Graphic Tees for the Holidays: With a Blazer

Graphic Tees for the Holidays: With a Blazer


I'm pretty convinced that there are two things that you already have in your closet that are all you need for holiday outfits: a graphic t-shirt and a blazer/jacket. If you look at these two outfits below, they're basically the same outfit. There's a tough element (skinny black pants, boyfriend jeans) + a graphic tshirt on a neutral background (which I think is the most grown up way to way a graphic t-shirt) +a blazer with some structure + something whimsical, playful, or that makes you smile. On the right, it's the dots on the rolled up sleeves and the white Chucks. On the left, it's the big sparkly necklace and the boho hair and the glasses.



So that's it: something tough+ graphic tee + blazer + something whimsical 

I think this combination could take you to several events this time of year-shopping, to a holiday party, baking cookies with friends, or going on a December or January date. I'd love for you to wear a leather skirt as the "something tough" or sub in velvet leggings on the bottom and wear a leather jacket as the "something tough." You could also wear a big full skirt (whimsical, makes me smile, unexpected in this outfit), a leather jacket, the graphic tshirt, and you're done.

If you don't have a t-shirt in mind, try somewhere cheap like Old Navy or make your own. Don't spend a lot if this isn't a style you typically wear. Just get something soft on a neutral background and wear if a few times to see if you like the look.

  1. I love this look! So much fun - graphic tee, something tough, something whimsical, blazer. Although I'd probably use my leather jacket as my "tough" with softer bottom layer. Whee! I'm going to wear this to the family Christmas party next weekend! :oD

  2. Would a dark denim blazer work over black velvet or should I go with a lighter color on bottom?

    1. Fun! I love a white blazer with a graphic tshirt, maybe a gray one like above? Or with a white sweater underneath and jeans?
