Pre-Fall 2011: Striped Tee


Polyvore Set Here.

Everyone loved this skirt last week, so I thought that I would use it again.  Here, I paired it with the navy tee and a short-sleeved blouse for a work look that is both preppy and pulled together.  I would tuck the white shirt in, and you could also tuck in the sweater if you wanted to add a wide belt at the top of the skirt.

For jewelry, I wanted a color that would play up the brightness of the skirt and compliment the navy, so I chose turquoise.  Paired with a gold stud earring, this necklace dresses up the ensemble for work. If you skip the necklace and add a grey tight and grey flat boot, you could wear it on a casual day.

Lastly, since it’s pre-Fall I added a trench coat and patent leather pumps.  But if you wanted to take the academic prepster look to the next level, you could wear a camel or navy schoolboy blazer and brown flat boots.   I might also add a cream scarf and a beige ballet flat if I wanted to wear this look on the plane or on a casual Friday.  The point being that three foundation pieces (skirt, blouse, striped tee) are very versatile and can be more glamorous or more casual depending on your mood or occasion.
