11 Striped T-Shirts You Can Wear With Literally Anything

If it ain't broke...

If florals were made for spring, stripes were created for summer.

When I don’t have the energy to think of what to wear, I always rely on risk-free formulas. For summer dressing, a striped t-shirt paired with anything — denim shorts, mini skirts or just jeans —  is a no-brainer outfit for me. And it always looks chic!

But even beyond the season, striped tees prove to be a wise choice. We all have our own style staples, but I truly believe that everyone should have at least one striped shirt in their wardrobe.

I know, I know – it’s nothing you haven’t heard before, but I think it needs repeating.

And while the pattern doesn’t change, the style actually comes in different looks. Yes, striped t-shirts can be nautical, minimalist, maximalist, grunge or preppy. The colours and cuts make a big difference.

Black and white are a classic combination, but bright colours like pink and red are just as chic (if not a bit more fun).

In terms of what to wear them with, I’ve seen many clashing theirs with other prints and patterns. Tie-dye, florals, checkerboard — the classic pattern pairs well with all of these. In fact, you can see it as a neutral.

If this has convinced you to add a new shirt to your styling arsenal, I’ve found the best ones to pick up right now.
