Bridesmaid Fashion: Graphic Tees and Maxi Skirts! 3 Ways – Pleats, Polka Dots, and Sequins
I know the graphic tee and maxi skirt look isn’t at all new but have you funky brides considered the combination as bridal party attire? A gazillion bridesmaids have already donned Chucks, why not go all out with a full-on alternative / rock and roll ensemble, right? Styled and accessorized accordingly, the combo can look dressy, tasteful and even elegant enough for yes, such an important celebration. Here are a few inspiration boards I put together to help you re-imagine the skirt and tee look for your own wedding. (These looks are great for wedding guests too!)

For more casual celebrations — like a backyard barbecue perhaps? — a vintage tee with a cute print + a shorter skirt with a fun pattern like polka-dots is an adorable ensemble for your bridal party. For cooler months, just add a cardigan and choose thicker tights.
