I Practically Live in This Striped Shirt—5 Outfits I Can Always Rely On


Summer is the perfect time to add some colour to your wardrobe but if you ordinarily stick to neutral palettes or perhaps your main source of outfits comes in the form of dresses and you’re looking to expand upon that option, I have just the solution for you: a bright striped shirt. 

In my opinion, you just can’t go wrong with stripes—they really do go with everything—and this joy-inducing yellow shirt featuring the motif is a classic piece that will stay in your wardrobe year after year. I’ve been wearing mine nonstop for weeks now, so I thought I’d show you some of my favourite looks that I’ve discovered along the way. Here’s how to style a striped shirt for summer and beyond. 

Style Notes: A huge trend again this summer is the crochet co-ord. Choose a cream or black set and these will work as versatile pieces you can mix and match with denim, linens and more… including stripes! Texture is a great way to create interest within your outfit and you can dress these up or down.

Style Notes: Summer is the ideal time to experiment and have a bit more fun with print and pattern. As far as I’m concerned, stripes are a neutral, so I love to clash them with printed dresses, anchoring my look with a complimentary colour palette.

Style Notes: In my opinion, white jeans are perfect for summer; they really elevate an outfit and brings a freshness that’s so nice for warmer weather. These are slightly flared, too, which are on-trend and create a lovely silhouette and shape on the leg. I’ve paired them with a little pop of colour and these gorgeous lilac sandals.

Style Notes: Nothing screams summer more than a pair of denim shorts and I’m into this Levi’s pair; they’re cut slightly longer and wider at the bottom and feel super chic and comfortable to wear. Add colourful accessories (I especially love ice cream shades at this time of year) to complete the look.

Style Notes: Layering is a must in the UK with our unpredictable weather, so I love to use shirts as outerwear and layer them over simple white dresses such as this pre-loved midi to bring a bit of interest to my outfit. Tied in a knot at the front or worn in the same way you’d style a knit around your shoulders, this is a quick way to change-up a look.

If in doubt, tortoiseshell sunglasses always look sleek.
