Striped Black & White Tee Has Feminine Touch

Do you have a striped t-shirt in your wardrobe??

I like to have one handy year round because stripes go with so many things. This is the latest striped tee I’ve bought and I’m really enjoying it! The reason? Let me explain…

First off, this is a super comfy tee. It’s soft, silky-smooth, and light with a touch of stretch. It feels great against my skin and that’s important because comfort is key for me!

Second, look at the style. It’s not your average striped t-shirt. I love the double-layered sheer hemline that is soft and flowy. It’s such a simple detail that makes this tee just a lit bit different and so feminine!

The scoop neckline on this top is so flattering. It elongates the neck in the way a simple crew neckline would not, and there’s even a bit of metallic ball and chain detail sewn in along the neckline that gives your face a touch of shimmer. Click here to zoom in and take a closer look.

Long sleeves are perfect for year-round wear, and I appreciate that side slit at the hip which makes this top easy to wear whether you go up or down five pounds.  This creamy ivory shade is also so much more flattering to the skin than stark white and so much richer looking too.

And do you see the fit through the sides? It’s not tight but it has shape, which is so important when you are buying a basic piece like this!

Of course, stripes are classic, appropriate and sporty, which means they give any outfit a youthful vibe. I’ve paired this tee with a gorgeous burgundy cardigan and black jeans which really make it pop, but it is the kind of top that can work with your regular blue jeans or even dress pants.

Cream with black stripes is a neutral print and would go with any color.

In fact, this top is so comfy and versatile, that I’m tempted to pick it up in another color too. It comes in 9 shades!  This is one wardrobe staple that will make your life easy and stylish.

  1. I love to see the inclusion of some items from White House Black Market – I have been thrilled with some of the things I’ve purchased there this past year (including the shirt pictured), and their stylists are always very helpful.

  2. Where or have you discussed horizontal stripes on more prominent women? Today’s outfit has a top with horizontal lines, and then there was the Daphe Horizontal Stripe Wool & Cashmere sweater, plus the striped blanket poncho. You’re friendly and trim, and everything looks “fabulous” on you! However, I avoid such stripes that make me look more expansive. Your comments on this, please.

    1. Hi Barbara,
      The finer the stripes are and the closer they are together the more slimming they are. Also, lines of low contrast (light blue on white) and high contrast ( black on white) are more slimming. On a large woman, also think about the length of the garment. The longer the garment, the more straightforward it is to wear as the stripes appear like a ladder as the eye moves up and down rather than side to side. I hope that helps! Cheers, Deborah
