Stripes are a summer classic that have been around for as long as any of us can remember. I’m sure you have a few striped tops hanging in your closet. So why would you buy another this summer?
I asked myself that same question until I happened to come across this cheerful striped tee.
This darling top is from Lou and Grey, a new brand I have just discovered. The vibrant colors and energetic feel of the tee jumped out at me and screamed Summer Fun!
There are so many things about this stripe tee that make it modern and different. First of all, the exciting combination of colors!
You’ve got a white, pale pink, mango, and this stunning orangey-red color. These are all the colors that Pantone predicted would be popular this season. This stunning mix reminds me of a gorgeous sunrise! These colors give me energy.
Did you notice the back of the tee? There’s a chic side slit, and a high low hem, meaning the tee is shorter in the front and longer in the back. It’s a beautiful detail.
Another thing that is a bit different about this tee is that it has drop shoulders and a roomy silhouette which gives the top a relaxed, flowy, effortless look.
I like wearing white jeans with this top because it makes the top pop. My jeans are straight leg. Wearing straight leg or skinny jeans is important to looking good in this top because when you wear a more boxy top your pants need to taper in to balance out your body. If you wear a wide top with a wide bottom, it looks like your body is a block. You will end up looking like a big rectangle with no waist and no shape.
I also like cropped jeans with this top because they play up that beachy summer vibe. This time, I’ve gone for frayed cropped jeans, but the fray is pretty minimal. That’s just me. I like things on the elegant side. The slides are Michael Kors. I always fall for that metallic logo detail. It’s so rich.
My bag is also by Michael Kors. I’ve had it for a few years, and it matched this tee perfectly! It goes to show you that when you buy a classic, quality bag, you can enjoy it for a long time and it will always look modern and fresh.
There’s my cute summer look. When it’s a modern tee like this, you can never have enough summer stripe tops!
