“I have been shopping all my life and still have nothing to wear.” ~ Anonymous
It’s crazy, but its true. Some days I wake up stare at my closet and firmly decide I have nothing to wear. On those days I find relief and comfort in a trusty striped tee. Versatile in so many ways, a striped tee is an easy starting point to creating an effortlessly chic look. Being a lover of pattern play, I’ve come to find that when it comes to “playing well with other(s) (prints)”, stripes always win!
One very important thing to always keep in mind when mixing prints is to make sure your differing prints share similar color schemes. Now that we’ve laid out the ground rules to mixing patterns, here are a few ideas on how to style a STRIPED TEE:
1. Striped tee, boyfriend jeans, strappy heels and a scarf (solid or printed);
2. Striped tee, black skinny pants, pumps and a blazer (solid or printed, if you dare);
3. Striped tee, floral skirt, ankle booties and a solid color cardigan;
4. Striped tee, colorful skirt, Converse and chambray button down.
