Can you wear a graphic t shirt with a suit? The answer is yes. Although both items  don't allow for a joint effort traditionally, the summer season allows for the eccentricity, and the cheekiness of it all. Therefore, I urge you to give it a try. Suits often look great with almost anything even graphic t shirts. It all depends on how you're wearing it, and what the focus of the outfit is. 

Illustrated in the photographs above is one way to pair a graphic t shirt with your suit. When you're working with a graphic t shirt, an easy way to style it is to keep the rest of the ensemble more simplistic. In this particular scenario, that means wearing a full suit that compliments the shirt instead of overwhelming or distracting from its detail. 

Going tonal is a smart styling decision because you want to keep surrounding colors in line with what's going on with the color scheme of the shirt. Anything else in regards to going outside of one or two color scopes make a bit more of a statement and can read as distracting.

Here's a piece of advice for when you're piecing outfits together: Allowing the detail piece to shine which in this case is the white graphic t shirt is key.
