Big statement, minimal effort — that's what we usually hope to achieve when we get dressed in the morning. Sometimes that takes the form of a super-on-trend look, but more often, we end up in boyfriend jeans and a statement tee. After all, if there's one thing that never seems to go out of style, it's a quirky graphic T-shirt. It's no wonder people have been wearing them for decades — they're an effortless way to look cool without even trying (and make for a damn good Instagram photo, too).

So, for the days when putting together an outfit that's perfectly polished just isn't a priority, throw on one of these bad boys and let the shirt do the talking for you. And that doesn't mean you have to look sloppy either — a moto jacket and a bit of red lipstick can seal the deal. Click on for 15 tees that speak louder than words, from witty plays on words to a bit of français.
