A simple, basic striped tee has been a classic fashion staple that can be easily spotted year after year. This season, it takes the center stage again. How to wear it with other trends, from leather to floral prints to white accessories, to give it an updated, fresh look? Take a hint from today’s featured outfits!
I like every detail of the first look (below). With the perfect blend of menswear chicness and understated sex appeal, baggy leather pants are even more popular than the skinny versions now. Pair them with soft striped tee, you easily get a care-free yet seductive silhouette.
Continue the chic color palette by adding white accessories (like the white pumps and tote showed below). A bold coat like this one not only brightens up the look and keeps us warm in chilly weather, but also adds a mesmerizing juxtaposition.
This outfit is definitely what I would wear for this spring. It’s great for many occasions: brunch, weekend get-together, or date night. Also a stylish option for the office if you work in a creative environment. The elastic band on the baggy pants even fits my five month pregnant body.

Nicole Warne has a unique ability to pull together a retro yet still modern-looking outfit. This look of her blends many spring trends together seamlessly: black and white stripes, floral prints and bright solid colors.
Mixing stripes with floral prints is not a new trick, but just like some other combinations that we never get tired of (leather with chiffon, denim with Jacquard, stripes with polka dots, and more… ) we just love to see the juxtaposition.
Besides the basic black pump, you can also choose blue or green one to bring out the breathing-taking print on this skirt (isn’t it pretty? I can’t stop looking at it!). If you are not ready to use bold colors on big pieces, like her bright coat, then this colorblock clutch is a perfect option. Add a black blazer and structured leather tote, you can definitely wear this outfit to the office.
