These fresh graphic tees won’t make you look like a wannabe
If you’re having a lazy summer day, you might not want to wear a graphic band t-shirt because 1. you think people will criticize you for repping a band where you know maybe one song and 2. everyone is wearing graphic band t-shirts.
Not to mention, there was that whole Kylie-Kendall-Tupic fiasco. No one wants to give off that vibe.
Plus you don’t wanna wear a t-shirt that says “I Hate Mondays” or “Squad,” because let’s be honest, that would just make you seem pretty basic.
