10th Commandment: January 21

Jan 21, 2014

Last week, we discussed transition pieces that can you through winter into spring.  One of the best year-round pieces you can own is a great navy striped shirt.  It’s a great layering piece and it looks great alone.

Iris & Ink Striped Top ($60)

After three years of consistent wear, my Gap tee is finally showing its age.  I purchased this top from The Outnet, and it is a great shirt for the price. The fabric is a cross between a lightweight knit and a mid-weight tee.  It hits in a good place on the hip–not too long, not too short.  My one piece of advice would be that, since the top is a bit boxy, small-chested ladies may want to size down.

Prefer a traditional t-shirt?  I like this Marc Jacobs Pam Tee and this JCP top for $15.  Want the navy to be the dominant shade?  Try this LOFT boatneck tee ($29, also in petite) or this Old Navy tee ($10, also in petite and tall).  Need a v-neck?  Try this Gap Essential Tee ($24, petite and tall).

Plus-size? Ralph Lauren Boat Neck tee ($65), Land’s End Striped Tee ($29)

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
