Graphic tees can add a laidback playfulness to your outfits and tone down statement dresses or skirts, but selecting one that doesn’t scream “‘I’m at a bachelorette party” or skew too young (your 13-year-old self loved the Abercrombie graphic logo tops) can be difficult. The trick is to look for designs that are cheeky, not cheesy, and styles you’d feel comfortable wearing around your friends and family.
We’ve identified 11 such options—all from Amazon. The styles span from tie-dye palm tree graphic shirts to the iconic boob outline tee (which you can wear while drinking out of your boob outline coffee mug). The tees all offer a dose of personality to your ensembles without throwing your fashion back to your teenage years. Sounds ideal, right? Click ahead to shop all the tees—and then check out the best leggings we’ve found on Amazon.
If the all-over graphic print is not in your style vocabulary, try wearing a smaller design like this multicolored palm trees tee from Re/Done. The graphic blends in with the tie-dye background, giving it a fresh take for summer.
