Tee shirts have been mainly designated as gym clothes or the uniform for doing chores, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Custom tees can be stylish and give an outfit a polished and pulled together look. Here are some tips for styling a casual Nashville outfit with a customized tee shirt.


Create a cohesive look by adding coordinating accessories. If your custom tee has a bright or dominant color, find accessories that are the same color for a sleek monochromatic look. You can also add accessories all in the same contrasting hue to make a stylish statement. From a belt to shoes, jewelry and a handbag you can build a stylish outfit around a customized tee shirt

Add a Blazer

The structure of a more professional looking blazer over a casual custom tee creates a look that is on trend. If opting to wear a blazer and custom tee, round out your ensemble with fitted or slim fit pants and heels or ballet flats. This look can also be paired with jeans which are still casual, but slightly dresses up your jeans. Whether worn to work or brunch rocking a blazer and custom tee is a polished look.

Pair With a Maxi Skirt

The flow of a maxi skirt makes a nice contrast with a more fitted custom tee. If you leave the tee untucked add a belt to add definition. Wear with comfortable sandals or even sneakers. This casual, bohemian look is ideal for lazy weekends.

Wear a Moto Jacket

The fitted silhouette of a moto jacket offers a nice contrast to the looser fit of a tee shirt. This look plays off of the straight lines of the jacket and the more loose fit of the tee. Pair with boots or even high heels to round out the look.

Coordinate with Shorts and Ankle Boots

Shorts and tees are two articles of clothing known for being very casual. Create an edgier version of this classic look by tucking the tee in and pairing with ankle boots. This elevates the look, making it more stylish and yet still spot on and comfortable. If there is a slight chill in the air add a pair of tights under the shorts and grab a blazer to round out the look.

Dress Down a Dress

Throw a custom graphic tee over a dress to create a completely different look. This works with all sorts of dresses and adds versatility to your wardrobe. Layering a tee over a dress is also a way to tone down the formality of a fancier dress and make it better suited to more casual affairs and excursions.

Layer Over a Dress Shirt

Wearing a short sleeve tee over a long sleeve tee is a tried and true method to stay warm. Layer a tee over a dress shirt for a stylish way to stay warm and look-on trend. Roll the sleeves of the dress shirt for a more casual and comfortable look.

Match to a Skirt

Whether a structured pencil skirt or a knee-length A-line skirt, pair with a custom tee to make for a stylish outfit. Partially tuck the shirt in to avoid looking frumpy, particularly if wearing a high waisted skirt. Wear with heels or open sandals for a carefree and summery look. Make the outfit more cold weather appropriate with platform shoes and tall boots.

Wear with Denim

Denim is a staple and always looks good with a tee shirt. Whether worn with jeans or a denim jacket you will immediately have a look that is quintessential Americana.

Go For the Unexpected

If you have a piece that is a little bit out there, you can reel in the look with a custom tee. From a tulle skirt to leather pants or a crocheted vest a tee will help to anchor the look while allowing a unique part of the outfit to stand out.

Show Your Style

There are countless ways to style custom tees. When creating your look go for something that is comfortable and speaks to your style. Tees can make formal articles of clothing more casual to expand the versatility of your wardrobe.
