There is nothing like an easy, breezy and totally versatile t-shirt on a summer day, but plain and graphic t-shirts aren’t the only game in town! An easy way to breathe new life into your summer wardrobe repertoire is to add in a patterned tee.
There is something about a patterned tee that feels a bit more “grown-up” than it’s little sister the graphic tee. Patterned tees have all the style of a blouse but all the ease of a t-shirt. Perfect for upping the chic factor of a casual look or a great companion to an office look when worn with some high-waisted paper-bag style trousers.
When shopping for one make sure to keep it chic and sophisticated. Stay away from prints that look like anything you would find on a playground.
Florals, botanicals and scarf patterns are the world you want to be sitting in when it comes to this trend.
I look for colors that will easily combine with other pieces I already have in my wardrobe and that have a luxe feel to them- of course anything with a retro vibe is always a good idea.
I snagged this patterned tee for $4 at TJ Maxx last week. The print reminded me of a classic Hermes scarf and the color palette works with just about everything in my closet.
It’s an effortless and pocket friendly way to change things up!
