On a recent thrift trip to Goodwill, I scored my new favorite graphic T-shirt. It’s a 2014 Country USA festival tee. If you’re local to the Fox Valley, you may recognize the large camping and concert event.

So, how did I end up finding this fun throwback? Well, I explored the men’s clothing section of my local Goodwill. It’s easy to get into a thrift shopping routine and stick to your regular racks. But it can be very worth exploring other sections. I like to check out the men’s section anytime I’m looking for flannels, oversized hoodies and graphic T-shirts.

In case you also score a band tee, vintage tee or graphic tee on your next thrift trip, I’ve created four looks that you can try.

Look 1: Cute and casual

For this look, I tied my T-shirt up in the front and put on a black denim skirt. I added a hat and earrings to accessorize. Depending on your style, you may ditch the hat or you could swap it for a baseball cap. For shoes, I went with my white tennies, but I can see this outfit looking great with short booties.

Look 2: Cool cinch

This look is all about structure. On top, I have my loose graphic T-shirt. On the bottom, I have my boxy black pants. In the middle, I have a bow belt that cinches my waist and literally ties the look together. To recreate this look, you’ll need a pair of high-waisted/wide-legged pants. Don’t forget a belt or a scarf to use as a belt.

Look 3: Night Out

This look is very similar to the first look since all you really need are two pieces to recreate it — your graphic t-shirt and a dress. I decided to tie my shirt in the front for this look as well. I also couldn’t resist adding a hat. For shoes, I put on black kitten heels.

Look 4: On the Go

Are you looking for something comfy to wear out and about? This look is for you! Simply pair your graphic T-shirt with biker shorts and tie a flannel around your waist. I threw on silver hoops, a cross-body purse and tennies to finish the look.

Who knew that a $4 graphic T-shirt could inspire so many outfits? Happy exploring on your next Goodwill thrifting adventure!
