Everyone here at Shopbop has a favorite brand, but one thing we all agree on is stocking up on T by Alexander Wang basics. Sure, statement pieces are really fun to buy, but it’s the simple staples that really build a wardrobe. To show just how versatile these layering tees are, two of our stylists showed off their skills with a striped long-sleeve top.
Karina: I love this T by Alexander Wang top because of the fabric and print. It’s worth the cost because it’s somehow lightweight but substantial at the same time—the linen is airy and loose and perfect for popping over a tank or a statement bra in the summer, but so easy to transition into cooler seasons. I’ll be layering it under a blazer or even a denim vest come fall. The stripe is thin enough that it’s not outright preppy, but it could certainly go that direction—think a pair of colored denim shorts with ballet flats. It can just as easily be worn with an edgy spin. I wear it with harem pants, lace-up sandals, and my favorite Pamela Love jewelry.
Rachel: T by Alexander Wang is one of my favorite brands, and hands-down worth the extra pennies due to the comfortable fabric. This striped linen top has been in heavy rotation since I purchased it. It’s a great lightweight layer to have on hand for the summer into early fall. It can be paired with denim cutoffs, or if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous you can have fun with print on print or texture. I love styling stripes with floral prints, or stripes with textured tweed. I get the most comments on these ensembles that play with juxtaposition!
