Graphic Tees And Dress Pants Are The Formula That's Going Viral On TikTok

If you've been on TikTok recently, you may have seen the graphic tee and dress pant formula, which pairs graphic tees with — you guessed it — dress pants. We're used to seeing graphic tees paired with denim, but frankly, that look is old and tired. Styling a graphic tee with chic trousers is a much-needed upgrade. These t-shirts are cute, comfortable, and you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to find one. There are plenty of affordable options at places like Walmart and Target, so you don't have to limit yourself to choosing just one (the more, the merrier!).

Between band tees, cartoon characters, and classic ironic phrases, there is a graphic for every aesthetic. For more tailored fits, we suggest browsing the women's section, but if you want a looser, oversized tee, the men's department is a great place to look. To give you some style inspo, we've compiled a list of the best four graphic tee and dress pant combos.

Paper bag waist

Wearing pants with a paper bag waist is an easy way to cinch in your midsection, which helps to highlight your curves (even if you aren't a curvy girl to begin with). Choosing a cropped style as you see in the photo automatically makes your legs look longer, especially with an open-toed heel. Whether you decide on a bold or muted shade, this graphic tee and paper bag pant combo is sure to make a statement.

Wide leg pant

Wide-leg pants are seemingly everywhere these days, which makes total sense; they look amazing on every body type, plus they're really versatile. It's easy to style them for any occasion and they will take you a long way. Add a pair of heels for a night out, flats for the office, and sneakers for running errands.

Bold and bright

For anyone obsessed with color, this is the look for you. If you like more coordinated outfits, we suggest picking a color from the graphic tee and finding a matching pant. On the other hand, if you aren't super into structured looks, go rogue and find any color trouser that suits your style and makes you feel good.

Matching co-ord

The best thing about co-ords is you don't need to put much thought into styling them because it's already an assembled outfit. If you're looking to style your graphic tee while still maintaining appropriate workwear, we recommend a blazer and dress pant co-ord. Because the pieces coordinate with one another, the graphic tee is really going to stand out, as opposed to styling it with several colors or patterns.
