I cannot express how obsessed I am with graphic tees and sweaters right now. Because they are so easy to dress up or dress down, they’re a closet staple.
And, you can find a ton of affordable graphic tees from places like Amazon, Shein, Boohoo, and Walmart. Check out my recent post with 20 graphic tees under $20 for some ideas.
After that post, I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to style a graphic tee.
So, I rounded up some different looks ranging from edgy with leather to feminine and tulle.
Literally, you can create so many looks!

Here is the link to the graphic tee I am wearing in this post. It is seriously one of my favorites. It’s super soft, made with a Bella & Canvas tee, nicely distressed for that vintage look, and the graphic isn’t stiff or rigid.
11 Ways to Style a Graphic Tee
Leather on leather. Or in this case, faux-leather all over. For this look, I loosely tuck my tee into the skirt, wearing it near my natural waist. I paired it with my current favorite sandals which are a steal on Amazon.
You can wear it with or without a leather jacket.
A simple way to style a graphic tee is by layering it over a dress. Be sure the dress is not extremely loose-fitting or bulky. I paired mine with this cute striped t-shirt dress from Shein. Then, you can easily tie the front of the shirt to give yourself more defined waist.
Want a more feminine look? I love the way this graphic tee goes so well with a mid-length tulle skirt. I snagged this one on Amazon, and they have a ton of different colors!
You can opt to add a jacket like the cropped denim jacket above for an added layer of interest or wear it as is. I also added a 1.5″ belt to really bring focus to my waist.
Like any good shirt, you can style a graphic tee with a pair of cute jeans. For spring and fall, you can style it with some boots, like these Hunter boots.
To define your body shape more, tuck your shirt in and add a belt. Then, choose your layer style. I layered this look with both the faux-leather jacket from above and a red flannel. Each style puts out a different vibe depending on what situation you will be in.
Sporty, comfy, and cute? Yes, please! Tuck your graphic tee into a pair of lightweight joggers to accentuate your shape. Then add a pair of sandals or sneakers.

As summer approaches, you’ll want to pair your graphic tee with some denim shorts. I tied up my shirt on the side and added this adorable leopard printed duster.
Oh yes, you can most certainly style a graphic tee with leggings. I love this black on black look. My leggings are the Lululemon Wunder Under Crops. I included a more affordable dupe down below.
And to break up the stark black figure, I like to tie a flannel around my waist.
I paired this outfit with some of my favorite, most-comfortable sandals from Birkenstock.
