My take on the graphic tee: I’m wearing a t-shirt by 2k Gingham from the Basquiat exhibition a while back. Simple and neat, right? Complicated shirts with long or ridiculous slogans cause too much unwanted attention to your chest area and perpetuate lame pick-up lines. And hey, if a guy were to come up to me while I wear this shirt and attempts to start a conversation about the artist, I’d definitely hit it. I also paired the tee with some skinny jeans and red accessories and in case you can’t tell, I’m also wearing red lipstick ;)
Another great example of a graphic tee can come from a band’s merch table or website. In many cases, band tees are designed by various artists and can add a unique touch to any outfit. For example, here’s Lulu in shorts and a blazer with her No Age shirt.
Chain stores can also have the graphic tee that you’re looking for but you have to put some sort of effort into finding one that doesn’t suck (hahh). My fellow ugly Linda posted an outfit with a great shirt from Uniqlo which says “Mothra vs. Godzilla”. GAHH SO AWESOME!
Sorry if that’s not as coherent as it should be; my internet still isn’t working and I’m still cranky :/
