A striped shirt is a closet essential for women! Do you own one?

Let’s talk about the best striped shirt for women. Do you own one?

I’m a bit of a striped shirt collector. They’re my favorite style of shirt, and I have to confess that if I see a striped tee in a store, I have to pick it up. I don’t always buy it, but often I do. I have owned so many striped shirts over the years, it’s almost embarrassing.

But a good striped tee is so versatile, and today I want to share a bunch of different ways to wear them, along with a few good shopping options if you’re in the market for a new one.

These are my 5 essential striped tees in my closet: 

Short sleeve

  • Great in the summer with jeans, shorts, leggings, or other pants, and tucked into skirts. Also great for knotting at your waist in the summer. I just got THIS ONE, and THIS ONE has been a long time favorite.

Long sleeve

  • Perfect for winter under jackets and coats with any style of pants, or tucked into skirts. THIS OVERSIZED ONE is great for casual looks.

Turtleneck

  • I love wearing a STRIPED TURTLENECK in the fall under a jacket or tucked into a skirt. Also great for layering.

Dressier

  • Most of the tees I own are very casual and easy to dress down. I like having one thicker, nicer striped shirt, like
  • THIS ONE FROM BODEN, that you can really dress up.

Fitted long sleeve for layering

  • I bought THIS LONG SLEEVE TEE last year and it’s super stretchy, super long, and great for layering under sweaters or tunics for a peek of stripes.

Here are 12 ideas for wearing your striped shirts

1. Blue jeans and a baseball cap

  • This is a really simple summer outfit. Blue jeans, a short sleeve tee, and a pair of slides. You could also do a pair of sandals, of course!

2. White jeans and a striped shirt

  • White jeans are so perfect for the summer. Pair them with a striped tee for a crisp look! And if your tee is long, knot it at your waist. You could also fully tuck or half tuck your shirt.

3. Tie a striped shirt around your waist

  • This is one of my favorite summer looks. It’s an easy way to add a print to an otherwise basic outfit! Just double knot your long sleeve tee around your waist. This would look really cute with white sneakers or sandals too!

4. Pair your striped tee with leggings and a cardigan

  • Perfect look for traveling or lounging at home — toss on your striped tee with a pair of black leggings and a cozy cardigan.

5. A striped tee and denim shorts make a good summer combo

  • During the summer, when shorts and a tee are all you want to wear, make that outfit a little more interesting with a striped shirt.

6. A striped tee looks great tucked into a midi skirt.

  • This is one of my go-to looks in the summer. Swap out the long sleeve for a short sleeve tee! And make sure you choose a striped shirt that’s not too oversized — a little more fitted is always better for tucking.

7. Layer your striped shirt under a sweater

  • I love layering tees, and a striped tee peeking out from underneath a sweater is a great way to add some interest to an outfit.

8. Add a bandana to your look

  • Accessories are always fun to add to a simple outfit. Add a bandana scarf around your hair or your neck when you wear your striped shirt!

9. Wear your striped shirt with joggers

  • A striped shirt is a great option for layering under a denim jacket. For a casual look, add jogger pants! But you could swap these joggers out for black jeans for a dressier look.

10. Wear a striped shirt under a vest

  • I’m wearing a long sweater vest here, but it could look really cute under an olive vest or a denim vest!

11. Layer a striped shirt under a dress

  • this is one of my favorite looks. You can do it in the fall with a turtleneck like this, or during the summer with a tank dress and a short sleeve shirt.

12. Layer a turtleneck under a jacket

  • This is an easy fall outfit. But you can do this with any striped shirt and any jacket!

    I’ll be having my second baby this September, and I was wondering if you could post or share some easy- cute but comfortable early post-partum looks. I’m thinking long cardigans, joggers, etc… last time I had a baby I nailed the comfort aspect, but i’d love to have some insight about how to be comfy and still look somewhat put together. thanks!

  4. Nice styles of wearing striped shirts,like your styles and my Celebrity Jackets too.
