Stripes for summer isn't groundbreaking by any means, but this classic print has stood the test of time for many reasons. For starters, you can pair stripes with just about anything, even other prints, & dressing in head to toe stripes of different scales will create a bold outfit for when you're feeling daring. To show you just how versatile one stripe t-shirt dress can be, I'm sharing 5 looks that all have one thing in common: this Forever 21 striped t-shirt dress! Keep reading for more styling tips and wardrobe hacks to maximize your closet!
1. SUEDE FOR SUMMER
All of your suede pieces don't have to go into storage the second warm weather comes back around. In fact, suede for summer is totally wearable especially if it's a skirt. The skirt is lined and the A-line shape gives you room to breathe so you won't feel over heated! Go ahead and try it, I know you want to!
2. PRINT MIXING WITH STRIPES
Stripe tees are so easy to mix with other prints, especially if the other print has the same colors in it's print as your striped tee. Case in point, this BB Dakota floral number and my trusty Forever 21 striped t-shirt dress. To tie the striped t-shirt dress, I used an elastic hair band because it was difficult to knot the fabric itself. This is an excellent wardrobe hack to keep in mind when you want to tie a shirt, but the fabric is too thick or there is just a lot of it!
3. STRIPES ON STRIPES
Adidas Originals are back, my friends and what better to pair them with than a striped tee! The black stripes on the sneakers mix perfectly with the stripes on the dress, and is only the beginning of the stripe on stripe ensembles you can create! If you're feeling bold, pair your stripe tee with a striped bottom that has wider lines, vertical stripes, or even a multi-colored motif. #gogirl!
4. ADD A DOSE OF CHIC WITH A BLAZER
Without the blazer, this outfit would be super casual but adding this one item amplifies your look and takes it to a whole other level of chic! It's still comfortable and perfect for the weekend, but keeps you from looking overly casual. If you want to add even more glam to your ensemble, go for a bold red lip because it always does the trick!
5. AN ALTERNATIVE TO AN ALL-WHITE ENSEMBLE
If you're worried about mixing whites, pairing a striped tee with white denim is the perfect baby step to take! It's a simple summer combo that works every time and all you need are great accessories to complete your look.
