If you constantly pick your brains trying to crack down the cool girl equation, well, let us tell you that we’ve finally found a holy grail piece. We’re calling it—nostalgic tees are a cool girl staple. It’s almost as if everyone came together and conspired to tout this t-shirt as the year’s closet must-have. We’ve been seeing this uniform throughout Instagram, usually styled with mom jeans, the laziest of culottes, or with a denim jacket insouciantly slung over the shoulder. Whatever your peg is—Wes Anderson-esque in pastels, '60s in orange hues, '90s angst—let these style stars show you how to do comfy nostalgic chic.
