Casual Sophistication

Wearing a graphic tee to work when it's not casual Friday? A total do! Here are three ways to make your go-to T-shirt work professionally.

Despite the fashion myth, you can wear a graphic tee to the office and look polished. But you must keep a few rules in mind to avoid looking unprofessional.

Follow our "tee guide" below, and you'll look effortlessly cool, yet totally posh for your 9 to 5 life.

1

No jeans, please

If you're testing out a graphic tee on a non-casual day, ensure you're not wearing jeans. (Save those for the weekend.) Tuck a graphic tee into a tailored pair of trousers with a fitted blazer, and you'll not only look put together, but regal as well.

Amp up your jewels

Want to make a basic graphic tee totally luxe? Add glitzy jewels! A bold necklace will distract your colleagues from your tee — especially when layered with something professional, like a fitted jacket.
