They say history always repeats itself. This holds true even in the fashion industry where the major graphic tees trend from the 1960s and ’70s seems to be undergoing a renaissance with an added evolutionary factor. Initially, graphic tees only had band symbols or slogans printed on them, but these days they have become an object of self-expression and are used to intimate personal preferences and opinions since they can even be custom made. From words, quotes, silly cartoons to contemporary art, you can have anything printed on them.

You can either choose to tuck the shirt in for the vintage style or keep it out for the easy-going style. Either way, the pants are sure to bring out your retro side, pair it with some tinted sunglasses to complete the look. You can opt for colored trousers but if you want to put emphasis on the shirt’s print, plan black pants will do the job.
4. Coats, kimonos, and jackets: this is for those of you that want comfort over anything else but also want to be in trend. Depending on what you like, you can match up your tees with long trench-coats, suede, or moto jackets with skinny jeans and boots. You can also go for loose kimonos which can be long or short, with patterns or simple, and wear them with shorts or skinny jeans. The last option is sure to give those vacation in another country or magical summer vibe.
5. Denim shorts and skirts: for all our rebel hearts out there, that are ready to fight against the world, this combination was made just for you. Get a custom graphic tee that speaks to your soul and wear it with some denim shorts or a short denim skirt and a casual pair of sneakers.
