Three Ways: Styling Your Striped Tee

Opinions are like striped tees. Everyone has one, but most of them stink. Isn’t that how the saying goes?!  But seriously, I have been the uninspired and lackadaisical owner of many striped tees in my 28 years. I’ve always been pretty lazy about styling my striped tee. Pair it with jeans and sneakers, and I’m out of the door! Striped tees can be tricky,  colors, width of stripe, neckline, and length, are all factors to consider when finding your go-to striped tee. Lucky for me, this 99 cent tee from Goodwill met all of my striped tee needs! Here are three easy and fun ways to style a striped tee!



Vest: Banana Republic via Goodwill (Similar Splurge // Save); Tee: Gap via Goodwill (Similar Here); Joggers: Gentle Fawn, old (Similar Here): Sneakers: Kate Spade (Similar Here); Hat: Goodwill (Similar Splurge // Save); Purse: Banana Republic, old (Similar Here).

Pairing a striped tee with joggers and a long vest gives a casual-cool vibe that is perfect for grabbing coffee in a hip coffee shop or running errands around town.

Blaze: Elizabeth and James via Goodwill (Similar Splurge // Save); Tee: Gap via Goodwill (Similar Here); Jeans: Banana Republic; Clutch: Goodwill (Similar Splurge // Save); Shoes: Zara, old (Similar Here).

For a more polished look, pair a striped tee with a black blazer. A blazer elevates the look and makes a tee appropriate for work days in a creative office or my personal favorite, Casual Friday! It easily transitions to Happy Hour with a statement clutch.

Knot a stripped tee over your favorite maxi skirt (or dress) for the perfect outfit for brunch with your girlfriends. Don’t be afraid to mix prints! This is the perfect way to put a spin on your favorite maxi dress, especially if you’re on vacation and packing space is limited.
