How to Style a Graphic T-Shirt Affordably

Everybody has worn a t-shirt before, right? A t-shirt is considered to be a casual, yet affordable item in ones closet. Typically you may see people wearing a t-shirt with a pair of jeans or maybe even some sweatpants. T-shirts however, are not the oversized-frumpy looking pieces of clothing that many may remember wearing in gym class. Now, some of them are actually cute and flattering.

There are several ways to style a t-shirt. It can be worn with blazers, jeans, skirts, statement accessories, and much more…the possibilities are endless!

Since my style tends to be on the casual side most of the time, I decided to wear one of my favorite new graphic t-shirts. However, instead of wearing it with the usual pair of jeans, I decided to put my spin on it and give it a jazzy-dressy look.

I believe “a penny saved, is a penny earned”, so typically, I do not like to spend too much money on clothing and accessories. With that being said, I am happy to report that the cost of my entire outfit (excluding my handbag) is around $100!

Sequin Blazer – Dillard’s
Graphic T-Shirt – Shunmelson
Skirt – Old Navy
Tights – Target
Shoes – Audrey Brooke, Hylda Pump- DSW
Clutch – Love Cortnie
