Striped Tees + Printed Shorts

This month's Old Navy post is featuring shorts & tees - but instead of pairing these basics together, I decided to show you different ways to wear each of these patterned pieces separately.  Their printed shorts in this 5" cut are the perfect length and so easily can be dressed up or down.  Admittedly, I already own an impressive selection of striped tops, but these t-shirts are so affordable, ideal for layering & with just the right amount of stretch...I couldn't resist stocking up on a few more.  I'd love to hear in the comments below which look is your favorite and how you like to change up versatile pieces like these for summer!

What I'm wearing:
GapKids top (similar here or here), Forever 21 blazer (similar here or here), c/o Old Navy Printed Twill Shorts (on sale!), c/o JustFab Anais Heels, ASOS clutch (in blue here or in black here), Zara ring (similar), A.V. Max Cuff c/o Lemon Stripes

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy Vintage V-Neck Tee (only $6!), TinselTown Denim Couture jacket (similar here or here), Laundry by Shelli Segal skirt (similar here or here), ALDO sandals (similar), Olivia Burton watch (similar), Pulicati tote (similar), Bracelets: Vintage, c/o Chloe + Isabel & Forever 21 (similar)

What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy Perfect Crew-Neck Tee (only $6!), Banana Republic skirt (similar here or here), Ralph Lauren pumps (similar here or here), Zara bag (similar), Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: Vintage & c/o Stella & Dot, Lips: Maybelline Are You Red-dy

I love the "shopping" look. The maxi skirt could go fancy very easily but the striped tee and jacket dress it down.

Berty Morales said...

Love every single look, but my two favorite ones are: Work Look, and HH look. They are more of my style, and I can see myself wearing something like that.

All four looks are stunning! You sure know how to rock prints and colors, lovely pieces from ON!
