Fashion Don’t: Cheesy Graphic Sweatshirts

Okay, so recently I have been seeing lots of people walking around with these ugly graphic sweatshirts that you shouldn’t be caught in public wearing. I’m not talking about the ones that say love with a heart, I’m talking about the ones that have a pumpkin on it or even a star. 

These are tacky and ugly people. I know some people don’ t like to dress up when they go out in public and that is perfectly fine. I don’t care if I see someone who is wearing sweat pants in public because whatever they just want to be comfy, but when you have this huge cartoon picture on your chest, that is where I draw the line. These sweatshirts are starting to pop up everywhere in stores. People are starting to buy more and more of these because the stores sell them for cheap. NEWS FLASH PEOPLE! They are cheap because they are ugly and they don’t think people will  buy them so they put them at a lower price. 

Yes I know that everyone has the right to wear whatever they want and I respect that. I am just giving you all some advice on what actually looks presentable and what needs to be burned at a bonfire. The tacky sweatshirts are great for parties and events that you’re supposed to wear ugly shirts. For example during Christmas time lots of people have ugly sweater parties. Once again they are supposed to be ugly and that’s why everyone wears them. It is not Christmas season all year long, so you don’t have to wear the sweater or sweatshirt all year long. And plus, why would you want to wear it more than once anyway? 

If you love the cheesy graphic sweatshirt trend and that’s all you own in your closet than go right ahead and strut it out in public but keep in mind that you may look a little strange. If you want to keep wearing them maybe try and find something that is a little less toned down. There are some graphic sweatshirts that are acceptable. For example, Forever21 has lots of graphic sweatshirts that are cute and affordable, but make sure you are on the lookout because sometimes they get a little crazy.


Be safe out there and make sure you stay away from anything that is a sweatshirt and that has big, large cartoon figures or letters on them!



Best Online Shops

Forever 21

Forever 21 online is so much different from their stores in malls. You can view everything and not be limited to certain things that the store near you has. Everything is organized by the item, as well as new arrivals and style deals. If you are looking for somewhere that has cute but affordable clothes than I suggest you check out Forever 21!


If you like Forever 21 but you want higher quality products, then Tobi is a great website for you to try. Many of Tobi’s products are edgy and sophisticated. Everyday they have new arrivals that are 30% off. With greater quality clothing items comes a higher price but they are totally worth it! PLUS: when you join you get 50% off your first order!

Nasty Gal

Nasty Gal is a similar store to Tobi and Forever 21. The prices are more expensive but it is also better quality. If you want something that is more edgy or daring than you should definitely check their website out. They have everything from clothes to accessories. The website also comes with look books to see how to style the different items on their website.

Urban Outfitters

If you’re the type of person that wants to stand out or not be so “mainstream” than Urban Outfitters is the place for you. Their clothes are great for people who want to trend set. Even though their clothes can be a little pricey, they are worth it. The best thing about Urban Outfitters is that they always have sales. What makes the online store even better than the actually store, is that they have deals that are sometimes not offered in stores! Not only does the online store have clothing items they also have things that you can have in your home.


The Etsy website is something out of the ordinary and great for people who like creating and selling things. The whole idea around this website is that people create items and then sell them for a certain price in their own shops that they create on Etsy. This website has everything from phone cases to toe rings. If it is something that we have in the world than it will be on there. The unique thing about this website though, is how everything is created and designed by someone. You will have to message the seller with the information that you want for your item your purchasing but that’s as easy as 1,2,3!

Brandy Melville

Brandy Melville has very simple and edgy clothes. Everything that Brandy has is casual and comfortable. The give you the look of casual chic and you can wear most of their items year-round. One thing you should keep in mind for this brand is that, most of their stuff is just one size and doesn’t come in multiple sizes. Make sure you keep this in mind when you are ordering online because some things may fit differently on you than it would on the model that is shown on the website wearing the item.
