I love pieces I can wear over and over again yet wear differently each time and a striped tee is on the top of my list of such a clothing item. Dare I say next to jeans it is the most versatile item in my closet.
One thing that I really love about a striped tee is that it’s perfectly fine on its own - pair with jeans and go. It’s timeless, chic and has just enough to not be boring. Of course, pairing with some accessories is always fun and takes the look from safe to adding in some personal style.
While great on its own like a fine wine a striped tee also makes a great paring and can easily be turned into a layering piece under a cardigan or even take a short sleeve dress into fall and winter.
But if you really want to have fun with a stripe tee than print mixing is wear it’s at. I’m usually hesitant to mix prints but a striped tee is enough of a neutral base that it’s not too much competition. I’m personally a fan of keeping the stripe in a color that’s already in the print but you could really go wild and pick complimenting or even contrasting colors - that’s what personal style is all about, making it your own.
I hope my looks will make you think twice before passing on a “boring” striped tee and inspire you to do some style remix of your own!
