My answer to every outfit, wintertime version: graphic sweatshirts. You may have seen me rocking many a graphic tee over the years. They have that casual, cool vibe I’m always going for, and pair well with otherwise dressier/preppier pieces. I can’t look too put-together or too plain, and having some print element is…my thing.

Street Style Inspo: 3 Cool Graphic Sweatshirt Outfit Ideas

Outfit Idea 1: Preppy Vibe – Add Plaid Pants

I love this combo because it’s a little more unexpected. This could work with any comfy dress pants really to make them weekend-wearable. Pop a camel coat over top for added warmth.

Outfit Idea 2: Rainy Day Momiform – With Coated Denim & A Raincoat

The graphic sweatshirt here adds some visual interest to an outfit that would otherwise be pretty dark. Finding graphic tees or sweatshirts with text that isn’t cheesy is sometimes tricky, but city or country names are always a good neutral choice. This is a big part of my roundup because there are plenty of ridiculous choices out there, so tasteful finds are hard to come by!

Outfit Idea 3: Make It Edgy – Wear A Leather Jacket & Animal Print Boots

We’re heading to Disney World later this year with my whole fam, so vintage Mickey has made it into my current rotation, even though typically I’d steer away from any and all character shirts. Haha. But if there’s something you love, like an old sweatshirt like this one, you can toughen it up with a moto jacket and snake print boots… to veer away from the “is that grown-up wearing a cartoon?” territory and balance it out with your badass self.
