For the days where you hate everyone, cannot function because the barista did not make just right or are just flat out hungry, the worst thing anyone can say to you is “do you want to talk about it?” Because talking is exactly the opposite of what you want to do. You want to crawl into bed with Netflix, find someone who makes decent coffee or in most cases, eat. Unfortunately society has not created a way to translate our thoughts into words (yet), so most often we do have to explain this in some form of speech. And it’s painful. Truly, painful. Luckily the fashion gods have come up with a sort of temporary cure— graphic tees.
Yes, I know I have not stumbled upon a gold mine here. Graphic tees have existed for some time. Since the days of middle school that we pretend did not really happen as badly as we may remember them (fashionwise, too). But since those cringe-worthy days of spending your weekly allowance on the “Team Jacob or Team Edward” tee, the world of graphics has come a long, long, way. The fabrics have gone from tight and itchy to loose and comfortable. A size small is not literally for a small human and a large does not mean an average sized person will be swimming in their shirt. The makers of graphic tees have grasped on to the literal and have even expanded their designs.
Vogue, In Style, and Harpers Bazaar are all in on the graphic tee craze. Everything from flowy sweaters and cropped tees are seen in stores with cute logos that are spot on translations of the daily “feels.” Instead of simply throwing on the tee at the latest book signing or as the 20 minute late option to class, there are no endless ways to style the shirts. What was once a last option is becoming a first. Check out these 10 tops that are too accurate for words. No longer will you be stuck explaining to the “too happy” girl at the register that you are just not a people person today. Your shirt does all the work for you.
A cute play on the “gap” logo, don’t be fooled. This shirt means business. Too often than not, exhaustion gets the best of you and nobody. gets it. With a prominent logo like this, trust, your message will be heard and you will be in bed in no time.
“Messy hair don’t care”
Judgy eyes away ladies, the shirt told you what’s up. The hair’s up, the sweatpants are on, deal with it. When a message is difficult to receive there’s nothing like big bold letters in a hot pink print to get the point across.
There are few female badasses like hopeful presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Plaster her name on a tee and you have some business to get done. Nobody is messing with you today. Not with the H.R.C attitude.
“I don’t trip- I do random gravity checks”
We all have our fair share of klutz built into our DNA. The kid who just can’t seem to walk a block without bumping into someone probably got a little more than others. When you just can’t take any more pestering, a shirt with this clear message may clear up some looks. Or at least get a laugh.
“I’m not antisocial, I’m selectively human”
The day has come where you finally hate everyone. It happens to the best of us. You’re walking around campus and everyone suddenly looks atrocious. This shirt is calling your name.
“I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.”
The hunger mood swings.. yeah those can be bad. Blood sugar dips too low, you black out and things get ugly. After a couple though, apologies don’t quite work. Believe it or not, a shirt with fair warning is not the worst idea. At least potential victims have fair warning.
Simply put, this is your top model shirt. When you are feeling fierce and ready to take on the day no outfit can be better than one channeling your inner model. You’ll be doing a catwalk down the hallway.
“I donut care”
Food and indifference. When you’ve just about had it with the day, not caring at all what happens in the next moment, a donut is the only thing that sounds good. Put them together on a shirt and we have a winner.
“Drumsticks & Netflix”
And as you walk home completely indifferent about the state of the world, donut in hand, the only thoughts in your head are netflix and possibly more food. Unsurprisingly, the next two themes on the shirt.
Your “I’m up here” message. Wear this, and you can panic silently. Refreshing, isn’t it? No interruption by someone about how much they love your shoes, or an eager message about how they just need to know if you studied for the exam. Don’t you hear me? I’m NO. CHILL. Let me relax so I am chill.
“I hate pizza, could you imagine what that’s like?”
Unlike the other shirts that are more urgent messages, this is a simple “get to know me” shirt. Basically saying, I’m a foodie, I love food, if you don’t like food, we can’t be friends. Vegans, vegetarians, gluten free people, I think this is goodbye.
