12 Ways to Wear A Striped Tee

12 ways to wear a striped tee

A striped tee is my go-to top, and there are so many ways to wear one! I’ve put together twelve outfits with different striped tshirts to help get your outfit juices flowing.

Confession: 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 tshirts 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!

13 outfit with a striped tee

This is a perfect Momiform outfit, or a good one for the weekends.

Half tuck your STRIPED TEE into your BLUE JEANS (that always makes your legs look longer!), add a cute PAIR OF SLIDES, and a TOTE BAG.

I love the contrast of a DARK STRIPE TEE and clean WHITE DENIM. Perfect for summer, or easy to toss a denim or leather jacket over the top in the spring or fall.

I added some cute LEOPARD MULES for a fun print, and a TOTE BAG. A smaller bag is definitely more appropriate if you’re going out in the evening!

I love tying shirts around my waist, and a LONG SLEEVE STRIPED TEE is the perfect top to use. It adds a fun pop of pattern around a SIMPLE BLACK DRESS.

You could make this look more casual by wearing a PAIR OF SNEAKERS, but I chose to make it a little less casual with some cute STUDDED FLATS.

I love this look for airplane flights, road trips, or just lounging at home. This BAREFOOT DREAMS CARDIGAN is basically as soft as a cloud. Literally the softest thing I’ve ever touched in my life!!

I paired it with a SHORT SLEEVE STRIPED TEE and my ZELLA LEGGINGS that are so stretchy and flattering.

I absolutely love the combo of stripes and olive green, and this makes a really good summer look. I paired my OLIVE GREEN PANTS with a DARK STRIPED TEE, tucking it in to make the outfit feel more polished and my legs look longer, and then wore these cute STUDDED FLATS to complete the look.

My pants are old (the brand is Pistola and I got them in a Stitch Fix box last year), but I found a similar pair HERE and HERE.

I love a really casual, chic look, and I think this one nails it. Perfect for date night, girls night, or just on a day when you want to feel a little more polished.

I started with this more fitted LONG SLEEVE STRIPE SHIRT (it’s great quality and so soft), tucked it into my BLACK JEANS, and finished the look with a pair of CUTOUT ANKLE BOOTS and a STUDDED CROSSBODY BAG.


add a neck scarf to your striped tee outfit for a pop of color!

I’m a sucker for the bandana trend. I love it in my hair, on my purses, around my neck – it just adds a fun pop of color!

This LONG SLEEVE STRIPED TEE has a low enough neckline that a BANDANA around my neck is flattering. To keep the outfit casual, I wore some BUSTED KNEE JEANS, and then a polished pair of CUTOUT ANKLE BOOTS.

You guys know I love JOGGERS, and these ones are perfect for a casual Momiform. I paired them with a DARK STRIPED TEE, a DENIM JACKET, a TOTE BAG, and some CONVERSE SNEAKERS!

Done and done.

I love a monochromatic look, and this DARK STRIPED TEE with BLACK JEANS is just a notch above an all black look.

To keep it neutral, but fun, I added some RUST COLORED FLATS and the COGNAC TOTE BAG. Perfect neutral look!


outfit inspiration for a striped tee

I had to add an outfit with a skirt, so I chose this SUEDE BUTTON DOWN SKIRT that I made last year and paired it with a DARK STRIPED TEE.

I’m new to the SOCK BOOTIE trend, and when I saw these ones on sale I had to try them. How do we feel about them??

    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.
