In most cases, knowing what you like and what you’ll wear is great. But when it comes to finding a replacement for something, it can make things REALLY hard. I’ve been searching for a replacement for my favorite striped sweater for over a year now, and I still haven’t found one I love.
But when I saw this striped tee with leather sleeves on major sale, I knew I would wear it just as much, plus, it can be layered to look similar to outfits I’d worn in the past with my sweater.
T always says the most ridiculous things while we’re shooting and I have to wade through tons of laughing photos, so I thought I’d share one with you today. :)
Right now, it’s still hot, so I’ve been pairing this top with skinnies and sandals. It was almost cool enough to swap in a pair of booties for this shot, and it’s making me itch for fall.
Here’s how I plan to make this piece work dressed up and down:
- Up: I could layer a cardigan or blazer over top, and add a pair of slim trousers or a skirt for work. A pencil or an A-line skirt would both look great.
- Down: sub in boyfriend jeans and ballet flats for errand running or a laid back date with Troy. Because the shirt has a bit of a rectangular shape, I would do a half tuck (just the front) when I pair it with boyfriend jeans to define my waist and look slimmer.
How do you dress a tee up and down?
