Whenever we get asked about graphic tees, it comes as no surprise that we immediately praise and reach for Anine Bing. This LA-based brand has quickly built a cult-like following for their trend-forward staple pieces, tinged with a grungy but minimalist rock and roll aesthetic. We often hype up the eponymous brands’ luxe silks and structured blazers, but it’s the unique graphics and oversize tees that are the tried and true pieces we find ourselves reaching for time and time again. We love everything about the latest iteration of her best selling tee-body, the Lili Eagle Tee in Washed Black. This vintage-inspired eagle graphic features tasteful fading elevated with bold typography, adding the perfect amount of edge. A boxy silhouette in the softest cotton makes for an irresistibly comfortable loose fit. Pair your super-soft tee with your favorite light wash denim - we love how the faded black looks with Moussy's Yardley Tapered in Light Blue. Our favorite Japanese denim brand is our go-to real vintage-esque treasure. These 100% cotton non-stretch jeans feature hand-distressed holes at the knees and fraying throughout the leg's length for an effortless finish. With a lower mid-rise of 8 ¾", let your graphic tee hang over the top of your jeans, or go with a quick french-tuck for a little bit of easy styling. These ankle-crop jeans are begging for a stylish sneaker, so we kept things classic with Golden Goose's new Mid Star in Suede Toe Spur Leather with White Silver Star. Finish things off with a bold aviator such as the Breton in Black + Black Interstellar 24k by KREWE with some matching gold jewels - we love the nostalgic finish we get with Marit Rae's chunky Monaco Chain.
Our next look is a proper tribute to the most well-known iteration of this pairing: The Blue Jean and White Tee. You can find a scoop neck white tee just about anywhere, so we wanted to put a little twist on things and highlight our favorite layerable version - AGOLDE's Rib Tank Bodysuit in White. This effortlessly sexy racerback style bodysuit is a timeless staple that everyone needs in their closet. Cut from the softest micro modal and luxe Supima cotton, this slinky rib flatters the body without riding up or digging uncomfortably like many other bodysuits. Layer this form-fitting one piece underneath a loose-fitting high rise jean for a comfortable and casual aesthetic. We love the boyfriendy silhouette of the Lomita Wide Straight in Blue by Moussy. This chic mega high-waisted distressed blue jean is the fashion "it" jean of the season with a semi-wide fit leg and exaggerated frayed hem. Size up in these jeans as this super pinch waist The full-length inseam is perfect for a kitten heel, but we love the muted warmth we get with St. Agni's Agnese Woven Flat in Nude. Keep things simple with some dainty gold jewels and an oversized pair of sunnies such as Illesteva's Los Feliz in Black.
