Graphic T-Shirts seem to be the new ‘it’ trend. They can be worn with Jeans, Skirts or Shorts. Our most-liked style is the one with the Mom Jean Shorts. The outfit can provide an edgier look and can be finished off with boots and dark Gothic Makeup. A Graphic T-Shirt is a great way to make a style statement while staying in, both, budget and comfort.

↓ 19. Tucked in Shirt
A lot of people find tucking in shirts awkward, however, some simple tricks can help you avoid that feeling. A great way to transform your everyday look is to pair a high-rise Denim Short with a tucked in shirt. Define your waist by tucking it in from the front, while leaving it out at the back. While the other way is to go for a full tuck-in with an oversized shirt to create a fun look.
If we had to pick an outfit to wear for the rest of our lives, this would be it. The folded sleeves with the tucked in look is like a cherry on top. This minimal look can be easy to achieve for a day out with friends or a simple coffee run.
↓ 18. Vest/Blazers
The trickiest part of any outfit is to put together items that do not usually go together. Vests and Blazers are typically imagined with Dress Pants, however, it looks equally good when styled with Mom Shorts. Despite sounding a bit bizarre, the outfit has become a go-to for a lot of women. The trick is to find a casual blazer to go with smart-looking shorts. Matched it with closed shoes, the look is sure to give you a very professional vibe.
Note how the White T-Shirt acts as a neutralizing color between the same colored Blazer and Shorts.
↓ 17. Street Style Mom Shorts With Belt
People often fear pairing shorts with something as basic as a belt. Keep in mind, the belt should not be used to keep the shorts in place, but rather, to add in a fashion element. High-rise denim shorts paired with buckled belts have been trending for quite some time now. They also happen to be a favorite of the Super-Model, Kendall Jenner, who has been spotted in quite a few of them on her casual runs.
↓ 16. Oversized Shirt
An oversized shirt can be very tricky to style. It can turn out to be a complete disaster if not done appropriately. On the other hand, someone who knows the trick to style one can become a style inspiration for many. It can easily be worn over a tank top to let the oversized shirt hang loosely from one shoulder. Another way is to tie the front up like a knot to create something like a crop top. Additionally, it could be worn on it own for a casual and comfortable look.
↓ 15. Tank Top
Our most preferred beach look involves wearing a tank top over faded or distressed denim shorts. It reflects the true summer vibe and offers both style and comfort in one.

↓ 13. Dungaree
Wearing full-length Dungarees become inconvenient, especially when one has to use the loo. Summers call for comfortable, lightweight outfits to allow the legs to get a breather.

A basic white or black Tee, oversized shirt or stripes can all work together to create an uber chic look.

Stripes can be used to create outfits that are suitable for every season since they never seem to go out of fashion. A bright colored top could seem like a good idea for the Spring Season while an earthy tone could be great for Fall.
