Spring/Summer 2017 Trends: Graphic T-shirts

              They are everyone’s guilty pleasure that we can never seem to get enough of at any age. Whether it has a quote, slogan, fun design or logo across the chest whenever we find a graphic t-shirt that matches our personality we have to own it. Maybe they never left your wardrobe but, we do not always see printed t-shirts grace the runway as much as they did this past SS17 fashion week. From Giorgio Armani to Karl Lagerfeld and even Stella McCartney we saw designers dress these classic and comfortable statement pieces in so many different ways. Take a look at our favorite ways to style a graphic tee for both boys and girls that will leave them feeling like a trendsetter!

For him
            Whether you are trying to dress up a graphic t-shirt or dress down a suit this duo is going to make your little man look runway ready. We adore this match for every and any occasion because it has the perfect mix of casual and dressy that will leave him looking flawless. This past fall we saw Giorgio Armani send a light colored suit down the runway matched with a fun graphic top that featured Giorgio Armani’s face printed largely on the chest. Using this look as inspiration our favorite suit for this spring season is from Fendi, a light cotton shorts and blazer set that is in a versatile, pale blue shade that can be worn to any affair. Once you have found the perfect suit for him discover our boy’s shirts section and find the perfect top that matches his personality. Go for a simple charcoal, Lanvin t-shirt with the designer’s logo printed across the chest for a classic look or be edgy with a cool printed ‘Rock’ Zadig & Voltaire White t-shirt. Complete the look with a polished pair of navy patent-leather shoes from Fendi.


For her
            For our girl’s inspiration we loved the way Karl Lagerfeld matched one of his fun graphic ‘Karl’ logo tops with an edgy black leather skirt. To imitate this look, start with finding the perfect bottom to match your little girls style. For a girly girl, Little Marc Jacobs metallic rose gold skirt or a Moschino denim jean star skirt will make a statement as she struts her stuff around town. For more active girls, grab a fun printed skort to get that flowing skirt effect while giving them freedom to runaround. Everyone will envy her while wearing these gorgeous Young Versace’s navy floral printed bottoms that have the perfect amount of flare. Once you have found the perfect skirt, take a look at our girl’s tops section and explore all the various options we have like Little Eleven Paris Black ‘Girl Gang’ Shirt or tie-dye pink ‘I Woke Up Like This’ Emoji t-shirt. Mix and match patterns and colors to find the perfect look to suit their style and make a statement.


For both

           They will be comfortable, classic, and confident when sporting matching a funny quoted top like Little Eleven Paris daily emoji’s t-shirt with their favorite fitting jean bottoms. I know when I say jean bottoms the first set that come to mind are your classic blue jeans which are also an option but, let’s be bold this season! Karl Lagerfeld illustrates this match by sending down the SS17 runway a model in one of his classic ‘Kameo’ t-shirts with a daring red leopard pant. To mimic this style, pick up a pair of bright and sassy yellow bottoms like Chloe’s Canary yellow pants for her and Scotch Shrunk’s Mustard yellow jeans for him. To complete the look go for a bright contrasting color top like Karl Lagerfeld’s ‘Kameo’ in blue for him or a Eleven Paris red ‘Karl is my father’ shirt for her. Mix and match different style bottoms with all your favorite graphic tees to create a look that lets his or her personality shine!
