Statement tees are, perhaps, one of the most sophisticated aspects of athleisure. Sure, they're casual and sporty and they look killer with a pair of slouchy jeans, but they look equally stellar with a silk midi skirt, high-waisted trousers, and more. Designers from Victoria Beckham to Chanel (and everyone in between) have committed themselves to supplementing their otherwise tailored and elegant runway collections from season to season with a graphic tee or two, which we can't wait to get our hands on. Whether you're a denim-cutoffs fan or looking for a way to dress down that cocktail-party look, consider a graphic tee. And, what's more, we've rounded up some of our current favorites ahead. Happy shopping!
