How to Wear 1 Stylish Thrifted Striped Shirt You’ll Love
It’s the third quarter of 2016 and there are people still wondering how to style the basic pieces that they get from the thrift store. I know that it’s easy to look at a piece and just assume that you throw it with another basic piece, and boom! You have an outfit. However, I would much rather show you how to wear one stylish thrifted shirt multiple stylish and easy ways, than to describe how to wear something one easy way that you’re stuck with. In this post, I’m sharing the four different ways you can style a thrifted striped shirt that you love. My examples, show how to take the thrifted striped shirt and transfer it from work, to play, to a day out with your girls.
While you’re out shopping, checking out the simple thrifted t-shirts, blouses, and cotton tops that are fitting is an easy way to revamp and restyle some of your more detailed and intricate pieces that you have. Let’s say that you have a really dope leather skirt or a pair of printed pants that fit impeccably to your curves. Don’t overshadow that piece with an equally unique top, which may take the attention away from your pants/skirt. Try pairing that piece with something simple and thrifted, that alone is cute but when paired with your fly pants or that really great skirt, it really compliments and adds a creative flair to the entire outfit.
Because my weight fluctuates so much lately, especially after having a baby. Getting simple thrifted t-shirts, with limited detail makes it easy to keep some basics in rotation, without worrying about not being able to fit them anymore. Most of the thrifted shirts are stretchy, comfortable, and easy to style with practically anything. Investing in these thrifted options, make it easy to not spend a lot but still maintain a lot of options with your wardrobe. Thrifted shirts like this striped thrifted shirt in this post last long, cost little, and because of the black and white stripes, add interest to most of the bottoms I own.
When you select a simple striped shirt while thrifting, you’re eighty percent finished with an outfit that will slay. Is “slay-able” a word, because it definitely should be, right? I decided to pair the thrifted striped shirt with a pair of thrifted linen pants for a casual day running errands, yellow skinny jeans for a day with the girls, and a thrifted faux leather skirt for a more sophisticated night out. I also paired the striped shirt with a pair of cut-off jean shorts for a day hanging out with my boys. These were all really simple looks, that I feel were vamped up with a single striped t-shirt that I thrifted for less than $5.
