Here's how we wear: The Stripey Tee

1: Katie from Tatty Boots. 2: Laura from Only Half Dressed. 3: Rebecca from Its Cohen. 4: Baby. In corner.

Friday's always come around super quick. Which is good for most of us, because ola weekendo! And also because it's a chance for new friendly faces on this blog! What more could we want in life. Oh a bank holiday too. Check.
So anywayz, with the weather (always back to the same story!) being hit and miss, and that awkward in between stage, where Autumn is creeping up on us, it seemed like the perfect time to dig out a popular item that everyone and their mothers have..
The stripey tee.

Katie says "I have a real thing for pairing navy and burgundy, so thought this stripe top and skirt worked pretty well together!"
Laura says "Stripes are my favourite, because they go with anything whether it's another plain garment or patterned - although mixing stripes is the best!"
Rebecca says "Whenever I wear stripes I like to think of myself as a classy parisian chick. Unfortunately, I still manage to walk into inanimate objects, but at least I feel chic when doing it."
I say "Funnily enough, stripes scare me. Like massively. I'm not sure why, but they do. So I played it safe over a dress. One step at a time. Thinking about it, it's not that funny.

How do you style your stripey tee? Is it a go to piece for you? Or are you like me, and a little afraid of them?  River Island have a great selection at the moment, perfect for this weather!

  5. Haha it's strange seeing me on here! Yes I'm liking all the top and skirt combo's, great minds think alike! I was the same, I thought stripes would be really unflattering so I stayed clear but they aren't at all! Plus the comfort is ace. I tell you what, if all our day jobs go down the drain we would make a great girl band! We could wear stripes (and sing about them of course).. forever... :P xx

  11. I always thought horizontal stripes would make me look really wide - but I fell in love with a black and white stripey tee and realised they don't at all! I love tucking mine into a high waisted skirt or jeans!

    Great post, you all look super lovely xo

  14. I love these looks! I'm afraid to say that the only striped top I own is one that I wear under things to keep me warm! Feel free to remove me from your blog now! I never know what to pair them with to not look boring and dull. I love Katie's look though and yours is great too! Everyone looks fab! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.co.uk

  15. Everyone looks so good, as always! I love stripes as long as the piece they are on isn't too close fitting, then I get a bit iffy xxx

  25. I have a stripey tee from toppers that I bought when I was about 15 (which I am most definitely not anymore...). Its starting to go a bit laddered and holey at the seams but still I insist on wearing it. Never has an item of clothing been so loved. Ever.
