Don’t Throw Away Your Graphic Tees—Here’s How Celebs Are Wearing Them

My name is Parker McKenna Posey! I am a full-time actress, and in between takes I am super into fashion. I’m constantly working on my swimwear line, Honeydip, or modeling for a variety of fashion brands. (My brand Honeydip is releasing our Spring collection next month and we’re looking forward to venturing out into other opportunities aside from swimwear later this year—stay tuned!) But back to me. Even though you’ll see me glammed up on my Instagram a lot of the time (@parkermckennaaa), I also love being comfy and casual. I love a good glittery dress, but I also love a good graphic tee. Graphic tees in particular are among my favorite pieces because you can style them in a bunch of different ways depending on your desired look. You can dress them down for a casual day out, or up for date night—yes, you can dress graphic tees up! Check out my favorite ways to style graphic tees below.

Here are a few ways to style graphic tees, inspired by our favorite celebs to follow.

When I’m going for a casual look, I love to pair an oversized graphic tee with sneakers. Adding a personal touch to your oversized tee is super dope and creative.

Pairing a cute heel with a classic slip dress and a statement oversized tee is a cool but sexy look for a date night that doesn’t scream “trying too hard”.

My go-to look whenever I go out is an oversized tee with heeled boots—over-the-knee if you’re fancy inspired by Ariana Grande (and why wouldn’t you be?). I prefer a chunkier heel on my boots, but if you can walk with a stiletto heel, more power to you. The boots/tee combo has become one of my personal favorites.

This is not necessarily inspired by a celebrity, but all the same, it’s one of my favorite ways to wear a graphic tee. I’ve been obsessing over Doc Martens lately! They’ve been my go-to recently, especially when paired with an oversized tee! You can change this look out for denim shorts, any color biker shorts, even different skirt options (leather, pleated, etc.), and they still work.

Your oversized graphic tees aren’t just for the gym or sleeping in anymore. If you follow some of these tips, you can dress like a celeb and get more use out of all your old dELiA’s tees. Win-win! And if you want to connect with me, I’m always posting my outfit inspo on my Instagram at @parkermckennaaa, or you can catch me on my new show, Games People Play, on BET this spring.
