How to Style Halloween Graphic Tees

Posted by Shopthemint Team on


 Fall has arrived. Here’s how to wear all those spook-tacular Halloween graphic tees.

Denim Is a Tee’s Best Friend

One of the cutest companions for Halloween shirts is denim jeans. Known for their timeless look, jeans also have a rustic appeal that pairs perfectly with fall fashions. Don’t be afraid to tuck in your tee and add a belt for a trendy look that’s casual and polished. Not a fan of the tucked-in style? Let the tee hang loose at your hips or wrap a plaid shacket around your waist for a super-comfy look.

Back to Basics

When it comes to Halloween outfit ideas, think basic. The fall holiday is known for color and fun, and the multiple graphic prints feature everything from jack o'lanterns to gourds. To avoid an ensemble that looks busy or overdone, pair your Halloween shirt with solid-colored pants or shorts. Black is ideal, as are jeans of any color. The same goes for the shoes. Stick with solid colors on the bottom and you can rock all the festive vibes on top. 

Go Goth

If you’re a bold spirit, a Halloween outfit is a great way to unleash your inner goth. This look is doable all year round, but late October is a prime time to try something different. Think about wearing a graphic tee with denim shorts over printed leggings. If you want to show more leg, try wearing an oversized graphic tee over fishnet leggings. This combo will give you a daring look that works great in early fall weather. 


The great thing about graphic tees is that you can decorate them with all of your favorite accessories. And what better time to play dress-up than Halloween? Try wearing big statement earrings: possibly jack o’lanterns or some similar theme. If you’re feeling daring, you can even wear a choker. Try adding a few festive button pins to your shoulder bag or wear one on the lapel of your plaid shacket (should you choose to layer on over your tee).

The Overall Look

When trying out graphic tees for Halloween, visions of hayrides and pumpkin patches come to mind. Be ready for all the fun and try wearing your tee underneath a pair of timeless denim overalls. If you want to show off the cute pattern, unfasten one of the buckle loops for an ultra-casual vibe Feeling extra festive? Put on a trendy wide-brimmed hat to complete the style. Canvas sneakers, flat sandals, or boots are a great complement to this look.

Try a Skirt 

If you want to add a little pizzazz, try wearing your graphic tee with a fun skirt. If the print on your tee is busy, go for a solid color bottom. Or, you might opt for a whimsical Halloween-themed printed skirt and matching bag for extra-festive flair. The graphic tee can be tucked in the skirt or (depending on length) tied off in a sexy side knot. 

Ready to Rock that Graphic Tee?

Try some of these ideas and have fun with your fall fashions. The refreshing thing about Halloween graphic tees is that they’re not too serious. All fashionistas know that styling clothes should be just as fun as shopping for them. At Halloween, it's time to push the boundaries of fashion even further. From denim and basics to skirts and fishnets, there’s no limit to where you can go with these styles.
