Immaturity Chic: The Funny Tee

I have a dirty little secret. I like funny T-shirts.

I know, they are supposedly the height of bad taste...I remember reading the stern warning that Nina Garcia wrote about this in one of her books (which are excellent style guides, by the way).

Well, colour me vulgar if my funny tee collection renders me the enemy of chic, because I am amassing quite a collection, and yes, I actually wear them. Not every day, mind you, but when the mood strikes. I like that it lets the world know that I don't take myself too seriously.

I think there is a way to style a funny tee that can make it into something a sartorially-minded grown-up may actually want to wear. You just have to be a little bit clever with what you pair it with, and maybe use some well-placed layering.  Or maybe I'm just tacky. Either way.

Celebrate immaturity!


  1. Its cool and inspiring! Love Tee's like that as well. xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style

  2. you go on with your funny tees - I love them and I try to celebrate some immaturity every day. xo

  3. There's a way to do it and not look immature, and you've done it with the blazer and cool jeans.

  4. I'm with you--I just ordered the funniest t with a glasses-wearing rabbit on it, and that bad boy is going to see the streets of Paris!

  5. Love this! So glad to see someone else tastefully rocking the silly t-shirt! My grandmother likes to tell me that now that I am at "that" age I should dress more appropriately. Uh, no thanks, fashion is too much fun!

    I stumbled across your blog just this past weekend. I'm not certain how I got here, as it was a cold, rainy, lazy day and there was wine involved. I'm so glad I did! This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for, now that I'm "that" age (seriously, what does that even mean?!?)! I've gotten so many ideas already from some of your older posts, so thank you!

  6. I like the way you have styled your funny t-shirt! I wonder if there are many people in the UK who get the "more cowbell" reference?

  7. My personal motto: You can only be young once, but you can always be immature!
