Graphic tees often seem like a trend made to give style to people who don’t naturally have it. (Britney’s message tees, for instance? Horrible.) But when done correctly, they can look smart under a jacket or cardigan. Lean toward one-of-a-kind graphics, and hand-crafted (but not craft-y) screen prints. Artistry takes a t-shirt from casual to chic. Asymmetry adds something special, where a centered print looks mass produced. Humor can make or break a statement shirt, so always keep it subtle.
Or try a tee with real meaning–Purchases of this one benefit charities in Africa.
