To give you some graphic tee inspo, I’ve pulled some inspirational looks on how you can dress up your graphic tee with a pantsuit or dress it down with a statement skirt. Take a look at all T&J Design graphic tees to help you create this look!

Dress it Down!

Try pairing your graphic tee with a statement skirt to create a chic look you can wear for a GNO or even a date night!

Miss USA from 2012, Olivia Culpo, looking so chic in a high waisted leather skirt and the famous, Power Rangers, graphic tee! Keeping leather alive, you can add a leather jacket just how Culpo did! She looks super fierce, and I’m loving it!

I really love this look. If you have a sequin skirt, a graphic tee would love PERFECT with it! I love how she styled this with a pair of sneakers. It just adds more to the look to keep it casual yet still in a way dressy. The added clutch always helps!

Absolutely loving this heart graphic tee and how its styled. If you have a patterned pencil skirt, these are so great to pair with your graphic tee. Try it with a different colored shoe to get a fun look. Get similar shirt here!

Pleated skirts are super trendy right now. Try styling your skirt with a graphic tee. Add a belt and a leather jacket for a fashionable look!

Dress it up!

Work in the fashion world or wish you did? These looks will give you the best of both worlds. Try styling your graphic tee with a pantsuit. You’ll turn heads and look instantly chic.

Have a gray pantsuit? Pair it with a colorful graphic tee or maybe a boy band tee and some colored pumps. You’ll look street style in a matter of seconds.

If you have a statement pantsuit, keep your graphic tee simple and make sure its a neutral color. Love how this outfit looks. Make sure to accessorize!

A metallic pant suit already speaks for itself so you can either keep a simple graphic tee or wear a colorful one! Either way, these look is super trendy.

Want to try something different? Try this! Adidas is probably one of the most popular brands¬†at the moment. Get a traditional Adidas shirt and pair it with your patterned pantsuit. You’ll look weirdly sophisticated, but in a good fashionable way ūüôā

1. What is your favorite part about blogging?
Do we have to pick just one?! Without a doubt, it has to be working alongside each other. We are best friends and we get to spend every day together! We often refer to one another as the yin and yang. We are the perfect complement to each other and our creativity plays off of one another.

2. How did you girls meet?

This has to be one of our favorite questions! Of course we have a story behind it. Shall we start with Once upon a time… ?

We met by a combination of serendipity and magic at a Fire & Ice party. Caitlin was doing the PR and Dani came with a mutual friend. We began talking at had an instant soul-sister connection. Soon enough, we became roommates and moved into the glam pad that will forever be remembered as our life-size Dollhouse.

Once Upon a Dollhouse was officially launched in January, 2016 to chronicle our best friend adventures and celebrate the beauty of life. In this world, our ultimate goal is to share positivity and inspire our fans and followers to become their healthiest, happiest self.
