Today’s post is dedicated to a wardrobe classic and we are sharing four ways to wear striped tees for the summer. It’s always a challenge finding cute summer outfits that not only keep us cool and pulled together but looking effortless.
At $28, it’s a no brainer piece to add to your wardrobes. Stripes are a closet staple and this version has a feminine ruffle sleeve that adds a simple detail. Nicole and I are styling both colors so you get multiple ways to wear this affordable tee in one post!
Look 1 :: Dress Up Your Shorts
Our first look and easiest way to play up this basic tee is with a pair of colored shorts. Think of the stripe as a neutral and use as the backdrop to your favorite color. I chose blush pink to soften the black and white. Add a fun layered necklace (I love this one) and keep it casual with a flat sandal.
Look 2 :: Mix Your Prints
It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of mixing prints. It’s not scary, I promise. First you need to find a print you love and then make sure the print has the similar colors in it as your stripe. I love the print on this scarf. It pairs perfectly with black and white too! Throw it on with your favorite denim and you are ready to go!
Look 3 :: Add a Pop of Color
Our third way to wear this striped tee is with white denim. White jeans are here to stay and are the perfect blank canvas to pair with any top or tee. We’ve got the perfect pair left in a few sizes. Since this outfit is all neutral, pop in your favorite color with a red bag or earring.
Look 4 :: Tie it Up
Our last look is currently our favorite spin on a basic tee. The tie front trend is all over the place this summer and you can create the look with a regular tee. Pull it to the side and make a knot. Voila! You are ready to go! Pair it with a summer’s hottest trend, the round straw bag.
