Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good graphic tee. They not only are a great way to make a fashion statement, but they also create a message of who you are and what you believe without you saying a word. My obsession with graphic tees runs deep. I have quite a few, or so I've been told. Low key, I have already started building a stash for my little growing fashion icon. (Don't judge me!?!?!) Why not share these great designs with all my Besties?!?! So, I am stepping away from my usual Bestie hat, highlighting just a few of some awesome t-shirt designers I support and sport as I am deeming today TEES TUESDAY!

“She From Chicago” – The Chic Shirt Shop
As a Chicago girl, through and through, this shirt sums up all my Chicago and Black Girl Magic pride. Not only does The Chic Shirt Shop feature amazing styles that speak to women seeking to run the world, but the owner, Kelly, is truly one of the sweetest persons I’ve ever met. Be sure to check out all of her latest styles for the fall season, including this sure winner tee.
“Soul Mama” – Black Vibe Tribe
Stay it with your chest with a tee from Black Vibe Tribe. Focused on ‘spreading black vibes, one tee at a time’, they feature tees for guys, gals, and even the little ones. This tee, which is offered as a tee and as a crop top, speaks directly to the mama I wanna be!
“A Lil’ Bougie” – Tees in the Trap
Let’s admit it…we all are a lil’ bougie! Tees in the Trap is your one-stop-shop for tees, totes, buttons, and stickers too! From pop culture to potato salad, their brand speaks to black culture in clever and comical ways. Additionally, they feature various collaboration products with the likes of Luuvie and Very Smart Brothers. You can’t go wrong with a tee from Tees in the Trap.
“David Your Goliath” – Mattie James
Influencer and content creator, Mattie James sends such a powerful message with this tee. Conquering this impossible is as possible as you are willing to fight (preach Mattie!). On her site, you can find other awesome tees, merchandise, and various courses to help bloggers and entrepreneurs alike take their brand to the next level!
“Love Her” – DSE Detroit
This Detroit-based brand focuses on influences from everyday art, music, life and Detroit culture. The shirt featured here is apart of collection for both men and women. I love this message and reminder that love is the expectation.
“The Juice Project” – Enstrumental
Rep this classic fictional squad in this tee from Enstrumental. As a Chicago-based brand, Enstrumental offers everything from hip hop to history. There are so many note-worthy tees from Enstrumental, you are sure to see me sporting another…and another!
