After a period of market oversaturation caused by the over-licensing of graphics and an abundance of logo T-shirts at teen retail stores, graphic tees are now back in our good graces.
BoF reports that “graphic T-shirts are among the hardest working items for cult brands and retailers. Retailers, distributors and brands at the trend-sensitive edge are seeing a resurgence of interest in T-shirts, specifically for smaller and hard-to-find labels.”
If you’re looking for inspiration on how to wear your graphic T-shirts, have a look at this roundup on WhoWhatWear, or on Pinterest. Not surprisingly, I myself am most drawn to the looks that have a dressy element to them, like this bold Sporty Luxe suit, or this Summer-y plaid skirt outfit.
