Every girl owns a graphic tee or two in their closet. Graphic tees are especially great to throw on before heading out the door to run errands. or if you decide to stay in for the day. Although graphic tees are a basic fashion piece, you can dress the tee up or down by using other pieces in your closet that reflect your personality. It's fun to use a graphic tee to make a statement! Need a little inspiration? Meet my graphic tee, Pedro.
I started off with a plain and simple black and white graphic tee. I have had these mustard colored pants for a while now and they go perfect as they add a pop of color on my outfit! You can always pick any bright solid color such as blue, red green, or pink. If this is your first time dressing up a graphic tee, find one that with a simple picture. You can never go wrong with a black and white graphic tee!
I purposely bought this shirt a little loose. With graphic tees, its important to be able to do multiple styles to change looks! Being able to tie a knot is a playful way to dress up this tee.
Make sure the knot is not super tight! It will cause the picture to crease and distort. It is possible to go a size up on a graphic tee to have leeway to create a knot such as this.
Bling it Up!
The only accessory I added is this necklace! Try a colorful statement necklace or one with bling to dress UP your graphic tee!
Add a Vest
Technically you can add a blazer as well! I added this vest because I wanted to accomplish an "edgy look". Plus it's 100 degrees outside so there is no me wearing a blazer! Try adding a vest that has interesting lines such as this motorcycle style vest. I guarantee your look will change when you add a styled vest!
You can always dress down this look with flats, casual sandals, or wedges. I decided to go with these Guess studded heels to keep this look edgy.
So who's the dude on the tee? His name is Pedro Infante who was a Mexican actor and singer with many popular songs such as "Ella" (Her) , Amorcito Corazon, and Yo No Fui (It wasn't me). Growing up in the Mexican culture, this music was heard often, especially through my grandma and my dad while bbqing on the weekends.
