How to Wear Fall's Graphic T-Shirt Trend Like a Celeb

Stylish women everywhere have a new wardrobe staple, and if it's not already in your closet, trust me, it should be! I'm talking about the graphic t-shirt, one of Fall's most wearable and versatile trends. I love it because it adds instant cool cred to just about any look. Plus, this is one fashion favorite that's actually shoppable across all price points and sizes (I wear a size 12-16), making it the perfect piece to wear and layer all season long.

Sure, you can throw one on with a pair of jeans and look great, but what if you want to add more wow factor? For next-level outfit inspo, I love to see how celebs and influencers are wearing a trend . . . and then re-create their looks in my size.

When it comes to graphic tees, a few ladies got the dressed-up-meets-dressed-down vibe exactly right. I'm talking about Nina Garcia's sequined look, Olivia Munn's edgy take, and Giovanna Battaglia's to-die-for rainbow ensemble. Each look oozes style and is surprisingly easy to steal; keep reading for the how-to!


Olivia Munn looks drop-dead sexy thanks to a monochromatic color palette and killer accessories. Start with an edgy black mini, like this one by Forever 21 (available sizes 0X-3X), and over-the-knee-boots (I love Stuart Weitzman's Lowland pair, available up to a size 12W). Add oversize hoop earrings and a classic concert tee for an I'm-with-the-band feel. Finally, a structured, ladylike bag, like this one by Kate Spade, is the perfect antidote to all the sexy!


Giovanna Battaglia is hands down one of the chicest women on the planet, and her signature take on the graphic t-shirt trend proves that sometimes more really is more. The real statement here is the psychedelic Gucci skirt, but this knit version by Kenzo (available up to size XL) packs just as much punch at a fraction of the price. A cosmic-themed t-shirt (this Forever 21 version is available up to size 3X) looks so much cooler than basic solid black, while a candy-pink clutch and pink heels are unexpectedly perfect together. And don't forget your boss-lady game face!


No question, Nina Garcia's head-to-toe look is out of this world! As the host of this season's Behind the Seams, a web series for Project Runway fans, I've been drooling over Nina's looks on a daily basis during filming, and this one nearly put me over the edge. I say keep the sequins but swap the skirt for pants to add some downtown edge. These blue Eloquii sequin trousers (available sizes 14=28) scream rocker-chic, especially when paired with leopard heels (this pair by Margaux goes up to a 35W). If you're up for a splurge, this Gucci graphic t-shirt couldn't be cooler!
