it’s personality and attitude. Finished with a boater hat and a vintage Chanel maxi bag, I love the very minimal vibe this look gives. 

Hope you like it as much as I do!

  7. I love how you styled this tee, Idu:) Everything just works, from the hat to the shoes.:) So chic.

  8. This outfit for some reason makes me think of Parisian chic. Maybe it is the trousers? Those high waist trousers do look amazing on you and I love how you paired them with those sky high heels.

    Graphic tees are indeed a great way to jazz up any outfit. This yellow one is so lovely....and this outfit as a whole is so gorgeous. Makes me think of Spring...speaking of Spring, seems like the Spring has already arrived there....

    So cool your son had a graphic tee business tell when the site launches online again, I'd love to check it out.

    Have a lovely week!!!!!!

  9. Idu, always well put together! I love the minimal but chic look as well. I have also been into graphic tee/tops for a bit now...though outside of my blogging looks. I love the chic, minimalistic albeit statement talking air it evokes.

  10. I love graphic tees. They're totally underestimated in fashion sometimes. But you're totally making a case for them here. Love this tee paired with those pants and heels. Absolutely stunning.
