I think what drew me to this T-shirt was the graphic’s striking resemblance to the iconic lips that sing the opening song of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a classic Halloween flick I religiously watch every October. And how perfect is it that these lips are in my now-signature color? A leather skirt is the perfect piece to pair with a graphic tee for a look that transitions easily from day to night, and Grafitee is the perfect place to find graphics that will help you stand out.

Grafitee is an online marketplace dedicated exclusively to cool graphic T-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, and accessories. Since I deeply value creativity and self-expression, I’m especially excited to team up with Grafitee, a company that works hard to curate fresh graphics from over 100 independent brands from all over the world. Just like the Grafitee team, I believe that graphic T-shirts are a fun and effective way to demonstrate personality through style. I’m a goofball, a stoner, a stylist, and a lover of slang, so I instantly fell in love with the “Duper Sope” tee by MNKR, one of Grafitee’s signature pieces. Originally a magazine that celebrates the art of graphic apparel, Grafitee has been working towards establishing their amazing new online shop since 2008, and their endless selection of clever, edgy, artistic, not to mention affordable and high-quality graphics will seriously spruce up your street style swag.

Since we tend to think of the T-shirt as denim’s official significant other, I decided to break the mold (and break the totally stupid No-White-After-Labor-Day rule) by pairing my rad new tee with these luxe ivory trousers. To get more wear out of your dressy tailored pants, try putting them together with a graphic tee and your favorite funky sneakers. I chose these platform sneakers because they help elongate the relaxed trousers. Sandwiching the sophisticated pants in between punk-grunge pieces also creates balance and prevents them from looking misplaced. Add a sweater around the waist, tattoo choker, and beanie for good measure. The results? Duper sope.

Stay tuned for more cool stuff by Grafitee, and in the meantime, don’t blame me when you realize you’ve just spent two hours pouring over their site. Do feel free to thank me when you find perfect new additions to your wardrobe.
