The striped tee is one of my top closet essentials. I love that I can wear this classic topper all year long just by swapping my bottoms, shoes and accessories and layering up or down. I also love that despite changing trends, the striped tee always stands the test of time. In honor of this wardrobe wonder, today I'm sharing 5 easy striped shirt outfits that are perfect for August. The best part about these looks is that you can easily wear them into fall and winter with a few small tweaks.
1. THE UPDATED AUDREY HEPBURN
First up is one of my favorite combinations. A classic striped tee, simple black skirt and ballet flats work year-round, but the addition of a straw hat makes it perfect for August. What's even better, you can easily transition this look into fall by swapping the straw hat for a wool one and adding tights and/or ballet flats.
2. CASUAL FRIDAY
This next look is perfect for a casual office, casual Friday or polished weekend look. I love the mix of a casual tee and tailored pants paired with sneakers. The red lip and tousled hair make everything feel a little more special, and you could easily swap the sneakers for loafers, ballet flats or ankle boots to change it up.
3. FARMER'S MARKET CHIC
I love how easily a striped tee can be dressed up or down to suit your lifestyle and this look is a perfect example of that. The wide stripe and relaxed shorts make this a perfect weekend look. Paired with sandals or ballet flats this look can easily take you from brunch to a casual park stroll effortlessly.
4. RELAXED ELEGANCE
This next look is one that will never feel dated. The striped tee and black pants look polished and create the perfect base for any accessories or shoes. In this case, the denim jacket adds some warmth and interest while the ballet flats add a pop of color. The classic bag ties everything together.
5. OFFICE READY
Last but not least, if striped button downs are more your style this look is perfect for work or a dressier weekend event. I love the rich blue and white striped top and white pants with simple, matching accessories that keep things polished.
