Graphic T-shirts have come a long way yet remain to be a bone of contention in the realm of men’s fashion. For a few, it is an effortless style worn only during casual, laid-back occasions, but for most of them, it’s a way of expressing themselves through tees. If you belong to either of the categories, JCPenney brings you a classic collection of men’s graphic T-shirts with modern fits. Choose tees that speak your mind or lean into your favorite pop culture. That said, we are here to help you decode the four elements of bringing graphic tees into your stylish wardrobe.
Nail The Fit
Graphic tees have reached a whole new level of artiness in recent years. Whatever may be your hobby, we have a tee for that. But the first rule of any tee is to nail the perfect fit. Make sure it’s not too long or too big. Pick a tee that contours your body and sits around your hip. If you’re trying graphic tees for the first time, focus on the message that you’re trying to convey, or just go for a great picture. The foundation of a good graphic tee is black or white – not colored or tie-and-dye.
The Rocker Look
Relive the glory days of pop culture and music when you decide to wiggle yourself into a tee that speaks of your favorite things. Whether you’re a metal head or want to lean into the grunge style, there are plenty to go by. The key to styling these tees is to delve into the nostalgic style of your favorite singer or the era and should match the rest of your look. A cool Beatles T-shirt cannot be matched with chinos and loafers. Consider faded jeans or distressed denim with Chelsea boots.
How to Style Graphic Tees with Layers
A solid tee is easier to layer with plenty of things that already exist in your wardrobe. Similarly, layering graphic tees is no rocket science. Planning to wear your favorite TV show graphic tee? Try it with a jean jacket, a casual button-up shirt, or a sports jacket. For instance, opt for a black graphic tee and layer it with a plaid button-up shirt. The idea is not to look put together but effortless and stylish at the same time. Stick to your favorite show’s faded tee and pair it with lived-in denim or shorts with sneakers.
The Dressed-Down Business Look
A graphic tee with a blazer might sound bizarre for most of us, but this style is here to stay. The trick here is to let your tee do most of the talking. For instance, grab a unique superhero tee and keep everything simple. A pair of classic blue wash jeans, minimalistic sneakers, and a simple grey or blue blazer should do the trick.
