What I Wore: Skirt (Hell Bunny), Shoes (Old Navy), Shirt (Old Navy), Necklace (Popbasic; Similar Here)
I thought I'd shunned- or perhaps out-grown- all graphic tees after graduating college (now some five years ago!), but here I am again. Maybe it's a fad, maybe it's too young (The Boy certainly did not understand this tee's appeal, calling it "distracting"), but... J'adore this shirt. And yeah, graphic tees being a fad may be debatable but there's no such a debate about slapping on foreign phrases on shirts- that's a fad for sure.
Of course, graphic tees can't exactly be worn to work, and they say something (quite literally) about you. I mean, you can look at a person's shirt and know something about them. Do they like Mickey Mouse, a hot new band, or Harley Davidson? Do they belong to the boy scouts, a church group, and environmental activist group? Certainly, that's what you'd know about my college self based on my shirts- But in this case knowing that I love love doesn't seem to like it would be too much a stain on any first impression I might make, and the minimalist look appealed. The marriage of high/low felt edgy and fresh- after all a T-shirt with a full skirt and red lipstick doesn't get much more high/low. So- where do you stand on graphics on clothes? Pros? Cons? I'd love to hear you weigh in.
