10 ways to remix a grey-striped tee

I got this grey-striped tee back in June 2014, and I’ve worn it many times on the blog (and many more times in real life!). I love this style of t-shirt from J.Crew, with its boatneck top, slouchier fit, and notched sides. Here is an almost-exact version of this grey-striped tee from J.Crew (in ‘heather graphite ivory’). I also have this same style shirt in light pink stripes, as seen here, and a similar, long-sleeved version in red stripes from J.Crew Factory, as seen here.

Here are 10 different ways I’ve remixed this grey-striped tee. It’s interesting to note how I overwhelmingly favor wearing this tee with pants (it must be the comfort of wearing this tee untucked), so the couple of times I’ve worn it with skirts stand out to me. I also love pairing grey + olive together, but I’ve also paired this grey-striped tee with navy, black, red, pink, orange, denim, and leopard print. I also love to combine this striped tee with other patterns, including floral and geometric prints.

    You’ve certainly worn it in some cool ways! It’s funny how many people DO NOT remix their clothes- they always wear them the same way! One of my work colleagues was talking about my dress yesterday and she said, “You never wear the same thing twice!” to which I said, “I’ve worn this dress about 3 times since September,” and I said I’d worn it with different pieces- e.g. a black or blue shirt underneath, a cardie on the top, with blue tights, with grey tights blah blah and she said, “Ooh, I always wear my clothes with the same things,” and I was thinking, “Hmmm, how boring!”

      Yes, I’ve gotten that comment before, from others who say they always pair the same items of clothing together. I’ve also gotten follow-up comments from colleagues and friends who have told me my own fearless remixing (and pattern-mixing!) have inspired them to branch out in remixing their own clothes in different ways. That always makes me feel good!

      Of course, I have my own favorite combinations (like this grey-striped tee with my olive ankle pants, for one!), but I definitely like to mix it up. That’s the whole fun of fashion! I am glad we are kindred spirits in that regard, Kezzie. 🙂

    I am literally standing at my kitchen island, writing this comment on my laptop, while wearing this exact same top. I currently have mine layered over a long white tank top with black leggings. I wore it out and about to run errands today with a black leather jacket and my silver Sperry’s 🙂 I think tomorrow, though, I might pair it with my black blazer, dark jeans, and maybe my red flats instead of a red purse 🙂

    I like mixing and matching clothes around too – I never understood what some people are afraid of, it’s only clothes after all, and if an outfit doesn’t come out looking the way you thought it would, you can always just change it around again! 🙂
