So lately I've found that while pontificating about some bit of ridiculousness, mid-post I uncover some issue I've been meaning to get around to, and today is no exception. So here is today’s pontification: while I do like the sentiment of sticking to your guns and wearing what you want regardless of what anyone says, I kind of have to eat my words: you CAN wind up with a fail of a graphic tee, of course, in which case it's a matter of whether or not you choose to let that bother you. If you've ever questioned whether or not that graphic tee you've got is classic and cute, or awkward and trashy, let me provide you with some measuring tools to help you out. Use this fool-proof method, and you can ensure your graphic tee will not lean heavily on the side of fail. Graphic tees have been around forever, seen on everyone from the Biebs to Britney to Beyonce and everyone in between. That's the thing about the classic, graphic tee: it's so timeless there's no chance of it going away, but it is possible to miss the mark. Let it be known, I don't claim to be the moral arbiter of graphic tee fashion- but, I can provide some basic common-sense rules that some seem to forget. Let this be a helpful reminder!

So, as long as you’re not raiding your stepson’s closet for Star Wars tees, using profanity in an attempt to ironically rationalize your “bad reputation,” or making weird allusions to an imaginary boyfriend, chances are you’re in the clear. That’s the method. Genius, right?
