Graphic Tees – Fall Fashion Forward Trend

How you can stand out from the crowd wearing graphic tees

How can you stand out from the crowd while still following a fashion trend? When it comes to fashion you should take in consideration this rule: “don’t follow the crowd”, don’t blend in to look the same. Maybe you’re puzzled but this is one of the fascinating things about fashion –  how you can adopt the trend and preserve your personality, feel confident and comfortable while still being you.

Graphic tees have been a huge trend and in the beginning I wasn’t quite attracted by this fashion trend. Living at the beach in a tourism area I can see graphic tees on many people all year round.  Graphic tees are  summer staples for the beach and everybody who lives or vacation here embraces this fashion – forward trend.  So I wondered: how may I stand out from the crowd? The answer came right away when I read that Catherine Malandrino, a great French designer,  has launched her DesignNation Collection at Kohl’s. I immediately felt in love with her collection and, of course, I started making wishes. As my birthday was coming up soon I was sure my wish will come true and new pieces will hang in my wardrobe under the signature of Catherine Malandrino. The graphic tee chic and classic is one of the pieces I fell in love with. I could wear it every day, mixing and matching it with almost everything. Dressed down or up, the graphic tee is already a staple item in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect graphic tee that I was looking for: trendy and chic with a modern french twist that perfectly fits my everyday lifestyle. The graphic tee paired with jeans is an interesting combination of two fashion  trends in a perfect casual outfit. Dare you to be bold!

Here are a few suggestions on  how to wear graphic tees. For the fall crispy days layer up  graphic tees with a motor leather jacket or even better with a vintage one, getting a casual coolness and an effortless look . Graphic tees are basically worn for casual occasions. You can still show taste for style even if you wear a graphic tee at any occasions.  Mixing and matching a graphic tee with a blazer, cardigan, maxi skirt, or trousers it’s all the fun you can have while showing off your personality. Be bold and creative, let your imagination run wild beyond the fashion trends and make a statement  with a graphic tee.

I love any type of graphic tees that triggers memory and helps you travel into the past. I love the gender bending the graphic tees allows for, strongly resurfacing from our teen years. I love the role the graphic tees are playing in the American fashion, boosting the power of expressiveness of both the young and older generations.  I also love the Parisian chic, Catherine Malandrino’s French style I immediately fell in love with. Paris, je t-aime!
