2 Different Ways to Wear Graphic Tees And Where to Buy Them For Under $50

First up, exciting news! I was featured over on sharing my top pregnancy style tips!

5 months into #6MonthsWithoutShopping, and I'm really getting uninspired with my wardrobe. I'm trying to solve that problem by picking pieces that haven't been worn in a while, as well as implementing any outfit inspiration I come across as soon as possible.

Below are two outfits with my graphic tees. I was inspired to try them after seeing Sheila rocking one of her graphic tees in an unexpected combination, and it got me thinking not only of wearing my graphic tees again, but also trying some different outfit ideas.

What I wore:

graphic tee and skinny jeans outfit with a pink vest and LV Neverfull bag | Away From Blue

pink vest, Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | Away From The Blue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Monsterthreads star print graphic tee
JeansJeanswest Bindi prima skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats (on sale in blackand super cute in cherry print!)
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This graphic tee is one of the newest ones in my wardrobe, and a firm favourite. It was a gift from my bestie and I love the print and colour. While I'd set myself the goal of wearing more of my graphic tees I'd also recently unboxed my jeans for autumn and so have been trying to wear all of them as well. I wasn't too sure if these dark Prima jeans looked too monochrome with the navy tee, so I added the pink vest to break the outfit up a little.

I like adding this pink vest to monochrome outfits, have worn it that way a few times. I felt the vest dressed up the jeans and tee outfit a little too for Baby Boy's specialist appointment at the Mater.

The Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag is the perfect one for carrying around the now pretty big file with all of Baby Boy's medical documents.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, pink vest, moon graphic tee, Jeanswest Prima jeans, gold mouse flats, Louis Vuitton neverfull MM.

Other ways to wearpink vest worn two ways, moon graphic tee and pink blazer, Jeanswest Prima jeans and red cardi in spring, gold mouse flats and maxi dress, Louis Vuitton neverfull and striped skirt.

Perfect for pregnancy: graphic tee in the third trimester, skinny jeans in the second trimester with a belly band, mouse flats and maternity wrap dress, neverfull at 38 weeks pregnant.

Graphic Tees Under $50:

What I wore:

threadless graphic tee and printed pleated aline skirt green and yellow OOTD | AwayFromBlue

printed skirt, Rebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey | AwayFromTheBlue
Tee: Threadless 'Stone Jungle' tee
Skirt: Garfunkle Australia pleated print skirt
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB mini in soft grey

Why I wore it:

I'm still so unsure about this outfit! I'm glad I tried it but am not convinced enough to want to rewear this. This is the outfit I was inspired to create after seeing how Sheila wore her 'jellydeer' tee. I've worn green and yellow before but never paired a graphic tee with this printed skirt.

A very new outfit for me and I went back and forth between liking it and wishing I'd worn something different through the day as I ran errands and took Baby Boy for his weekly weigh. It seemed pretty popular on Instagram though! This skirt is always complimented, it really is so pretty and I'm glad I'm actually wearing it more often now and not just writing that I should.

Last worn: green graphic tee, pleated and printed skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff MAM bag.

Other ways to weargreen graphic tee and hoodie, pleated and printed skirt with navy tank, black ballet flats and flaresMAM and pencil skirts in the office.

Perfect for pregnancy: printed skirt hiding an early second trimester baby bump, MAM Bag and maternity denim.

How You Can Wear It:

Graphic tees look so good with jeans, but it's nice to mix things up a little and try to wear them in new ways. Add a fun layer like a vest or blazer for some extra colour and a different look for a classic jeans and tee outfit. You can even try pairing a graphic tee with a fuller skirt for a different silhouette.

  1. I like the skirt a lot, but I am not too keen on the combo. Printed shirts are in my world usually paired with denim and a jacket, very uninspired, I know.

  2. I think you did a great job of your graphic tees, Mica! Well done! I love the pink vest with the top outfit - the pink does help add a little colour interest.

    I adore the second outfit - this is the most successful, I think. Maybe it's just a different look for you, so you're not quite sure just yet, but I love it. Threadless does great tees!

  3. This first outfit look comfy! I actually like that second look with the yellow and black skirt Mica. Perhaps adding a pop of a yellow necklace or earrings would help. I don't have many graphic Tees but have recently bought a stash of them for summertime. <3 Hope you have a wonderful weekend. x/Madison

  4. Hi! I love how you styled your tees! Stay encouraged because your challenge and outfits are inspiring! Pray you have a wonderful weekend!


  5. Cute outfits! I always struggle to figure out how to dress up my t-shirts so I loved these ideas!

  6. The styling with the skirt is very daring and works in my book. Sometimes we have to step out of our own box and its a marvel how we can pull off totally different looks just by pairing them with unexpected items from our own closet.

  7. Love the yellow skirt! And thanks for the ideas. My dresser is FULL of graphic tees and I find myself just wearing them with jeans.

  8. Oh I love that yellow print skirt, it's so pretty! And the vest + graphic tee combo in your first look is so fun, I love that combination. I need to add more graphic tees to my closet, they really do go with so many things.

  9. I love that yellow skirt and the way a graphic tee dresses it down. It was a winning combination! I only have one graphic tee I think, I should pull it out more!

  10. The tee in your first pic is so cute! And I struggle to pair graphic tees with skirts too, but your second outfit is so fun!

  11. Loving look 2! That color combo is so fun :)
    Congrats on getting featured too, that's so cool! Hope you're doing well Mica :D

  12. Love graphic tees, and I especially love how you styled it with the printed skirt! It gives me inspo to style my graphic sweater with a printed skirt... now if only I had one! xx

  13. That first graphic tee that was a gift from your bestie is so cute...and I love how you styled it by layering it with a longer vest and pairing it with jeans. Moon print is always fun!

    The second graphic tee is also very chic. Its green matches nicely with the yellow/black skirt. The combination of colours in the second outfit is fabulous!

  14. Oh! I've just discovered mydeal and am seriously impressed with their homewares. I didn't know they had a blog too, congrats on being featured! I can never find graphic tees I like - and in the UK I didn't see the point as I always had to wear a jumper over them anyway - but I think I might get into them here in the warmer weather, and if I can find some designs I like. I'm going to have a look at the places you got yours...

  15. Wow, I am so impressed that you have gone five months without shopping! That is amazing and so inspirational. I love "shopping" in my closet for things I forgot about or haven't worn in ages. Graphic tees are amazing and perfect to style up and down. Both these looks are fab! xoxo, Christine

  16. Great post!! I love that you made allowances for a pregnant version too! What a great idea! Graphic tees are so versatile and we are seeing them used in both styled outfits and casual looks!

  17. Congratulations Mica on the feature! I'm so proud of you. I love statement tees. They can be fun.

  18. I love the graphic tee and sleeveless jacket combo, it looks great! Xx

  19. If it's the weekend, you can bet I am in a graphic tee! I'm a total nerd though, so they are usually Star Wars, Harry Potter, or some sort of movie along those lines. (; Every once in awhile, when I think I can get away with it, I'll wear them on a Friday to work. Several of my coworkers too! Dressed with with a cardigan or blazer of course.

  20. I love the way you counterbalanced the casual element of the t-shirts with more feminine pieces, it's perfect Mica!
