If you're a frequent reader of my blog you know I wear my collection of graphic t-shirts fairly often and year round. They're comfy while adding extra pattern and color to an outfit. Do you have a concert t-shirt lying around that you've only ever worn with jeans? It can be worn so many other ways! Let me help you expand your t-shirt style options! A little while back I showcased some cute ways to wear graphic tees during the summer. Now here are some ways I've styled my t-shirts when it's cool outside!

One of my favorite casual outfit equations is shorts + t-shirt + tights (+ sometimes cardigan). Even though it's too cold for bare legs, shorts are still an option if tights are layered underneath. I also tend to swap out the shorts for a mini skirt of some sort. All of these looks, except number four, feature shorts or skirts simply because I own a lot of those pieces.
There's a way to make jeans and a t-shirt look more interesting too though! I do it by tucking the shirt into some high-waisted jeans to define my waist. Then I add cool shoes, jewelry, and a patterned or colorful coat or cardigan. Boom. You've transformed jeans and a t-shirt into a fun look!
I'm also a fan of styling graphic t-shirts with blazers. The juxtapositon of a super casual shirt and the structured fit of a blazer is fantastic. You can see me doing this in outfit two, four, six, and eleven. Bonus points if the blazer is patterned!

I think the trick to making a t-shirt outfit interesting is to play with color and pattern. That's especially easy when it's cold outside because you can add plenty of layers. Treat the t-shirt like any other patterned top in your wardrobe. Wearing them in non-traditional ways is modern and fun!
I hope you got a few ideas about how to style up the t-shirts you have lying around. If anything, maybe one of these pictures gave you an outfit idea! Have a fantastic start to your week!
