17 Graphic T-Shirts That Will Express Your Every Sentiment

Many people will argue that what you wear expresses how you feel on a day-to-day basis. But what if what you wear could also [literally] say exactly how you feel, so that you don’t have to say anything at all? Thus is the genius of graphic t-shirts.

The variety of graphic tees available today really facilitates the whole "silence is golden" thing. Whether you’d rather sleep than do work, get grumpy when you haven’t eaten in a while, or have a bad habit of constantly saying “hashtag” out loud, there’s a design for everyone. Because of their basic format (everyone loves t-shirts) and how relatable the graphics actually are (usually great conversation starters, too), graphic tees are effortlessly chic and funny. And even though they aren’t the classiest, most artistic pieces of clothing in our closets, they have an uncanny ability to dress down some of your favorite wardrobe items with some quirk and personality.

It’s almost impossible to escape graphic t-shirts these days. They are everywhere, all the time. An unsurprising fact when you consider that they can express our thoughts even more clearly than we may be able to ourselves (sometimes, anyway). So here are 17 graphic t-shirts that are guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.

Just Being Honest

There’s a reason why you’re consistently late to those tedious meetings and that (occasional yet) dreadful dentist visit: Because you simply just don’t want to be there. This tee sums up the sentiment pretty well.
