Punky Chic: Do You Love Graphic Tees & Full Skirts?

Monday December 6, 2010 by Hafsa


In the midst of all this talk of glamorous holiday fashion, digressing for a moment to an edgier look feels timely.  Pairing a graphic tee with a skirt is nothing new (celebs have been wearing it high-waisted and mini for ages), but now we're liking the look with longer, fuller styles.

That was then...
Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, Agyness Deyn

This is now...
Rihanna, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker (on the set of Sex and the City 2)

We love the girly vibe these still-punk ensembles give.  If you're up for the challenge, try these styling options for inspiration:

dELiA’s Geometric L.A. Tee US$20, Asos Full Circle Draped Jersey Skirt US$76 (sale)
3.1 Phillip Lim Tee US$125, Forever 21 Longline Tulle Skirt US$26

no no no. I think the combination of the two just looks frumpy as all hell.

All the wardrobe for SATC was very "costume-y" so I didn't think this getup for SJP was wilder than others from the film.

Rhianna looks fantastic but I think if I saw a regular woman on the street wearing this I wouldn't like it quite so much...

wow i love this look!! looks that "go" is all good for work and what not, but sometimes isn't is awsome to just have fun with an outfit? I think SJP just has a lot of fun with whatever she's wearing, and honestly i love her in pretty much anything she wears. It's outrageous, but it's SO her, and it's SO cool! :-)

I wouldn't dare wear it, i wouldn't now how to wear it! but i wish i could...

I hope tu-tus don't get popular! SJP really does look ridiculous. I think Beyonce has put together the best looking one out of all of those, cute and subtle but still a edgy.

I'll be the odd Chick out and say I actually really like this look! Of course, it needs to be worn in the appropriate setting and among people who understand it's a purposeful fashion statement, not a random wardrobe choice.

I really love how beyonce put it together, and I think the "T-Skirt" ensemble looks better with a short skirt. I feel like long skirts should have a more elegant feel to it.

And I agree! SJP looks ridiculous in that outfit! It's like grad dress shopping gone wrong!

I think Rihanna looks cute, but I totally snorted out loud when SJP came onto the screen wearing that ridiculous ensemble in SATC. I thought it looked outrageous. But I love that kind of thing.
