OK I lied. The stripe series will now be in four parts… as I started planning the striped tops category, there was just too much to cover! Be sure to check out part one on skirts and part two on blazers.
Featured in part three is the beloved striped tee
Striped tees are hands the most popular of striped fashion pieces, possibly in your entire wardrobe. It’s quite a simple piece, but can work any outfit. This versatile item is classic but can be made trendy no matter what you’re wearing.
What I love more about striped tees, or any tee for that matter is that you can tailor it to suit your style and body shape. Through;
– sleeves: cap sleeve, short sleeve, ¾ length, sleeveless
– neck style: crew, v-neck, scoop
– and fit: cropped, boxy, boyfriend, fitted
The inspiration behind this striped tee lookbook was trendy work wear. Each working environment is different, but this is something I would wear to my office job as an inner city marketer.
My personal favourite striped tee would be crew neck in either a relaxed or fitted shape. I’ve chosen a fitted tee tucked into a pair of wide leg trousers for this trendy workwear look. What really brought this look together was a pair mid height heels with a strong point and heavy buckle details. If you’re not a fan of looking overly corporate, shoes can help shape your outfit away from this.
