Pull Off the Look: A Graphic Tee & Blazer

If chocolate-covered bacon taught us anything, it’s that unexpected combos can really hit it out of the park. So, this month, pull two items from your closet that you’d never dare wear together – your precisely tailored blazer and your worn-in graphic tee – then, dare. And watch as everyone else follows suit.

Here’s how to do it right.

How to Pair a Blazer with a Graphic Tee

On top: Pick a tee with a solid base color and strong graphic. (Leave it untucked.) Then add a blazer in black, navy, or grey.

On bottom: Your best bet? Denim. Go for a fail-safe dark-blue wash or wear black narrow-leg jeans for a bit of rock ‘n’ roll edge.

On your feet: Play it cool in trendy sneakers. And if you want to up the level of polish, finish the look with leather or suede chukkas.

Want to shop the look? Our Graphic Tees & Blazers: Wear Them Together Boutique opens Tuesday, April 1 at 11AM ET.
