It could be just an LA thing, or a California thing, but graphic tees have been spotted on stylish hollywood mamas everywhere this spring. The key to pulling off the graphic tee trend without looking like we just rolled out of bed or are reliving our college days can be a little tricky—until now. Follow these four easy style tips and you'll be sporting your own version of the Melrose-worthy spring graphic tee trend this season!

Hats, Wayfarers, and Ankle Booties — Oh My!

Reese knows what's up—steering clear of flip-flops and zip up hoodies, and opting for a must-have spring fashion hat add the appropriate amount of class. Classic Wayfarer shades and buckle wrap ankle booties keep her J.Crew spring graphic tee look (featuring a nostalgic song title by Natalie Merchant) cool instead of college.

The Left Bank Is Always Right

For those of us mamas who live by our sneakers, take a page from the always stylish mom Jessica Alba—invest in a pair of high-top wedge fashion sneaks and a French saying Lovers + Friends spring graphic tee, and twist your hair into a perfectly messy bun.

When it comes to spring graphic tees, vintage band tees are forever cool. If you're a mama who gets that second wind from your latest Spotify Coachella playlist or Bastille Pandora channel, take a style cue from cool Hollywood mama Hilary Duff—your favorite vintage band tee, timeless Ray Ban Aviators, and rock 'n' roll red nail polish make the perfect spring graphic tee formula.

Moto Jackets Are a Tee's Best Friend:

The classic leather moto jacket is the coolest way to add a little edge to your favorite spring graphic tee. The ultimate cool mama look, Stacey Keibler's moto jacket outfit with Anine Bing's roomy statement tee, skinny black jeans, bordeaux hued hat, and delicate gold jewelry is what I aspire to on the daily.
