Graphic Tee + Cozy Cardigan + Distressed Denim

When it comes to a comfortable, casual, easy, yet stylish, outfit that I find myself wearing over and over lately, it would have to be jeans, a tee, and a cozy cardigan. The great thing about this fashion formula is that it’s currently trending, too, so you’ll be able to find each element of the look everywhere. Try this formula for an effortlessly chic street style look.

Graphic Tee + Cozy Cardigan + Distressed Denim = Effortlessly Chic Street Style

This look can be worn to run errands on a Saturday afternoon with a pair of cool kicks just as easily as it can be worn out with your girlfriends to dinner by adding a pair of heels. And as graphic tees are all the rage these days, there are so many fun options out there at all different price points.

Street Style Looks We Love

What I’m Wearing

For my outfit, I wore my favorite fringe distressed jeans (also seen recently here) with my new Chanel tee which I got on my recent trip to Vegas. The tee part of their Cuba inspired resort collection While, sadly, Chanel isn’t available online, I’ve linked tons of graphic tees below that I absolutely love – some of which take on a similar feel to this one!

I paired it with my By Malene Birger cozy cardigan, Eugenia Kim hat, Dior double pearl earrings (inexpensive option here), Stella McCartney sunglasses (similar options here and here), Gucci shoes, Chanel bag (from The Vintage Contessa), Nars ‘Scarlet Empress’ lipstick, and I Cannoli Wear OPI nail polish. Indeed, I’ve been wearing this fashion formula a lot lately!

How You Can Wear It

As we mentioned above, the options out there for the elements in this look are vast! So we’ve rounded up some of our very favorites for each outfit element of the formula.
