Yes, it’s another striped tee, but can you really ever have enough? I featured a very similar look before not too long ago on the blog with a different striped shirt. Today I’m keeping it a little more simple. I love this striped boatneck tee from J.Crew. I own it in the black/ivory (pictured here) and the ivory/navy. You can’t go wrong with either, so why not have both? It’s also the perfect weight for summer. I was comfortable outside but warm enough in the air conditioned restaurant.
By the way, how gorgeous are the flowers in this photo?!
I have quite a few striped tops from J.Crew, all of which I love equally. The most recent addition to my striped tee collection is this patchwork one, which I love. I sized up in this one for a slouchier fit. It’s a slightly heavier fabric than the boatneck tee. I also have one of the Saint James unisex tees in navy and green, but I love all of the current colors as well.
I’d definitely recommend having at least two striped shirts in your closet. One that is ivory or white and navy, as well as an ivory or white and black. They are wardrobe essentials that you can use to build any outfit.
I’ve found that really no striped shirt is the same. The fabric, weight, and size of the stripes can all vary. All the more reason to have more than one. 🙂 Long story short, I don’t think there will ever be a striped tee I can say no to!
