A striped t-shirt is a wardrobe essential. It's a great item to throw on with jeans for a casual day but equally so could be dressed up with a skirt and a pair of heels. You could pick one up at a second hand shop for an individual look or there are plenty of different styles available on the High Street.
A striped tee looks great with a pair of high waisted trousers or jeans for a sailor chic ensemble! The swing shape of this Warehouse top (£28) helps avoid the 'muffin top' faux-pas so you could wear it with skinny jeans or leggings.
If you want to make the look a little smarter then wear a blazer over it with a row of pearls. If money is no object then Stella McCartney's summer top (£485) is perfect for days at the seaside! Do your bit for charity with a Fashion Targets Breast Cancer tee at Warehouse (£20) as 30% of the cost goes to Breakthrough breast cancer. See below for more breton stripes!
