Guide to Graphics

Now that I am back to my graphic brunette hair, I thought it would be appropriate to share some fun graphic elements that everyone should have in their lives. Plus it is the start of market week here at ZYDE and this look is perfect for any amount of market-themed shopping. 

Everyone should have certain go-to graphic pieces, and a great graphic tee collection as well. However, simplicity is still key even when creating a practical everyday graphic flare outfit. The three essential items to add to your soon-to-be-graphic look are: a graphic teefun leather adhesives and/or bag, and a Tattly temporary tattoo, of course!

Every brand and most designer nowadays have great graphic t-shirt lines. My personal favorite places to shop are Urban Outfitters, Givenchy, Dsquared2, Vans, etc. I also love snagging the tess of my favorite artists, musicians, and bands... the one I am wearing is my 'Bitch I'm Madonna' graphic tee from Madge's latest tour. It is crucial to find graphic tees that have great designs and can work on their own or as a layering piece.

Adding things to your bags, such as fashionable leather adhesives or stickers, is a great way to make any basic bag pop! Even though they can get a bit pricey, I believe that everyone should have at least one leather sticker from Anya Hindmarch stuck on one of their accessories. I took an old faux leather bag from Zara (shown above) and revamped it with the Anya Hindmarch Smiley leather sticker. My goal is to fill this bag up with a bunch of the stickers to create the ultimate graphic accessory.

And last but not least is the newest obsession of mine: a temporary tattoo by Tattly. I love them—and all of their tats are made my artists and designers. They add just the right amount of edgy flare while keeping your skin clear of permanent designs. These are great for people who can't decide on the perfect ink, or for sophisticated fun people who don't want to ink up their skin. I am sporting the Elmo Nostalgia tattoo from the Sesame Street Nostalgia Set.  You must check them out!
