In our last closet mashup, we showed you how the same pair of pants could create three totally different looks. This time we are going to show you how one basic striped tee (we chose this sequin Michael Kors top, but feel free to supplement your own favorite tee!) can take you from edgy chic to glammy sleek.
Striped T-shirts will never go out of style. They are simple, comfy and can be paired with just about anything. Polka dots, checks and stripes can actually be paired together! Don’t be afraid to play around with patterns.
But for those of you who prefer to stick to a simpler look, here are some fun ways to mix up your basic striped tee.
- For the edgy look… pair your top with cool black leather shorts, a leather skirt or funky leather pants. Add a neon belt to give your look some color, motorcycle boots and some chunky jewelry, and you’ll be ready to to hit the streets like a hipster.
- For the casual look… try going for a bold pair of colored skinny jeans (see why we love them here!) and flats. A funky tote bag adds some character to your outfit, and simple bracelets keep you looking casual but stylish.
- For the glamed up look… a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans with sky-high wedges is the way to go. Add some sparkly earrings and sleek sunglasses and you’ll be walking down the street with more attitude than you ever knew you had!
