The Basics Series: How to style a Graphic Tee

Heres How You Do IT!

Finding your personal style at times can be CHALLENGING!

That’s why I’m here to help! Every day, people are sending me photos asking “Does this go together”?

OR “How does this look”?

So I decided to start the basic series, The Basics Series will aid in helping you find your personal style and how to style simple pieces. 

So this look is simple and chic, all with a GRAPHIC TEE!

Most people don’t know how to style basic wardrobe essentials. A look can be dressed up or down, twisted and turned inside out! You just have to know how to do it. 

Starting off with a simple tee. So in love with my Janet Jacksons Rhythm Nation tee, I love Janet though! Her impeccable and warming personality give me all kinds of vibes!

Styling a Basic Graphic Tee


1. Have an idea of what you would like to wear with it

2. If you’re dressing the tee up or down

3. Remix it! Knot it, Tie it or Add accessories

Graphic Tee’s are simple but iconic. I wore mine with a statement high waisted Levi’s skirt and heels of course. I like to elevate my look which is why I choose heels!

But, I will grab a pair of sneakers real quick, you best know!

When I wear Graphic Tee’s


1. I like to dress it up, ELEVATE THE LOOK
2. Elevate by, wearing heels

3. Make it for you, jeans, skirt or under a dress

Invest in your basic pieces, they make up the majority of your wardrobe.

Play with it and find what you like.

Lots of times people try to EVALUATE their style off of others, which is okay sometimes.



1. Know what works for you

2. Try it out and if you don’t like it don’t force yourself. especially not for a trend

3. Love it or DITCH IT, don’t be uncomfortable with your style!
