How to Rock a Graphic Tee: Styling by Amy Kulp

Everyone has that graphic tee somewhere in their closet that they just can’t get rid of. Maybe it even says, “Felicia Murray Designs” on it…!

There are so many ways to wear a t-shirt for any occasion, and my friend and fellow fashionista, Amy Kulp wrote an article for Her Campus all about it with the Felicia Murray Logo Tees. Read it here!

Here are some photos from the shoot:

I also had the chance to ask Amy all about her journey as a personal stylist.

What do you love most about fashion styling?

“For me, I love styling because it’s so personal. You get to help people discover who they are and learn more about them in the process. I love that styling is very purposeful. Whether it’s for a person, a look book, a show, or a store, it’s all to get a message across. Fashion tells a story, and styling helps to make that message come to life.”

What inspires you the most in the fashion world?

“As you can guess, I love Fashion that has a purpose. In the past, I’ve styled for fashion shows that benefit breast cancer, and it’s such an amazing experience getting to see the strength of the women who have gone through that and how they can strut down the runway and have such confidence. I also really love that fashion is so diverse. You can tell so much about a person by how they dress, and it’s fun for me to try to go out of my personal aesthetic and try things I normally wouldn’t go for.”

What is something unique that you apply to your styling that others don’t?

“Something different that I apply to my styling is that I try to make a statement. I recently finished up a personal project of mine where I went out of my comfort zone and did a 180 from what I tend to do. I love trying new things and exploring the different variations that fashion has to offer. Fashion is vulnerability. It’s getting to see someone for who they are. “

When did you know that you wanted to become a fashion stylist?

“About 4 years ago, I worked as a student stylist for my high school’s fashion show. I honestly went into it thinking it could be a fun hobby/something to do. I was dead set on going into Musical Theatre, yet as I worked on that project, I started realizing how much I fit in to the environment. It all came so easily to me, and it was something I hadn’t felt before with anything else I’d done. Since then, I’ve been an assistant stylist for 2 shows and styled my own show this past October. I’m continually working on my craft in my own time, but I’m forever grateful for that very first show. God gave me such an amazing opportunity then, and I’m so glad I took it.”

Fashion styling is a whole other side to fashion that takes a lot of creativity and an eye for style. Amy definitely is on the track to success! Be sure to support her by:
